Awesome weekend movies

December 17th, 2009

Only one week left! So this weekend tips will be, yes you guessed it, Christmas movies! :D

nightmare_before_christmasFirst we have a classic that doesn’t really need any introduction. The Nightmare Before Christmas will always be one of the best Christmas movies, and that’s that! Jack Skellington, the king of Halloween Town stumbles upon Christmas Town. He falls for the idea of Christmas and tries to bring Christmas to Halloween Town. If you haven’t seen it, see it! If you have seen it, see it again!

Another Christmas movie that’s heartwarming is The Holiday.  Two women with guy-problems swap homes over the holiday. The cast includes Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Jack Black. Adorable and warming story, perfect for a cold winters day.

And now for two Swedish movies that I love, I’m not sure if they have been released internationally but they’re worth looking for. First we have the classic Sällskapsresan 2 – Snowroller (Charter Trip 2 ). It doesn’t get more Swedish than this. Stig-Helmer and his friend Ole returns and this time for a skiing vacation in the Alps. It makes fun of everything with charter trips and the poor unlucky Stig-Helmer.

The number one comedy for Christmas is Tomten är far till alla barnen, I think it may be called ” In Bed with Santa” in English. It shows a modern (read complicated) famliy with exes, new wifes and girlfriends, all brought together for Christmas and the drama just gets worse the further into the night it gets. Sara, the host for this evening, reveals that she is pregnant, but what she doesn’t know is that her current husband is sterilized… Some of Swedens best actors in an hilarious movie that will surely brighten up your day.

That’s it for today, have a schmear Christmas everybody!tomten_ar_far_till_alla_barnenthe holidaysällskapsresan 2
