Musings From A Musical Mind

Day 32 – Little Women

A classic book – and then a classic movie. If you haven’t seen it – it will warm your heart. It is a MUST see for the Christmas season. Below is one of the best, and most heartbreaking scenes from the movie.

Enjoy and God Bless!

Day 31 – Elf

One of the best holiday movies ever made – if you haven’t seen “Elf” you need to stop everything you’re doing this Christmas and WATCH IT! Laugh out loud comedy – you’ll come to know ALL the dialogue in it and look forward to seeing it every year!

Enjoy and God Bless!

Day 27 – The Santa Clause

One of our favorite movies of the season. It was fun finding the ‘making of “The Santa Clause”‘ on cable the other night – which made it even more enjoyable to watch this movie again this year.

Enjoy and God Bless!

Day 20 – Miracle On 34th Street (Remake)

I love, love, LOVE this remake of an old 1947 classic, “Miracle On 34th Street”.  We watched it just the other night – it is a part of my Christmas collection and sadly, we didn’t have time to watch it last year – but it is one I enjoy even more than the original.

Enjoy and God Bless!

Day 16 – The Family Stone

My friend Keri – reminded me of this little gem a few weeks back when I had posted “Home For The Holidays” on my list of favorites for this season.  I got a copy and watched it again, and although it is a dark comedy – centering around a family during Christmas week – with all the diversities and complications therein – I would say the same thing to you before viewing it:  If you are squeamish about language, sexuality and homosexual topics and people – this is not a movie for you.  But again, this is a reality that many families have to deal with on a daily basis.  And for me – I was charmed and impressed with how they handled their differences with an unconventional mom leading the way.

I found the subject matter handled with humor and sensitivity – although it is the type of movie that can make you uncomfortable as you see those in the story dealing with their own opinions and prejudices.  And I find myself relating with many of the characters.

Charming and well written – at the heart of the story is the mom, battling breast cancer and spending her last Christmas with her grown-up family – and the eldest son bringing home the uptight girlfriend he plans to marry and offer her the family heirloom – the family stone.  It will have you laughing, feeling awkward and then crying.  Diane Keaton leads this ensemble piece of family ties, unshakable courage and a spirit of love that never dies.

Here is a little clip – enjoy and God Bless!
