7 movies for Christmas

Christmas is only 7 weeks away and what better way to get into the mood than 7 "Christmas themed" movies? Nothing!
So here's my list... Don't worry, I didn't choose "Home Alone" with Macaulay Culkin. I trust it will be on air December 24th or 25th...
  1. Jack Frost (1998) by Troy Miller with Michael Keaton and Kelly Preston. Personally, this is my favourite...It's a bit old, but I love the father-son hockey scene...I always end up crying!!! 
  2. Love Actually (2003) by Richard Curtis with Hugh GrantColin FirthAlan RickmanBill NighyKeira Knightley and Rowan Atkinson.
  3. The Family Man (2000) by Brett Ratner with Nicolas Cage and Téa Leoni
  4. Four Christmases (2008) by Seth Gordon with Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon
Love actually and Four Christmases are for those who wants to laugh and have a look on how other people react to festivities. The family man is, as contrary, the answer to the classical question "What if...?" I think that (along with Con Air), this is my favourite Nicolas Cage's movie.

Then we have the animated movies : 
  1. Rise of the Guardians (2012) animation movie by Peter Ramsey, based upon William Joyce's novels....Actually, it has NOTHING to do with Christmas, in fact it is set during Easter, BUT Santa Klaus is one of the protagonist and it's still a beautiful story of helping others and believing in good.
  2. The Polar Express (2004) animation movie by Robert Zemeckis with Tom Hank's voice
  3. Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) animation movie by Henry Selick. It's a forced choise, it's equally wierd, genius and a bit disturbing...even if you've already seen it more than one.




                                    
Hope you enjoyed the list and let the Christmas season begin!!
