Normal Guy Becomes Santa
»
This is a great documentary about a guy who goes to Santa school and becomes one of the many Santas in the US around Christmastime. My family always wants to watch Christmas movies around the holidays, and a lot of them are terrible. I bring this one for some relief.
Decent Christmas Movie
»
I grew up with the cartoon, and prefer it, but I thought Carrey did a decent job portraying such an iconic animated creature. I'm not big on Christmas movies, but I do think this one is at least entertaining.
Interesting True Story
»
In 1958 there were laws against interracial marriage. It's hard for me to believe, but impossible not to when watching this true story of a couple who fought those laws and succeeded. A well done historical documentary.
Amazing Acting
»
The performances in this movie by Micheal Douglas, Matt Damon, and Rob Lowe (and everyone else, but those were the stand-outs) was very, very good. I liked it so much I watched it twice.
Bizarre True Crime
»
A film well done by Sofia Coppola, based on the article and later, the book written by Nancy Jo Sales about the Bling Ring, a group of teens who easily broke into celebrity homes and stole a ridiculous amount of stuff. Features include Paris Hilton's real home which was actually burgled by the group, Emma Watson's incredible portrayal of the leader of the group, and overall a well told story of a crazy thing that really happened.
