Happy Holidays

Merry Christmahanakkwanzukkah to all of you out there who make up The Film Experience's sexy, smart, diverse, magical, actress-loving, Oscar-obsessed cinephiliac community of readers. The site literally wouldn't still exist without you, whether that's through your blogging-fuel comments, e-mails of gratitude, cup o' joe donations (see right hand sidebar), and just general sharing and retweeting and emailing and the engaged fandom that has increased TFE's profile over the years enough to snag us the occassional ad buy, festival gig, BFCA membership, and audiences with and greetings from various goddesses

Thanks for being there over the years and thanks for still being there. If I had a magical sleigh and flying reindeers I'd drop gifts down each of your chimneys, but I only have this blog to give. More interviews, final Oscar nomination predictions, and Year-End goodies to come in the final two weeks before Oscar Nominations. 

May your holiday week be filled with...

Randy celebrations with regulation hotties...


and dancing...

Renewed faith and life-affirming friendships...

Unforgettably festive surprises...

And, above all else for our purposes... Wonderful wonderful movies.

Now, go open your prezzies and see Les Miz and Django

Can you believe I saw It's a Wonderful Life for the first time ever last night? I'm almost 30. I have to tell you, it is really excellent, and darker than a lot of people make it out to be. Merry Christmas, everyone! (National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is still my all-time fave -- "We'll have the hap-hap-happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby danced with Danny fuckin' Kaye!"

Joe -- that's so sweet. Although sometimes I over-want so....

Tim -- we all have our blind spots. I still have never seen ______________

I'd much rather be seeing Django or Les Mis however my family is opting to see Parental Guidance instead... Wish me luck!

All I want is conformation that I made your naughty list.

December 25, 2012 | Unregistered Commenter3rtful

Parental Guidance? REALLY?!?!?

December 25, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSean

Omg, Tim, my mom loves it's a wonderful life (I bought her the collector's edition DVD this year) and she loves to watch every Christmas season, and I've never liked it because it's so depressing!

Anywho, I got a bunch of Buffy stuff so I'm doing good.

And now my mom and I are going to eat at cracker barrel and see les mis!

Merry christmas to all!

@Sean - Really. I have a distant cousin who wrote the screenplay so we all went to support him. It actually wasn't horrible even though I was the youngest person in the movie theater by about thirty years. There is a scene where Billy Crystal and Bette Midler sing a duet and it almost makes up for how awful Marisa Tomei is the rest of the movie. Almost. Thanks for the sympathy.
