Classic Cinema Corner
Christmas Day is going to be a delight on TCM with an evening full of comedies. Check tcm.com/schedule for the latest details. Also, TCM is playing six films starring Burt Reynolds on December 26 to honor his passing last September.
I often like to have a movie challenge/project during any given year, so for 2019, I’m going to watch all 52 films listed in Jeremy Arnold‘s outstanding TCM book The Essentials: 52 Must-See Movies and Why They Matter. Many films I’ve already seen, some I haven’t. I hope you’ll consider joining in, too!
I hope to see a bunch of movies over the Christmas holiday, but for now, I still recommend Ralph Breaks the Internet, along with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Mary Poppins Returns.
