Christmas movies

PJMedia has a list of usual Christmas movies.

They left this one out.

The Opening scene about says it all:

Prime Minister: Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport.
General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere.
Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends.
When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love.
If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around.

Warning: the movie has bad language, promiscuity and Martin Freeman's famous nude scene (a trivia question answer) but includes many variations on love and deep friendship. The least commented on story is a girl who gives up a date that she has been longing for, in order to care for her mentally ill brother.


alas, with Drudge proclaiming the nutcases are out to hit churches this holiday weekend, maybe a more topical movie would be DieHard:

Yippie Kay Yeah M.F...

Here in the Philippines there will be a lot of security in the palenkes, malls, ferries, buses, and churches, and one hopes we remain safe from terrorism.
