Christmas Countdown: Elf (2003)

While Chicago is clearly a Mecca for suburban Christmas joy, it's hard to beat the urban majesty of a snow-draped Big Apple. New Yorkers know how to celebrate Christmas; for a city that's lit up like a tannenbaum year round, this should come as no surprise.

It's against this backdrop that Elf is set. The plot has been done many times before: a naive bumpkin travels to the big city, gains knowledge and power, and falls in love.

Elf is probably the closest thing that the noughties have to a classic Christmas film. It's definitely worth seeing.

For my money there is nothing cooler than the idea of a city folding in on itself.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.

The Avengers hits theatres in 2012.
