Miracle on 34th Street

The miracle of Christmas is a timeless affair, and this classic festive film from 1947 remains one of the world’s most beloved films. The actors may not ring any bells with your kids, but the message will ring loud and clear – this time of year is indeed a time when both miracles and magic can occur. Refreshingly devoid of the treacle coating poured on too thick by modern day takes, this gorgeous film is a family must-see at this special time of year.

Director: George Seaton
Starring: Maureen O’Hara, Edmund Gwenn

Featuring a new generation of special effects, this stunning movie, once just a pipedream of Titanic director James Cameron, will take viewers to a world beyond imagination. When wheelchair bound hero, Jake, joins an expedition to the moon, he is finally able to walk again via the use of a Na’vi – a human hybrid that can be injected with an individual’s thoughts and personality. After meeting the beautiful hybrid, Neytiri, can Jake triumph during an epic conflict that will ultimately decide the fate of our world?

Director: James Cameron
Starring: Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez

Sherlock Holmes 

This is Sherlock Holmes, Detective, as you’ve never seen him before. Set in the streets of London in the late 19th Century, this classic tale is brought barreling into modern day via special effects and blockbusting action usually reserved for more contemporary flicks. Played with sheer wit and brilliance by Robert Downey Jr, Sherlock Holmes is a buff, quick-witted and hilarious street fighter of legendary intellect and quite awesome fighting skills. Who’d have thought it? It’s action-packed, it’s funny, it’s elementary, dear Watson.

Director: Guy Ritchie
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Rachel McAdams
Rating: PG13

Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel

Kids will rollick along in adoration with this adorable flick – the squeakquel, er… sequel, to the first popular Chipmunk film, which is due for release Christmas Day. Jason Lee lends another comic turn as David Seville, whose world is turned upside down in three-part harmony by these adorable little trouble makers. Yes, Alvin, Simon and Theodore are back with their hip and happening quips and groovy song repertoire, but something a little new is on the scene. Could it be all the single ladies? Cute cute.

Director: Betty Thomas
Starring: Jason Lee, Jesse McCartney, Christina Applegate
Rating: PG
