Christmas Movies #2 and #3

Christmas Movie #2
A Madea Christmas 2013 -  Madea dispenses her unique form of holiday spirit on rural town when she's coaxed into helping a friend pay her daughter a surprise visit in the country for Christmas.
This was a typical Tyler Perry Madea movie.  Funny in parts, touching in others.  There are better Madea movies though, but this was an OK Christmas one.

Christmas Movie #3

Beyond Tomorrow (aka: Beyond Christmas.  aka: And So Goodbye) 1940 - The ghosts of three elderly industrialists killed in an airplane crash return to earth to help reunite a young couple whom they initially brought together.

I watched this one many years ago (on VHS).  Very touching then and very touching now.  I don't usually re-watch movies, but the Christmas ones I tend to.

I also love watching Christmas movies that are not directly about Christmas but are always played at Christmas time because they are important staples of the season.  It is a little remembered film, which I think is sad.

And this particular movie  has been digitally remastered and preserved by the National Film Museum, Incorporated.
