Christmas | The Clapper Bored


During the last few days I tried to rack my brains looking for three ‘unusual’ Christmas films that you can watch over the festive season. I couldn’t come up with anything. Sure there are the obvious classics that we’ve seen time and time again, but what’s the point in recommending them year in, year out? As for ‘unusual’ films, well, they’re all pretty rubbish.

So the recommendation that I’ll make for Christmas 2010 is to switch off the TV, just for a couple of days. January is going to be great over here in the UK with Black Swan, The King’s Speech, 127 Hours and True Grit all making an appearence. So I’m going to suggest that we all lay off the TV, resist watching Avatar again on Sky Movies Premiere (it’s playing in the background as I speak) and just play scrabble, or whatever it is that makes you festive.

Whilst there are mince pies to eat, mulled wine to drink and carols to be sung, who needs Christmas movies? Sure, if Love Actually is on then it’s ok to have a quick look, but lets, universally, decided not to spend our entire festive period glued to Albert Finney doing Scrooge then the Muppets doing Scrooge then Bill Murray doing Scrooge…etc. It’s all the same year in year out- utter trash. So let’s say ‘Bah HUMBUG!’ to Christmas movies and instead spend some time by the fire or taking a long walk through the last of the snow.

Merry Christmas!
