Film Fools Christmas Death Match: A Christmas Story vs It’s a Wonderful Life
Show Notes

This week we jump into the holiday spirit by conducting a Christmas movie death match between “A Christmas Story” and “It’s a Wonderful Life”. But first Josh talks about his Elf on a Shelf journey, a photo shoot, and being stoked about the Matrix revival. Then Uncle Greg discusses his new goals and we state the episode’s goal of finding out “What makes a GREAT Christmas movie?” (00:38). We discuss what separates a “great” Christmas movie from just a good one, and ponder what the “job” of a Christmas movie is (23:33). The three rounds of the death match are “What are the themes”, “What are the messages”, and “How did the movie make you feel?” (41:42). Then the judges render their decision (1:20:32). We wrap up with out “Top 5 Christmas Entertainments of All Time” and our quote of the week (1:22:27).
