Well, I already have the DVR working overtime, as the Christmas movies have begun. I recorded several (9) yesterday and watched 3 of them: "Christmas Caper," "Chasing Christmas," and "A Carol Christmas." Silly and cute. I love Christmas movies!

[quote=Barbara L;731455) I love Christmas movies!Barbara[/quote]

Me too Barb!-My favorite is Christmas Vacation (Gotta love Clark Griswold's Christmas spirit and misguided love of family!) A Christmas Story (seems to transport me to a simpler, happier time)

Also, while not exactly a "movie", The Brian Setzer Orchestras Christmas Extravaganza (DVD) is always in the "high rotation" pile from Thanksgiving thru Christmas. Great music, Great fun!!

Aw heck, I can't help myself........Happy Holidays everyone!!

We just finished watching "Hancock." I had no idea what it was going to be about (other than the bits they told about on the back of the DVD case, and what they showed in previews). I really liked it. It went in directions I never saw coming.

I enjoyed it-i thought it was very funny!! I also didn't realize how pretty Goldie Hawn was back in the day! Now I see where Kate Hudson got her looks!
coincidence.......I saw Overboard two nights ago for about the 4th time and still enjoyed it.......and you're right she was fantastic looking..(she still is for her age)...so was Kurt Russell in a manly way.......just before that had seen a Bio on TV about Kurt and they said that he had gotten really good reviews for this movie with her.....

Another Christmas movie, "Snow Globe." Silly, but cute. A little different twist on the "grass is always greener..." theme.

Right now we are watching "Nick Fury..." (can't remember the rest of it). Very campy. Okay so far. I said "we" but James is snoring away in his chair and watching it through his eyelids (Of course this movie was his idea)! He often has to watch a movie a couple times.

We bought this a couple months ago but haven't seen it yet. I love Alvin and the Chipmunks! We had their "Chipmunk A-Go-Go" album when we were kids.
