As it is Christmas Eve today, I thought the best way to celebrate Christmas on the blog would be to do my top 10 Christmas Movies. The one’s I have grew up watching (and loving) and even more recent films will appear too. As over the past few years some very good Christmas films have been released. The best thing about Christmas films is that you are really restricted to watching them in Decemeber. I mean if you really want to you could watch them in July . . . but that’s just not the same at all! So quite a few films in my collection are only watched at this time of year.
What makes a good Christmas movie then? Well I would say it has to be a very Christmasy message usually involving or revolving around family. Most of the better ones also have the Santa factor too!
In New York City, an estranged couple who witness a murder are relocated to small-town Wyoming as part of a witness-protection program.
Set in London in the build up to Christmas following 8 different couples and showing the different types of love that is formed in different situations.
A second poster has been released for “Did You Hear About The Morgans?” starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant.
Anything with Sarah Jessica Parker in makes me smile . So here is the poster for her up and coming film with Hugh Grant, about a couple who witness a crime in NYC and are relocated to a small town my the witness protection programme.
I really do think this is fantastic news. I am such a huge fan of Bridget Jones, I would love it if that means a third book will come out as well. As the books are so good too.
Bridget Jones is back – Renee Zellweger has signed on to appear in a third film about the hapless diary-keeper.
The first film in 2001 grossed $282 million (£188 million) worldwide, while the 2004 sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, raked in $262 million (£175 million).
And bosses at British studio Working Title have decided it is time for Zellweger to return to the role of the beloved Brit to round out the trilogy.
It is thought the new film will concentrate on Jones’ quest to have a baby in her 40s.
Colin Firth and Hugh Grant are expected to return, according to reports.
Yes I am that bored and dont have a new movie to review, so thought I would post some funny movie moments in icon form.

Now I would certainly love to have a Daniel Craig ice lolly !!!
Daniel Craig is now licenced to chill – the James Bond star has been made into an ice lolly.
The actor beat out competition from Jude Law and Hugh Grant to be named the U.K’s coolest guy in a poll of 1,000 women.
And food manufacturer Del Monte celebrated the victory by moulding Craig’s muscular torso into a sweet treat for his female fans.
The limited edition Superfruit Smoothie lolly will be sold in the U.K. during National Ice Cream Week, which began on Monday.
I have been feeling rather on the lovely dovey side for no reason whatsoever, so thought I would pick my top 10 movie love songs. Or songs about love.
10. My Heart Will Go On – Celine Dion (Titanic)
I think while this song gets a lot of criticism and people saying this dislike it. I am sure when it first came out everyone loved it a lot. It totally fits together with the movie and the ending. “Every night in my dreams, I see you, I feel you” I mean that line is just so lovely its unreal. I love it!
9. It Must’ve Been Love- Roxette (Pretty Woman)
Probably quite a strange choice with this being top 10 love songs, when this is about a love ending. “It must’ve been love . . . but its over now . . . “. I am sure loads of people have related to this song, but in terms of the movie it wasnt over for Jules and Richard. It was just a small stepping stone until they got together for real in the end. Which is how most people would love to happen to them in there lives.
8. Unchained Melody – Righteous Brothers (Ghost)
How could this not be in the top 10?!?!? The very famous pottery scene and when everyone was totally in love with Patrick Swayze after Dirty Dancing. Lovely . . . “I’ve hungered for your touch, alone . . . lonely times . . . and time goes by so slowly . . . ” I think its just perfect for this movie it fit together so well. “Are you still mine . . . I need your love . . .” it really is a deep love song. Longing for the person and wanting them more than anything. Which is just awwwwww.
7. When You Say Nothing At All- Ronan Keating (Notting Hill)
“You say it best . . . when you say nothing it all . . .” It would probably look like a very strange love song, “what I hear when you dont say a thing” its relating to all the emotions a person shows towards someone that they are in love with and care about a lot. So to show you love someone you dont have to say anything and in Hugh Grants case in the film that probably would have been the best idea haha. He always seemed to say the wrong thing at the wrong time.
6. Time of My Life- Jennifer Warnes & Bill Medley (Dirty Dancing)
“Now I’ve had the time of my life, never felt like this before, I swear its the truth and I owe it all to you . . .” I think that opening line to this song, describes how baby feels towards Johnny throughout the whole film. He taught her so much in such a short period of the time and they fell for each other so much. So I think this song perfectly fits the movie, and especially the ending. Showing everyone that they had the time of their lives. “This could be love . . .”
