    I’ve just seen It’s A Wonderful Life for the first time. How the fuck did I manage to go this long without seeing it?

    Ian there are quite a few films that you desperately need education on, IAWL is the tip of the iceberg and such an amazig film.

    James Stewart is literally my favorite actooor of all time, brilliance.

    Yeah, it’s a fucking killer movie. It’s funny how it’s got this reputation of being some sappy, too-sweet slice of holiday bullshit…and then you watch it and it’s about 2 hours of severe depression followed by a few minutes of redemption. Definitely one of the most thematically mis-remembered films.

    And yes, Stewart is incredible.

    But in all seriousness, how can you be a Dwarf fan in particular and only just have seen it?

    “Wait… I… I don’t have your money… it’s in Bill’s house!”
    “Hey, what are you doing with my money in your house, Bill?”

    I know, and watching it makes me want to immediately re-read IWCD.

    It’s a Wonderful Life never made it our way this year, but I saw it on the big screen the other year. It’s an excellent film.

    Calendar is rather good.

    THEY CHANGED THE DOCTOR WHO THEME.

    I give It’s A Wonderful Life a view every Christmas. Sublime stuff. If the frequent nods in the novels wasn’t enough to prompt me to rent the VHS many years back, the fact that it’s both Rob and Doug’s favourite movie definitely was.

    A sad case of an old film not being accessible to a lot of people simply because its in black and white. Oh, and Donna Reed is hot. Or was, before she…um, got old and died.
