Yesterday, when we'd finished clearing up after Christmas dinner (we had lamb this year, which was quite a change, but very tasty), we sat down to watch Pixar's Up.


 
In case you've not seen it, I won't post any spoilers, except to say that, as with all Pixar movies, I found it thoroughly enjoyable, while at the same time not being at all like the type of movie I'd expected.  An extra treat was the teaser trailer for next summer's Toy Story 3.

Of course, this being the Christmas season, there are other movies on my 'must see' list this week.
 
 
 
In 1999, The Shop Around the Corner was remade (and updated) as You've Got Mail, with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan in the lead roles, but that version can't hold a candle to the charm of the original 1940 version.
 

 
One of my all time favorite movies, The Miracle on 34th Street has been remade several times since it first hit the big screen back in 1947.  Although I like the 1994 effort, with Richard Attenborough playing the role of Kris Kringle, if I had to choose, I'd pick Edmund Gwenn's portryal of old Santa every time.

How about you?

Which movies are on your 'must see' list over the holiday season?

I don't think I know that one.

The Ref stars Denis Leary, Judy Davis, and Kevin Spacey; very funny. and well worth a rental. It's rather more acerbic than most holiday fair- but heck, if the Pogues' brilliant "Fairytale of New York" can count as a holiday song...

(And I've never heard of Terry's Chocolate Orange (until now), so you're safe there ;)
