Classic Cinema Corner

Christmas Day is going to be a delight on TCM with an evening full of comedies. Check 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.
