On Channel 4 now. I’m a 37 year old bloke and it never fails to make me bawl like a baby. Almost all the way through. Purest nostalgia. The music, the animation and the story is just perfection. Plus it’s got Bowie so bonus cool points. Anybody else got something that never fails to make them blub?
When my cousin was little, my aunt had to rewind the video and show her the backwards footage of the Snowman coming back to life or she wouldn’t stop crying
It’s not even the sadness at the end that gets me. It’s literally everything about it.
Singin’ In the Rain (at that point in the film).
The final scene of Silent Running.
it’s not ALed Jones singing on that
I sometimes wonder if he wakes up with extreme guilt
Nah he strikes me as the sort of bloke who’d ring the lad who sang it originally every week just to laugh down the phone
Screaming at his reflection in the bathroom mirror everyday “I’M A FUCKING FRAUD”
but enough about Guardiola
Drives past the other fella’s house in his solid gold car throwing burning £20 notes onto the front garden.
wait for the guy’s kids to build a snowman, then drives round and takes it back to his house as any snowman is his
Just sends some coal and a carrot back in the post with a note cut out of newspaper headlines.
Mad that the wee boy turned out to be David Bowie
pays the producer of Songs of Praise £30 a week to sneak in the message ‘unlucky Peter you sucker’ into the credits of the show
Don’t mind the Snowdog sequel but the song is far too schmaltzy
Watches the snowman every year and looks his family in the eyes professing throughout “That’s me singing that is”
“Dad, just leave it, yeah”
Actually I don’t like that they’ve redesigned Santa when it’s supposed to exist in the same universe as Father Christmas
