    White Christmas

    Hate to be Grinch or a Scrooge but this was a lump of coal in my stocking!

    And people really still debate whether or not Die Hard is a Christmas movie? When this gets a pass?

    I really think this is a strong year for film. One of the strongest for independent cinema in many years, maybe decades.

    Regardless of orientation, I think this is a relatable romance. Most romantic movies go like this: meet cute, a struggle or two and then bam immediately the characters are in love. The conflict tends to be - will they stay in love? Or will they stray? That…
