Blogmas Day 3 - Christmas Movies


Hello my lovelies,

Welcome to day three of my Blogmas today I am going to give you the run down of my favourite Christmas Movies, some are old some are new. So without further ado here is my list of Christmas a movies in no particular order.


Miracle on 34th Street.

I love this movie as it always takes me back to when I was a little kid and whenever it was on I knew it was only a few days until I'd be sat opening my presents and stuffing myself silly on sweets and Turkey (not necessarily together). To this day I still feel that way.


Rise of the Guardians

Now this is relatively new to me. I've only seen it once and it's not only a Christmas movie, but it has elements of Easter (easter bunny) along with the sandman, tooth fairy, Jack Frost. Also I'm a sucker for cartoons, I love them, I am after a Disney fanatic and yes ok this isn't Disney, but it should have been.


The Polar Express

I love this film and how the characters look like the actors, especially the train conductor. Also the soundtrack is amazing, I'll admit that some of the songs are on my playlist (although I didn't add them to yesterday's post). It also shows you how different children from different backgrounds are, you have your spoilt brat who I can't stand if I'm honest, it could be that he reminds me of someone I used to go to school with or the actor is really good at being a brat lol, you also have the girl who likes everyone and sees the good in everyone which is nice and then you have the kid who is shy, parents don't have a lot of money and just keeps himself to himself but also like it when other people talk to him. If I'm honest it does make me cry because of the underlying message of never treating someone differ et to you especially at this time of year.


Love Actually

This film is amazing I love Bill Nighy he is just a great actor and his character is so funny and I love that he released a Christmas song under the name of the character from the film. I don't always like a film that has different stories running through it as it makes it hard to follow, but this film does it really well and somehow they all seem to fit with each other which is good.


The Grinch

Now when I first saw this film I though 'oh my god what has Jim Carrey done!' But I've watched it again recently and I have to admit I loved it and it's down to Jim Carrey and how he is as an actor. Again it has a message of not judging people and that people can change.


It's A Wonderful Life

I love this film especially in the black and white (don't like how it's been remastered to colour it just doesn't feel right) anyway every year my family and I have to watch this it wouldn't be Christmas if we didn't. For those of you who haven't seen it, I won't spoil it all I will say is that it's about a man who doesn't like his life and is given a chance of seeing what everyone's lives would be like if he wasn't there. It's very heart warming and does make you think about your own life and what others would be like if you hadn't been apart of their life. 


White Christmas 

Again another great film, mainly because I love old films (I love 40s, 50s and 60s era) also Bing Crosby can't have a Christmas song or film without him. He along with Nat King Cole and Dean Martin are the Three Wise Men of Christmas (see what I did there 😄).


Finally you have The Muppets Christmas Carol

Again it won't be Christmas without watching this film. Like It's A Wonderful Life my family and I (or rather my mum and sister and I) have to watch it. I love how they have taken a classic like A Christmas Carol and managed to tell it in a way that children would love. The one thing that scared me when I was younger was The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. That was scary, but other than that I love the film, I love the music, the songs and of course the marvellous Michael Caine, such a great and versatile actor.

So there is my list of favourite Christmas films although I'm sure there is more. I know there's Disneys version of A Christmas Carol (Animated) with Jim Carrey and like The Polar Express you can see in the characters the actors who voice them FYI Jim Carrey voices more than one. Disney have made it for the whole family, you have the animation for the kids and a few jokes for the adults if you haven't seen it I highly suggest you do.

I would love to hear what your favourite films are! Just post them in the comments below.
