Confirmed Kills

Before we watched quaint, rather sexist Xmas movies, we took in some Iliza tonight.

Eeew, Christmas movies. I few years back, while tending a sick relative right before Christmas I was exposed to that most horrific genera of them, the "Lifetime" "Hallmark Channel" school of made-for-TV Christmas movies. They were so bad that the patient couldn't stand them.

I have never loved Christmas as much as when I unplugged from American Christmas, including the movies. They make me want to puke up eggnog that I didn't want to go down to start with.

I have a collection of Xmas movies. Well, more movies set at Xmas, like "The Thin Man" and "Trading Places" and "Mixed Nuts." I collect 'em just because of the setting of the story. I do have some of the more traditional fare, but that's not as interesting in this context.

As for those "rather sexist Xmas movies" they should have resigned. Or need to resign. I'm not sure which tense applies. But we really can't tolerate them in today's atmosphere of intolerance for all things we no longer tolerate.

Probably should just burn the libraries, too. The bonfire of the vanities seems more and more sensible again, doesn't it?

"Batman Returns," also set at Xmas!

How could I forget that.....?

We love Die Hard, Trading Places, Scrooged, Bad Santa...and more traditional choices. Because otherwise my clinical depression gets weighed down by SAD, and I burn everything to the ground.

Actually, there is a Christmas episode of a TV show that I love, The Gift Of The Wheelman episode of Due South. Aside from that, meh! when not eeeew! Meet Me In St. Louis, the Christmas part of it makes me want to shoot the composer.
