Here's yet another terriffic Christmas movie on Netflix streaming!


It's a BBC movie about a disillusioned teacher who fibs to his class about his ex coming from Hollywood to se their Nativity play and making stars of them all.

It is truly a family movie. We, as a family decided to give it a full 5 stars. You have to stay with this movie. At first it's just cute and before you know it, it comes up and draws you in HARD. It's funny and touching and the music is wonderful. Check it out.

BTW, kudos and thanks to Mac1949 for letting me know about this movie in another thread.

Mac1949, YOU ROCK!

We Just Watched Another Terriffic Christmas Movie on Netflix Streaming.

Check out a wonderful little Finnish movie simply entitled "Christmas Story".

It may not bequite exciting enough for little ones but my wife and I truly enjoyed it'ssimplicity and gentleness. The music was wonderful and the dubbing was done very well rather that the kind of kung fu movie cheesyness that we're used to.

If you're the type of movie viewer who likes a good, gentle, simple and well done little movie check it out. If you're very pumped off because Jean Claude Van Damme has never won an Oscar for Best Actor, you might want to take a pass.

We gave it a wholehearted 5 stars and would have given more if we could. Enjoy!

Holy Mackrel!

Are all of our journal posts lost or are they in the process of being transferred over?

I may have missed this in the new info. I'd hate to lose all of these posts. There are some good ones, some bad ones and some so-so ones, but there are some that I was very proud of.

Any info that I missed? Thanx!
