  • Santa Claus: The Movie 1985

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 14 Dec, 2014

    The christmas industry does an "X-Men Origins" and tells the story of how Santa Claus got his red suit and wound up shakin' his belly like a bowl full of jelly.
    And it's super cute!
    If this film doesn't fill you with christmas spirit.... I am tempted to smack you!

    "I... I...." I muttered.
    "Are you okay?" she said, looking at me, with a worried expression.
    "Yes, I think so," I answered. There was a tone of melancholy in my voice.

  • Home Alone 1990

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 10 Dec, 2014 2

    To avoid the awful experience that is "realizing a pretty fond childhood memory actually no longer isn't that funny," I have watched this film at least once a year ever since it was released back in '90. Works like a charm. I totally love this film! Still.
