Movies I Watched In December 2016

Titles with nothing before them I watched for the first time.

Titles with ** before them are re-watches.

Titles with # before them I watched with my little siblings.

** White Christmas ~ 1954

 Christmas Classic!  I told Mel (she doesn't usually watch this kind of movie) that she had to sit down and watch this with me the Saturday after our first big snow.

Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker

I've never seen this done live, I found this performance on YouTube.  It is amazing!

 Full House Take 2 ~ 2012 ~ 1 ep

Finally finished this drama!!  Oh it was wonderful, the ending!

Seven First Kisses ~ 2016 ~ 3 eps

Over in Korea (more countries than Korea might do it, but Korea is the only one I know about) big name brands will make web dramas with popular actors to advertise their brand.  This one is done by big department store, and the premise is that the heroine works at the department store, does something kind to a customer who is (unbeknownst to her) a fairy and the fairy gives her a gift of, well practically reliving her first kiss seven times.  They got the biggest, most popular, hottest Korean actors.  Like this drama is every fan girl's dream!!  We are talking boys like Lee Min HO, Ji Chang Wook, Lee Joon-gi, Lee Joong Suk, like SERIOUSLY!!  It is cheesy and crazy, but hilarious!
Christmas In the Smokies ~ 2015

Okay, this was your typical Hallmark-ish Christmas movie, cheesy, corny and full of clich├ęs, but it was amusing.  Mason's dancing?  It was AWFUL!!  He really did dance like a chicken, or a one legged goat!  It was amusing.  Oh, oh!!  Her dad?  He was Sheriff Walter Moncrief from Crossfire Trail!!  That might not mean anything to a lot of you, but it is something special to me.

Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope ~ 1977

Yes, yes, I finally watched it!  Both of the parents and Melody had seen and loved the movies ages ago, but I had never seen them.  That was another reason I didn't try to find a way to see The Force Awakens and Rogue One in theatre (Mum and Mel went to see both, I stayed home with the kids).  See I wanted to see the movies in release order.  But we borrowed it from a friend, and watched it as the family Christmas Eve movie.  Everyone loved it!  It was so much fun!  Han was (as I knew he would be) my favorite, C3P0 was a nut! and Obi Won was the best!!  The saddest part, was Carrie Fisher's death 3 days later.

Penelope ~ 2006

I had heard about this movie, and was looking forward to watching it, so when I saw it on Netflix I was like, "Whooo!"  It was very inspiring.  Especially the quote at the end.

That made me think.  "It's not the power of the curse, it's the power you give the curse."

Angels in the Snow

The family New Year's Eve movie.  It was...well...interesting.

Well folks, that's what I watched last month.  this year I will still be keeping a list of what I read and watch, but I don't know if I will post a monthly list.


  1. Yay!!!! You watched STAR WARS IV!!!! That really is the best way to watch them!!

  2. Aww so many fun shows/movies! I so love watching the Nutcracker ballet!

    Full House Take 2 was really funny. I enjoyed that one a lot!

    Seven First Kisses had every leading actor that a girl could want!! Very silly but cute.

    Looooove Penelope. And so awesome that you finally saw Star Wars IV. I'm still a huuuuge SW fan. The originals will always be the best. :D
