My Personal Christmas Movie Challenge

Since I am such a Movie Maniac, I thought I'd challenge myself to a movie challenge. I love Christmas movies, and I've seen so many. A challenge for me is finding new ones to watch. I often fall back on the staples such as "Miracle on 34th Street" and "It's A Wonderful Life". Each year I manage to find a few new movies that I had not seen before. They could be new for that year, or Classic Movies that I didn't know where Christmas related.

This year I am going to challenge myself to watch 10 new Christmas related movies. New meaning I'd never seen them before, not new for 2010.

Some movies that I am considering include:
La Buche (1999)
A Christmas Carol (2009)
A Christmas Without Snow (1980)
In The Good Old Summertime (1949)

There are some movies that I really want to see, but are only on VHS, so I am hoping to catch them on TV. I generally watch around 25 Christmas movies a year, many of them old standards. I have just about exhausted the Classic Movies with Christmas themes, and I am trying to find more religious Christmas movies, but there are not too many. I will most likely be stuck with the dreaded Hallmark Christmas movies.

I am hoping to review them as I go, movie by movie. I am starting on November 15th and will go until December 26th. Hopefully I won't be too sick of them by then.

If you haven't seen Bing Crosby's White Christmas, you MUST add this to your movie list!

I recommend getting your hands on "Christmas in Connecticut" a pretty funny film from the 1940s that isn't super-Christmasy but very enjoyable.
