It's a Wonderful Life--Is it? Do you remember seeing it for the first time?
I may be stoned for saying this...but, like the original reviewers, I despise this movie...as far as I'm concerned, enduring the lame-o dialogue is like listening to fingernails scritching on a chalkboard. Please...give me Ralphie and his quest for a BB gun. Or even the Walton kids.
Miracle on 34th Street--old version or new?
I'm steeling myself for a few more rocks...but I dislike this film as well. But if I had to sit through one version or the other, I'd have to go with the original version.
Do you have a favorite incarnation of Mr. Scrooge?
Alastair Sim, hands down...although George C. Scott made a pretty good Scrooge as well. I'd love to see John Thaw, of Inspector Morse fame, take a turn as Ebenezer.
Why should it be a problem for an elf to be a dentist? I've been watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer for years now, and I still don't get it.
Speaking as someone with a permanent retainer that causes much grief for my own dental professionals, I'd think that an elf's tiny fingers would have the necessary size and dexterity to do a really good job with a variety of oral health procedures.
Who's the scariest character in Christmas specials/movies?
The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, Muppet Version
That Mean Magician Who Tries to Melt Frosty
Lucy and Violet "advising" Charlie Brown while he's trying to direct the Christmas play in A Charlie Brown Christmas. If I were Charlie Brown, I'd join poor George over on the bridge, contemplating the one-way polar bear dive. (And when the Lucys and Violets of the world grow up they get even scarier.)
