Christmas in July 2019: Holiday Film Reviews

Christmas in July 2019: Holiday Film Reviews / J.A. Morris & RigbyMel

1. What is your favorite Saturday Night Live Christmas/Hanukkah/New Year's sketch?

J.A. Morris says: I’m going with “The Killer Trees”, a great sketch that features mutant Christmas trees that go on a killing spree, from SNL’s Season 2 Christmas show.

RigbyMel says: Of late, I’ve been partial to the “Two A-holes in a Live Nativity Scene” sketch from Season 32 starring Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis. “Whaddaya want for Christmas, babe?” “A beach … and a donkey.”

2. Do you most look forward to watching holiday episodes from series? Specials? Movies? Animation? or, all of it?

J.A. Morris says: Specials, especially the “Big Three” classic specials: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, A Charlie Brown Christmas and How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

RigbyMel says: Everything really. We have special favorites that MUST be watched during the holiday season every year, but I enjoy checking out new and “new to me” holiday programming as well.

3. What's your favorite soundtrack from a holiday program? (it doesn't have to have been officially released as an album--just what program features your favorite collection of music?)

J.A. Morris says: I’m going with Vince Guaraldi’s soundtrack for A Charlie Brown Christmas. It doesn’t really feel like the holiday season until I hear this classic Christmas music.

RigbyMel says: I also love the soundtrack to A Charlie Brown Christmas, but will plunk for a more recent soundtrack as well since I seem to quote songs from 2008’s A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All! year round! (Especially bits from “Please Be Patient” and “Little Dealer Boy”!) Also Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas because, of course!

4. What one program are you patiently (or impatiently) waiting for me to review on this blog?

J.A. Morris says: We’re big fans of superheroes, I’d be interested to read your reviews of Christmas episodes of Wonder Woman, Batman:The Animated Series, Ultimate Spider-Man or movies like Iron Man 3 and Batman Returns (which take place during the holiday season).

RigbyMel says: I second J.A. Morris on this! :-)

5. What change in Christmas entertainment have you noticed over the years? Do you like the trend?

J.A. Morris says:
I’ve noticed that cable networks have acknowledged that people are still interested in watching Christmas movies and specials after Christmas Day. For a long time, this was not the case and it’s nice to flip channels on December 27 and stumble on Clark Griswold or a Rankin-Bass special.

RigbyMel says:
I agree with J.A. It’s also nice that recently, more attention has been paid to other holidays and traditions like Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. For example, watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: “My Mom, Greg’s Mom and Josh’s Sweet Dance Moves!” (2015) and Everybody Hates Chris: “Everybody Hates Kwanzaa” (2007) or Jon Stewart’s Hanukkah song in A Colbert Christmas (2008).
