117: Christmas Vox Pop 2

Welcome back for our second Vox Pops show, where our listeners and contributors tell us their favourite Christmas films.

This is as much fun as the first was, with more traditional and controversial selections. Oh and that Christmas hate movie which has now been mentioned in our last two shows, appears again. This time Phil really lays out why people don’t like this very successful movie. What is it? Listen to the show to find out.

At the Flicks · 117: Christmas Vox Pop 2

As for our guests for this second show, we have two double acts :

Ultimate Christmas fan Sam and her son Isaac, who become perturbed when they learn the “best Christmas film ever” has not been selected for the At The Flicks advent calendar. An upset Jeff quickly passes to Graham,

Reviewers Phil and Darren with their views on what makes a great Christmas film and sharing with us some of their seasonal traditions. All this before Phil goes full “roasting” mode!

After all the big build up of these last two shows, tomorrow we reveal just what the At The Flicks team are doing for their big festive spectacular. Come back then for an earlier Christmas present for all our listeners.

Until then stay safe and try to get that star on the tree without tipping the whole thing over.

Bye for now.
