Christmas Movies

Do you want to guess how many Christmas movies I’ve already watched this year?

Well, it’s December 18th, 7 days until Christmas. And I’ve already watched 10 Christmas movies. And I still have at least 2 left on my viewing list. Movies I’ve watched (and loved) so far include:

“If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that love actually is all around.”

“Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to. Don’t you see? It’s not just Kris that’s on trial, it’s everything he stands for. It’s kindness and joy and love and all the other intangibles.”

“God bless us, everyone!”

“We’ll follow the old man wherever he wants to go!”

“Where do you think you’re going? Nobody’s leaving. Nobody’s walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We’re all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We’re gonna press on, and we’re gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he’s gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.”

“For years Aunt Clara had labored under the delusion that not only was I perpetually 2 years old, but also, a girl.”

“You see George, you’ve really had a wonderful life. Don’t you see what a mistake it would be to just throw it away?”


“Peter always asked me when I fell in love with Jack. I told him it was while you were sleeping.”

“It just needed a little love”

Do you have any favorites that I left off the list?

I think I have reached a new, all-time low. Matt and I went to see a movie this weekend, and I actually teared up (read: cried) during a preview. Does it get any worse than that?

Check out the trailer here.

On the heels of  Tuesday night’s American Idol theme and the fact that Matt and I saw Adventureland last weekend, I’ve got movie soundtracks on my mind.  What are some of your favorites?  Matt loves all the instrumental stuff and owns more soundtrack CD’s than I can count.  I love movie music as much as the next guy but it’s not often that anything really stands out to me.

adventureland-soundtrackHaving said that, I loved the soundtrack for Adventureland.  The movie is set in 1987 so it’s all these great throwback songs that I didn’t necessarily know about until now.  Particularly, “Satellite of Love” by Lou Reed and “I’m in Love With a Girl” by Big Star.  They really did a great job incorporating some of the songs into the storyline.  Anyway, great movie that I’d recommend you guys check out when it gets to DVD.  I wish I could give you a better posting with the songs here but WordPress is giving me trouble.  Anyway, here are some YouTube versions if you are interested in listening.

Okay, now don’t laugh.  The only YouTube video I could find of this song is a fan video made for Twilight.  Haha

I loved the song Kris from AI sang on Tuesday so I quickly downloaded the soundtrack version last night.  It’s called “Falling Slowly”, from the movie Once.  Oh, and it happened to win the Oscar last year for best original song.

What do you guys think?  Have any favorites I should check out?

Out of the loop

Apparently when all you do is watch basketball all weekend, you fail to realize that TWILIGHT came out on DVD. Frak.
Now that the Badgers are out of the tourney, I need some Edward Cullen to cheer me up.

Slumdog Millionaire


Just in time for the Oscars, Matt and I finally saw Slumdog Millionaire last night.  As expected, I found it completely brilliant.  So heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time.  I also loved all the music, which I was not expecting.  I hope it wins Best Picture tonight, and I can’t wait to see it again!
