In the run-up to Christmas I lovelovelove watching a Christmas film on a Saturday afternoon each weekend. Christmas movies cover all moods of film-watching. Feeling blue? Elf will never fail to cheer me up (I will happily watch that any time of year). Need to see stuff getting blown up? Die Hard is the one for you. Want to be 10 years old again? Home Alone! Remember when films in the 80s were all about gunge? Bright green gunge? Hello Gremlins!
These are my favourite Christmas movies, and I’ve made some posters to celebrate their status as my essential Christmas Movie Club films.
1. Gremlins (1984)
2. Home Alone (1990)
3. Die Hard (1988)
4. Elf (2003)
So what’s the Christmas movie club?
Get your friends together to watch one of the above films. The host is contributing with their delightful house, so all you other guys can bring the popcorn, beers and holy trinity of Christmas snacks (Twiglets, Cheeselets and monkey nuts). Rotate houses each weekend and voila – you have just formed your very own Christmas Movie Club. Cute huh? Dress code optional, but dodgy Christmas jumpers and onesies seem most apt.
