My Favorite Christmas Movies
Love Actually (2003)
Quite possibly my favorite movie quote of all time comes from this movie. And it's quite fitting for the current times.
Prime Minister: Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around.
The Christmas Toy (1986)
The top toy in the playroom gets jealous when a new toy (from space!) comes onto the scene! Also, all the toys FREEZE if a human sees them. Yeah, this plot line doesn't show up ANYwhere else!
Santa Claus: The Movie (1985)
If you don't know this Christmas movie, you're not a true child of the '80s.
