Elf

Elf
  • 2003
  • US
  • 1h 36min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: David Berenbaum
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Bob Newhart, Ed Asner, James Caan, Zooey Deschanel, Mary Steenburgen

Buddy (Ferrell) is a big Elf who, though accepted in his Elvish community at the North Pole, manages to wreak havoc on a daily basis. Fed up and confused by his charge, Papa Elf (Bob Newhart) sends him to the US in search of his true identity. Hilarious and puerile Yuletide comedy.

The Holiday

The Holiday
  • 2006
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Nancy Meyers
  • Written by: Nancy Meyers
  • Cast: Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Jack Black, Shannyn Sossamon, Eli Wallach, Edward Burns, Rufus Sewell

Two ladies with guy trouble swap homes. Amanda (Diaz) ends up with Iris' brother (Law) in the UK, and Iris (Winslet) befriends funnyman Miles (Black) Stateside. This fairly repellent life swap romantic comedy was written specifically for these actors, but you wouldn't think it.

Home Alone

Home Alone
  • 1990
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Columbus
  • Written by: John Hughes
  • Cast: Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, John Heard, Catherine O'Hara

Peter and Kate McCallister (Heard and O'Hara) have an eight-year-old brat and wisely – albeit accidentally – leave him behind in Chicago when they go on holiday to Paris. Left to his own devices young Kevin (Culkin) has to deal with two bungling burglars (Pesci and Stern) who threaten to invade his peaceful haven. Jolly, if sadistic, scare-comedy antics produced by teen flick veteran John Hughes.

Honey Boy

Honey Boy
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alma Har'el
  • Written by: Shia LaBeouf
  • Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Lucas Hedges, Noah Jupe

Otis (Jupe, later Hedges) is the son of a difficult father, James (LaBeouf, playing a character based on his own father), in a story that goes back and forth between the 90s and 00s. Obviously a cathartic tale for actor turned screenwriter LaBeouf, it’s indulgent, irritating and emotional but has impressive performances and memorable imagery.

It's A Wonderful Life

It's a Wonderful Life
  • 1946
  • US
  • 2h 9min
  • U
  • Directed by: Frank Capra
  • Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to warm even the most glacial heart.

Knives Out

Knives Out
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rian Johnson
  • Cast: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, Christopher Plummer

When mystery writer Harlan Thrombey (Plummer) is found with his throat slit, puffed-up private detective Benoit Blanc (Craig) gets on the case. A wickedly knowing, flamboyantly bitchy take on the whodunnit, with a great cast, bags of style and a splendidly outrageous comic turn from Craig. Bloody good fun.

The Muppet Christmas Carol

The Muppet Christmas Carol
  • 1992
  • US
  • 1h 25min
  • U
  • Directed by: Brian Henson
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Steven Mackintosh, Dave Goelz, Jerry Nelson, Frank Oz, David Rudman, Steve Whitmire

It's Christmas time, and nasty old miser Scrooge (Caine) needs to be taught a lesson by three seasonal ghosts. Colourful version of Dickens' classic tale that will please the kids and keep the adults smiling with its little irreverent spices.

Scrooged

Scrooged
  • 1988
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Richard Donner
  • Cast: Bill Murray, Karen Allen, John Forsythe, Bobcat Goldthwait, Carol Kane, Robert Mitchum, Alfre Woodard

Umpteenth screen version of Dickens' Christmas Carol, with Murray as a miserly television exec determined to exploit the yuletide schedules for all they are worth. He learns the error of his ways just in time for a cringe-inducing finale demanding peace on earth and good will to all men. Despite lavish effects and a motley constellation of guest stars, this is a formula comedy of contemporary cynicism whose uneasily vicious humour seems at odds with the spirit of the original. Alastair Sim, where are you now?

  • Directed by: Xiaoshuai Wang
  • Cast: Liya Ai, Jiang Du, Zhao-Yan Guo-Zhang

Yaojun (Wang Jingchun) and Liyun (Yong Mei) are a married couple whose son drowns while playing with friends. Epic drama of 40 years of Chinese life, with a candid, observational eye; tumultuous and wrenching but ultimately an uplifting tale of the resilience of the humans spirit.
