    Festicember 2020 Entry #34!

    Some days you watch a fun Will Ferrell comedy, some days you watch Kirk Cameron lie to you about Christmas for not even feature length.

    Maybe that's a little harsh. In fact, I'm slightly hesitant to rip this to pieces only because it almost feels genuine - almost. Kirk Cameron actually seems invested and passionate, which makes him engaging and honestly kind of likable to watch. As he was listening to the other guy in the…

    Festicember 2020 Entry #33!

    It almost feels like heresy to say "I haven't seen 'Elf'", like I'll be publicly stoned with candy corn until I remedy my transgressions. Well, now I have, and I can say it's pretty good.

Unfortunately, it's laden with enough whorish product placement, awful toilet humor, in-your-face obnoxiousness, and excessive mean-spiritedness…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I've been watching each "Star Wars" movie for what is basically the first time, and I'm absolutely over the moon that I finished the original trilogy and now get to watch the prequels which, if this is anything to go by, are absolutely stellar.

    Explaining why this movie is so bad it would be news to precisely 0 people. The acting is absolutely terrible across the board (which, with talented actors like this, indicates more of a problem with the…
