I have only two Christmas favorites I watch faithfully each year. Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer and How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Last night it was the Grinch's turn.

Watching these two movies each year is the only way I participate in the Christmas holidays. It is the only thing I can afford. With 18 grand and great grandchildren, I have chosen to watch these two movies instead. My kids don't need or want anything. Two of my kids have already retired. Wait a minute. Make that three kids. Two on permanent disability.

I have been Christmas binge-watching. I have watched all three "The Santa Clause" movies (number 2 was my favourite) and just finished "The Holiday" with a great cast.

Next are some Hallmark romances.

I probably should have known better, but I watched on Netflix streaming a Quentin Tarantino movie I hadn't heard about. Oh, my. Titled, The Hateful Eight, it had a good cast -- Kurt Russell, Samuel Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh (who looked as bad as I've ever seen a Hollywood star look), Tim Roth (a fave of mine) and Walton Goggins (another new fave). Absolute buckets of blood! Not very Christmas-y but a heckuva Tarantino film.

I watched it too, knowing it was Tarantino, but loving the cast. I felt exactly the same as you. Much of it was watched from between my fingers LOL!

I watched The Great Wall with Matt Damon the other day.
Meh.

Predictable, but at least not a complete waste of time.

Matt Damon was at your house? Or did he stop by the studio and the two of you watched it there?

The Holiday.... a 2006 movie starring Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, and Jude Law .

I've seen it probably a dozen times - it's an adorable movie about two ladies who are fed up with unhappy holiday break ups - they meet online on a home vacation trading site, switch up their quaint English countryside cottage and sprawling Beverly Hills home with each other for the holiday season to get away from the heartbreak, and the rest is history. Very cute movie.
