ODEON

The votes are in.

Yesterday, with a pair of ODEON tickets on offer, we asked you to name your favorite Xmas movie released this century and why.

You answered in your tens,

But there could be only one winner

Third Place:

Polar Express (2004)

Liam Deliverance writes:

It’s probably a difficult genre to pull off, Christmas means a lot of different things to different people. I’d imagine that to make a new Christmas movie set in modern times must be harder still with all the consumerism and other stresses and pressures.

Polar Express was written in 1985 by Chris Van Allsburg, it might make a nice present for some young man or lady? A simple plot full of magic, adventure and visuals and well executed by director Robert Zemeckis with Tom Hanks playing the train conductor. Not a perfect film but it does manage to capture some of the spirit of Christmas….

Runner Up:

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)

Daisy Chainsaw writes:

The redemption of RDJ, and a career best from Val Kilmer…

Winner:

In Bruges (2008)

Rosette of Sirius writes:

It only mentions Christmas a few times but it capture the darkness melancholy that so many people experience at this time of the year. But there’s also the morality behind the story that like all great Christmas stories proves nobody is beyond saving. Redemption for them all? No. But hope… just a little.

Thanks all.

Yesterday, we asked you to give an ‘elevator pitch’ for Bodyguard 2.

On offer were four tickets to see an exclusive screening of The Bodyguard (1992) on March 28 at selected ODEON cinemas.

We have whittled down the entries to five pitches.

Daisy Chainsaw‘s pitch:

Bodyguard 2: Electric Boogaloo. Frank Farmer’s son by a heretofore unmentioned ex wife, (Liam Hemsworth) follows in his father’s footsteps protecting former child star turned wild child Wiley Myrus (Miley Cyrus), famous for her role as Dakota North, a teenage singer who nobody recognised without her wig. She’s been getting threats from an anonymous source that eventually turns out to be Farmer’s other son (Chris Hemsworth).

Optimus Grime‘s pitch:

Having prevented so many assassination attempts on various clients Frank finds there’s a hit out on him and at his age HE needs a bodyguard, who of course in these modern times, is a woman. Hilarity ensues in Bodyguard 2 – The Bodyguard’s Bodyguard

Weldoninhio‘s pitch

Bodyguard 2: Bodyguard Harder. Frank is protecting a billionaire in the middle of a messy divorce, everything is almost finalised and the divorce will be done and dusted in 48 hours. His client is worried that his ex will try and bump him off before the divorce gets over the line so that she can keep his fortune. With just the weekend to go, Frank’s client is poisoned. With his last few breaths, he asks Frank to pretend he is still alive until the divorce is through. Frank, dutybound, agrees. Cue, hilarious Weekend At Bernie’s comedy as Frank tries to keep his client out of the way of doctors, his ex-wife and bullets and bombs.

Cloud‘s pitch:

‘It opens with Rachel Marron’s death, Frank Farmer tweets: ‘Rachel has passed away. RIP u will live on forever. Cant believe it. I wanna run to u. Really cant believe this. @’.  The rest of it will just write itself.

Cool Hand Lucan’s pitch:

Bodyguard 2: Riverguard. Michael Flatley plays both the role of bodyguard and entertainment star. The two Flatleys fall in love with each coz they’re both rides. The third act is largely CGI gay porn set to a trad Irish soundtrack.

Only YOU can decide.

Lines must close at 7pm MIDNIGHT!
