Holiday box office cheer

Another lousy holiday movie When will Hollywood get it? Stop churning out formulaic garbage each holiday season. Home Alone was cool; the sequel and everything in the same vein afterward offers diminishing returns. How about Bad Santa 2? Now that'd be good to see.

On behalf of newbies everywhere, yeah, sorry about all of these.

Still, you have to appreciate a wacky comedy that's based on the premise that people who don't celebrate Christmas are horrible monster. Fuck the Jews! Wakka wakka wakka!

Seriously though, why can't Hollywood come out with something unique during the holiday season instead of doing literally the same Tim Allen garbage each year? Instead of dissing my newbie-ness like a bunch of elitists, you could try to make conversation.

Make a good post and you'll get good discussion. Make a crap post and you'll get...

So you want conversation? How's this:
Echo the Dolphin... I remember that game. Good, but hard.

Home Alone was cool;

um, no.

i don't think it's dissing noobz as much as it is attempting to assist noobz through a gentle hazing to understand what makes a good FPP. a call to converse and comment doesn't quite cut it- like y6y6y6 said (before a whole shitstorm went down), think "best of the web" before hitting that post button.

and yes, tim allen is for shit. but so is 75% of h'wood.
