The Downtime

Festive Films

A nice friend of ours, David Adams, has been sending out his annual Christmas Movie lost to those in the loop for some years now (though he admittedly skipped 2019). Anyway, we thought that we could all use some escapism, and thus kindly he has revived the tradition and pulled together his edit for the year. We’ve added a few side helpings too, Team Earl.

The list is full of comfy films, not too cliche and not too difficult that you actually have to concentrate when you are rugged up with a belly full of xmas food on the couch, or hungover from all the drinking you had to do to get through Xmas lunch with that family member you never really talk to.
