Happy 1st day of December everyone.
I can’t quite believe we are in the 12th month of 2016 already, i feel like i’ve blinked and its flown by far too quick, I have decided to do blogmas as i want to get better at writing and more confident and get back to blogging as i enjoy it so much and hope you enjoy my views, rants and blogs as much as i do writing them.
So todays blog is all about my Top 10 Christmas films in my opinion, i have seen most of these on offer in supermarkets and they are all less than £5 each.
I have included films for all ages to watch and enjoy in my favourites list below;
1. Home Alone 2; Is my favourite ever Christmas film, i love this and can watch it over and over again, i know it word for word, i love the setting of this film as its in New York and when i think of Christmas i always think of the tree at the rockafella centre, Kevin gets lost at the airport and ends up causing mischief and trouble with the thieves that tried to burgle his family home in the 1st home alone film, its a classic and a must watch.
2. National lampoon Christmas vacation; This film gives you a belly laugh, well it does to me anyway, if you have ever watched chevy chase in previous National lampoon films you know your in for lots of laughs, he is having all the family over to his home for Christmas and wants to light the house up and go all out, but its not that easy, with squirrels in the tree and a cat wrapped up by the grandma its sure to make you smile.
3. Home Alone; This is the 1st of the home alone films its all about Kevin being left home alone at Christmas as all his family go to France and they forget him, he has to stay and defend his home from 2 thieves, with genius ideas to deter them from taking anything, there is lots of fun and laughs and a Christmas classic not to be missed.
4. Miracle on 34th street; This is a a remake of the classic starring Richard Attenborough as Santa clause, he plays the part as a department store Santa and try’s to bring the belief and magic back to a little girl and her mum who no longer believe, this is also based in New York and is a heart warming Christmas film.
5. The Grinch; Jim Carrey stars as the grinch who stole christmas as he plans to ruin Christmas for the cheery citizens of Whoville. Reluctantly joined by his hapless dog, Max, the Grinch comes down from his mountaintop home and sneaks into town to swipe everything holiday-related, this is a good film for the kids.
6. Disney The Santa clause; Tim Allen is a normal everyday man going about his life with his son he shares with his ex wife, with a visit from Santa on his roof on Christmas eve he slips and falls and disappears and becomes the new Santa to continue bringing gifts too all the children, there are 3 Santa clause films but this is the better of the 3 in my opinion.
7. The polar express; I love this film as one of the main characters is voiced over by my favourite actor Tom Hanks he plays the conductor on the train, When a doubting young boy takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery that shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe, great for all the family.
8. White Christmas; This is a classic Christmas film with a lovely story starring Danny kaye and Bing Crosby with lots of music and dancing based in Vermont with 2 sisters who they both fall in love with and raise money for there old captain from the war who now runs a hotel since retiring.
9. All i want for Christmas; with parents that have just separated from each other, the kids decide to do all they can to get there parents back together for Christmas, with the help of a Ben and Jerry ice cream truck, white mice and the help of there gran they all get the happy day they desired.
10. The muppets Christmas carol; A classic take on the Dickens holiday tale starring the muppets who spin it around to make it fun for all the family with Rizzo the rat as the narrator and Michael cain playing scrooge, its another must watch for the family.
With a brief guide of what the films are about i hope this helps when deciding on what to watch on these cold days leading up to Christmas day, most of these films will no doubt be on Tv over the next couple of weeks, so keep a look out.
