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!

They are having a remake of the 1951 movie, The Day the Earth Stood Still! It’s coming out 12-12-08! It’s going to starKeanu Reeves, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, John Cleese, Kathy Bates, Jaden Smith, Aaron Douglas, and J.C. MacKenzie.
Here are 2 new posters for it!

This comedy stars Myrna Loy and Cary Grant. Loy and Grant play a married couple with two girls who are living in a small apartment in a big city. Tired of always bumping into each other in their tiny apartment, they decide to buy a big old house in the country. It doesn’t go as well as they hope! They find out that they have to tear the house down, and build a new one. But it’s not as easy as it sounds! Every minute something goes wrong, from having no windows to not finding any water for their well! This is one of the funniest movies ever!!!! Grant and Loy are GREAT together! I give this movie a A+++!!!

 

 

This movie, directed by William Castle, stars Charles Herbert, Jo Morrow, and Rosemary DeCamp. This movie is about a family who inherits a house, and the 13 ghosts that live there! This was a pretty good movie, not one of my favorite Castle movies though. I give it a B-.

 

This remake of a Ingrid Bergman movie stars Joan Crawford, Melvyn Douglas, and Conrad Veidt. Crawford plays a lady who’s face is badly disfigured. She falls in love with a man who happens to be a blackmailer! This was a very good movie!! I give it a A-.

This movie stars Gene Raymond, Franchot Tone and Joan Crawford. Crawford plays a maid who becomes the wife of a wealthy, older man. This was an ok movie, not Crawford’s best, and definitely not one of Gene Raymond’s best movies! I give it a C.

Here are some more pics from the upcoming movie, “Batman, the Dark Knight”, which is coming out in theaters summer of 2008.

This movie stars George Raft, Ann Sheridan, Ida Lupino, and Humphrey Bogart. Bogart and Raft play truck drivers who are always trying to get ahead, but keep falling behind. Ida Lupino really steals this movie! I give it a B+.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Judy Garland and Van Johnson star in this musical, Technicolor, re-make of “Shop Around the Corner” (which has been recently re-made again, “You’ve Got Mail”). It takes place during the victorian times, and Garland plays a girl who gets a job at a music store, where Johnson also works. They both are writing to a secret person, and they are actually writing to each other! They don’t get along at all, and are always fighting in the store! There are some really good music numbers that Judy Garland does! I give this movie an B+!

She looks totally normal,except one thing, she’s a witch! And she marries a mortal, and her mom (Agnes Moorhead) does not approve of him at all!! This was a comedy TV show that fan from 1964-1972. I love these shows! They are really funny!! I give it an A+!!Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This is the  remake of the 1933 version, stars Naomi Watts, Jack Black, Adrien Body, Colin Hanks, and Jamie Bell.  I thought it was way to long(3 hours and 8 minutes!) I think there was a lot of stuff that could have been cut out, because it started to drag at time! They did a good job with king kong special effects. I hated the ‘zombie’ people. I think it was just way to much! I give this movie a B-!Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketThis movie stars Claude Rains as the phantom, Nelson Eddy as Roul, and Susanna Foster as Christine. It’s based on the book by Gaston Leroux.

The newer version based on the book by Jane Austen. It stars Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen. She meets Mr.Darcey and can’t even imagine marrying him, but ends up falling in love with him. I didn’t care for the actor who played Mr.Darcey, but Keira Knightley was really good in it. It was a little to long! I give this movie a B!Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

In this re~make of the old herbie movies, Lindsay Lohan owns Herbie after finding him in a junk yard. Herbie is a ’63 bug that really has a mind and heart of it’s own!

Herbie does some neat tricks in this movie!  I give this movie a B.
