This week’s movie marathon features the films I like to watch during the Christmas season. I come from a small family, and after we eat our delicious meal, talk, clean up a bit and stare at each other for a while, all that’s left to do really, is watch some movies. So cozy up with a blanket and a good cup of eggnog and enjoy.
1. Doctor Zhivago (David Lean, 1965): Perhaps not the happiest (or shortest) of films, but this wintery Russian film will take you on a journey of love and struggle. An epic tale that warms, and breaks my heart every time I watch it
2. Edward Scissorhands (Tim Burton, 1990): The whole time, I just ask myself “why did this scientist think SCISSORS was a good idea for hands?!” But then, I guess we wouldn’t have a movie. You just have to go with it; it’s quirky and lovely and all the characters are so unique. And you see Winona Ryder as a blonde. Yup.
3. The Family Man (Brett Ratner, 2000): I am such a sucker for this film. I know it’s Nicholas Cage and I know it’s cheesy, but I can’t help myself, I love it! So here is my confession. It’s a beautiful story; just try it. Please?
That’s it for this week’s Monday Movie Marathon. Hope you all have a happy holiday season to spend time with family and friends. And perhaps discover a love for some new films!
