Now that the weather has changed out here in Seattle, I'm already lining up my Halloween and Christmas movies.
I don't watch movies during the summer months because it stays light until after nine at this latitude and for some reason I feel like it has to be dark to watch a movie. And since I'm usually in bed by nine these days, that doesn't leave me any movie watching time until the dark days of winter beset us.
I have to confess that the Christmas movie I'm most looking forward to this year is a guilty pleasure I stumbled across in the Spanish language section at the local library years ago. I've watched it every year ever since, and finally broke down and bought my own copy so I wouldn't have to worry about getting it from the library each year.
It is definitely a cheese fest and probably not to anyone's taste in this group, but for some reason I just love it.
It's on a DVD under the title:
I think it was originally released as something like "Manolito Ser Jefe."
I wouldn't encourage any of you to go out and buy it unless you have a high risk tolerance. Here's a sample review from the amazon.com web site:
Heh, heh, heh. See what I mean?
I know! There's no accounting for taste; right?
So, that's the movie I'm most looking forward to watching this season.
How about you?

"Saving Mr. Banks." The saga of the truth behind how Mary Poppins made it to Disney, and then into the classic film, is supposed to be true-to-source. (We'll see.) I've always considered Mary Poppins to be a rather appropriate movie for the holiday-season (it must be "Chim Chiminey" and seeing all those silhouetted fireplaces, and hearing "Feed The Birds"!); and Disney must've agreed with me; as they're finally releasing Poppins on blu-ray here in a few days to celebrate its 50th Anniversary, with I hear ... tickets to the new film ... attached to the cardboard-sleeves! So if one buys Mary on blu, they'll get to see the TRUTH behind how it got made ... for FREE! And anything for FREE at Christmas is always a plus! But I hear it's not quite a film for kids, perhaps because of its rather odd-rating for a Disney-branded title that's yielding-of-story lent itself to a G-rated classic; PG-13.
