It’s Movie Fighters time, friends, and this week we’ve got a present for you from me and Matt! Not only do we have our second Christmas selection, but all of our holiday specials are in one convenient bundle for only four bucks! If you haven’t already snagged ’em, you can grab both Halloween episodes and both Christmas episodes, and you’re set for any holiday travel you may be doing — assuming that said travel lasts for about six hours or less.
You may also notice that there are no Thanksgiving episodes involved, and that is because Thanksgiving is a straight up garbage holiday. But you do get…
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters:Â Who knew that a movie about Hawkeye having magic diabetes could be so fun? We certainly weren’t expecting it.
Monster Squad: Our most requested “horror” movie offering is slightly more flawed than you might remember it, if only for its ludicrous proposition that Dracula could be felled by mere children.
Santa Claus: The Movie: From the producers of Superman, Superman II and, uh, Supergirl comes an origin story for Santa that suddenly turns into a movie about an elf who makes magic candy and bad puns. We have never been this disappointed before.
Santa’s Slay: By listener request, we take on this holiday farce starring Bill Goldberg as a murderous Santa Claus who, as the son of Satan, goes on a vengeful rampage through Canada on Christmas Day 2005. This is, believe it or not, maybe the best movie we have done on the show.
And as an added bonus…
Rambo: The Force of Freedom: When S.A.V.A.G.E. Stole Santa: We watch the Christmas episode of the ’80s cartoon for kids based on the Rambo movies, which I will remind you are about a traumatized Vietnam veteran just murdering people for hours. It is so confusing that talk about it for ever (IE about an hour).
The bonus episode is streaming for free, but you get it as part of the album. Check it out, and remember, you can give these things as gifts. Perfect for someone who hates movies and wants their biases confirmed.
