Anti Christmas Movies
Hilarious. I laugh my ass off every time. Billy Bob Thornton is brilliant as the alcohol guzzling, sex addicted, piss poor Santa on a downward spiral who doesn't even like kids. And every year, he and his dwarf partner in crime, Santa's elf rob the department stores they work in.
Bizzare and magical. A very sweet young man who has scissors for hands falls in love.Tim Burton's imagination is incredible, Johnny Depp is amazing and it's a visual treat. Weirdly wonderful for all the right reasons.
Eddie Murphy in his prime was so cool and hilarious to watch. An investor and a canny con artist find their positions reversed as pawns in a bet by two heartless millionaires. Who says cruelty in life ceases because it's Christmas? Love Jamie Lee Curtis in this too.
In Bruges is now one of my favourite movies. It's absolutely brilliant, unusual premise and very cleverly written. Two hit men lie low in Bruges, Belgium but with an irate boss on their heels and their differing views on life and death, things take unexpected turns. Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes are too good. Superb.
A penniless relative of the Duke of D'Ascoyne schemes to inherit the title by killing the eight other heirs who stand ahead of him. Classic black comedy.
