A Christmas Story

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on December 16, 2019 by getbent57

Time is running short I have yet to watch my all time favourite movie, A Christmas Story.  Most years watch it two to three times.  Not much in the Christmas mood this year.  That being said my be once I watch this again it might do the trick.  There are people I know who have ever seen this.  I tell them it’s a must watch classic.  They seem to think the whole movie is about a BB gun.  Tell them that only a small plot point.  Then tell them that this is the most realistic family to ever be in a movie or TV.

It is all most time again to start watching my all time favourite movie, A Christmas Story.  Watch this multiple time each year.  It never gets old and makes me laugh very time.  On November 18, 2018 the movie turned 35 years old.  I own the movie on DVD and Blu-ray.  Much prefer the DVD version because it leaves in some of the mistakes.  It makes it feel more real.  So as soon as December starts I will be watching for the 1000th time.

A Christmas Story Live Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , on December 19, 2017 by getbent57

The past Sunday (December 17, 2017) A Christmas Story Live aired.  Like I said in my past post about this.  Not sure how this will work.  The movie is my all time favourite.  So I hope this doesn’t do the movie a disserves.

Well I watched it.  Going to say it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.  It had all the key elements from the movie.  With a song and danced numbers worked in.  There was some newer jokes worked in but they fell flat. It was well put together.  They did do an amazing job pulling a three hour show off live for TV.  With only a very small hiccups.  However over all it was kind of boring.

Don’t forget that A Christmas Story Live special airs tonight, December 17, 2017.  Still not sure how I feel about his yet.  The movie is my all time favourite.  Then again this might be fine.  Will find out.  Plan to watch.  Just not sure yet what time it airs.  Just hope its not too late in my time zone.

[Update] It airs 8pm in my time zone.  While looking a the info the the box it says its three hours long.  My guess there will be may be an hour and half of show.  The rest will be lots of commercials.  As the cast move to different sets and change costumes.

christmas-story.jpgWe are now into December (2016).  So it is time once again to watch the best movie ever, A Christmas Story.  All ways watch this a few times in December.  No matter how many times I have seen it.  It still makes me laugh and puts a smile on my face.  Think this is because it feels a like a real family and they act like one too.  Work with people who ever seen this awesome movie. Then there are other who just don’t get what so special about it.  Well, they are missing out.

FunkoPop.jpgHave added one more Funko Pop vinyl to my collection.  Which is A Christmas Story: Sheriff Raphie.  Own two others all ready, Rick Grimes and Leonardo.  Plus a mini a Batman keychain.  A Christmas Story is my all time favourite movie.  Have seen this Pop Vinyl (as well as the other two in this line > here) online for sale a few places places.  They were going for a good price but it was the shipping that made me not buy it.  Because the shipping was the same price or more of just the one vinyl.  There is  a new local story called Atomic Records & Collectibles.  They have all kinds of Pop Vinyl’s as well as a lot of cool stuff.  When I seen Raphie there, picked it up right away.  When I was buying the guy said it had the other two are on ordered.  So I guess I will have to check back and buy them.  He all so said that tjey are bring in the famous leg lamp from the movie as well.  If its a good price.  Just might buy that as well.  Am sure I will be buying a lot more from there over the coming months.

A Christmas Story

christmas-story.jpgTime again to watch the best movie/Christmas movie, A Christmas Story.  Not sure how many times I have seen this movie but its a lot.  To say this is a classic is a bit of an understatement.  While the movie is charming and funny.   What makes this standout out is that is feels real.  The story takes place in the 40’s but every one can relate at lest to one element.  If you have never seen this movie you need too.  It plays a lot on TV but you can find the DVD or Blu-ray pretty cheap all over the place.  I try to watch this at lest three times before Christmas.
