Ferdinand – 15 December

Would it be Christmas without an animated film to make you feel all warm and fuzzy? This story is about a Spanish fighting bull who prefers smelling flowers to getting in the ring to chase a matador. Cutesy Ferdinand is voiced by none other than John Cena and that’s enough alone to get me down to the cinema!

These films came out a while ago but you can still catch them in the cinema!

The Man who invented Christmas

At last, an actual Christmas film! It retells the story of how Dickens came to write A Christmas Carol by mixing his vivid imagination with people in his real life. This one is for those who love the classic Christmas stories!

Bad Moms 2

Although this one came out way before we’d even started thinking about Christmas, it’s got all the components for a Christmas comedy. The film follows the three ‘bad moms’ from the first film, but this time we have their mums coming to stay for Christmas! Fair to say, chaos ensues.

Daddy’s Home 2

Strangely similar plot line to Bad Moms 2, the sequel to Daddy’s Home throws in Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) and Brad’s (Will Ferrel) dads into the mix. Add in some Christmas family feuds, some hilarious children and you’ve got an easy, hilarious Christmas watch!
