Theater Thursday

It's Theater Thursday! What's Theater Thursday? Well it's a day (always Thursday) that you can pick out a movie that you love or something that you think others should watch that's out on dvd. Grab the Theater Thursday button, post about your movie choice and then come back here and link up! That way everyone will have some great movie ideas and choices going into the weekend. 

Christmas Holiday Edition

This week's featured holiday movie is, Scrooged
Scrooged is one of the most underrated Christmas movies if you ask me. Scrooged stars Bill Murray as television executive Frank Cross. He's in charge of a live Dickens Christmas Story being told on Christmas Eve on his station and he's having a hard time making it through the day. He's become so mean to everyone that he's going to be sent three ghosts to remind of what things were like, how things are now and what they will become. Of course, being the selfish and closed off person that he is, he doesn't believe it. 

That is until they bring in his old girlfriend Clarie Phillips (Karen Allen). Then he decides to really try to figure out if he's going crazy or if it's all really happening. Will he change his ways or remain the scrooge that he already is. Will his production of a Dickens Christmas go off without a hitch or will there be a twist to a Christmas classic?

If you've never seen this version of Scrooged you are missing out! Bill Murray is a comedy genius and this is one of his best movies.
