Christmas is associated with all kinds of things: carols, cookies, presents, and of course, movies. Movies that, sometimes, I cannot stand.
Don’t get me wrong, Christmas is my favorite holiday. But sometimes the movies are too much. Too much “And they lived happily ever after”. And they all seem to tweak the same storyline. Family, falling in love, the whole nine yards.
Sometimes – for the most part actually – they make me feel good inside. All things warm and fuzzy. But if I’m not careful, there usually comes a point where I can’t watch another one or I will go crazy. I get sick of them. Because the storylines are too perfect – life isn’t a series of seemly random coincidences that have a happy ending. It’s not realistic at all.
Don’t even get me started on the acting. I’m no expert, but even I can tell when acting is horrible. And honestly, that just adds to the cheese factor of the movies. It would be nice if they had famous actors in them too. Not that no one who is famous has ever done a Christmas movie, but for the most part, none of the actors in them are people I’ve heard of. Maybe they’d be easier to deal with if they had actors I cared about in them. It would certainly give the movies more legitimacy.
Does anybody else feel this way, or is it just me?
