Day four into the Christmas advent calendar of films, and already I can see the Christmas spirit wearing thin. Don't worry, it's a Tuesday night, we are going to watch something that is as fun as it is not about Christmas.
Shane Black, 105 mins
This film is probably one of Val Kilmer's finest moments, and oddly enough creeped under a lot of people's radar's when it came out in 2005. Playing around with LA and the acting culture, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is a kind of reboot of the noir genre, as a criminal escaping a robbery is asked to audition for the role of a detective in a movie. Again, it's not the most “Christmassy” of films – our momentum for festive fun will build as the month gathers pace – but being set around Christmas it's a good solid film that is ideal for a Tuesday night – and has it's charms that won't disappoint you.

While it's funny, it's also loud and a bit tongue in cheek. And if you aren't in the mood for that, then I need to find something equally charming, but which is quiet, subdued, and entirely unamerican. Enter then my alternative film recommendation:
Conor McCormack, 12 mins.
This short film follows the the life of a man struggling to fill his role as a young father. At only 23, he already has 7 children, and is awaiting his 8th while the family prepares for an usual Christmas. It's a short British documentary that highlights British film making talent, and at only 12 minutes long is worth a few moments of your time,
so why not give it a go – what's more, you can watch the whole thing below for free!
