Happy holidays to all casual movie goers, film lovers, and cinephiles! For the second year in a row, You Hate Movies is bringing a grand tradition from out of our homes and into your yuletide movie room: The 33 Days of Christmas Movies!
Beginning Monday, Nov 21, our resident hosts will be enjoying a Christmas movie every night leading up to Dec 25. Visit our official 2016 Calendar, with over 30 heartwarming holiday flicks, sidesplitting seasonal comedies, nostalgic noel animated shorts, frightfully festive horror pictures, and wonderfully wintery animated shorts.
Watch along with us each night, or edit our list to accommodate your own traditional favorites. In keeping with the spirit of the 33 Days of Christmas movies, tweet out each movie title along with your personal rating of up to 5 based on trivia from the movie in question. Some classic examples include:
#33DaysOfChristmasMovies: "A Christmas Story." I give it 5 out of 5 tapestries of obscenity still hanging in space over Lake Michigan. –@tylerhanns
#33DaysOfChristmasMovies: "The Polar Express." I give it 5 out of 5 dumb kids who see ghost hobos, elves, & Santa, and remain skeptical. –@josh_dies
#33DaysOfChristmasMovies: "Elf." I give it 3 out of 5 declawed kittens for Connie. –@sarahhanns
#33DaysOfChristmasMovies: "Home Alone." I give it 5 out of 5 American Dental Association approved toothbrushes. –@theericlemiere
Hashtag each post #33DaysOfChristmasMovies so we can share our favorites.
So deck the halls, fill your mug with hot cocoa, and settle in for a season of feliz film navidad, from Scott Calvin to Scut Farkus, while the Grinch steals Christmas and Ernest saves it.
