THE SANTA CLAUSE
HOME SWEET HOME ALONE
DISNEY'S A CHRISTMAS CAROL
THE SANTA CLAUSE 2
In THE SANTA CLAUSE 2, Tim Allen reprises his role as Scott Calvin, a divorced man who was forced to become Santa Claus and now has to find himself a Mrs. Claus, or lose his magical powers. As long as SANTA CLAUSE 2 focuses on the problems of Tim Allen’s character, the movie is an enjoyable romp appropriate for the whole family, but there are non-Christian elements that may confuse children, especially younger ones.
IRON MAN 3
JINGLE ALL THE WAY
THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL
THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS
THE SANTA CLAUSE 3: THE ESCAPE CLAUSE
HOME ALONE 2: LOST IN NEW YORK
In HOME ALONE 2: LOST IN NEW YORK, Kevin McCallister (Macauley Culkin) separates from his vacation-bound family for a wild adventure that involves defending his favorite toy store against crooks. The movie tries to outdo its predecessor with an added dose of slapstick violence, at the expense of original's most endearing qualities. Of course, HOME ALONE 2 affirms man's need for fellowship; however, the Christmas sentiments--such as good will and friendship--regrettably melt into a muddled humanism. For many, it was not the Kevin-vs-crooks showdown that made the original a success, but the storyline that affirmed Christian values, such as family, responsibility, repentance, and reconciliation.
