November 24 2018:
Team TLC Movie Night: My Choice – “The Great Rupert” aka “A Christmas Wish” …. The Great Rupert is a 1950 black & white with Jimmy Durante … Colorized in 2003 and renamed to A Christmas Wish
I say, “A squirrel as a guardian angel that answers prayers! Yep! Heartwarming Christmas miracle!!
I usually prefer black & white movies over the colorized version. However, this black and white is poor quality with many scratches and skips (unless you get your hand on the digitally remastered black & white).
I’d recommend the colorized version with the new name of “A Christmas Wish”.
Lillian says, “Good, like the colorized version better, the beginning is funny, it mentions Christmas, and my favorite character is Rosalinda.
November 10 2018:
Team TLC movie night: Thomas’ choice: “It Happened on Fifth Avenue” – This has become a November/December tradition for us. We’ve been watching it for many Holiday seasons now.
Thomas says, “I liked it a lot. More than usual.”
Lillian says, “Good for Christmas, my favorite character is Trudy, my favorite scene is when they’re all singing around the tree, and I liked the music.”
I say, “A philosophizing hobo who brings the Christmas spirit to anyone he befriends. Heartwarming story. Just love watching it.”
November 23 2017:
Team TLC special movie night: “It’s A Wonderful Life” – A tradition for us on this day of giving thanks.
Lillian says, “Good, awesome as always, 100% recommended, very Christmasy, a good moral, and an amazing winter movie.”
I say, “That George Bailey was truly a rich man. A wonderful and heart warming reminder of how much one person can affect the lives of others. Even if they don’t know it or understand how.”
Thomas says, “I liked it, like the music, I like watching it every year, and I like the story. Hee Haw!”
December 9 2017:
Team TLC movie night: Thomas’ choice – “White Christmas”
Thomas says, “I like it and like watching it every year.”
Lillian says, “Good, musical, favorite part is the end, like the songs, 100% recommend, very Christmasy, and very festive.”
I say, “Incredibly heartwarming. And, why do heartwarming movies sometimes bring forth inspiration and sometimes bring forth sadness and loneliness?” Hmmmm …… I’m sure I know why. These are simply thoughts to share.
