Ho ho ho! Jim and A.Ron here to Live Watch a Christmas… Classic? Well, it’s Paul Giamatti as Santa Claus, which fair enough, and Vince Vaughn as his immortal older brother who is a low stakes hustler in Chicago. We’ve never seen this movie before, but it’s a pretty good time with a high enough BAC. Merry Giamatti Christmas! Enjoy!
Paul Rudd and Paul Giamatti star in “All is Bright”, a very good Christmas film about ex-cons trying to go legit by hauling Christmas trees from Canada and selling them to the fine folks of New York City. It’s funny, but way darker than you’re probably expecting, and threads a bitter sweet needle of poignancy that really nails the feeling of those Christmas seasons where things might not be as merry and bright as you might wish. All the more reason to hang our lights up high.
I gotta say, Jim and I were slightly unprepared for the Jelly this particular Giamatti Christmas was bringing. We were expecting a madcap romp, and what we got was a darker, bleaker, sort of Hard Candy Christmas. But we’re here, armed with the finest of Scotches, to make sure things stay Jolly. Enjoy!
In the past 6 weeks, we’ve learned more about Nicolas Cage than we ever thought we would, or ever really cared to. So for the final week of season 1 of Super Serious Film Fest we’ve decided to do a retrospective on the whole process. We talk about our favorite moments from Season of the Cage as well as the most interesting things we learned about the man himself, Nicolas Cage.
The final livewatch of the Season of the Cage is in the books and it’s, well… completely mediocre. Like the movie and starring actors it’s based on, there’s absolutely nothing worth seeing here. Ok, so maybe we spice it up a bit with a few jokes but can that really save a complete pancake of a movie?
Watching an unhinged Nicolas Cage performance for the first time is an experience that simply can’t be matched. There were enormous expectations for Vampire’s Kiss, and I’m happy to say they were met. Sync up your copy of the movie with ours and join us on this magical journey.
