1. Die Hard – Ho Ho Ho, now I have a machine gun!
(NSFW video… BUT AWESOME.)
For those of you just tuning in, here’s the complete list from my blog and Tom Croom’s blog.:
1. Die Hard
2. Lethal Weapon
3. Die Hard 2
4. A Muppet Family Christmas
5. Holiday Inn
6. Mickey’s Christmas Carol
8. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
9. The Nightmare Before Christmas
3. Die Hard 2 – “Just once, I’d like a normal Christmas!”
5. Holiday Inn – Fred Astaire, Bing Crosby, the first appearance of “White Christmas” and the start of the Holiday Inn chain. Having recently been on a permanent stay in a Holiday Inn Express, Joey thinks it’s damn smart!
Joey Snackpants and Tom Croom have decided to bring you some holiday cheer by counting down their favorite holiday movies… Merry Christmas, and we apologize in advance for the imminent mental anguish.
Note the complete lack of ANY mention of “Disney” in the preview.
Today, I was able to get up early, take care of some Christmas shopping and watch three shows I have been waaaaay behind on. G.I. Joe: Renegades, Young Justice and Transformers: Prime. Tom has already talked Prime, and has called me about it multiple times. So as an overview….
G.I. Joe: Renegades – The animated version of the A-Team. I love the A-Team (Including the recent Movie). I love G.I. Joe. I should love this, but right now I am sitting on ‘good’ but willing to watch more episodes.
Young Justice – I am a HUGE fan of Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond (the weakest of the set), Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. I LOATHED Teen Titans and The Batman. I thought Batman: The Brave and the Bold was marginal, with a few really good episodes. Lastly, I have been a fan of the direct to video releases, especially the shorts that were the ‘added bonus’ on each. So I was truly expecting to not enjoy Young Justice at all. I was wrong. I want to see more.
Transformers: Prime – Complete crap. It took all my willpower to sit through the first episode. Did I mention it was crap? This might be as bad as Beast Wars… might.
That’s all the comments I have time for now… later I’ll get into why I enjoy Young Justice. Though I have a feeling my complete dislike for Transformers: Prime will need to wait for the next DARE! The Transformers Panel Ultimate.
While Mr. Croom may be excited… I find that I lost even more brain cells watching this ‘trailer’. Oi…
Yes… Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg making America dumber… One Transformer movie at a time.
