Well aware of how badly you can react Q which is why I wasn't going to get into a PM exchange with you which would normally have been my first instinct with anyone else. I did get the joke such as it was in fact but I'm not sure chris would have been laughing too much all the same.

For what it's worth I think chris may have overreacted to your first post and hopefully he'll notice you've taken on board what he said.

I sincerely hope so too. I'm trying hard to avoid a flame war.

Okay, just to get the thing back on topic, you know what would be a better Christmas film than The Human Centipede? The Shining.

Hear me out, please. It's got all the ingredients of a wonderful Christmas film!

10 Reasons Why The Shining Is A Christmas Film...

1. It's set during the winter in a cosy building.

2. It's got a family that needs to learn the virtues of being together.

3. Jack Nicholson is in it, which makes it doubly Christmassy (Jack= Jack Frost, Nicholson= St Nick).

4. There's a snowman at the end.

5. There's celebration and festivity and a lot of alcohol.

6. There's children in it!

7. Ghosts. Part of Christmas story tradition since at least 1843.

8. The dangers of cabin fever and ill-preparedness for winter are shown.

9. There's a lot of red in it, and red is the colour of Hogsw- ahem, Christmas.

10. And it has families breaking under the strain, a homicidal maniac wielding an axe, lotsa blood, and "HEEEEERE'S JOHNNY!" So of course it's like Christmas at home. :lol:

I watched the Fifth Element today and I think that could be a good Christams film with its bigga badda boom's and chickens.

Yippy kai aye Die Hard for after tea.

You'll be hard pressed to beat Shrek for a bit of light after dinner sit back and enjoyness either. A flying talking donkey, can't make that stuff up.
