Yep! It’s the holiday season again! Everybody is getting that warm and fuzzy feeling in their gut, helping them to fight off the cold weather outside! Dreamy Christmas music is all over the radio, peopleare wearing godawful sweaters full of snowflakes and bells and mistletoe leaves. Hehehe! But we remain jolly because the season demands it. So be it.

However, as our favorite TV shows and binge-worthy cable series wind down and come to an end for a lengthy hiatus…we often become drowned in Christmas movies, year after year, that give us that good ol’ nostalgic feeling of Christmases past…and that’s never a bad thing!

But, come on…how many times can we really watch “It’s A Wonderful Life”? We’ve all seen 100 different versions of “A Christmas Carol”, we’ve seen ‘Rudolph’ and ‘Frosty’ and ‘Charlie Brown’ and ‘Elf’ and “The Nightmare Before Christmas” to the point of knowing every line of dialogue by heart. Hehehe, and they are classics! I won’t argue that! But, at this point, even ‘loosely’ Christmas themed classics like “Gremlins” and “Die Hard” have been done to death. And with nothing else on the idiot box…I thought I might offer a few suggestions this year for movies you might have missed!

They’re not all guaranteed to give you the warm fuzzies, hehehe…as I tend to be a pretty dark individual! Even on Christmas! But if you’re looking to find a few hidden gems with a holiday theme to them that isn’t all ‘mushy wushy’ Hallmark Channel stuff, all while you’re avoiding the frigid mess outside…then add a few of these movies to your must-see list!

I have to admit, hehehe…I had never heard of the Krampus legend until an animated episode of ‘Family Guy’! Turns out…that was a real thing. Santa Claus has an evil countepart out there for bad kids who fell off of the ‘nice’ list! And while this movie has a decent amount of comedy in it…make no mistake…this is a horror movie! So ‘buyer beware’ when giving this one a shot!

Now, if you’re looking for some heartwarming Christmas fun…”Polar Express” is the way to go! I really LOVED this movie! More than I ever expected to, in fact. I think Tom Hanks plays several different characters in this, from the train conductor, to the little boy, to a random hobo…with the animation mirroring himself at different ages, it’s really something to see. But this movie has laughs and adventure and magic and wonder…and the FEELS! Omigod, the feels! Hehehe! If you’ve ever been curious about this one, but you’ve been putting it off…I suggest grabbing some hot chocolate and giving this one the attention it deserves!

Hehehe! You know…I almost want to tell you to NOT watch this trailer, as this movie will be SO much more fun if you don’t! But…even after watching it, this movie is not what you think it’s going to be, and that’s all I’ll say about that! One of my FAVORITE new Christmas movies of all time! LOL! Very dark humor, but a thriller/horror at heart, this movie will continue to surprise you again and again…until the credits roll! DON’T miss this one! It might end up being one of your new favorites too!
Plus…I mean…Levi Miller is in it. ::Blush:: Always a plus in my book! XD

This movie never fails to crack me up! It’s just like…”Oh geez! He’s seriously gonna KILL these people!” Hahaha! No, Comsie hasn’t turned into a total psychopath. This movie is just plain funny! When a career thief (Played brilliantly by Dennis Leary) gets tuck in a small suburb after trying to pull off an unsuccessful robbery, he decides to kidnap a couple and hold the hostage until the local police clear the roadblocks, preventing him from his grand escape. However, the couple he’s chosen are about as dysfunctional as a couple can get without, literally, killing each other. Petty arguments, shouting matches, and a bunch of fun times occur from there. But, despite it all…this movie has some serious heart to it too. It’s not just goofy for the sake of being goofy. Check it out! It’ll make ya feel good!

Is it weird that I think ‘Jack Frost’ is really hot? Hehehe, i mean…he’s just an animated character, right? Yikes! I need to get out more! ANYWAY…”Rise Of The Guardians” is another awesome movie to watch during the holidays! Lots of fun and humorous moments, but also a ton of action! More than I thought there would be. And with Jude Law voicing the main villain, you can’t go wrong. If this is one of the ones you haven’t seen or even heard of…now’s the time to give it a watch! You won’t be disappointed!

Before Ryan Reynolds was “Deadpool”, he was…well…he was still Deadpool! LOL! Which is why he’s SO damn awesome as Deadpool!!! But ‘Just Friends’ is a hilarious movie about holding on to that high school crush of yours, even though they had permanently put you in the ‘friend zone’, and not knowing how to get around that. Years pass, and he comes back to town…rich and beautiful and successful…but still unable to get over the feelings he had for the girl he once loved more than anything. And i always got a kick out of this one too. So, if you ever wanted to see ‘Deadpool’ in a romantic comedy…then this one is for you!

OH YEAH! You may be big fans of the “Bourne Identity” series…but Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson paved the way! Hehehe! She is a total BADASS in this movie! A government assassin with amnesia who begins to remember her skills as her enemies close in on her? ALWAYS makes for a great action flick! No warm cookies and milk with this flick!

::Giggles:: What if Santa wasn’t a jolly old soul, after all! What if he was just a psychotic asshole, and you found him lodged in a block of ice somewhere in a far off land? Well, “Rare Export” answers that question for you! It’s not a big cinematic experience, but you’re going to be surprised at how much you enjoy this movie! Don’t let this one pass you by! Be sure to watch with friends!
