"Last Christmas"

It being the first day of December, we put up the Xmas decorations, and Her Indoors and I went to see Last Christmas.

What can go wrong, I thought, it was universally panned by the critics as a cheesy, predictable Xmas rom-com, guaranteeing that you'll be pleasantly surprised, i.e. coming out thinking "It wasn't that bad, really".

What they don't warn you is that it is a real weepie tear jerker, I was welling up for the last ten minutes, thinking about my own mortality and the meaning of life and stuff.

I challenge any dad not to feel a bit wobbly at the end of the Railway Children as Jenny Agutter sees her Dad emerge through the steam....

I steeled myself to watch Holmes and Watson recently, expecting an outright turkey like everybody says it is.

But I found it perfectly enjoyable and I was chuckling the whole way through. Can't understand why everybody hates that film so much.

L, that film was very patchy and didn't move me at all. Each to his own. You might watch LC and agree with the critics :-)

RT, thanks for the tip!
