The films I did manage to watch are listed below:
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010) - 4 stars
- Deck the Halls (2006) - 2 stars
- The Damned United (2009) - 3 stars
- The Social Network (2010) - 4 stars
- Burke and Hare (2010) - 3.5 stars
Of the two movies that scored 4 stars, I have to choose The Social Network as my film of the month. Whilst I probably enjoyed this and Harry Potter equally, I can accept that Harry Potter is not for everybody, and The Social Network is likely to have a far more universal appeal (although clearly Harry Potter will make more money).
Film not to waste your time on is easy with this list too - Deck the Halls. It's a not bad example of a standard Christmas movie, but everything else I watched in November far surpasses it.
