Caffienated Randomness - The Christmas Movie Edition



This week our Caffeinated Chieftain is inquiring about our favourite Christmas movies. I have a few and they all have to do with Dicken's Christmas Carol.

The first is the classic version "Christmas Carol" with Alistair Sims. For those who are not aware, this is not the first version of the movie, however, it is the most popular. In the 90s someone thought it would be great to colourize black and white movies and this movie was one of the first. It is my opinion that the only way to watch it is in the original Black and White. There is something lost when you watch the "touched up version." By the way, this is my husband's favourite Christmas movie.

And who doesn't like the Muppets. I loved watching the Muppet Show growing up (some may say I haven't grown up). The Muppet's Christmas Carol with Michael Caine playing Scrooge is hilarious. It is a show that you can watch with your children (even though mine refuse to) and not be afraid of what their watching. My favourite lines have to be:
Gonzo: I am here to tell the story.
Rizzo: I am here to eat the food.

Finally, Scrooged with Bill Murray. I laugh and cry every time I watch this version. I love Bobcat Goldwaith's character, the voice of reason that goes postal. I finally bought this movie and can't wait to curl up and watch it with my hubby.



Now go and record your favourite Christmas movies at Under Grace Over Coffee.

I love A Christmas Carol - although my fave version is Mickey's Christmas Carol. What were you saying about not growing up? ;)

We just watched "The Muppets Christmas Carol" several weeks ago. It is a cute version of the classic.

Hope you have a great weekend!
