Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my ponderings. Hope you have a nice stay!

Elf (2003)

Elf (2003)

There is just something about Elf, it’s one part heart warming, one part funny and two parts amazing. There doesn’t seem to be too many “recent” Christmas films that are re-watched year upon year like many other films in this list but Elf has become one of those films, for me at least. Having a entirely new story in this era of remakes is something special and to have it be so original is even better. Elf keeps you entertained and is aimed at kids but as with these types of films there are some adult orientated jokes. My memory isn’t always the best but when it comes to Elf it feels like I know the film off by heart and that’s part of its charm, I can watch this film countess times and know exactly what’s going to happen but it doesn’t dampen my enjoyment of watching the film. While Elf isn’t the best film around by any means it is still super Christmassy and fills me with joy and Christmas spirit every time I watch it. Elf scores:

Quality 7/10

Christmassy Feel 10/10

Rewatchability 8/10

Total Score: 25/30
