Yes Mike Sex in the City does show here but I don't watch it!(Not because I don't approve, its just not my thing)

Just dreamin'!!!

I'm not really a designer type of girl (unless you count fake T-shirts and handbags from Turkey (all good)!! More a jeans and t-shirt type of girl I'm afraid but I could have a go if anyone would like to contribute to my 'buy Anne a designer outfit (and shoes) fund'? All donations welcome but no creme eggs thank you as I have to squeeze into said outfit when bought!

Christmas Story is good for silliness as is Christmas Vacation. You need a laugh, no other way to put it.

I'm rather fond of "Love Actually" as an all-around good-hearted Christmas film.

I watch The Ref with my family each year. Dennis Leary is a crook held up in a house for christmas. Anyone seen it and what do they think? By the way, it was filmed in Niagera on the Lake, Ontario, Canada, the so called "prettiest town in Canada."

Sorry jimh, haven't heard of "The Ref"!

Thanks for all your replies ..... what is all this about designer outfits Anne?! Please explain!

I like "Love Actually" too. Nearly forgot about that one! For me, Bill Nighy steals the film, and (dare I say it?) the simulated sex scenes are hilarious!!!

We watched "The Polar Express" over the weekend. It is excellent, with Tom Hanks speaking all the male voices. Happy watching!

Our local IMAX theatre brought back "Polar Express" and, since they only have one screen, it means that they won't open "Harry Potter" in IMAX until January. grrrrr...

I've seen clips and previews from "Polar Express" which left me totally untempted to see it but then I am in the tiny minority that hates CGI animation. The digital armature always jumps out at me which, despite all it's tremendous detail, leaves me incapable of suspending disbelief, cold and analytical - not the best mood for viewing a holiday movie. Traditional animation works much better to produce warm feelings in me.

You all are missing the entire point of Christmas -- it's about the Glorious Birth of Christ. So, it's "Life of Brian" for me every December...

To sighthound, re:cgi -- the problem with the CGI in "Polar Express" is that they tried to make humans look like real humans & that fails miserably. They end up looking icky/weird/bizarre/unnatural. Pixar does it right in using CGI to make the human characters look like *animated* human characters!
