The Time Machine (1960) dir. by Guy Pal (Conquest of Space, War of the Worlds). I remember sitting down and watching with my mom when I was about ten. The morlocks ver very scary but I had a crush on Yvette Mimieux. Great steampunky H.G. Wells movie.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) - recommended by Christy Bledsoe as one of her own favorite Holiday films. "This film is a traditional movie of one going from bad to good. It also has a lot of humor!"
