• Scrooged



    The second Christmas Carol in my Christmas marathon, and I gotta say I preferred the shorter and tighter story from Mickey. I get why they casted Bill Murray as Scrooge, but his schmuck shtick got tiring quickly. And I don't think the writing redeemed him that well either. The movie has got some funny moments though and the whole TV watching and violence aspects are decent. But overall Mickey wins the battle.

  • Pluto's Christmas Tree

    Pluto's Christmas Tree


    The third Disney/Mickey related movie of my Christmas marathon, rounding it out with the shortest of the three because I closed today. But even though it's the shortest, it might be the best. Quick dose of slapstick and some amazing animation for the 50s had me just smiling for 7 minutes.

  • Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas

    Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas


    Continuing the Christmas marathon with another Mickey movie. One star for each cute story, containing adultish themes packaged for kids.

    1. Groundhog Christmas Day

    2. Is Santa real tho?

    3. Sometimes the people with the least, give the most.

  • Mickey's Christmas Carol

    Mickey's Christmas Carol


    The classic Charles Dickens story (of which we will watch a few renditions of during this Christmas marathon) but Mickey, so, naturally it's cute.

  • Cowboy Bebop: The Movie

    Cowboy Bebop: The Movie


    Just finished the TV show today and finished off with this movie. And what a show it was!

    I loved all 5 of these characters, including that dumb dog. They were all written so well, and with themes about how we have one eye on the past and one on the present, the show did really well to present how our past and memories mold the people we are. A big part obviously is the found family aspect, and how…

  • Die Hard 2

    Die Hard 2


    After we watched the abomination that is Love Actually, recommended by my mom's co-worker, my mom wanted a palate cleanser and asked to continue the Die Hard watch thru.

    Doesn't have the same gritty charm, lighting, and writing as the first one, and instead doubles down on the ridiculousness. But I guess it's a good enough action movie. Still not a Christmas movie though.

  • Love Actually

    Love Actually

    Love actually...only exists in movies. At least love like this anyways. The workplace relationships are a big no and all the other ones are just way too saccharine. Equivalent of eating your whole advent calendar at once while thinking about your crush at 8 years old. The tummy ache isn't your feelings Curtis.

    Britain's Crash, but less offensive.

  • Die Hard

    Die Hard


    This is not a part of the watch one Christmas movie a day marathon, because this IS NOT a Christmas movie. I will die on that hill. My mother however will die on the other hill, which is why she turned this on after we watched Genie. Die Hard is a good action film though, I will definitely give it that. Good characters, a good script, lots of explosions, and crazy action goes a long way. But what made it…

  • Genie



    The second day of a Christmas movie every day curated specifically for my mom.

    The first day was a pick by her in Candy Cane Lane. Today's pick was done by me. And well...it's her second favourite movie of 2023! My curating is just too good to be honest. But even though my mom loved it, I kind of knew that it wouldn't be my thing.

    It's cute, but very formulaic. It's your classic family is in turmoil over Christmas…

  • Candy Cane Lane

    Candy Cane Lane


    When my mom realized I was watching one new to me horror movie a day during October for Halloween, she wasn't exactly a fan. She has never liked horror movies, at all. So she kept going on that instead I should be making a Christmas movie list for every day until Christmas in December. And I kept telling her that there isn't enough Christmas movies we haven't seen that aren't just Hallmark or low quality. But she kept wanting to…

  • Finding Dory

    Finding Dory


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    They really went off the deep end with this one. And if anything I wish they went deeper into the ocean rather than focusing on all the land shenanigans. The "hands" set piece is good though; I will admit I like when they frame the fish perspective when dealing with humans, like the flashing camera in the first movie. And on the note of changing perspectives, turning Dory and her disability from a quirky side character to a fully fleshed…

  • Finding Nemo

    Finding Nemo


    Started watching online and the lag was killing me, and that's when it all came back to me like I'm Dory: I own this movie on DVD! And lo and behold in the depths of basement, I found this Pixar classic. Along with it, I found Monsters Inc, which annoyed me since I rewatched that recently too and would've have preferred the DVD, especially because I watched a low quality recording of the DVD blooper reel on YouTube.

    Anyways as…
