It’s the first Friday of December and that means that it’s FINALLY Christmas movie recommendation time! I can’t hold out on this one so I’m actually going to recommend my favourite (or at least one of my top three favourites) movie for you guys today. There’s a couple reasons for this. Firstly, it’s awesome. Secondly, some of you may have heard about a movie coming out today called Krampus. Well, remember how annoyed I was that Hunger Games ripped off the incredible Battle Royale? It’s the same thing here. The storyline is classic European folklore but I don’t want to hear everyone going on and on about how unique and interesting it is when the movie was already made in 2010 (Rare Exports) – and it’s amazing. Ugh. America, ripping off all the great foreign films. Anyways, I digress, I suppose it’s about time to get to the review.
Hello and happy Friday, all! This week has been crazy for me. I’m terribly sorry for not keeping up with all the posts that have been going up from all my fellow bloggers out there. I feel like the Queen of Slime, the Queen of Filth, the Queen of Putrescence. Boo. Boo. Rubbish. Filth. Slime. Muck. Boo. Boo. Boo.*
*Beware, this post is funny and full of quotes (even though Game of Thrones doesn’t have anything to do with The Princess Bride).
I know I’ve been primarily recommending horror movies on Friday nights, and I’m completely willing to continue doing so, but I thought I’d let you guys weigh in. So, today please submit your vote for what genre of movie you feel like watching tomorrow and that’s what I’ll recommend.
This is my favourite movie of all time so you guys are in for one heck of a treat. It is such a beautiful film; visually stunning and emotionally gripping. The story takes places right after the Spanish civil war and follows young Ofelia as she and her pregnant mother move in with her mother’s new husband. He is a sadistic army captain and Ofelia does everything she can to try and help her mother as she becomes sicker and sicker. One day, Ofelia ventures into a labyrinth on the property and finds a mythical faun named Pan at the centre. Pan tells her that she is a lost princess and she can return to her underground kingdom if she completes three dangerous tasks.
