Writer's Block: What Kind of Wonderful?

A lot of people love the film It's a Wonderful Life. Some people find it to be not so wonderful. Do you have a favorite holiday-themed movie? And if so, what is it?

"A Christmas Story". My favorite Christmas movie, ever. Of course, it takes place in northern Indiana and reminds me a lot of my childhood, so I can't say how much nostaliga is involved in that.

Favourite film ever.

Funny, dark, and touching. It's A Wonderful Life is a film with morals, about the importance of family, and about doing the right thing no matter what.

And alright, I blub when I watch it.

Wanna make something of it?

Nope, I'd never make fun of someone who blubbers at movies; I'm a sentimental old fool. I cried at the end of "Backdraft", couldn't get out of my chair while the credits rolled on "Saving Private Ryan", and even got a little emotional when the new Enterprise appeared near the finish of "Star Trek IV". So, you can imagine how I get during "It's a Wonderful Life".

There's being a sap, and then there's you.

I get Saving Private Ryan but Star Trek really?

Sure. The Enterprise had been destroyed at the end of the last movie, and near the end of Star Trek IV the crew have been cleared of charges against them and reassigned to another ship. They're speculating that it'll be some kind of freighter, then their shuttle passes over another ship, the music swells -- and there's a brand new Constitution Class starship, freshly assigned to be the next Enterprise. For a hardcore Trekkie like me it was like going home again.
