  • Christmas Rewatch Review – Lethal Weapon
    What better way to start a Christmas film than with a half naked, drugged up prostitute pitching headfirst off the balcony of a tower block? If that doesn’t say festive fun and frolics, well, I don’t know what does! After all… Jingle Bell Rock is playing on the sound track. ...
  • First Time Movie Review – Jingle All The Way
    Jingle All The Way is, most definitely, a Christmas film. I know that’s obvious but, with all the “is it or isn’t it” arguments and articles doing the rounds, I thought I’d better make sure everyone’s aware that I’m aware what I’m talking about… for a change! So what’s it about? In ...
  • Christmas Rewatch Review – The Polar Express
    I wonder if Tom Hanks is held in the high regard that he should be over that side of the pond? Over here actors like Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, and Helen Mirren are regarded as national treasures, and there is a genuine feeling of warmth that you get when you ...
  • First View Movie Review – The Muppet Christmas Carol
    Maybe it’s a generational thing. I was starting college for the first time when The Muppet Show was first aired. I’ve never seen Sesame Street. Well, not more than the odd clip on TV; enough to be aware of some of the history of the beasts. Throw into the mix the absence ...
  • Classic Movie Rewatch Review – Die Hard
    Die Hard is, without doubt, a cracking action film. A Christmas film though? Well, it has a weary traveller, a pregnant woman, gifts, and celebrates the value of family and the spirit of friendship. Add to those the soundtrack, the fact it takes place at an office party (a real one, ...
  • Rewatch Review – Last Christmas
    A lot of films take their titles from pop songs. They tend to then follow one of three paths. 1, There is nothing to do with the song in the film other than, perhaps, a play of the song part way through, e.g. American Pie, Whiplash, Stand By Me. 2, The song is ...
  • Rewatch Review – Deck The Halls
    Deck The Halls joins the pantheon of films that I seem to be the only person who likes them: Cats, Gemini Man, Ghostbusters (2016), Godzilla (1998), Alien Resurrection, Planet Of The Apes (2001), Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace… I enjoyed them all! OK… Phantom Menace was a bit of a disappointment. But Deck The ...
  • Rewatch Review – The Nightmare Before Christmas
    Full disclosure… I am a big Tim Burton fan.  I’ve seen and enjoyed all of his films. Yes… even his Planet Of The Apes! And the thing is that you tend to think of him as a live action director, albeit with an eye for the more cartoonish aspects of life.  ...
  • Christmas Movie Review – Happiest Season
    Happiest Season is a Christmas film. I thought I’d better just make that clear given the article elsewhere! Anyway, this is a Christmas film through and through. The essence of it is a couple going away to spend the holidays with one of the families. It’s a fairly standard rom-com ...
  • Rewatch Review – The Man Who Invented Christmas
    A lot of what we now think of as Christmas traditions going back centuries actually started out as little more than whims of fashion — many of which are less than two hundred years old. The Man Who Invented Christmas tells the story of some of those fashions. When Dickens wrote A ...
  • Rewatch Reviews – Arthur Christmas
    First off, I LOVE Arthur Christmas! It is funny, entertaining, and endlessly re-watchable. The talent on display is awesome and the attention to detail is breathtaking. There are so many little things that you either see for the first time when you watch it, or can point out to other people ...
  • Classic Movie Rewatch Review – Trading Places
    I’ve lost count of the number of times that I’ve watched Trading Places over the years, and not always as a Christmas film. It’s a comedy first and foremost, then it’s a social satire, and only then is it a holiday film. For the sake of the half dozen or so people ...
  • Christmas Indie Movie Review – Middleton Christmas
    Middleton Christmas — or There’ll Always Be Christmas — as it’s sometimes now called is, I will be blunt, not my cup of tea. It might have appealed to my mother were she still alive, so maybe it’s a generational thing. She might have overlooked the things that irked me, ...
  • Christmas Indie Movie Review – Cup Of Cheer
    Cup Of Cheer is, allegedly, a comedy. There are moments of incongruity, surprise, repetition, inversion, exaggeration, and slapstick. There’s only one thing missing and that, sadly, is anything remotely funny. It is supposed to be a parody of the archetypal, traditional Christmas film. Cup Of Cheer starts with a big city journalist, Mary (Storm ...
  • A US Classic From A UK Perspective – A Christmas Story
    A little background… At the start of the decade a change in circumstances meant I had a lot of spare time during the run up to Christmas. So what was I going to do? What I did was got hold of a load of Christmas films and thoroughly got into the ...
  • All About A Christmas Carol
    So Many Retellings Of A Short Story Scrooge, a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner… let’s make a Christmas favourite of him! I’m going to luxuriate in the knowledge that I’ll be talking about a story that is nearly two centuries old and, therefore, will be paying no heed to ...
  • Miracle On 34th Street – 1947 vs 1994
    A good story bears repeating. At least that’s the impression you get if you look into your average film studio’s output. Who knows… maybe there’s a future article in that? Anyhow, as it’s rapidly approaching Christmas, I thought I’d take a look at one of my favourite Christmas stories — ...
  • Rewatch Review – The Long Kiss Goodnight
    The Long Kiss Goodnight is a great film. It has action, thrills, humour, intrigue, suspense… everything! Geena Davis is gorgeous and believable as both the mumsy Samantha Caine and the deadly Charlie Baltimore. Confused? How about if I say that Sam Caine is an anagram of ‘amnesiac? Samuel L Jackson is brilliant ...
  • Rewatch Review – Love Actually (A Brit Perspective)
    Back in October we were talking about articles for the run up to Christmas (yes, this stuff is all actually planned!) and the idea of a rewatch review of Love Actually was mentioned, especially a British take on the film. This took me a little by surprise, as I can’t help ...
  • Die Hard and Beyond: Are They Really Christmas Films?
    There are films that are obviously Christmas films; they only make sense because they’re set at Christmas; it only feels right to watch them at Christmas; they belong to Christmas. And then there are films that are associated with Christmas and they are the ones there are arguments about. So… a Christmas ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Derelicts
    Films like Derelicts do make me worry for the friends that I’ve made over in the USA. More so than just the chance of them being shot by someone claiming to be defending his right to walk around bristling with weaponry, or catching something relatively treatable and being bankrupted. I worry ...
  • There’s an E.T. sequel and it’s awesome
    I just finished watching E.T. for basically the first time. I only saw it one time in 1982, and 38 years later didn’t remember anything beyond the “Phone Home” shtick. I wrote this grand review about the symbolism in E.T. with a lot of thoughts tending towards the introspective. I ...
  • Movie Review – Carol of the Bells
      Carol of the Bells is a lot like a Hallmark Christmas movie, and I don’t mean this in a good way. You could see the seams in the acting and directing transitions, and it didn’t come across as a polished story. That said, Andrea F. Friedman, the actress with Down’s ...
  • The Star Wars Holiday Special …Is it really that bad?
    Is it really that bad? Yes. Yes it is. With a few moments that were faintly amusing. Created using the real-to-goodness original cast of Star Wars from A New Hope, The Star Wars Holiday Special was an earnest  1978 TV movie featuring awful production values, clearly stoned actors, and some really ...
  • Movie Review – Black Christmas
      I was so excited to find out I was going to get to see Black Christmas on Friday the 13th! It’s always been a lucky day for me, until today. Today …that trend ended. I was so disappointed with Black Christmas. Let me first state that I have not seen the ...
