It's Christmas! Meaning, it's time to review the best Christmas special ever! ...At least, if you ask Sofie.
The Unusual Suspect reviews Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, starring Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, and Tim Curry!
The sequel to the intentionally bad Jack Frost has lots of gore and lots of laughs.
My Little Pony is a thing now, so why not talk about a cartoon based on another popular girls' toy from back in the day: Barbie! Here she is in her very first feature-length movie, Barbie in the Nutcracker, which as you might have guessed is also a Christmas movie.
Who would've thought there'd be another movie based on the famous Christmas jingle "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer?" Well... Joey sure didn't, until he saw this movie. Watch as he finds out if it takes a steaming reindeer dump on the legacy of one of his favorite holiday specials.

“For those of us who have already seen LOTR, this is a nice look back at those films, and for those completely new to the trilogy, The Hobbit is a an exciting film that stands as a worthwhile story its own right.”
'Tis the season for love, actually, with Hugh Grant as Prime Minister, more than one lobster present at the birth of Jesus Christ, and innumerable subplots. Or at least, the three subplots Ursa thinks are most interesting.
Solkir makes a terrible mistake by watching the 1970s TV movie adaptation of the Marvel character Doctor Strange, starring Peter Hooten as Dr. Stephen Strange and Jessica Walter as Morgan Le Fey.
“A lot of the dialogue seemed to be entirely forced, as if the cast was stuck in class and the teacher was making them read aloud.”
'Tis the season for crappy holiday cartoons on the Cartoon Palooza, starting with the sequel to the Fairly OddParents movie Grow Up Timmy Turner!.
“And much like an amnesiac, you’ll embark on an adventure that’s all too familiar, and by the end you’ll have forgotten it all anyway.”
