Silly, with several funny and moving moments, plus all the right messages for the christmas season is just one way to describe Elf.

Starring Will Ferrell in the title role and directed by Jon Favreau; I’ve heard many people refer to Elf as their favourite Christmas movie. Having now seen it, I can’t say it’s mine but Ferrell does a positively memorable job with his character.

If you weren’t already a fan of Ferrell, it’s quite likely that after the movie, you’ll recognise and applaud his comic capabilities. Just make sure you’re in the mood for some silly.

Zooey Dechanel’s beautiful singing voice and the characters played by Faison Love and Peter Dinklage are two more of my favourite things about the movie.

Watch it for a reminder of why so many people can’t help but look forward to Will Ferrell in comedy roles. Daddy’s Home (2015) is his latest comedy, which will arrive  just in time for Christmas 2015.

Happy Film Loving 🙂


ROCK THE KASBAH (2015): Interesting New Comedy Set In Afghanistan…

Perhaps I’m showing my age, but I’ve never properly understood why everyone seems to think that Bill Murray is so very cool.

Not to say that he isn’t but it does look like his latest film Rock The Kasbah will likely help me understand.

Bruce Willis, Zooey Deschanel, Kate Hudson and Danny McBride also star. The trailer doesn’t reveal very much but it does have promise.

Happy Film Loving
