And so it begins...

Well I was just flipping through channels and what do I see on TBS Superstation? The animated How the Grinch Stole Christmas! I really can't believe it was on this early!



So, I expect more Holiday movies to be coming very soon! So exciting!

Well, you gotta figure that Wal Mart and the other retailers are into high gear, and there are NOT that many more weekends until the big day. So after a weekend of being in the shoppers mosh pit, you want to come home and decompress and see something that will put you back in the right mood.

What better then THE GRINCH?

Are there any other stars OTHER then Boris Karloff who have gone from Halloween to Christmas as well??

Karloff's amazing. He literally was in almost all of the horror/ scifi movies of his era therefore he deserves the right to be in a Christmas film, or any other film for that matter! But what a great relation between the shopping and the Grinch! Sure is tru, isn't it! :)

the man is positive proof that nice guys can finish first.

Ironic: at halloween, I mentioned his name and drew a big blank. so I said:"Voice of the Grinch and narrator of the show."

The person didn't even have to think twice;"..ohhh...."

Tonight, it continues...TBS has:

HOME ALONE, GRINCH, WIZARD OF OZ...

Yeah I just finished watching Home Alone on TBS with my son. I have to say I have been watching holiday stuff all weekend! Last night I stayed up real late and watched The Ref, boy I forgot how funny that one is! I loved the part when Kevin Spacey freaks and starts hitting the Christmas tree saying "Excuse me, excuse me, excuse me, excuse em"...oh there is a lot a laughs in that one for me.... I can't help myself... :lol:

GreenElf...The Ref is one of my FAVES!!! Nobody else I know likes that movie, but I think it is ABSOLUTELY hilarious. My favorite part is when they are all sitting around the table with the candle wreaths on their heads. I'm gonna go rent it tomorrow.... Dennis Leary is one of my all time fave comedians!

Really they have started to shwo christmas flicks? I should probably check my tv guide more often, I havnt noticed any of them as of late, id love to see the richy rich christmas special I absolutely love it, or how much I can remember of it, they havnt aired it in awhile.



Nobody can ever give me a straight answer when I ask this.

Wout a nightmare before christmas fall under halloween movie or christmas movie. Im convinced its a christmass movie but all of my freinds say its more of a halloween film.

The confusion was deliberate.

Its' the way Tim Burton wanted it.

See, he grew up in Southern California, and after the summer was over, there was very little change between the seasons..and what he was thinking was that there is this strange time between the two holidays, that is sort of a tiwlight zone of holidays....that was the feeling he was going for..a cross between the two, caught in the middle...
