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.
It's time for another Requested Review, this time from Mendo's favorite site, TV Tropes! After ten years, it seems about time that we actually dealt with Tommy Wiseau's magnum opus. So, here it is: The Room! Mendo-style!
“Well, it at least looks like everyone involved had a lot of fun making this movie.”
“If I’m honest, my favorite performance (and character) in this film was the dog.”
“Finding myself taking the ‘it’s a great visual experience, the story is secondary to that’ stance this time around vaguely disturbs me.”
Another December, another Hobbit movie. Of course, our fantasy lover Sofie had to go give it a watch!
“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.”
Last year, the Horror Guru reviewed the highly controversial killer Santa flick Silent Night, Deadly Night for his second annual Blood Splattered Christmas Special! Get ready for his third Christmas special, coming soon!
Death, despair, and show tunes!
“Catching Fire is a far superior, more adult film than The Hunger Games, as we see the young characters we recognize from the first film grow into the people that could potentially help shape a new world. In particular, we watch as Katniss begins to believe in the power she could wield, and we wonder if this mockingjay has finally spread her wings.”
Solkir reviews a comic book movie brought to us by Disney. He expects no fewer than three talking animals.
“Trust me, this is not a movie where the time simply flies by; you feel every last one of those 219 minutes.”
