    LOVE your giant pine cones. Two of my favorites are “It’s a Wonderful Life”, (I know – it’s the one everyone thinks of, but it’s still a terrific movie), and “Little Women” – the one with Winona Ryder as Jo, and Susan Sarandon as Marmie. I’ve yet to see the new one that has just been released, with Meryl Streep as Marmie, and Soirse Ronan as Jo.

    Hope you and Paul have a very merry Christmas, Victoria, and I look forward to more of your delightful posts in 2020.

    P.S. My cats, William & Harry, look forward to your posts too!

    Meet Joe Black with Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins. Most beautiful to look at and to listen to–Oh Anthony’s voice is the sexiest thing around, even when he’s 65. And all the feels. ALL. THE. FEELS.

        I ADORE Moonstruck. To pieces. Holy moly, how did I forget that movie?!?

        Speaking of Cher (and what the heck, why not Sam Elliot, bc WHY NOT), Mask. I can’t even think about it without crying tbh. I also like Erin Brockovich a lot, bc strong women.

        Moonstruck is wonderful … it is my All time favourite ‘modern‘ movie.
        It happened one night
        Philadelphia Story
        High Society
        ?The movie where Cher has two kids and keeps shifting towns, And meets Bob Hoskins and her youngest daughter almost drowns and she sings the shop snoop song?
        Mama Mia
        The perfect specimen With Errol Flynn and Joan Blondell
        To catch a Thief Cary Grant and Grace Kelly
        Every single Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers movie esp the Gay Divorcee
        Bachelor mother Ginger Rogers and David Niven
        I’d rather be rich (I think it’s the title) Robert Goulet and Sandra Dee
        Kid Creole
        Crouching tiger Hidden Dragon
        House of Flying Daggers
        Etc etc etc

      Definitely a movie I just love watching over and over along side “Sabrina” with Ford and Ormond; “Practical Magic” with Bullock and Kidman, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, ….more recently “The Age of Adline” with Ford. There are so many good movies I’ve seen and one or two that I’ve intentionally stayed away from…one is “Braveheart” ….lol. Afraid I won’t be able to return to present day and time….lol!

    You are the bravest woman ever to watch Wolf of Wallstreet with family!! Watched with my 23 year old daughter. Not sure who was most embarrassed at opening scenes.

    The Family Fang
    Die Hard (it IS a Christmas movie)
    Moonstruck
    Old family movies, wedding, childbirth of twins (not graphic), family vacations…..

    If we have had a few cocktails, Words with Friends never, ever fails to entertain. Merry, merry!

    Back to the Future (except for when Biff assaults mom) & Goonies are the only ones I can think of and I haven’t seen Ocean’s 8, but I need to because I too love a good heist and this one has a bunch of strong women in it.

    Ok, someone said Moonstruck and I’m so on board! I need to add my new Christmas favorite, though. Daddy’s Home 2 is a Christmas movie and it’s laugh out loud funny! I’ve been telling everyone.
    On the darker side I need to warn people about a Christmas cartoon short called The Small One. It’s a Disney movie produced and directed by Don Bluth (later famous for The Secret of NIHM, An American Tail and The Land Before Time.) I had a strong positive memory of this movie as a child so I bought it on Amazon. There is an absolutely antisemitic song in it! Ruins a sweet story.

    I just watched The Two Popes on Netflix and loved it. It’s relevant to most people and I learned (or was reminded) of what happened in Argentina in the 70s.

    I love Charade with Audrey Hepburn & Cary Grant and music by Henri Mancini. Murder, mystery, coquetry, and set in Paris. What’s not to love? This was their only movie together, BTW.

    If Kiss Me Kate made the list then Seven Brides for Seven Brothers would be a good follow up. Lots of dancing and there’s snow -so Christmas also Howard Keel and a very young Yvonee DiCarlo. Family Stone kills me everytime. Every Time.

        Holly Hunter and Harvey Keitel, OMG in the movie “The Piano” . Watched it with my sister and son….all of us were sitting toward the front edge of the sofa. The acting is superb. Took days for me to put it aside, a serious, intense movie.
