The Show Must Go On

I decided today that since Christmas movies are playing non-stop on TV and the Christmas songs are blasting in the stores, I may as well take a moment to share with you all MY FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MOVIES. I really only have 5 favorites, so I'll share them with you here!


Okay so this came out in 2004, which means I was 23 when I saw it. And I felt like a kid again after seeing it. It was made so intricately and so astonishingly well. I got the DVD for Christmas the year it came out and was soooo excited! And then I bought it again a few months ago because they re-released it in 3D! If you can afford it, go get the 3D version! It's so cool!

--- My Favorite Line From The Movie---
"The thing about trains... it doesn't matter where they're going. What matters is deciding to get on. "


This used to be my #1 before THE POLAR EXPRESS. I don't know what it is, but I love stop motion animation just makes me smile. It's old-school, but it's still awesome!

--- My Favorite Line From The Movie---
"That's why I'm a misfit toy. My name is all wrong. No child wants to play with a Charlie-In-The-Box so I had to come here. "


Here's where it gets tricky...

I'm not talking about the traditional Babes In Toyland with Annette Funicello. No, you see, in 1986, there was a Made-For-TV Remake of Babes in Toyland and I fell in love with it! What's funny is that I've tried for years to convince my brother that it exists...and I still don't think he believes me. Well, if he checks out my blog, then he'll know. ;)

And yes, that is a young Keanu Reeves! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

I really love the CINCINNATI song they sing in it too! And I love that it's got a twist on the original. :D

--- My Favorite Line From The Movie---
"Why don't you keep your business out of other people's noses? I think I wrote that down wrong, but you know what I mean."


This is a follow up to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer! Again, it's got the stop-motion animation that I love and it introduces some funny new characters. I remember seeing it as a kid and wanting to visit the Archipelago Islands and experience life in all the different years! This movie makes me smile a lot!

--- My Favorite Line From The Movie---
"Those Ears!! Those Ears!! Those Ears!!!"


This is my FAVORITE version of the Christmas Carol story! It's so dark and comedic! Bill Murray is totally nuts in it!! And I love Carol Kane's performance as the Ghost of Christmas Present. And Bobcat Goldthwait is hilarious in it too! I really love the twist it gives to one of the most traditional stories for Christmastime.


Okay, well that's my list. What are some of your favorites???
