Movie Recommendations

Hi people!


Today, I shall share with you some Christmas movies.

Silent Night
Not Rated
On Christmas Eve 1944, in an isolated cabin in Germany's Ardennes forest, three American soldiers and three German soldiers are forced to confront the realities of war, face to face, person to person.  What they discover is the true meaning of courage and the true spirit of a blessed night.

*Winks to a certain two people* really sweet movie.  *nods*

Christmas Child
Not Rated
As Christmas draws near, Jack finds himself disconnecting from the holidays, his job, and ultimately his wife.  His latest assignment as a journalist takes him to Dallas, but a mysterious photograph draws him to the town of Clearwater, Texas.  It is here he discovers the town's life-sized, intricately carved nativity.  As Jack delves into the mysteries surrounding the nativity and its creator, he uncovers secrets from his past, reunites with the family he never knew, and returns to the love that never left him.

Poor Jack.  He doesn't know the true meaning of Christmas.
But the ending... very good ending. *nod nod*
Plus, it stars Megan Follows, who played Anne in Anne of Green Gables.

The Nativity Story
Rated: PG
It was the cruelest of times.  Under Herod's torturous reign, families struggled to survive and yet, in the midst of utter turmoil, a young woman's faith was put to the test.  Join Mary and Joseph on an incredible journey of hope and discovery.

It's the nativity story.  And it is portrayed excellently.  The actors and actresses, the cinematography... it's very well done.

Ok, like I did in my book recommendations post, I shall share a couple of children's movies as well.

The Polar Express
Rated: G
Get up, get on, and get ready for the ride of your life!  It's Christmas Eve, and you're about to roller-coaster up and down mountains, slip-slide over ice fields, teeter across mile-high bridges and be served hot chocolate by singing waiters more astonishing that any you can imagine.  You're on The Polar Express!

This is about a boy's dream on Christmas Eve.  He finds himself rudely awakened to the fact that Santa Claus isn't real, but this dream changes his mind.  
It's a cute movie, but doesn't have any reference to the real Christmas story.

The Star of Christmas
Not Rated
It's 1880's London, and Cavis Appythart and Millward Phelps are putting the finishing touches on their first Christmas musical - "The Princess and the Plumber."  Filled with spectacle and more electric lights than London has ever seen, Cavis is convinced his impressive show will "teach London to love!"  Unfortunately, a church christmas pageant staged by little Edmund Gilbert is opening the same night, right down the street, and features the "Star of Christmas" - a priceless artifact that hasn't been seen in 80 years!  Just how far will Cavis go to make sure his show opens on top?

It's Veggietales.  How can you get better than that? XD *smirks at a certain person*
I absolutely loved this movie when I was little.  I laughed so hard at the scene in the church when- *clamps hand over mouth so I don't give y'all any spoilers*
I highly recommend this movie.


Well, there ya go!  Have any of y'all seen any of these?
