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!

Top 10 Christmas films

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

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.

Top 10 – Christmas Movies

As it is Christmas Eve today, I thought the best way to celebrate Christmas on the blog would be to do my top 10 Christmas Movies. The one’s I have grew up watching (and loving) and even more recent films will appear too. As over the past few years some very good Christmas films have been released. The best thing about Christmas films is that you are really restricted to watching them in Decemeber. I mean if you really want to you could watch them in July . . . but that’s just not the same at all! So quite a few films in my collection are only watched at this time of year.

What makes a good Christmas movie then? Well I would say it has to be a very Christmasy message usually involving or revolving around family. Most of the better ones also have the Santa factor too!
