    Ah, the Grump* Old Men movies, part of that run of enforced comedy viewing back when I was married. They’re not terrible, and occasionally they’re quite funny, but I couldn’t name a specific bit from either one of them after all these years.

    Jingle All The Way: Don’t do it. Just, no. It’s about as formulaic a “holiday” “comedy” as you could ever “hope” to “get to” see.

    Gamera is really neat! Gamera’s made of turtle meat! We all love you, Gameraaaa!
