This blog will serve to guide you through planning your holiday film fest for the up and coming 2020 holidays season. Though we are still in the throes of the need to social distance, the good news is that we have the ability to stream a plethora of movies into the safety of our homes. I thought I would get a jump on the entire spectrum of the holidays, including Thanksgiving and all of the winter holidays ahead.
I have listed movies that are great for families as well as for more mature audiences. Please see Internet Database (IMDb) for ratings and reviews on each individual movie. [https://www.imdb.com/]

Of course, in their own league are the Prime-time holiday specials (ABC, CBS & NBC). This year is no different.
