I really like christmas films, its them that puts you in a christmas spirit not as Facebook has it the blasted 'holidays is coming' advert cocacola wheel out every year. so here goes...
1) A chirstmas Carol
2) Twas the night before christmas
3) Either Home Alone films
4) Santa Claus
5) The Nightmare Before Christmas
Yeah, can i just defend my last choice, i know some of you young and hip guys will look at that and think i'm all emo cos i like this film, however its not only one of my first christmas film memories but also one of my first film memories, i think i was about 6...maybe. And yeah i've loved it even when hardly anyone else did. In fact me and my cousin used to think we were the only guys in our city that even knew about it until about a 2 years ago when it suddenly popped up.
Whether it is to do with Burton getting more popular in my age group (18) and consequently people look for films he did that they may know and instantly find one they sorta remember when they were 6 and talk about it like its their favourite film, or the whole group mentality thing i don't know. What i do know is that a part of me died when i realised it was as popular as it was, as i thought i was part of a small but loving group that had this thing to ourselves always asking each other 'why doesn't anybody else like this, why isn't it on TV more?' but secretly loving the fact that nobody knew.
