movies: December 2010 Archives

275x250.jpgA poll of movie fans has seen the Will Ferrell flick 'Elf' named as the best Christmas film of all time.

The 2003 movie beat of competition from the classic Miracle on 34th Street with Home Alone coming in third.

Other popular festive films included A Christmas Carol, It’s a Wonderful Life, The Snowman and Love Actually.

56 percent said they'd be sitting down to watch a classic Christmas film on Christmas Day while 41 percent said they'd be doing the same on Boxing Day.

Asked what makes a classic Christmas film, 64 percent said a happy ending was the most important thing... so they won't be watching Se7en then.

275x250.jpg Avatar had been named as the most pirated film of 2010 and was illegally downloaded more than 16.5 million times.

Experts from TorrentFreak say the record breaking James Cameron movie has the dubious honour of having been illegally downloaded more than any other movie.

Other frequently bittorrented movies included Kick-Ass (11.4m times) Inception (9.7m) Shutter Island    (9.4m) and Iron Man 2 (8.8m)

While studios complain this level of piracy harms the movie industry, it's worth noting Avatar has still grossed $2.8 billion.
