Blogmas Day 16 | Five Festive Films


One of the best things to do to get you in the Christmas spirit is to relax with your family in front of a roaring fire, with a nice hot cup of cocoa and a mince pie and watch a festive film together! I thought it would be a nice idea to share with you some of my favourite Christmas films today! I do already own some of these films on DVD, however I might be popping out to grab some more to watch over the holidays! :)

The Muppets Christmas Carol
"The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog taking on the role of Bob Cratchit, the put-upon employee of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppet repertory players such as Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle weave in and out of the tale, as Scrooge is visited by three spirits who show him the error of his self-serving ways. But the stubborn, miserable old man is seemingly past any hope of redemption."

Love Actually
"Follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England."

The Grinch 
"In this live-action adaptation of the beloved children's tale by Dr. Seuss, the reclusive green Grinch (Jim Carrey) decides 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 from the Whos. However, the bitter grump finds a hitch in his plans when he encounters the endearing Cindy Lou Who."

Home Alone
"When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O'Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home."

Elf
"Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa's elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results."
