Ep. 34: The Muppet Christmas Carol

Movie-MCC-FinaleFor this holiday season, in the spirit of togetherness, Nate and Ryan discuss The Muppet Christmas Carol.  Last year’s Christmas episode turned out to be one of their bitterest episodes yet.  In an effort to undo the negativity of that episode, Nate and Ryan discuss a movie they agree is one of the best Christmas movies around.  While many people believe there are too many adaptations of the Charles Dickens classic, Nate and Ryan talk about why this adaptation is necessary and lasting.

What do you think of The Muppet Christmas Carol? Where does it rank among holiday movies for you?  What do you look for in a holiday movie?

Ep. 18: A Christmas Story

ralphie-a-christmas-story-imageNate and Ryan have it out over 1983’s beloved A Christmas Story just in time for the most wonderful time of the year: Christmas movie season. This is one of their earliest film fights, and time has done little to calm the storm.  As with any good blizzard, it’s best to just put another log on the fire, cuddle up, and watch the madness from the safety of your home.

What are your thoughts on A Christmas Story? Is Ryan too sensitive?  Or do you agree with him, but you’ve been afraid to admit it for fear of the backlash?  Is Nate right to join in singing the praises of this holiday classic?  What place does this movie (or any other Christmas movie) have in your annual traditions?
