Hello, all you Beard Reel readers!
Christmas has come yet again, the last one of this decade.
It has surely been a good holiday season, despite all the troubles of the world. The studios keep pumping out cookie-cutter Christmas movies and the nog keeps going down by the gallon.
Movies opening today for Christmas (and brief thoughts, I haven’t seen any of them) are:
- The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus: Seems quirky and potentially interesting.
- It’s Complicated: Label me a skeptic. I will be reading the synopsis to see how the whole love triangle turns out for all of them. All too often it turns out all too well for certain parties.
- Sherlock Holmes: I have always been a fan of dear ‘ol Holmes and this new adaptation looks quite promising. Holmes has always been a very strong male character, so I will be curious to see the modern spin on that.
Despite all the global warming bantering being thrown around lately, it is sure to be a cold winter this year, but we never get any snow here anyway. Besides, when it does get cold there is nothing like a nice hot fire and toasty beard to keep you warm.
Maybe we should all buy our bare-faced friends fake beard to keep them from getting a chill.
Merry Christmas to all.
