Everything But Books
Fun and more fun, but none of it relating to books (because I have another page for that)

All I want for Christmas is Film

Now that Thanksgiving is done and everyone is in a food coma, I think it is time to think about Christmas. Okay, it may not be December yet, but who cares? I’m ready for another holiday…aren’t you?

In the spirit of the holidays, I have decided to choose my top 5 Christmas movies. Now, some classics may or may not be in here but I promise you all these movies are well worth the watch. The list will go from 5-1, 1 being my favorite. ENJOY!


Because let’s be honest, who doesn’t love Macaulay Culkin. Am I the only person who wished her parents left her home alone so she could make cool traps like that? Sure hope not.



Like every sane person in 1he 90s, I was a huge Tim Allen fan. Although, if you think about it, the storyline is pretty morbid. I mean, he (SPOILER) kills Santa, then replaces him. Not sure that’s how things in the real world go… Great movie though.



Now, I know this should be number one…I mean it’s in my top 5 favorite movies of all time, BUT in my defense numbers 3 and 2 are kind of equal when it comes to how many times I have watched them (which is about 10 times each). This movie makes me seriously appreciate life and realize that the smallest things can have a huge effect on people’s futures.



My god do I love this movie and honestly, I never thought I would love a movie with Jack Black– but behold, I do. Jude Law isn’t bad to look at either. There are some really tender moments in this movie and some really hilarious moments. Definitely a feel good movie– especially toward the end.



Probably the most romantic/heartbreaking/lovable movie ever. My heart hurts a little every time I watch this for various reasons. And for the best reasons. A perfect article to read right after this movie is found below:


Dont try to read it before you have seen the movie, because it won’t make sense. It is probably the only all-star cast film that actually works perfectly. Again, I love this movie so much it hurts!

 Anyway, hope you enjoy this list and it helps you through the holidays. Now I’m going to go and watch Love Actually. So freaking good.
