Have known for some time now they were make another sequel to A Christmas Story,  Which happens to be my all time favourite movie.  Back in January (2022) we learned what it will called A Christmas Story Christmas.   Have some good news to share. They put out a teaser video, which you can see > here below.  At the end they give a date, November 17, 20022.   The sad part is it will only be on HBO Max.  Going to keep an eye out to see if it will be on Blu-ray.

A Christmas Story Christmas

It might be a bit last or really early depending on how you look at it.  My all time favourite movie, A Christmas Story, is getting a real sequel.  There have been other sequels and spin offs.  Like a Summer Story, A Christmas Story Live and A Christmas Story 2.  What is interesting about his new one called, A Christmas Story Christmas, is that the main actor who played Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) is coming back.  According to IMDB the plot is, “Follows Ralphie, now adult, who returns to the house on Cleveland street to give his kids a magical Christmas like the one he had as a child, reconnecting with childhood friends, and reconciling the passing of his Old Man.”  Will be keeping my eye on this.  It could be really great.

3D_Model_Christmas_Story_Leg_LampHave all ways wanted a prop Leg Lamp from A Christmas Story.  Do have a small tree ornament.  But that is too small.  Many years ago a local shop had some in different sizes but at that time didn’t have the money for one.  Well know that I own a 3D printer why not make one.  Seen this very nice model over at Thingiverse > here.  I know it is well after Christmas now but going to give it a try.  May in different sizes. If they turn out ok.  Will give them a paint once winter is over.  Then the will be ready for next year.

As I am typing this (December 11, 2021)  there are long two weeks left till Christmas.  I haven’t watched any specials or movies that I like yet.  Not really into that this year.  However I must find the time to watch A Christmas Story.  This is my all time favourite movie.  Not sure how many times I have seen it and it never gets old.  Own it on DVD and Blu-ray.  Choose the DVD every time because that one the mistakes are still all there.

Not sure how many times I have blogged about the all time favourite movie, A Christmas Story.  But doing it again.  Last year was a bit late than usual at watching it.  Most years try to see it three to four times.  So my next day off plan to start my Christmas movie/TV favourites watching.  There are a bunch that I like to watch.  If you have stopped by this blog in past Decembers you might know what they are.  But if not will be sharing them in future posts.

A_Christmas_Story_SoundtrackNow that it is December.  It is time for Christmas themed musical throwback Thursday.  My all time favourite movie is A Christmas Story.  Lost track of how many times I have watched this.  Then the end credits roll on the shot of the house with a light snow fall there is a song playing.  It sounds like Wish you a Merry Christmas.  On the official soundtrack they call it Glorious Beautiful Christmas.  You can give it a listen > here or below.

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.
