A Christmas film with friends

Blogmas day 7 is all about the cinema, Christmas style! 

Yesterday me, Tim, my sister Sarah and my friends Rachel, Sam and Livy went to the cinema to see a Christmas film. It was my first Christmas film of the season.

We went to go see ‘The night before.’ It’s a comedy starring Seth Rogan, Joseph Gordan-levitt and Anthony Mackie.

Here’s the synopsis:

Three lifelong friends embark on the Christmas party to end them all in this debauched festive comedy. 

Ethan, Chris, and Isaac have been best buds since childhood. When Ethan lost his parents14 years ago, they made a pact to spend every Christmas together. But times change and lives move on. Chris is becoming mega-famous and Isaac is about to have a baby with his wife Betsy. So the guys decide to call a halt to their festive tradition, but not before a final outrageous Christmas blowout in New York. Clad in hideous Christmas jumpers, they set off on an epic quest in search of the Holy Grail of Yuletide parties-The ‘Nutcracka’ ball. The 50/50 team of director Jonathan Levine and stars Joseph Gordan-Levitt and Seth Rogan reunite for the ultimate festive party movie. Watch out for the cameo by Miley Cyrus.

I’d give the film ☆☆☆ 3 stars as I did enjoy it and it was very funny in bits but wasn’t quite as good as some of Seth Rogans other films such as ‘This is the end’. But worth a watch for sure!

I love the cinema and my unlimited card, and you can’t beat a Christmas film at this time of year, to get you into the Christmas spirit! There are a couple of other Christmas films that are out at the moment that I would like to see too.

1. Krampus.

Now this is far from your traditional Christmas film as it’s a horror one but I love horror films so I want to see this (even if the title makes me laugh)

Here’s the synopsis:

It’s looking more like a red Christmas than a white one in this festive horror-comedy.

When Max is forced to spend a Christmas with his warring family, his antipathy towards the festive season unintentionally unleashes a monster named Krampus. A demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers, the creature invades the family’s house as all hell breaks loose and Christmas takes on a bloody new meaning…
Inspired by the German legend of Krampus, a half-goat, half-demon beast who punishes non-believers, this imaginative horror-comedy comes from writer/director Micheal Doherty, who made a strong impression with his cult 2007 horror, Trick ‘r Treat. Says Doherty: “He’s not the unstoppable monster that kicks down your door and rampages and grabs you. There’s something darkly playful about him. He’s having a good time doing what he does and he enjoys the cat-and-mouse aspect of it.”

2. Christmas with the Coopers.

This is a more traditional Christmas film about family and the festivities of Christmas.

Here’s the synopsis: 

A retired couple invite their entire family to theirs for Christmas, little knowing what they’ve let themselves in for…

Sam and Charlotte Cooper have a large family, made up of lots of children and grandchildren. But when all of them descend on the couples home for Christmas, it soon becomes apparent that it won’t be the joyful, chilled out time they were planning…
This toasty-hearted comedy boasts an all-star cast, including The Hangovers Ed Helms, Tron: Legacy’s Olivia Wilde, Captain America: The winter solider’s Antony Mackie, Little Miss Sunshine’s Alan Arkin and – as the narrator – the great Steve Martin. The movie marks the directorial debut from Danny Collins writer Jessie Nelson and is written by Kate & Leopold scribe Steven Rogers. 

So hopefully I will get to see these ones at some point over the festive period.

What films do you like to watch at Christmas? And what films are you excited about that are out soon? Drop me comment 🙂

18 sleeps to go!

Until next time,

Roseanne 🙂
