It’s that time of year again… where I run down the good, the bad and the very bad of the movies I watched over Christmas. This is something of an RvR tradition – you can see my Christmas 2009 list HERE and my Christmas 2010 list HERE. If you want to run through some really odd choices you can go for Ross McD’s 2009 list HERE. Somehow we both missed 2011’s movies. Must have eaten too much turkey.

Why do we only watch films we’ve already seen over Christmas? It is easily our most condensed film viewing schedule of the year, yet we hardly ever see anything new. Are TV schedulers to blame? Or are we just that bit more nostalgic over the holidays? Only three of the films I watched this yuletide were for the first time – two in the cinema and one on DVD. TV sucks! Continue reading
