As I love Christmas, the festive films are what I look forward to! :)

 

Miracle On 34th Street is a good one.

 

Santa Clause 3 we watched the other day.

 

I remember watching a sad film called The Christmas Tree (When Wolves Cry) with William Holden, always liked this one.

 

The classic Scrooge with Alastair Sim :tumbsup:

Mainly any version of A Christmas Carol/Scrooge...except the Muppet one....I try and watch every version that's showing on TV.

 

Polar Express I enjoyed when I watched it a couple of years ago with the little fella.

 

I suppose It's a Wonderful Life is one of my faves too, although Christmas with the Kranks is pretty funny.

I have forgotten the name of it but it's the film with Goldberg as a very bad Santa killing lots of people :christmas:

Along with the TSO DVD, The Ghost Of Christmas Eve :tumbsup:

Christmas Vacation far and away. It's a Wonderful Life would be second. On the other hand, Tim Allen should be shot and pissed on (something he became familiar with in prison, I'm sure [insert idiotic manly grunting here]) if he ever considers making another Christmas movie. I still get a huge kick whenever I think of his appearance on The Academy Awards after the first season of Home Improvement, and the producers obviously thought he was more famous than he really was because once he started into that foolish grunting schtick, the camera panned to Al Pacino, who leaned over to Beverly D'Angelo, and clearly mouthed the words, "Who the fuck is he?" When the camera swung over to other big stars, they had similar looks of bewilderment, shoulders were shrugged, and some were shaking their head in disbelief. The vast majority of big screen actors had no fucking idea who this doofus was.

For me, WONDERFUL LIFE is a must see, plus VACATION.

 

A "new" holiday favorite at my house is ELF with Will Ferrill and James Caan. It's not brain food but it's funny and kind of sweet :)

I despised Bad Santa to the point of wanting to crawl through the screen and kill every single nitwit character in the film. Thornton's drunken oaf Santa stumbles into a throng of people waiting for their kids to see the lame-ass prick. He's carrying a broken liquor bottle, and spouting,"Fuck this, Fuck that" and generally being a fucking jerk, and not one person steps up to straighten the asshole out. THAT infuriated me. I can guarantee this - if some drunken lout were acting like that in front of my kids, they'd have been shipping him back to the North Pole in a body bag. Then there was that mouthy, ill-tempered piece of shit elf, whom everyone he mouthed-off at was too terrified of the little bastard to pick him up and stuff him a garbage can where he belonged. Such characters can only exist in the minds of the Coen brothers and their employees, and sure as shit, the Coen brothers were responsible for producing this junk, and it's no secret they likely overhauled the scriptwriters' work. I don't get the Coens; I don't even try to anymore. So, what possible use is it to have a grown man beat the fuck out of a bully, who was all of about 14 years-old? At least Christmas Vacation has characters in situations I can identify with, but who the hell can identify with characters generally being loudmouth pricks free of any form of believable opposition? I didn't even grin once during that movie, but I've never forgotten the feelings of outrage - especially when I realized the wife forgot to return the video to the store on time and I got soaked with an additional late charge. Call me Ebenezer if you choose, but I ABHOR that movie!

'Silent Night Deadly Night 2' is the only Christmas film I would ever subject myself to. I detest the rest of them.

I usually end up watching Home Alone 2 by myself on Christmas Eve. The fam is usually doing something else, and I enjoy being alone for a minute.

    • I think I recall listening to one of their albums. Don't they have a Southern Rock/Country vibe? Or maybe I'm just reading into their name, which makes me think of Brad Paisley.

    • Photo credit: Tim Saccenti Metallica dropped an atomic bomb this morning, announcing the brand new album 72 Seasons and sharing the first single, “Lux Æterna”. “Lux Æterna” is old school thrash, picking right up where Hardwired… to Self-Destruct left off, only this time, guitarist Kirk Hammett was involved in the writing. 72 Seasons will be available April 14, 2023, via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg Fidelman with founding members James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track album is Metallica’s first full length collection of new material since 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. Here’s the track listing for 72 Seasons: 01. 72 Seasons 02. Shadows Follow 03. Screaming Suicide 04. Sleepwalk My Life Away 05. You Must Burn! 06. Lux Æterna 07. Crown Of Barbed Wire 08. Chasing Light 09. If Darkness Had A Son 10. Too Far Gone? 11. Room Of Mirrors 12. Inamorata “72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves,” said Hetfield of the album’s title. “The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”   https://bloody-disgusting.com/music/3741721/metallica-returns-with-new-album-single-and-tour/
    • Yeah I wasn't expecting them to do much as it is their first World Cup since 86....at least they are competing hard.....now if they start making the World Cup on a regular basis then expectations will rise in the years to come....
    • New single. From Frontiers: Revolution Saints, the band centered around vocalist/drummer Deen Castronovo, have returned with a new line-up and a new single, 'Eagle Flight'. Castronovo is joined by new companions, bassist Jeff Pilson and guitarist Joel Hoekstra for Revolution Saints 2.0 and 'Eagle Flight' is their brand new musical statement announcing their arrival.    Revolution Saints was initially put together by Serafino Perugino, President and Head of A&R for Frontiers Records, to showcase the stunning voice of Deen Castronovo (Journey, Bad English, Hardline). Castronovo has always been a well respected drummer, but fans who took note of his background vocals over his career and who attended Journey shows and saw him take lead vocals on 'Mother, Father' during the band's set, came to realize he also had an amazing voice. Revolution Saints was, and always has been, a vehicle to show the world Deen's incredible singing talents.   For the first three Revolution Saints albums, "Revolution Saints", "Light In The Dark", and "Rise", Deen was joined by bassist/vocalist Jack Blades (Night Ranger) and guitarist Doug Aldrich (The Dead Daisies, ex-Whitesnake, DIO). Produced by Alessandro Del Vecchio, those three albums brought back the classic melodic rock style that thrilled and delighted legions of fans in the ‘80s and ‘90s and still does today! Inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies, and hooks for days is what you get in spades across those three albums.    While Revolution Saints MK I left an indelible mark on the melodic rock world, it was time for MK II to be born. Deen, having recently re-joined Journey, was feeling invigorated and inspired and ready to sing his ass off. Filling Blades and Aldrich's shoes would be no easy feat, but, mercifully, the exact right guys were found for the job. Joel Hoekstra is a current member of Whitesnake, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Iconic, as well as having his own solo project, Joel Hoekstra's 13 and is an absolutely stunning guitar player, able to play multiple styles. Jeff Pilson, currently a member of Foreigner, Black Swan, and The End Machine, is also known for his time in Dokken and his more recent production work. Two stellar musicians to compliment Deen's singing and drumming is exactly what was needed for Revolution Saints 2.0 and that's exactly what we've got here.    Fans of Revolution Saints first three releases are going to find much to be delighted with here with the new, rejuvenated Rev Saints and their brand new single, 'Eagle Flight'!    A new studio album will be released in the first half of 2023.    Line-up:  Deen Castronovo: lead vocals, drums  Joel Hoekstra: guitars  Jeff Pilson: bass        
    • And unfortunately, for Canada, they're all better teams. 
    • The Jabberwocky songs have been knocking around for quite some time now, but I agree, being the kind of guy he was, I bet there is even more hidden away somewhere.
