ATTENTION READERS: As a Christmas present to my faithful readers, I'm going to offer you guys a contest. The winner will receive a Cinemark movie gift card so you can get out there and see the movie of your choice currently in theaters. Here's what's gonna happen: after the 25 days of Christmas posts are up, I'll do a post that lists the entire 25 days of Christmas Movies and it will be your job to tell me which one is your favorite! (DON'T DO THAT HERE! WAIT TIL THE END!) When that post airs leave a comment below telling me which one was your favorite and you'll be entered to win. In the meantime, every comment during each post in the 25 Days of Christmas Movies Series will count as an additional entry. The winner will be announced sometime between Christmas and New Years Eve. Good luck! And on with the 25 Days....
LAST MOVIE WATCHED: Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas
TO WATCH OR NOT TO WATCH: I have always loved this movie....the original animated classic that is-- don't ever think I liked the horrible live action remake with Jim Carrey that completely botches up the wonderful simplicity found in the animated classic. The songs are great and the message is wonderful. You can't really watch this movie without having your heart touched a little bit when the Grinch realizes that "Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store...maybe Christmas....perhaps...means a little bit more." Plus bonus points for Max the dog.....he probably has got to be up there with my favorite movie/tv pooches (which list is admittedly very small.)
EMILY RATING: 10/10
