Christmas Movie Month 2012 Commences!

The Nightmare Before Chriastmas - What's This

It’s that time of year again. 2012 has nearly gone, and yet it always seems like there’s even more to do this time of year than any other time of year, what with Thanksgiving leading into Christmas and then into the New Year. I spent last week with my family for Thanksgiving, as well as my mom’s birthday soon after, and so I didn’t really get around to getting my Miracle on 34th Street review out around the time that I intended, so I basically considered it an unofficial start to my second Christmas Movie Month. It’s mere coincidence that my mom wanted to go see Rise of the Guardians, which features Santa, but isn’t necessarily about Christmas, so that was kind of a happy accident. Now, however, I’m switching gears fully into Christmas mode, once again!

In case you missed any of my reviews from last year, here’s a quick rundown of films that I reviewed for Christmas 2011:

Elf
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

The Polar Express
Meet Me in St. Louis
Die Hard
Scrooged
, A Muppet Christmas Carol, and Disney’s A Christmas Carol in an ill advised Grudge Match Review that I came to despise doing – Part 1 & Part 2
Joyeux Noël

For this year, I plan to stay on task a bit more, and I’ve already got several reviews planned! Let’s also not forget that the aforementioned Miracle on 34th Street pulls double-duty as both a Thanksgiving and Christmas film! I also promised last year that I would review Eight Crazy Nights for those of you who celebrate Hanukkah, but the film disappeared around that time from Netflix, and I wasn’t about to use up a Blockbuster movie exchange. This year? … Maybe. But I’m not making any promises. That movie was pretty awful… Anyway, aside from maybe a few incidental theatrical reviews and one “special” review that I’m planning on writing at the end of this week (hint: it’s all about the supposed oncoming of the end of the world, and I’m not about to watch that movie or write that review without a few drinks to help me along), you can pretty much just expect Christmas movies until that day comes!

Until then, just in case I don’t get around to that awful Adam Sandler Hanukkah movie, please enjoy this classic Saturday Night Live animated music video instead, “Christmas for the Jews”:

    I seldom leave comments, however I looked at a great deal of remarks here
    Christmas Movie Month 2012 Commences! | The Viewer’s Commentary.
    I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Is it just me or does it look like like some of these remarks look like they are left by
    brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at
    other social sites, I’d like to follow you.
    Would you make a list of all of your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook
    page or twitter feed?
