And stay tuned after the review for a reading of the classic holiday poem “‘Twas the Flick Before Christmas”!
It’s now Day Four of the Blockbuster Chick’s 5 Days of Christmas Specials. Only one more to go after this! For this Christmas Eve special, sit back, relax, and get cozy with a random cat to enjoy A Garfield Christmas!
This meta-mashup movie stars Josh Hutcherson and Dane Cook in a high school comedy/drama that morphs into a slasher movie, which them morphs into a sci-fi story involving body switching, time travel, and the end of the world. Sure, given the time of year, there are other movies more appropriate for Phil’s Time Travel Month, but no way and no how is he reviewing any movie version of A Christmas Carol.
‘Ello and welcome to Day Three of Blockbuster Chick’s 5 Days of Christmas Specials! Today’s review is of a British classic, a stop-motion animated special starring
Rudolph’s lazy, overweight son Robbie the Reindeer: Hooves of Fire!
Remember Epic Beard Man? Well, it turns out they made a movie about him. That’s right, somebody’s cell phone video of two guys fighting on a bus has been made into a movie… starring Danny Trejo. No, really.

The Blockbuster Chick is taking part in another Red Ribbon Reviewers Month by looking at Christmas specials! She’s starting things off with a look at the Disney classic Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too! Enjoy!
It’s the never before seen Friday Night Fright Flicks pilot, where Horror Guru and Count Jackula run into some trouble while going to see ParaNorman. It’s not really a review, so feel free to discuss the movie ParaNorman in the comments, or hell, anything else you feel like talking about.
As the Fear Fan gets ready for the first episode of Terror Obscura Season 2, he takes a moment to review Tied in Blood, a special fan request. The result? Ghost blowies, A-Team references, and incredibly worrying séance phrases.
The Slob continues his M. Night Before Christmas review spectacular with his look at 2010’s The Last Airbender!
Together, the two luchadores battle the Mexican Dracula, vampire women, the Wolfman, a cyclops, the Mummy, and the Frankenstein monster. It’s cheesy, ridiculous fun. In other words, a Santo film.
We Wish You a Turtle Christmas is the purest combination of both terrible and awesome. A direct-to-video holiday special where the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sing Christmas songs about pizza and… other things, it’s one of the greatest Christmas specials ever.
Cheapus gets a set of DVDs for Christmas, but it turns out they contain four disembodied souls trapped between worlds by the sinister Chris Mass, and they can only be freed by reviewing the Christmas-themed movies contained within: Scrooged, Gremlins, Fred Claus, and Mixed Nuts!
How about we forget about this crap, and get going with a Danny Phantom movie? The made-for-TV A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner! (a live action update of The Fairly OddParents) stars Drake Bell (AKA the guy who killed Spider-Man) as a boy who refuses to grow up in order to keep his fairy godparents.

It’s that time of year, so Johnny reviews a holiday classic: The Human Centipede (First Sequence), the world’s most infamous torture scat porn. It’s ass-blastingly shit-tacular!
Phil’s special Time Travel Month continues with The Butterfly Effect! Ashton Kutcher has the hereditary power to travel back in time, which he uses to try to fix things, but instead he just screws up the present more and more. Unfortunately, this movie doesn’t understand how time travel works, or even the fundamental concept behind its own title.
