5 Films I Watched in November/December

Hello everybody!


Today, I’m doing a post about the films I watched and very much enjoyed in late November/December. As you go through this post, you’ll realise how obsessed with Disney I am, if you haven’t already! 😂


Olaf’s Frozen Adventure
– I  went to see this in the cinema at the very end of November, and it was worth every stare for being the only people there unaccompianed by a child. I’ll preface this by saying I LOVE OLAF. He’s the sweetest of all sweet things, and this film is basically all him. It’s about him trying to find a new holiday tradition for himself, Anna and Elsa. He’s as adorable as ever, and I essentially sat in tears throughout because I loved this so much, and I am not ashamed.


Oliver and Company
– this film was so, so cute. It’s Oliver Twist with animals (which made me like it a whole lot more). I loved Oliver, his friends and thought hostile dog Georgette, who is annoyed when Oliver invades her home, was hilarious. I sobbed through certain scenes and got very worried about all the characters during the climax, and I adored the happy ending that ticked every box I wanted it to. I definetly think I’ll be watching this again!

A Christmas Prince
– this was cheesy, predictable and an AWFUL lot of fun! I really liked main character Amber, and her love interest Prince Richard. I thought the supporting cast were excellent too, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I end up watching this over Christmases to come. If you’re one of the (seemingly) few people who haven’t watched this, it’s about a journalist as she journeys to Aldovia in order to dig up dirt on the royal family, and especially the Prince, of the country.


Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo-
yes, I watched a film about Easter at Christmas. And it felt very odd, but my goodness was it glorious. I have shamefully never seen any Winnie the Pooh films despite thinking the characters are lovely. It’s about the Easter when Rabbit mysteriously refused to organise anything, and the rest of the gang trying to convince him otherwise for little Room’s sake. It was so sweet, the animation was whimsical, classic and picturesque, and the friendship and sheer joy throughout really made me smile. Also, my older dog is a mixture of Rabbit and Eeyore, so I burst out laughing quite a lot!


Pretty in Pink
– as you may know, this is basically my favourite film of all time, and if I included it in one of these posts every time I watched it then it’d probably be in them all. It’s about Andie as she navigates high school drama and chooses between rich boy Blaine and best friend Duckie romantically (I like Blaine, but I’m Team Duckie ALL THE WAY). It makes me laugh, it makes me cry and I love each of the main trio with all my heart, and hate their enemies on a similar level. The soundtrack is also fab. If you love this too, please come fangirl with me about it!

My 5 Favourite Christmas Films

Hello everybody, and welcome to day 12 of blogmas!


Today, I’m going to be chatting about my favourite Christmas films. Onto the post!

 

Miracle on 34th Street (1994)-
this is my very, very favourite Christmas film. Everything about it is magical and it never fails to make me feel more Christmassy afterwards. Mara Wilson is just exceptional in it, and Richard Attenborough pulls off the real Santa vibe perfectly. If you don’t know what this film is about, it’s the story of a little girl called Susan as she tries to convince her department store organiser mum that the Santa she’s hired is the real deal, and also them saving the store from closure.


The Snowman/The Snowman and the Snowdog
– I used to find these incredibly dull when I was younger but I adore them now. They have a really classic, cosy sort of feel to them,they capture a very special idea of winter magic and the endings never fail to make me cry. The characters never speak, but I’m still incredibly invested in them and their story.


Elf
– I think this is on a lot of lists with this title, and it is well deserved. It’s a lot sillier humour than I’d usually go for in some scenes but I think Will Ferrell pulls off Buddy’s hyper, super sweet character off well and I love the focus on finding your family and yourself.


Arthur Christmas
– this is one I have to be in a particular mood for, but I love the modern take on the Santa story, and Arthur is a lovely character who I really rooted for. It’s about Santa’s younger son, who is a bit of a black sheep in his family, as he sets off to deliver a present left behind in the North Pole to a little girl called Gwen.


Frozen
– is Frozen a Christmas film? I’m not sure, but I’m counting it because a) it’s set in Winter and b) I went to see it just after Christmas in 2013 (HOW CAN THIS FILM BE 4 YEARS OLD ALREADY?!). I love the music, I love the characters (especially Olaf, who I adore with my whole heart) and I love the animation work itself, which is stunning. I own the singalong addition for added fun too 😁
