7 Snow Films!

With the current weather being so cold and the threat (or maybe you actually have some) of snow is a daily occurrence. I live in the North East of England and we have been pretty let off with it so far only the odd downpours but not actually lying on the ground I thought I would quickly put together a list of films which have quite a lot of snow in them!

I have tried to mix some obvious choices with some you might not expect!

Back in 2010 . . . I completed my Top 10 list of Christmas films – Top 10 Christmas films

Take a look at things that make a good Christmas film here.

And 7 Films I Always Watch at Christmas! 

What makes a good Christmas Film?

A lot of blog posts and talk is currently surrounding Christmas films, so I decided that I would think about what makes a good Christmas film. Especially as it’s not that we get new quality Christmas films every year it always seems to be older now classic films which everyone makes sure they watch at some point in the build up to Christmas. These must have key elements which make everyone love them and want to watch them year in year out. I think that does help make these films extra special, as long as you get the formula right recent times have been more Christmas Turkeys rather than classics.

7 Films I always watch at Christmas

Every year as it gets close to Christmas time I find myself watching the same films you watch every year, but the good thing about them is that it’s special because you only watch them during a certain few weeks in December. So these seven films will be in no particular order and I will attempt to say what I like about them and why exactly I look forward to watching them at Christmas time.

Christmas 2011 at the Movies

It’s that time of year again . . . time to watch all of those Christmas films! I thought a small recap of the films I have already reviewed on my blog and the Top 10 Christmas films list I completed last year would be a good way to start and then films which have not been reviewed yet will be added onto the blog! Possibly with more Top 10 lists if I can think of some to do!

Cool Off With The Classics

Cool off with the Classics . . . a blogathon consisting of a top 10 list of some classic black and white films. It didn’t really take very long for a few of the films to come straight to my mind for this list. I am not going to put them in any particular order, but 10 films are included.

Marc from Go, See, Talk has done it again with another fantastic blogathon and you can see the original post linked to everyone else’s posts here.

While some films came straight to my mind, I actually found it quite difficult to get to ten films without ending up with mainly Mae West and Marx Brothers films in the list. This has made me realise that I have a lot of films that I must watch!

After making the list I got to thinking about how all of the films I have chosen have so many quotes that are still repeated and loved today. Is that due to the black and white look of the films or just how times have changed? Also performance wise just seems to be so much better than a lot of the current day films.
