End Credits: A Bad Mom's Christmas

Plus: Perfect Blue

We’re heading into November which can only mean one thing – it’s time for our first festive film of the year. In A Bad Mom’s Christmas, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn return as the young mothers trying to have a good time, this time full of Christmas spirit – be it gin, tequila or vodka. Christmas can be stressful to begin with, and this year our bad moms have extra guests – their own mothers, which pushes them over the edge. For fans of the first movie it’s more of the same really with a holiday twist. While the humour is boisterous, crude and designed to shock mumsy mums, there is one good message to take away – mums deserve a good present this year. You’ve only got eight weeks left, so get thinking.

Whether you’re a fan of the bad moms’ humour or not this week’s best films are all re-releases (thankfully not remakes). First up is the lesser-known Perfect Blue, an anime psychological thriller. Mima, a Japanese pop idol, wants to become an actor, but with devout fans and a change of image things don’t run smoothly, as she is pursued by a seemingly dangerous stalker and haunted by an alternate version of herself. It blurs the lines of reality and fans of Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan may notice quite a few similarities. Also returning are two classic thrillers – Stanley Kubrick’s chilling version of Stephen King’s The Shining, and the first outing for Hannibal Lecter, The Silence of the Lambs.
