Friday Night Christmas Movie Recommendation | Love Actually

Friday Night Christmas Movie Recommendation | Love Actually

 

Christmas is exactly one week away! How did this happen? I can’t believe it. This week has been a doozy for me. Sorry for the lack of posts but there will be delicious food recipes and more DIYs next week to make up for it so keep your eyes peeled. Tonight at 5:30 can’t come soon enough; it’s been one of those weeks. And although I’ll be at my hubby’s work Christmas party, I really wish I could snuggle up on the couch with some wine, some of the recipe I’ll be posting next week (it’s cheesecake, shh!), and this movie. It always makes me so happy inside and so full of Christmas spirit.

Friday Night Movie Recommendation | One Magic Christmas

Friday Night Movie Recommendation | One Magic Christmas

This week we put horror movies aside (travesty, I know!) for a good ole traditional Christmas movie. I’ve picked one that isn’t too popular so hopefully you haven’t seen it already. This is my mom’s all-time favourite Christmas movie so it quickly became a staple at our household. It might be a little emotionally manipulative (listen to some thoughts on manipulation in movies here) but you’ve been forewarned. And it’s a Christmas movie, so what do you expect?

Friday Night Movie Recommendation | Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

Friday Night Movie Recommendation | Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

It’s the first Friday of December and that means that it’s FINALLY Christmas movie recommendation time! I can’t hold out on this one so I’m actually going to recommend my favourite (or at least one of my top three favourites) movie for you guys today. There’s a couple reasons for this. Firstly, it’s awesome. Secondly, some of you may have heard about a movie coming out today called Krampus. Well, remember how annoyed I was that Hunger Games ripped off the incredible Battle Royale? It’s the same thing here. The storyline is classic European folklore but I don’t want to hear everyone going on and on about how unique and interesting it is when the movie was already made in 2010 (Rare Exports) – and it’s amazing. Ugh. America, ripping off all the great foreign films. Anyways, I digress, I suppose it’s about time to get to the review.

Friday Night Movie Recommendation | The Green Inferno

Friday Night Movie Recommendation | The Green Inferno

So, there’s a little story behind this one. It originally was released at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) in 2013. I just so happened to be working there in the Hospitality Suite. Basically, the stars/directors/writers would come into the hospitality suite before and after interviews and we would charge their phones, get them drinks or food, there were couches for them to sit and relax, magazines, we gave away free stuff like cell phone cases and whatnot. On a side note, don’t you think it’s funny that it’s the richest people that get all the free stuff? Anyways, there were people coming and going and then who other than Eli Roth walks in the door. We chatted for a bit, I gave him some snacks and he’s actually a really cool down-to-earth guy. He was there for this movie, which I then needed to watch after meeting him but for some incredibly frustrating reason, after TIFF it was shelved for two years! Ugh. So the build up for this one was pretty high. It delivered.

Friday Night Movie Recommendation | The Gift

Friday again! It came so quickly this week, which is awesome! I have nothing planned this weekend but painting. I am painting just about every piece of furniture in my house. Not really, but at least four or five pieces so keep posted for the results of at least one of those pieces on Monday. Now, the reason you’re here: to get another wicked-fantastic movie recommendation. Well, remember how I told you guys that I was on a great streak? The streak lives on! This one is a real winner. Watch it tonight. And eat pizza. And drink beer. And have some chocolate.

Friday Night Movie Recommendation | The Final Girls

Friday Night Movie Recommendation | The Final Girls

I have been on such a good movie streak. I honestly can’t believe it.  It’s been about six or seven great movies in a row. Not even just good movies, but great ones. If anyone out there is as much of a horror junkie as I am, you’ll recognize how rare this is. It’s like a special gift from the movie gods because of all the trash I’ve sifted through. That must be it. I’ve paid my dues and I’m finally collecting. Whatever it is, you guys are in for some really great recommendations. It started with Goodnight Mommy Last week and it continues with The Final Girls this week. These movies couldn’t be more different from each other but they are both fantastic films.

Friday Night Movie Recommendation | Goodnight Mommy

Friday Night Movie Recommendation | Goodnight Mommy

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you’re in the mood for an incredible movie tonight because I have one heck of a recommendation for you.  Now that Halloween month is over (woe is me) we can get back to other genres of movies other than horror. Just kidding! You guessed it, I have another horror recommendation for you guys this week. This one is more of a dramatic horror and a thriller so I wouldn’t classify it as a Halloween horror film. Regardless of it’s classification though, this movie is incredible. I realize that that is a strong word. This movie deserves it.

Friday Night Halloween Movie Recommendation | Trick ‘r Treat

Friday Night Halloween Movie Recommendation | Trick ‘r Treat

Halloween is upon us! Tomorrow is the big day and I’ve saved the best recommendation for last. I watch horror movies all year long so for a movie to really resonate with me at this time of the year, it has to not only have all the components of a good horror movie, but it has to specifically be about Halloween or refer to Halloween. This one has all of that in spades. That being said, even if it weren’t a Halloween movie I would still really appreciate the style and the fun atmosphere that this horror movie brings to the table.

Friday Night Halloween Movie Recommendation | The Evil Dead

Halloween is a week and a day away! Yahoo! I’m pumped. I have some Halloween decor ideas going up on Monday, so stay tuned for that, and there are two more Halloween movie recommendations coming down the pipeline (including this one). I hate how quickly special occasions come and go. It seems like I’m always just in the middle of prepping and celebrating and then it’s over. Womp womp. Oh well, if there’s only a week and a day left then we’ll make it count!

Friday Night Halloween Movie Recommendation | The Witches

Friday Night Halloween Movie Recommendation | The Witches

How great is it that Halloween is on a Saturday this year? Pretty darn great in my opinion. I’m planning on throwing a Halloween party and dressing up as Winifred Sanderson alongside my blonde and brunette girlfriends so that we will be the Sanderson Sisters. The problem is, all the people I’ve told this to have said, “Who are the Sanderson Sisters?” Ugh. What are your thoughts? Would you get it? Either way, we’re going for it so at the very least we’ll look like well coordinated witches. Speaking of witches… Today’s recommendation was the terror of my childhood and maybe one of the reasons I love horror movies so much to this day. I watched it again last night to refresh my memory and I have to say that it’s still pretty creepy and loads of fun to watch.
