Tin TIn the Movie

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas and are still enjoying the season. Both of us have been camped out at our parents the past few days with the siblings, having lots of fun, and eating way too much.

Yesterday we ventured out to watch the new Tin Tin Movie. Having been a huge fan when I was little, I was both excited and nervous to see the results of the film. I’m pleased to say it was incredible. The animation was insanely brilliant, and the story and characters followed true to the books. It’s a sure winner for both the kiddies and adults.

There’s a list of good movies I’m excited to see this season, what have you guys been watching?

All Time Favorite Christmas Movies

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

There are so many Christmas movies out there, and I love a lot of them. Lets face it’s a great it’s a great subject, and I enjoy all the different takes on the season, but there are only a few movies that are a MUST watch this time of year, so here they are my six favs, will you join me for the countdown?

No. 6 Santa Clause the Movie: not to be confused with The Santa Clause, I’m talking Dudley Moore NOT Tim Allen. This was my childhood favorite, I’ve never seen a North Pole so magical it still makes me giddy:)

No. 5 The Family Man: I’ll love Nicolas Cage forever because of this role. An endearing story of past and present, and all that’s important in life.

No. 4: Little Women: An affectionate story about sisters, growing up, highs and lows. They had me at sisters, but add victorian scenery and fashion and I’m sold!

No. 3: The Holiday: A realistic observation of England vs. America, and the charm of both. Add a romantic Jude Law, and to die for set design, and you’ve made me a classic.

No.2 Elf: Hilarious, Movies don’t get much funnier than this. I’ll watch it any time of the year when I need a good giggle.

No 1. The Muppet Christmas Carol: Our Families all time Classic, is the twist on the old classic. Dicken’s story told true, with the humor of the Muppets. I’m not kidding when I say I’ve seen grown men cry watching this. The music with tug on your heart strings, it’s a goodie!

There you go, that’s my countdown…and I’m realizing there’s so many more I LOVE (Home Alone…hello!). I’m sure we have some faves in common, but have your own too. Now go snuggle up by your tree and turn on a good flick!

Fall Movies

Monday, September 19th, 2011

I love a good movie to get me in the mood for a season, and I have a couple of trusty faves for fall.

The first, is one of my favorite movies of all time: When Harry Met Sally. I watch this movie over and over again, I just love the interaction between the two characters; any movie that you can laugh and cry at is a winner in my book. New York in the fall is a perfect setting for the most heart-warming part in the movie, when two finally become friends.

The second movie, is Stepmom. I was talking about this with my sister the other day, because neither of us really love or relate the story line but we both watch and enjoy. For me, I think it’s the coziness of the home that Susan Sarandon character creates: home cooked meals, handmade costumes, school plays, and hanging out in pj’s.

As far as movie houses are concerned, I’d choose the east coast home in Marley & Me for my fall residence.

Doesn’t it look perfect to host a Thanksgiving feast?
