Scrooged (1988)

‘Tis the season for Christmas movies, so here’s a short and sweet one: TheTimMan and I discuss the 1988 Bill Murray take on A Christmas Carol, Scrooged.

One of us loves it, one of us hates it, and did my wife like it?

Next week, be on the lookout for the long-awaited review of The Last Jedi.

Merry Christmas!

Podcast Episode 8 – Best Christmas Movies

‘Tis the season to watch the movies!

Even though it’s still over two weeks away, we are here to prepare you for Christmas.  On this hard-hitting, extra-long, bonanza blowout episode of the podcast, we canvass our favorite Christmas movies.  TheTimMan and I propose four of our own picks and finally agree on the best Christmas movie of all time.  What makes a film a “Christmas movie” anyway?  Is It’s a Wonderful Life theologically problematic, or am I just jaded and cynical?  Are your favorite Christmas movies just the movies you watched as an adolescent?  What’s the best version of the Christmas Carol?  What does my wife think about all this?

Lots of banter and good viewing/listening suggestions for the season.  Enjoy!
