Review: Black Christmas

The merits of remaking a movie are often called into question immediately by the masses. Be it staunch defenders of the source material, weary analysts of Hollywood's "pool" of talent, or moviegoers just sick and tired of...garbage, it's us...

BBC depicts A Christmas Carol as horror in new trailer

My father is a mega-fan of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Consequently, I grew up watching multiple adaptations of it every year at Christmastime. This tradition has held for me even as I've moved out of my parents' home and into my a...

The Grinch 2000 is the worst Christmas movie I've ever seen

I hate it when my well thought out plans get screwed up.  Originally, this piece was going to be a feature about all of the various big screen and small screen adaptations of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, one of my favorite Christmas...

Review: Anna and the Apocalypse

I don't think I will ever be able to explain how Anna and the Apocalypse exists. Someone had to have woken up one day and decided "Gee, you know what the world needs? A musical about the zombie apocalypse set during Christmas!" Just by...

Unraveling the Christmas Cinematic Universe

There is a house down the street from me that looks like the seasonal section at K-Mart ejaculated over its front yard. There is Santa, Mrs. Claus, Rudolph, Frosty, some gingerbread men, birds, presents, a Shrek for some goddamn reason; all...

Bad Moms Christmas red band trailer has hos 'n' balls

Bad Moms Christmas made my must-see list for the Flixist annual fall movie preview (see the rest of our picks here) and several days later it conveniently dropped a red band trailer. Sorry internet, but there are no Mila Kunis nude sce...

Bad Moms Christmas has a trailer involving moms at Christmas

Bad Moms was probably one of the biggest surprises of my movie watching career. From what looked like a low-budget cash in on raunchy, female-led comedies came a smart, and funny story that played with movie gender tropes in clever way...

 
 
 
 
 
Why Him? Review photo

Review: Why Him?

Sometimes questions shouldn't be begged in the titles of pieces lacking the substance to back up or even fully answer the suggested question. Why Him? Falls victim to this trope. Why him? Why me? Why see this movie?

Review: Office Christmas Party

The grand holiday tradition happens on a yearly basis. You gather your friends and loved ones. You pop open a bottle of wine. You silence your phone, sit back, and hope that this year’s Christmas comedy is as good as the last. Let&rsq...

This Red Band trailer for Bad Santa 2 is pretty bad

I wasn't a fan of Bad Santa all those years ago, and to this day I still don't understand the appeal. It grew such a cult following that a sequel has been in the works for years, but despite efforts to stop it, Bad Santa 2 is a thing.&...

Review: The Night Before

When Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg produce a film, you pretty much know what you're going to get. As the duo have made their way through the romantic comedy, high school buddy film, stoner comedy, old Hollywood existential, superhero story, ...

First trailer for Christmas horror film Krampus

I'm not sure what the reason is, but we're suddenly getting a whole lot of Krampus films. There's Kevin Smith's Krampus project, a few direct to VOD films, that one episode of American Dad two seasons ago, and now we've got Krampus from Tri...

Sofia Coppola is doing a Christmas Special? Yes she is. With Bill Murray, no less. Announced in the fall of 2014, the project went radio silent for quite awhile, but today a curious cast has been revealed. George Clooney, Miley Cyrus, Amy P...

Trailer for Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever exists

Lifetime movies sure have gone downhill. Let's hope this doesn't involve the domestic, sexual, alcoholic abuse normally found on the station that (not) surprisingly doesn't use the "Television for Women" mantra as much as it used to. ...

First teaser for Jingle All the Way 2

You know how Larry the Cable Guy rolls his eyes at the end of the teaser? That's pretty much how I'm feeling right now. Thank Jebus it's only thirty seconds long...and direct to DVD. At least it's easier to avoid that way. Produced by WWE ...
