Its that time of year where we watch our favourite Christmas movies and such so have any of you guys gotten in the spirit yet?

For the last few years Bad Santa has been my go to choice for some Christmas laughs. Will probably watch Bad Santa 2 on Christmas Eve. Also cant go without Christmas Vacation.:)

Been watching a lot of TV Christmas shows. Doctor Who, Psych, all the old TGIF shows, Mr Bean, It's Always Sunny, Seinfeld, X-Files, just whatever I can find on Netflix and Hulu.

Nothing says Christmas more than watching a young Mel Gibson fight Gary Busey on the front lawn in Lethal Weapon.

Jingle All The Way for me. I first saw it in the cinema way back in 1996 and I've watched it every year since at the holidays. Phil Hartman was a comic genius, and the entire pro-materialism narrative of the movie is just so hilariously different from the hundreds of other films spewing out the same message about Christmas being about family and all that stuff.

It might have been panned by critics and audiences, but it will always be my favourite Christmas movie.

I've never actually been a fan. I've watched and enjoyed the first one, but never felt the urge to see it again, or even see the sequel. Speaking of which, is Bad Santa 2 any good?

Watched that today after first seeing it years ago when I was only half-watching; Jingle All The Way is great, absolutely great. I found it surprisingly funny at times and Arnie himself is entertaining, but I just couldn't get over Jake Lloyd being in the film and not imagining all of the accompanying Star Wars memes that go with him. The film kind of reminds me of Liar Liar in a way, which is a good thing because I like that movie too. Going to back to Schwarzenegger, he's great in comedy roles (see this film and Twins) despite being one of the many action heroes of the 1980s and beyond.

I haven't watched it, but critics gave it negative reviews. But they also gave Jingle All The Way negative reviews, so f*ck what they think! :p

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is actually one of my favorites. Then there's Bad Santa, A Christmas Carol and Patti Rocks (really funny & audacious). While I watch Die Hard every year, the above three movies are in my list this year.

Inside Llewyn Davis! almost forgot that one. Very...cold movie, Christmas has always been more melancholy for me than most so it resonates.

Eh, I didn't really watch any Christmas movies this year. During Christmas, I decided to try Army of One, which was perhaps even worse than The Wicker Man remake (in a good way).

 

 

...Shortly afterwards, I watched Airplane!, which is a hilarious movie. Maybe I'll watch A Christmas Story again... haven't seen that in years.

As a Star Wars fan, you can only really watch that show once. If you watch it a second time, you are f*cking nuts.
