Inexcuseable has finally won! She has made me endure a Christmas film, and one that I thought to be equally childish and mawkish. I thought this before I watched it, however, and had judged it based on a brief clip and Tom Hanks' voice.
Now, I think otherwise. While it is undoubtedly a film for children - older children, I would think - and it does pull on the old heart strings-
Oh, is that what that was? I didn't think we had any left.Quite. Now, where were we? Oh, yes: I actually found it to be rather good, if a little creepy.
Ugh, yes, those horrible animated faces!Especially right at the beginning when the boy wakes up and opens his eyes. I was expecting him to vomit pea soup while his head spun around!
All right. No need to get carried away.
Anyway, I don't want to harp on about The Polar Express
For that is the film we were talking about, if you hadn't already guessed.
Oh. Yes. I forgot to mention it, didn't I? Anyway, Polar Express aside, I was just wondering what your favourite Christmas film is (or movie, if you're an American)?
Our favourite isn't Polar Express, by the way. No. It's Edward Scissorhands!
Yeah, I thought our last heart-string gave out when Mary Berry died befo-
Vincent Price! It was Vincent Price you nitwit!
Was it? Wow. Don't they look alike?
Well, I suppose...
Although, I don't think I've seen Mary Berry making biscuits (or cookies) like that...
Anyway... Please let us know what your favourite Christmas film is in the comments. And if you've watched it yet this year!
