Movie of the Day

Miracle on 34th Street

Although I got into the yuletide slasher flick Silent Night, Deadly Night yesterday and plenty of more Christmas horror lined up, today I actually wanted to watch something cheery and not even in an ironic way. Although It’s A Wonderful Life will always be my favorite Christmas movie, and one of my favorite movies period, Miracle on 34th Street is incomparably more sappy, corny and sickeningly sweet, containing not of Wonderful Life’s darker moments, and actually trying to prove to the audience that, yes, there is a Santa Claus. It’s hokey and great at the same time.
