    Over the last 3 Christmases we have been spoiled with there LOTR trilogy and one year we had Die An Other Day (which I thought I was going to do watching it).
    The only thing I can see round Christmas time will be The Incredible’s, which is not really for adults but have seen some good reviews.

    They sound a bit like the Fantastic Four with their powers one strong (The Thing), one invisible(Invisible Gil/woman), one that can stretch (Mr Fantastic), but no one covered in flames(Human Torch), but one that as speed (Quicksilver).

    LOTR is a hard act to follow.

    My lot have planned an all-day LOTR extravaganza where they're planning to watch them all back to back.....and we've got (will have by then) all the extended versions.

    Not really looking forward to any of the new films that much. Hopefully I'm going to get to sit in peace and quiet with my sisters kids and watch Miracle on 34th Street (the remake) it's not new but it's my all time favourite Christmas film. I'm a big softy me.

    Same here I rate it as my top film of all time and is a film they cannot make today as they studio bosses would be telling the script writers to over egg the sentimentality. As it was it was just perfect, all the jokes and touching parts come naturally.

    But what will I be watching on the silver screen I have a horrible feeling it will be Team America. :(
