| Christmas Movies,...what the World needs.
With so much war and moral decay in this world at present time, Christmas has become my favourite time of the year. Not just because it's a festive season and colourful... but because its a time that represents innocence and goodness in people. We need Christmas all year round, it might make the world a better place.

And that's why I am a sucker for Christmas movies so much. At the core, I am a die hard horror nut and general cinema lover all round... but one thing I cannot get enough of is an original and off-beat Christmas movie. Over the years there's been some gems like: 8 Crazy Nights, Nightmare Before Christmas, Santa Vs the Snowman, Christmas Vacation and The Grinch (to name only a few).

While 'Olive the Reindeer' is a few years old now, I only saw it recently having heard many good things about it. It is a wonderful little film suitable for the entire family. The story is simple, sweet and subtley hilarious. One reviewer on IMDb said that Drew Barrymore dragged the movie down.... I can't disagree more. I thought she was delightful. She has child-like innocence in her voice that puts a believability into the Olive character. Not to mention that she Co-Produced this film so possibly without her involvement, Olive may not have been made (I don't know!?).

Anyhow, if you want a Festive movie for the kids and adults alike to enjoy.... rent Olive the other Reindeer. It's sure to amuse and entertain.
