Meat Is Murder: The 10 Best Cannibal Films

This is Indiewire’s list.  Some good stuff there.  I’m writing an ultimate cannibal script at the moment as well…

It’s supposed to be 117 degrees today, July 2nd.  So why not?  I’ll repost the link in December.

It’s a Wonderful Life

(Update: This was on Youtube for free, but Google Corp. decided they can get people to pay “$9.99” now for a public domain film!)

Some films last as classics because they’re old.  Some because they’re mind-blowingly great.  This one is the latter.  Trust Frank Capra.  It’s also free on the web for your viewing enjoyment right now.

Scrooged

Bill Murray does TV executive Ebenezer Scrooge!  Pure Murray, pure Christmas – they would play this film every year at a Christmas Eve party I attended several times.  You may want to consider it too.

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

Well of course, as they often play this on the networks during holidays, and it has fond memories lodged in my childhood brain.  Again, mind-blowingly great and adds an out of left field component to Christmas.

Film Title: Bad Santa.

Bad Santa

She has a Santa Claus fetish, so what can you do?  An irreverent, often nasty tale of dumb crime, midgets and a messed-up little porker of a kid.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Danny Elfman, Halloween kidnaps Christmas, Tim Burton, this is legal lsd for kids.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Okay, for the under 10 crowd, I mean they gotta watch something.

Christmas Vacation

Chevy Chase returns as hapless corporate cog Clark Griswold at the mercy of family, cheap ass bosses and the meanest movie squirrel ever filmed.

Friday After Next

Ice Cube returns with his same shtick, but this time in a Christmas story from the hood.  Funny characters and Santa may be picking up rather than dropping off.

A Christmas Story

“You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!”  Quirky little indie kids tale that made the cut.  Some odd observations of American culture in the 50s, and usually loved by all.

Monty Python’s Meaning of Life

“It’s Christmas in heaven, there’s great stuff on TV, the Sound of Music twice an hour and Jaws one, two and three.”  Only play this if you want to freak the fuck out of everyone in attendance.

Bonus

Trading Places has a hilarious Christmas moment when wasted Dan Ackroyd in a filthy Santa suit pilfers food and booze from a Christmas party.  One of the all-time great drunken roars.
