Film recommendations | Christmas Edition

Another day, another post that isn't to the blogging schedule I'd previously set myself. It's now December and since starting my new blog I've managed to post less than half that I'd originally intended to. I did today however give myself a strict rota where I'm to attempt to post every other day this month- no matter how late (or early) in the day. I however do have just less than 15,000 words to write for university within the next 2 weeks so if I do manage to go AWOL that'll be why. I'd apologise again but who is that bothered, really?

So yes, December has sprung upon us and what better way to spend writing my first post of this month than with another movie recommendations?! If you should be doing anything over the festive season it's watching a good ol' Christmas film.
