As a Christmastime gift to movie bloggers everywhere, Richard of The Humpo Show began this end-of-year tag, full of questions to answer and then pass along to other bloggers. Since I was so kindly tagged by Drew of Drew’s Movie Reviews, it’s my turn to offer up my yuletide two-cents, which will take the place of my daily review today.

All I Want For Christmas is You | Which DVD/Blu-Ray would you like to receive this year?

Probably Captain America: Civil War, but anything on my top movie list is prime gift fodder.

Jingle Bell Rock | Favorite soundtrack or song from a Christmas film?

Since my favorite Christmas song is “Carol of the Bells,” I have to go with Home Alone. I love how John Williams incorporated it into the score as Kevin sets all his burglar traps.

Let it Snow | 3 of your favorite Christmas films…

I’ll have to go with It’s a Wonderful Life, Home Alone, and A Christmas Story, though The Family Man comes close too.

Donald Trump | A film that divides opinion…

I would have gone with the Star Wars prequels, but I’m picking a film I just saw that left critics, audiences, and even my own sentiments polarized: Cloud Atlas. It’s strange, complicated, sometimes jarringly edited, and stuffed to the brim, but it’s also huge, moving, gorgeously scored, and thematically beautiful.

Brexit | Favorite British Film…

I’m not sure if the 2012 version of Les Miserables counts since it was “British-American” according to Wikipedia, so for pure British, I’ll pick 1968’s Oliver! Both musicals, hmm….

Fidel Castro | A film that divides opinion… A film considered culturally significant

Sure, I could go with an artistic classic, like Citizen Kane or Gone with the Wind, but I’m opting for Jurassic Park, since it was not only a great blockbuster but the stepping stone between puppetry and CGI effects. Didn’t Swiss Army Man prove Jurassic Park’s significance this past year?

Starbucks | Favorite Film Franchise…

Easy, Lord of the Rings, without a doubt.

McDonald’s Happy Meal | Favorite Childhood Film…

One of the first films I remember seeing in the theater was Disney’s Tarzan, and I also recall watching it on VHS with my cousin, especially replaying the “Trashing the Camp” part over and over and over. Ah, memories….

‘Cheeky Nandos’ | Favorite Comedy

Groundhog Day. Talk about watching something over and over and over.

One film you want all of your followers to watch…

The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but if 9 hours of epic fantasy is too much for some people, then Mr. Holland’s Opus. Makes me choke up every time.
