I've seen a quite a few films directed/co-directed by women, so here are my top 100 films, loosely ranked and…
It's Christmas Eve and we are going to go celebrate being young and being alive.
Two women, one (Cameron Diaz) from America and one (Kate Winslet) from Britain, swap homes at Christmastime after bad breakups with their boyfriends. Each woman finds romance with a local man (Jude Law, Jack Black) but realizes that the imminent return home may end the relationship.
Jude Law is the only JLaw that matters.
take out cameron diaz and jude law's scenes and this is actually watcheable
Another of the wife's picks. Oh fuck me it's awful. At least Kate Winslet kept her baps away this time. And Jack Black as a love interest,give me a fucking break.
I've never been able to extricate "myself" from writing or watching movies. This might be why I have bad taste; it is definitely why I never really wanted to be a critic. The context of all art is colored by experience - your age, your life, your wants and needs and emotional state - and rationalizations about the multitude of things that go into a movie, and into what "type" of movie, can only go so far.
Two examples: the last movie I watched was one of the best I've seen in months, Kiyoshi Kurosawa's CURE. I am writing here about Nancy Meyers' THE HOLIDAY. I am not critical of THE HOLIDAY for lacking the complex deep-focus staging of CURE,…
Is it pathetic that this is my favorite Christmas movie?
Also one of my favorite scores. Just lovely.
HOT SENSITIVE SINGLE DAD IN GLASSES JUDE LAW IS PEAK MALE ATTRACTIVENESS
Easy watching on a lazy Christmas Sunday evening. Nothing groundbreaking but loveable characters.
Christmas at its most sickly. Formulaic and bland, The Holiday failures to capture a single morsel of a holiday spirit.
The only holiday rom com I want
Christmas film marathon #4
Nancy Meyers is the queen of rom coms
look me in the eyes and tell me that you don't want to eat christmas fettuccine with jack black. see. you can't
Nothing new here, but Meyers can do this stuff standing on her head. Professionally done, well acted, just completely by the numbers.
My god Jude Law 😭 I loved this movie it was exactly what I needed to watch while studying for finals
Edit: the music!
Only watched because it's the holidays and my wife is a sap for all holiday films like this
A fun little romantic comedy, not much I can say except that I enjoyed it more than Love Actually. This movie did have some heart and good feeling to it, however I wished it focused more on Christmas since it is currently being played around Christmas time! Other than that, it is a pretty good romantic comedy with some genuine talent associated with it.

yes I know the title could be punchier
