I'm watching Ken Burns new war doc The Vietnam Wars that starts this Sunday. His Civil War documentary single-handedly made me interested in a war I had never really cared about, to the point that I bought books so I could learn more about it.

Excellent choice! :p

I love all of his movies. The National Parks: America's Best Idea is my personal fave tho.

Before the Devil Knows Your Dead is on Netflix. Excellent and totally not for the faint of heart thriller directed by Sidney Lumet featuring the late great Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ethan Hawke and Albert Finney.

I know I'm in the minority, but I just couldn't get into that movie.

We are going to watch The Babysitter on Netflix, which was released yesterday.
I very much enjoyed it! Such a creepy, disturbing vibe and I loved how the gross out moments were usually quick and jarring.

I actually didn't realize there was an American version until just now. I wonder how it compares.

So I named the Daily Thread today after one of my favorite holiday (ok not really but it is set during the holidays) movies Trading Places. What are some of yours?

I also love Elf, Love Actually, Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story.

 

It's Gamera!

LoveActually.

But always always always love actually.

The George C. Scott version of "A Christmas Carol" is a favorite.
