  1. We totally watched Nightmare Before Christmas this week on Netflix. It reminded me somehow that I threw up in a movie theatre when I was 7 (not at Nightmare) and laughs were had all around.

    Last Holiday is one of my favorite holiday movies. I wish they made more movies like it that are just all around feel good :)

    I actually need to renew my Netflix account. You’re able to watch unlimited movies for only $8 per month. I can’t beat that! I guess since we had the cable installed with Cinemax and DVR, we don’t pay that much attention to Netflix anymore.

    I love the movie Last Holiday. Queen Latifah and LL played great parts!

    I’ve never seen the other two movies but they look good too! Especially the Nightmare Before Christmas :D The font and the swirl used on the cover reminded me of Alice in Wonderland for some odd reason. Did you get this image too? Maybe it’s just me, lol. I’ll definitely check it out before Christmas gets here!

    HEY! I just watched Last Holiday too! That’s random. :) I really enjoyed it, surprisingly. For some reason, I had it in my head that it’d end up silly. Plus, my dad had watched it and already spoiled the ending for me, though I guess you kind of suspect all along that something crazy is going to happen like a misdiagnosis.

    I also love Nightmare Before Christmas. I’d give it 5/5. The tunes are so catchy that I even downloaded them for my iPod.

    As a film snob, it’s difficult to use Netflix Instant for an extended period. There aren’t that many great films on there and when you get through those you end up looking at other services like Amazon Instant (good stuff) and Hulu (garbage).
