Five films to see before Christmas


The cinema year is almost over, but there are still a few choice kernels left at the bottom of the popcorn tub. From curiosity watches like How I Live Now to absolute must-sees like The Hobbit there’s plenty going on at the cineplex until Saint Nick gets to town with your new PS4 and copy of Left4Dead3 to distract you. What southern hemisphere summer Summer?

So anyway, which of these are you looking forward to? Have I missed anything you think is worth a look? What will you be seeing on the big screen and what can wait for a home release?

November 21 – Hunger Games: Catching Fire

*Wild dolphin noises* Katniss returns!

November 28 – Wolf of Wall Street

This trailer is pure class. Scorsese and Di Caprio are kings.

Sometime in November – How I Live Now

A mawkish looking teen flick that disguises a dystopian sci-fi drama set in an almost-future Britain on the eve of invasion?  Yes, please.

December 6 – Kill Your Darlings

I don’t know about this one – reviews have not been great, but I’ll pretty much watch Daniel in anything. #HarryInMyHeart

December 12 – The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug

Back to middle earth we go to look at Lee Pace and his eyebrows of dooooooom! Was there ever a more perfect cast or more perfect story or more perfect anything? (The correct answer is, NO) I cannot wait. Barrel me Bilbo!

December 15 – Anchorman: The Legend Continues

I ate a big red candle. Again. I just don’t think they can do it twice, but I’m willing to hope. Also, I just miss their musk.

    I appear to be one of the few people who really liked How I Live Now. You might find some of the pastoral romantic stuff at the start a bit twee but I loved it all, because Saoirse Ronan. As for the other picks, definitely gonna be off to the cinema for (most of) those…
