A Christmas Tale



It's been a while but I'm back. There are a couple of things I hope to post over the Winter so there should be a slight burst of activity.

Christmas is approaching and I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but for me, there are two things that indicate this:
  • The Coke advert on the television

  • The Christmas issue of the Radio Times
The first condition was met a few weeks ago, and on Saturday, the Radio Times will be purchased.

So with the Christmas mood starting to kick in, I thought it was time to watch a Christmas movie. The first one of the season was Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale. Set in Lapland, it is based on folklore and fairytale of the area and not the Coca-Cola image of Santa Claus that we are all used to. Missing kids, mauled reindeer and satanic elves are the order of the day for this Festive flick with a difference.

With that watched, and the inevitable Best Of... list appearing in the Radio Times, in true Film 2011 style, I thought I'd post my Top 5 Christmas Movies.

5) The Muppet Christmas Carol



4) It's a Wonderful Life



3) Scrooged



2) Gremlins



1) Die Hard
