It’s That Time of the Year: Christmas Movies Favorites

Tuesday, 13 December 2011 03:10 Written by  Songine' Clarke

Christmas is almost here, and you know what that means – old and new Christmas movies for the holidays. There are so many movies that we have to watch when the holidays get here. There are those movies that you loved to watch as a child, the oldies but goodies, and then the new ones that are released every year around this time. Here are three of my favorites that never gets old:

1. A Charlie Brown Christmas. I love all of the Charlie Brown movies! I guess you can say it’s the kid in me. “This Charlie Brown” movie is probably my favorite because of two scenes. I love the scene where the character Schroeder plays the piano, and all of the kids start dancing – it’s just too cute! My other favorite scene is when the character Linus goes into a monologue, and says what Christmas is all about. This movie is definitely a great family movie.

2. This Christmas. If it wasn’t for the cast, this movie wouldn’t have stood a chance. The casting director did an amazing job having Idris Elba, Loretta Devine, Regina King, Laz Alonso, and Columbus Short (just to name a few) all in one movie. “This Christmas” was also a great family movie that showed the issues a family can go through, and how they can get through them together. I also liked this movie because some of the scenes reminded me of my family.




3. Elf. Okay, as you can see, I get into “kid mode” when Christmas comes around. The movie “Elf” is a good movie for the family, and it is guaranteed to make you laugh. Will Ferrell did a great job staying in character for a family movie, but still kept some of his humor in the role. Whenever this movie comes on television I am glued to it like it’s my first time seeing it.
