We Just Watched Another Terriffic Christmas Movie on Netflix Streaming.

Check out a wonderful little Finnish movie simply entitled "Christmas Story".

It may not bequite exciting enough for little ones but my wife and I truly enjoyed it'ssimplicity and gentleness. The music was wonderful and the dubbing was done very well rather that the kind of kung fu movie cheesyness that we're used to.

If you're the type of movie viewer who likes a good, gentle, simple and well done little movie check it out. If you're very pumped off because Jean Claude Van Damme has never won an Oscar for Best Actor, you might want to take a pass.

We gave it a wholehearted 5 stars and would have given more if we could. Enjoy!

PEACE!

2. Wonder Years is one of those shows...

...that I always knew was clearly a quality show but never got into at the time it was on. Maybe we'll check it out now. Thanx.

PEACE!

3. Thanks!

I've been batting zero lately as far as picking movies goes, so am always looking for recommendations!

4. Your Welcome!

We also discovered the Jim Carrey version of "A Christmas Carol" last week and loved it.

Also on Netflix streaming is a movie I've loved for 40+ years, "Fitzwilly" with Dick Van Dyke and Barbara Feldon.

PEACE!

6. We Don't have cable,...

...and usually don't miss it. This would have been a good night to have TNT though.

Which version of "Nicholas Nickleby"? The one from a few years ago with Nathan Lane, Christopher Plummer, Anne Hathaway & Romola Garai (IMHO a VASTLY underappreciated actress) is one of my wife's and my favorute movies.

PEACE!

9. No I watched the very old version. I think it was in 1937 (black and white)

 

In fact all 3 were old versions and my favorites. Every year I look forward to watch A Christmas a Christmas Carol with Alstair Sims. I can watch that at least 2 or 3 times, lol. I have to tell you there are lots of christmas movies on during december on all the channels.

15. Do you remember high school lit class?

Remember when the class was reading Dickens or Austen or Hardy or Shakespere there was always one obnoxious kid in the class who LIKED it?

In my class that obnoxious kid was ME!

You are right. There is great stuff out there to re-visit.

PEACE!
