  1. Took an 8 year old to see Alexander and the etc., yesterday – really enjoyed it (both of us laughed hysterically the whole way through).Surprised you haven’t included ” Imitation Game” about the invention of the Enigma machine during WW2 and “The Water Diviner” for the adults – they’re my must sees after Xmas!

    • Agreed. ‘The imitation game’ and ‘The Water diviner’. What about ‘Mr Turner’ (The English painter) and ‘Annie’ for the children. Saw ‘Interstellar’ recently and loved it.

  2. One time there was a great animation movie about an elephant, it was very good our granddaughter giggled all the way through. We mainly watched her delight and surprise. I remember feeling that way too, and the tingle I felt going to bed on Christmas Eve.
