A Christmas Story

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.

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.
