Tis The Season For... Christmas Movies?

December 24th, 2008 6:20pm EST
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Aah, the holiday season. Strange how we cherish a time of year when the malls are over packed... it's cold outside... it's impossible to find a parking space... the line at the post office is out the door even at their slowest time of day... it's impossible to find the season's latest hot toy... people who have no clue what 'hustle & bustle' means and stroll slowly through busy stores so you're stuck strolling right behind them when all you want to do is get in and out. Christmas shopping is a mission, not a casual day at the mall to comparison shop. That's what the internet and the weekly ...

For those of us who worship movies as a religion we can present some gifts to ourselves, and our fellow movie lovers, by celebrating the 12 Films of Christmas. Whether you choose to lead up to Christmas with these classics or flip the ...

Starpulse's 'Top 10 Christmas Movies Of All Time'

December 1st, 2007 11:00am EST
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
I'm sitting with my family at the Thanksgiving table. At the focus is the bird carcass, a bulging centerpiece surrounded by newly stuffed bodies. The cranberry jello, still quivering in the shape of the can, is the only untouched side dish. There is a settling quiet as the full-stomached groans subside and give way to satisfied smiles, until finally somebody strikes up a conversation. Like the feeding frenzy that preceded it, it starts out slow and steadily grows more frantic.

"Oh you can't put that on there!"

"Says who? You... oh yeah.. Mr. Expert."

"I like Love Actually."...
