The Adventure of the Wrong Santa Claus (1914)
In 1914, Thomas Edison didn’t have color film. He didn’t have sound. He didn’t have talent. He didn’t have any understanding of even the most basic filmmaking techniques. What he did have was the Christmas spirit. It was not enough.Full House “The House Meets the Mouse (Part II)”
“How do I know this will be an amazing episode? Because dude, they don’t even need to explain what happened in Part I! No ‘Previously On’, no nothing. Why? Because they assume—and rightly so—that Part I’s awesomeness has by now simply integrated itself into your DNA and become a part of your basic humanity. That Part I was so intense, you already intuitively know what it was about, even if you can’t consciously remember much of anything (I think Michelle was kidnapped by ninjas?). That’s how awesome this episode will be.”Hooves of Fire (1999)

“Reno gets pissed, and suggests a round of Russian Roulette, and as luck would have it, Sam has a .44 in his car. Yep, I’d say they’re in Texas alright.”Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too (1991)
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!Doctor Who (1996)
“So, basically, in the first minute of the movie we’ve managed to see seven rather stupid mistakes that are guaranteed to annoy most fans of the original series. Well done! It’s seldom a movie manages to have that many problems in such a short span of time. That’s one stupid mistake about every eight seconds! I am impressed.”
