Your Christmas Viewing is Settled

"There are three reasons to watch a Christmas film. [...] I have the perfect culmination to all three of those scenarios, and it not only involves a shit-ton of novelty songs, but also Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. So here's the truest thing I'll ever tell you: Holiday Inn is the Classic Hollywood Christmas Movie to rule them all, and the $2.99 you'll spend renting it on iTunes is a third of what you'd spend on a glass of wine at a respectable establishment. (That is how I judge expenses: that sparkly Christmas dress costs five G.O.W [glasses of wine]; a ticket to see The Fassbender in the theater costs two.)" [The Hairpin]

    I already own a copy of Bad Santa, so, what's the use of renting a Christmas movie?

  • Andrew says:

    I think we can all agree that if you're only going to watch one Christmas movie, then it should definitely be Gremlins.
    With Albert Finney's Scrooge in second place.

    And don't forget that one super racist blackface song about Abraham Lincoln that is totally the steaming turd in this otherwise delightful stocking.

  • Ah, yes. For the record, The Hairpin's piece does address that. Nevertheless, it bears recommending!
