Thank you to all the readers who entered our recent competition.
The winner of the three festive film posters, provided by Park Circus films, is Chris Payne, who had this to say about his favourite Christmas film, The Muppets Christmas Carol (1992):
Who doesn’t love The Muppets? Jim Henson’s decision to cast them in Charles Dickens’ most celebrated tale was inspired – so sad he didn’t get to see it made. The casting is perfect, with Michael Caine delivering one of his finest ever performances, musical numbers are catchy and deliciously festive and it manages to be arguably the most faithful of all Christmas Carol adaptations. It’s hilarious (Gonzo and Rizzo perfect as Dickens and his rat sidekick) and touching (Tiny Tim’s crutch anyone? There’s something in my eye…) – even Caine’s singing can’t prevent this from being the best Christmas film ever.
Good choice, Chris! And we’d like to wish a happy holidays to all our readers, whatever festive fare you choose to watch.
Don’t forget, there’s still time to catch the re-releases of these three great Christmas classics –
