Saturday Afternoon at the Movies

This idea came from a Facebook meme:
Over 10 days, post your 10 all time favorite films. What movie has really made an impact on you or what films can you watch over and over and never tire of? Post either the movie poster, DVD cover or even a screenshot on your timeline. No need to explain.

Only I had a hard time picking out just 10 movies so my favorites over the next few hundred Saturdays 😸 in semi-alphabetical order:me favorite films.

  3. This is a good list, though I don't know the 4th man. Glad you picked the original Grinch. I am not so much of a die hard fan of the new Jim Carrey one but the original show is a favorite. I watched ELF with one of my classes yesterday and had to finish it last night. A definite favorite. Happy Saturday. Hugs-Erika

    1. Jim Carrey is too over the top for me. I’m not a big Will Farrell fan either as he’s in the too over the top category, too, but Elf is a very cute movie

  4. Good Christmas movie choices
    I never liked Elf so guess I am a Grinch lol, not familiar with the 4th wise man or the bishop's wife but I have watched the rest-but my all time favorite is White Christmas for an old Christmas movie.
    Happy Saturday

    1. White Christmas is Himself’s favorite, not mine. He usually watches it alone. I’m not a huge fan of musicals

  7. You picked some great Christmas movies, and ones we often think of when we think of Christmas. I have seen several of these, but not the Grinch, The 4th Wise Man, Mr. Magoo, or the Muppets.

    Your official Die Hard trailer is different from my trailer. Mine makes it even SEEM like Christmas. Glad to see it was one of your picks. You KNOW/READ how I feel about it.
