I’m a huge movie fan. Have I told you that? If you love movies, you know that this time of year is a movie fan’s dream. I started this as one post, but I had so many movies I had to break them into two. This one is just for adults.
It’s not that kids can’t watch some of them, but these movies are for when the kids go to bed, the fire is lit, and your cup of hot cocoa is in hand. Nothing but bliss, I tell ya. So here we go.
#5. White Christmas. Does anything matter after Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye? I could watch them sing and dance for hours, and the fact that I lu-huve the set of this movie sure does help.
#4. The Family Stone. Speaking of visuals (and you’ll find this to be a common theme within my list), that house! It’s busy, warm, and full of family memories. It’s a bonus that there are some gooood lookin’ people in this movie. I have a crush on Rachel McAdams.
#3. Bridget Jones’s Diary. It’s awkward and funny at the same time. I do well with that. Throw some snow and an ugly Christmas sweater in there, and it’s darn near the perfect Christmas movie.
#2. Swoon. I mean…The Holiday. Exhibit A: Jude Law. Exhibit B: That cottage. This is such a good movie. It’ll speak for itself.
And #1? Love Actually! It’s a no-brainer. I’m a sucker for ensemble casts and parallel storylines. Traffic? Valentine’s Day? The upcoming New Year’s Eve? You bet. This one is by far my favorite. I was trying to choose a favorite storyline to share with you, and I couldn’t! Love them all. I guess that’s why it’s #1.
I’m sure you’ve got some favorites of your own. Share them with me and others in the comments, so we can get our movie-watching on until Christmas. I’ll be back later with my list for “family friendly” favorites!
