Beverly Hills Pawn’s Cory loves everything about Christmas — from decorations and Christmas Eve services to spending time with family and enjoying hot cocoa. So it's definitely no surprise that the Dina Collection's resident movie expert especially loves Christmas movies. In fact, it’s tough to come up with a Christmas movie she doesn’t like, so we thought she would be the perfect person to give us some holiday-season movie recommendations.
Cory's first pick is an evergreen classic. The original Miracle on 34th Street might be over sixty years old, but it still has plenty of holiday magic left in it. It's also one of those movies that everyone has seen a few clips from, and everyone knows the plot, but quite a few people have never actually watched the whole movie from beginning to end. If you're in that category, make sure that this is the year you settle in for a holiday screening of Miracle on 34th Street.
For anyone who wants to get into the true meaning of Christmas, and what the holiday is really about, Cory recommends checking out a holiday movie made by Pure Flix. Her favorites are Christmas Angel, with Della Reese, Tamera Mowry and Kevin Sorbo, and Silver Bells with Bruce Boxleitner. If these movies don’t help you to re-discover the joy of giving and the importance of being content with what you already have, well, maybe try watching them another time or two.
Cory's final recommendation is definitely a can't miss. Cory loves the movie Elf almost as much as Will Ferrell's Buddy loves Santa, and it's no wonder. The movie is absolutely hilarious, and Ferrell is perfect in the immeasurably enthusiastic elf persona. If your family is in the mood for some holiday laughs, it's impossible to go wrong with this Christmas flick.
So get some hot chocolate, snuggle up with your nearest and dearest, and forget your troubles with one of Cory Oliver's holiday movie picks. Have a Merry Christmas
