    I watched The Bishop's Wife this afternoon. (Cary Grant) - Gotta love those old Xmas flicks!

    another one of my favorites at Christmas is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase... too damn funny...

    Have to check out "Rent". Plus, I still watch "The Sound of Music" every year.

    I don't go to the cinema,though I always find most of the movies on DVD or VCR. Last night I saw Flight Plan but It was disappointing I really was waiting for a movie like "Panic Room" and the plot wasn't believable at all. I also saw Red Eye and was good

    I liked the New Batman, I also saw Charlie and the chocolate factory (Yummy Mr. Depp),Zathura was ok.

    About Classical Movies for Christmas I love:

    A Christmas Carol- George C. Scott was amazing at it.
    Scrooged- Bill Murray (this is a very good one)
    Elf- Will Ferrel- James Caan
    Christmas Lampoons- Chevy Chase is almost a must every year.
    Miracle on 34th Street-Richard (or David?) Attenborough's newer version.
    Family Man- Nicolas Cage
    and well there are more,though those are my favorites, also I like one that hasn't shown for years that is with Dudley Moore -don't even remember the name well but I think it's Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus .

    Twilight in the Garden of Good and Evil
    I hope the Chronicles of Narnia movie(s?) turn out good, they certainly have a lot of potential. And as for Aeon Flux, I'm totally stoked that the complete animated collection is finally out on dvd as Aeon Flux is my all time favorite animated series. However I just can't imagine that the movie will do it any justice, I'm probably going to skip that one to save myself the disapointment and not blemish Aeon in my mind. I would like to see Walk the Line, that looks interesting.
