A Christmas Night In With Butterkist!

A Christmas Night In With Butterkist!

It’s freezing outside, prices at the multiplex cinema are going up and the traffic and road rage is crazy out there.  So it’s that time when you want to stay in the ol’ gaff, lie and relax on your comfy sofa and stick on your favourite films.  And as it’s the most wonderful time of the year the standards are there to be enjoyed: Edward Scissorhands, Die Hard, Home Alone, the usual suspects (not the film).

But sometimes, like I did the other night, you want to stray away from those festive movies and watch some films you haven’t seen in a while, or you fancy revisiting, like Punch Drunk Love, Mean Streets and Where The Wild Things Are in my case.

The lovely folk at popcorn purveyors Butterkist kindly provided some bags of the world’s favourite film snack for us to enjoy while we chill out on sofa watching movies.  How very nice of them!

Tonight though, it’s all about Christmas movies!  There are so many festive classics to choose from.  But here’s a couple of eighties treats you should watch while munching your popcorn.  I’ve still have a bag left to consume!



Trading Places

1983 was a great year.  A snobbish investor and a wily street con artist find their positions reversed as part of a bet by two callous millionaires.  This is not your typical cheesy Christmas film.  It’s a funny and even touching film, with Eddie Murphy in his prime and Dan Ackroyd partly as a drunken, bad Santa, way before Billy Bob Thronton.

Gremlins

A year later comes this treat!  A boy inadvertently breaks three important rules concerning his new pet and unleashes a horde of malevolently mischievous monsters on a small town.  Gremlins: a Christmas tradition at BRWC Towers, where we watch it every year and always have a good time.  It’s so much fun!

These, and many others are ones we have to watch every year at BRWC Towers.  We recently got a NowTV monthly movie pass and pretty much all of them are on there!  Result!

I find sitting down to watch a Christmas movie is the perfect way to get into the festive spirit!  Hopefully you do too!

Thanks again to Butterkist.
