Just to try & lighten the mood -after you know what!

What are the reader's favourite films to watch at Christmas? Doesn't have to be a Christmas film!
I have just dug out my DVD of 'Far from the madding crowd' - the classic one with Julie Christie. It used to be on TV at this time quite a lot and my dad loved it.
One of my own favourites, perfect in every department, story, acting, music score, detail, direction, casting, photography, with dark moments and a few lighter ones. The Dorset scenery is stunning. 10/10............

The 1970 version of Scrooge with Albert Finney & Alec Guinness, its not Christmas until that's been on the TV.
Bah Humbug!

I'll second the original Far From The Madding Crowd, the remake was rubbish.

Bill Murray and Patrick Stewarts versions of Scrudge.

And with Malc - Zulu but with additional helping of Indiana Jones.

If you havenít watched...

A CHRISTMAS STORY..... with Bob Clarke....can I recommend it very highly here.

It brings back memories of Christmas past... it brings in a warm nostalgia of being a kid who desperately wants an air rifle for Christmas....one to enjoy at any time during the holiday....

Especially if you know what rubbish the bbc is regurgitating.

Streaming services have opened up whole new viewing pleasures. I remember when I was younger always being subjected to the Wizard of Oz on TV, no choice, and I went from loving it to not groaning when I saw it was on again. My daughter will watch Elf on repeat if she could. I cant say I'm one for watching films over again except .. I could watch Chicago again.

The Christmas Carol starring Patrick Stuart (It was only made for television so gets overlooked) Lord of the Rings, any John Wayne film, and The King Arthur Film starring Clive Owen (2004) SmileSmile
