"Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to. Don't you see? It's not just Kris that's on trial, it's everything he stands for. It's kindness and joy and love and all the other intangibles."

Nothing says Christmas quite like the classics can. In a contemporary cinematic age governed by a desire for cash over quality, few - if any - modern Christmas flicks are destined to b... read more

I have been meaning to see Miracle on 34th Street for a long time but the list of films to see was and still is endless but when I noticed that it was on TV, I decided to watch it especially when it was only a couple of days until Christmas. I realised that I needed to see the original film first seeing as that obviously earned better responses and reviews than the remake did. Plus, I have had fri... read more

“Little nonsense in this classical christmas tale, with early NY street feeling, good casting of Ohara and Payne in a non exotic location and irresistible Gwenn. A capraesque feeling all the way” read more

50 Most Depressing Happy Endings (51 movies items)

"The Happy Ending: Kris Kringle (Edmund Gwenn) manages to restore Susan’s (Natalie Wood) belief in Christmas by giving her family a dream home. The Depressing Implications: Father Christmas doesn’t actually exist, so Susan’s in for a whole lot of pain when she grows up. The deceit. Just think of the deceit."

"The groundbreaking trial that proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt that, yes Virginia, there really is a Santa Claus. Thus ensuring, that as someone who more often than not, tends to end up on the naughty list, my stockpile supply of coal lumps will never run low. Of all the courtroom dramas that have been made so far, Miracle On 34th Street stands alone as the one movie that is successfully able to merge the trial genre with that of the Christmas genre. Which makes it not just a landmark piec"
