MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYBODY!!! Well, Merry Christmas Eve, if we’re being technical, but who cares? As far as I’m concerned, Christmas is a 48-hour affair. I hope your day has been merry and bright so far, and I certainly hope you’re not one of those poor souls out doing last-minute shopping. If you are…well, Godspeed.

12 Films of Christmas 2013: The Polar Express

I debated whether or not I should even do this reblog since I’m a bit of a Grinch in it…but I feel inclined to warn anyone who might sit down for a casual watch and end up disappointed much like I was last year. So for what it’s worth, here’s last year’s review of The Polar Express.

Six days until Christmas? Twelve days of 2013 left? When did all this happen?! Still seems like this year has only just begun…Anyway, I’m kind of stalling. Why, you may ask? After watching and reviewing seven Films of Christmas—all of which I enjoyed to varying degrees—I decided to watch a film that I hadn’t ever seen before.

Three Films of Christmas have made my season bright so far, and now it’s time for a fourth! As for this one, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m a sucker for great children’s films. There’s something about really spectacular animation paired with an uplifting storyline that just gets me.

Hello, friends! Now that it’s December, I simply wouldn’t feel right letting the month slip by without discussing a few Christmas films, so I’ve decided to start a series I’m calling the 12 Films of Christmas (because I’m all cute and festive like that). As I’m sure you’ve guessed, I’ll be doing 12 reviews of various Christmas films. Most of these are among my favorites, but out of curiosity I threw in a few that I’ve never seen before.
