Arguments will always come up about whether It's a Wonderful Life is a christmas film or not. I honestly don't give a damn. I'll watch this movie on Cinco de Mayo, Fourth of July and on Halloween, and it will still have me in awe of how beautiful and pure it is. Do yourself a favor and avoid the color version of this film, it is as if the characters of Rainbow Brite puked all over it. Watch it in its pure black and white glory.
