Well, the Mayans were wrong (who would have guessed it?), and I celebrated by watching Mulholland Drive last night (my review will come up later this week). Anyway, I won’t be able to post much within the next few days, so my question post will be up today.
Since it’s the Christmas season, everyone talking about some of their favorite holiday movies like A Christmas Story, It’s A Wonderful Life, and Elf (Die Hard is not a Christmas movie). But my question today will be the opposite: what’s your least favorite Christmas movie.
I’ll start off by saying the one that I think is the worst: Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny. Last year I declared that Santa Clause Conquers The Martians was, but that was before I saw this enormous mess. I don’t think any of you have heard of it before, but basically Santa is accidentally stranded in Florida and is saved by a guy in a giant rabbit suit. You can buy the RiffTrax version of their website or Amazon (the commentary is the best way to watch it). See a bit of it below:
But since Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny is enjoyably bad, I would have to say How The Grinch Stole Christmas is my least favorite (there’s a difference in my least favorite and what I consider to be the worst). I like the original story by Dr. Seuss, I like the animated short, I like director Ron Howard, and I like Jim Carrey. That makes me a perfect candidate, right? Wrong. Watching this was a painful experience and was oddly very creepy. It still is a lot better than the adaptation of The Cat in the Hat.
But what would you pick?
