Here is a list of some of my favorite Christmas movies and cds! All of the movies are available on DVD!

it_a_wonderful_life_dvd_large“It’s a Wonderful Life” Starring James Stewart and Donna Reed. This is a classic, black and white Christmas movie!

images“White Christmas” Starring Danny Kaye, Rosmary Clooney, and Bing Crosby. This is one of my favorite Christmas movies! It has the best music, and great dances!

“Holiday Inn” Starring Fred Astair and Bing Crosby. This is a great Christmas, or any holiday movie! It’s a classic black and white, musical.

e52“Holiday Affair” Starring Robert Mitchum. This is such a good movie! They also re-made it in the 90’s. Both versions are great, but I think I like the original the best!

i“Gremilns” Ok, this isn’t exactly a Christmas movie, but it does take place during Winter, and during Christmas!

3243“Noel By Josh Groban” This is Josh Grobans first Christmas cd! It’s really great, and I’m not even a Christmas music type of person!

images1Ashley Tisdales “Last Christmas” single. You can get this song on ITunes! It’s really good!

yrt“Bishop’s Wife” Starring Cary Grant and Loretta Young. This is a really good, fun Christmas movie!

yrt1“Mrs Santa Claus” Starring Angela Lansbury. This is a cute Christmas musical! Angela Lansbury is really good in it!

Troy Bolton: “East High is a place where teachers encouraged us to break the status quo and define ourselves as we choose. Where a jock can cook up a mean crème brulee, and a brainiac can break it down on the dance floor. It’s a place where one person, if it’s the right person, changes us all. East High is having friends we’ll keep for the rest of our lives, and that means we really are ‘all in this together’. Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat ! ”

This is probably the last HSM, or at least the last one with the original cast. They really seemed to step it up for this one! The music numbers are so much better then the other 2, and the music is great.

 A lot happens in this movie. It’s the last year for Troy and the gang. They have finals, prom, graduation, and even the last musical they’ll ever do at East High. Troy struggles with what he wants to do with his life, and so does Gabriella. Troy finds out that he has been entered to get a scholrsip at Julliard, but his whole life, he and his dad have dreamed of him becoming a basketball star.

Gabriella always thought that she would go to a college, but she starts to question herself about going, because the she would have to leave Troy and all of her friends behind.

Sharpay is her usual selfish self! But she’s calmed down a little! Sharpay has a great music number, “I Want It All’, that is quite a bit better then “Fabulous” It’s very 1940’s, with the type of music, props, and dance! I was really disappointed though that Sharpay, played by Ashley Tisdale, wasn’t in the movie very much. And Ryan, played by Lucas Grabeel wasn’t either!

And now, we find that their are 3 new kids, which makes it look like they are going to make a 4th one. The new kids are: Tiara, played by Jemma McKenzie-Brown, Jimmy “The Rocket”, played by Matt Prokop, and Donny, played Justin Martin. I don’t think any of them are that great though. But it’s pretty obvious that they will be the new “HSM kids” in a 4th movie. It looks like Tiara will take over Sharpays character, and Jimmy will probably be the new Troy.

 Another great music number was “Take My Hand” sung by Troy and Gabriella. They did a beautiful waltz!

“A Night To Remember” is done by the cast of the last musical. It’s about the prom, and getting ready for it.  I wish they would have done a ‘real’ prom number though, and not just the stage performance. But the song, and the dance was really amazing!

 

One of my favorite musical numbers was “Scream” sung by Troy. After he finds out that Gabriella won’t come back from college to go to the prom. He’s pretty upset, so he goes to East High, and sings about how he’s so confused. Some people in the theater were laughing, probably because it is a little ‘over the top’, but I liked it anyway! They even used a old trick, making the whole room spin, so that Troy is walking on the wall, and ceiling. That was first used in a Fred Astaire movie, “Royal Wedding”!  Audiences thought that is was just amazing back then, but I guess if it’s not CGI, it’s not that cool!

The last music number, “We’re All In This Together, the Graduation” was really good to. But a little sad, since it’s the last time we’ll see Troy, Gabriella, Chad, Taylor, and Sharpay for the last time!

I LOVED this movie! I really think it’s the best of the 3. I don’t think that Vanessa Hudgens, Gaberilla, did that great of a job though. She’s a great singer and dancer, but just not a great actress. I loved all the music numbers, except “Right Here, Right Now” just didn’t seem to fit. And it really annoyed me that they had 3 new kids in it, it’s so obvious that they will be the new cast, and none of them are even that good! But all and all, I give this movie 9/10 stars!

1. BB Good  
2.Burnin’Up  
3.Shelf 
4.One Man Show  
5.Lovebug

High School Musical Cast

 Photobucket

This fairy-tale, musical stars Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Timothy Spall, Idina Menzel and Susan Saradon. The movie stars out as a cartoon, but after the evil queen pushes Giselle into a well, she becomes a real person in New York. This was not the best movie I’ve ever seen! I really disliked it! It wasn’t very good acting, and it was VERY boring! I give it a D-.

This movie stars Raven Symone and Martin Lawrence. Raven plays a girl who’s getting ready to go to college, but her dad doesn’t want her to go to one that isn’t close to home. So he decides to go on a road trip with her to find the perfect college! I actually liked this movie!! It didn’t get that great of reviews, but I thought it was good. It did have some really dumb parts though! I give it a C.

college road trip

This movie stars Laurence Fishburne, Angela Bassett and Keke Palmer. Palmer plays a girl who loves to spell, and is very good at it!With help from her family and friends, she makes it to the Scripps National Spelling Bee! I give this movie a A-.

This is Vanessa Hudgens first cd (other than High School Musical soundtracks). This was a pretty good cd! Some of the best songs are “Come Back To Me”, “Drive”, “and “Never Underestimate a Girl”. I give this cd a B.

Vanessa Hudgens

Noel~Josh Groban

This is Josh Groban’s first Christmas cd! It might also be his last, because he said that he dosen’t think he’ll make another one. It has 13 tracks, and you can buy the special edtion with a 20 minute making-of dvd. He sings with Faith Hill, Brian McKnight, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. With gutarist, Andy Mckee. Josh Groban sings all the great Christmas songs, such as “Little Drummer Boy”, “Silent Night”, “Ave Maria”, “Thankful”, and many more. I LOVED this cd! I’m actually not a fan of Christmas music, but I love Josh Groban’s cd, and this one is great! The dvd is also really good too! I give it a A++!

This movie will be coming out on the Disney Channel in August 2008. The plot is that the cheetah girls will be going to star in a movie, but they find out that they will have to be competing against each other to get the lead. This movie will not be staring Raven Symone because she said, “There are talks of doing another one, but my schedule is so busy, I don’t have the time.”

This movie will star Raven Symone, Martin Lawernce, and Joe Lo Trugilo. The release date is for March 7, 2008. Raven plays a girl who’s going to college, and has a very overprotective cop for a dad, so he decides to come along! This looks like a really funny movie, and I can’t wait to see it!!

This Original Disney Channel movie stars Sara Paxton and Lucas Grabell (HSM and HSM2). Paxton plays a ‘good witch’ (think like the “Bewitched” tv show) who goes to the witches university to study magic and find out who she really is, but runs into some bully’s! This was a ‘cute’ but kiddish movie. Okay story, good acting, but nothing spectacular. Nice movie, but not a great one! I give it a C-.

This movie stars Corbin Bleu (High School Musical), Keke Palmer, and David Reivers. Bleu plays a guy who is torn between being a boxer, which is his dads wish, or doing double dutch. I give this movie a B.

They premiere was on Tuesday 14, where the cast (except Corbin Bleu) and other stars were there with fans!Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The 3rd Cheetah Girls is due to air on tv by June 2008. The director will be Kenny Ortega (The Newsies, High School Musical, and the other 2 Cheetah Girls). It will star Adrienne Bailon, Sabrina Bryan, Keily Williams, and Lori Anne Alter. It won’t star Raven though. The other 2 movies are ok, more for younger kids. Their are some good music numbers in them though. The only reason I saw the first 2 was because Raven was in them! I don’t think the 3rd one will be that good, since Raven isn’t going to be in it!Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Here’s some more news on HSM 2 that I found on the internet and in the Disney Adventures  magazine.

School’s out! Sharpays going to have a pink Mustang Convertable!! And their are rumors of a pink grand piano too! She’s also going to have a little Yorkie,( The director Kenny Ortega owns the dog in real life!) “Sharpay is definitely worse in this movie. She is more of a villain, but you still get to see her vulnerable side of her that no one has seen before.” ~Ashely Tisdale~Sharpay

Zac Effron ( most recently in the movie ‘Hairspray’) said “We take the characters through a whole completely different set of adventures, and there’s a love tirangle. It’s really a different story.” when he was asked if HSM 2 will be different from the first HSM.

Lucas Grabeel (Ryan) recently had knee surgery, but he is still dancing in this movie, even though he had a knee brace and a back brace on. “It was a lot of fun, and I had a blast on the baseball field. I hadn’t played in 10 years, but it was great.” (He’s talking about a dance number that takes place on a baseball diamond.

Gabriella will work with Troy as a lifeguard at Ryans and Sharpays’ fathers country club, Lava Springs.

The soundtrack is going to come out on August 14, 2007 at walmart and other stores. And the movie will air on the Disney Channel on August 17, 2007!
