Tim The Tool Man Taylor as Santa?! It’s like every 90s child’s dream come true to see him all plumb and jolly on the big screen. Too bad Al wasn’t in the film. Plus the little kid was too cute for words “I wanna go with youuuu Dad.” The film as a film isn’t bad either, the acting is decent, good story line, etc. It only starts to get bad when they insist on making a sequel…and then a sequel to that sequel. Good things never last.
Charlie Brown Christmas
“Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about??”
Yes, yes you see it every year. Rapphieee! You’ll shoooot your eye out! Remember to drink your ovaltine?!? You remember these lines clear as last weekend and there’s one reason for that: it’s a classic film. Up there with like, It’s a Wonderful Life. Of course you get sick of it after a while, you dread the 150 repeats on Christmas Day, and for some reason, after all these years, it still gives you a weird little feeling in your belly. What’s with these “kid” films anyways?
It’s not a holiday movie or anything, but totally worth watching again on Christmas. Brings back all the warm and fuzzy memories of 1995.
Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer
You know the little animation clay movie thingy, where Rudolph is some whiny, over-privileged deer and that weird Elf just wants to be a dentist. What elf wants to be a dentist? Another strange film, but let’s face it, it helped shape your childhood. There was a time in your young years that you even wanted to be a dentist too…
Home Alone 1 & 2
It’s a Wonderful Life
Oh Clarence! Mary! The children! Zuzu! How blind I’ve been! Ah, gotta love it.
A surprisingly good new-ish holiday movie. We love it when the guys from Swingers reunite. We can all relate to at least some part of this film…
Will Ferrell is the man. The classic “Bro” film for the holidays.
National Lampoons Christmas
Oh Chevy Chase! What else can possibly go wrong on your Christmas?
