Review:

Out of all the Christmas movies in the world, this is my favorite. When I was little, back in the days of VHS tapes, I wore two copies out. Two. That’s how many times I watched it. You can take your Christmas Vacation and your Home Alone, both great movies to be fair, but the Christmas movie I look forward to watching every year is It’s a Wonderful Life.

It’s got the nice supernatural element I love in Christmas movies, there’s the amazing acting of Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, and a bald villain in a wheelchair. There’s so much hope and love and an intense feeling that they can overcome everything. It’s beautiful.

It’s a Wonderful Life is everything I love about the holiday season.

5/5

Merry Christmas!
