This movie is also known as Stirring, but it really doesn’t matter with this one, does it? Here we have yet another Christmas Sorority House slasher/stalker movie. There are a number of 10/10 reviews on IMDB, that are undoubtedly from the cast of this miscarriage of cinema. The overall votes reflect 3.6/10.0, which is quite […]

An American Christmas Carol is yet another adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic. This rendition, however, is not set in 19th century London, but in New England, and during the Great Depression. The story is similiar to the classic A Christmas Carol, but a refreshingly unique variant of the familiar story. Benedict Slade is an […]

Discarding Santa

Synopsis

A dumb and needless attempt to validate the War on Christmas

Director

Some Idiot Paranoid Fundie

Cast

Who Fucking Cares?

This is supposedly a documentary about the town of Leitchfield Kentucky’s new ordinance to ban Santa and Christmas. This movie is a stupid attempted cheap shot at the imaginary War On Christmas. This type of paranoia, lies and stupidity is exactly why we have Donald Trump in the White House and the traitor Mitch McConnell […]

Everyone pretty much agrees that war sucks and that the job of the military is to kill people and break things. Sometimes war can be averted, and other times it is inevitable, justified and unavoidable. Although not as deadly as WW2, WW1 had its share of horror and misery, and those soldiers that were thrust […]

I do not particularly care for animated films, super hero films, or comic book films. However, as my Christmas Movie stocking is about empty, I could not ignore what was apparently yet another Netflix Christmas movie. So, I moved to my living room, made a small fire in the hearth, and fired up Klaus on […]

I never have been a huge fan of Bill Murray, but it cannot be denied that he was great in some of the SNL skits and movies like Caddyshack and Ghostbusters. His role in Lost in Translation brought almost universal acclaim. I was disappointed in the Christmas Movie Scrooged, but nothing prepared me for the […]

I am slogging through my annual gulag of Christmas Movies, fresh off of reviewing a delightfully silly Slay Belles. We now are faced with yet another “Slay” word play Christmas film.
