Warm and cosy Christmas with Warner Brothers
One thing is for sure, this year we have been kept well entertained by the PR team at Warner Brothers, and their Christmas package has been no exception! A lovely stocking arrived containing 3 movies to satisfy all the family’s needs – The Dark Knight Rises, New Years Eve and The Polar Express.
The Dark Knight Rises is a thrilling action packed sequel that sees Batman return from an 8 year sabbatical after the death of Harvey Dent. He comes back to find new villain Bane terrorising Gotham, Catwoman steals Wayne’s fingerprints and conspires to use them to bankrupt Bruce Wayne himself.
Batman is tricked and falls victim to Bane who puts him in a type of prison that only 1 person has ever escaped from. Does he get out? Of course, is it a happy ending? Not quite! I won’t spoil the bulk of the story but the question of will Batman return is on everyone’s lips by the end credits. It’s quite a dark film and maybe one we should have vetted before letting J stay up to watch it, but no harm has come!
The romantic comedy New Year’s Eve has a star studded cast and was destined to be my movie to wrap presents to, sadly it became something to get me through 24 hours of the vomiting bug! It tells the tale of how a group of individuals spend the New Years festivities and unravels how their stories become intertwined.
Funny and moving, its light hearted and honestly exactly what you’d expect it to be. It’s the perfect film for a girls night in, and hopefully I’ll persuade the hubby to watch it with me next time. It left me excited for the New Year, a real sense of put the past behind you. I would also love to see in a new year in New York – slightly more exciting than Norwich anyway!
Today I think we started a new family tradition of watching The Polar Express on Christmas Eve, in fact I think we maybe the only family that had never seen it! J was captivated from start to finish, full of questions and commentary and very keen to tell us how he believes in Father Christmas.
The train ride to the North Pole is almost as thrilling as what the children see when they get there, with the conductor adding so much to the journey. It was the perfect way to get us feeling totally festive, and J is now getting ready for bed even more excited than he was this morning.
I can’t believe we have missed this before, it’s definitely a keeper!
Thank you Warner Brothers, Merry Christmas
