And finally, listen to a rant-off between Tom Cruise‘s recent Mission: Impossible 7 blow-up and Christian Bale‘s infamous tirade from the set of Terminator Salvation. Read More »

A Christmas Story Honest Trailer

A Christmas Story has been playing on television so much every holiday season that even people who don’t love the movie probably have it memorized. From the slow-motion “Oh, fuuuuudge!” to the triple dog dare, this movie is chock full of quotable lines. But that has the Honest Trailer begging the question whether this holiday staple is actually a good movie or if we just like it because we know it by heart. Read More »

(Welcome to DTV Descent, a series that explores the weird and wild world of direct-to-video sequels to theatrically released movies. In this edition, we chug some leftover eggnog while unwrapping the sequel to the best and most quotable Christmas movie of all time!)

We’re in the back half of December, and I’m once again visiting DTV sequels to popular Christmas movie favorites. Last time I apparently committed multiple sacrileges by calling out Jingle All the Way‘s mediocrity, suggesting the Larry the Cable Guy-led sequel does a better job with the heart, and then slamming the loud and unfunny National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. (Opinions!) I’m hoping to be a bit less controversial this week by watching the follow-up to 1983’s beloved holiday masterpiece, Bob Clark’s A Christmas Story.

The film got an official sequel in 1994’s It Runs In the Family, and while it features an all-new cast both Clark and writer/creator Jean Shepherd returned. It’s not great, but hey, continuity! 2012’s A Christmas Story 2 doesn’t even have that going for it, though, as new faces fill every role both on and off camera. Is that a bad sign? Probably, but it’s never too late to wish for a Christmas miracle.
