Out of the Blue

Merry Christmas to all who are celebrating. It's a wet Christmas around here, rather than a white one, as it's been raining all day. This is unfortunate, since we picked up a steak to grill for the occasion, so I'll have to see if there's a break in the weather that will permit me to raise the flag in Manstovia. We also have a virtual gathering later with family and friends. This is not the same as getting together in person, but it will permit seeing a lot of people who wouldn't necessarily make the trip, so there's a bright side to it as well. We may not get the chance to experience another of our holiday traditions, as Bad Santa is no longer offered on Amazon Prime. I actually ordered the disc to prevent this tragedy from reoccurring, so we'll have to decide if we also want to spring for a rental today. It's a little redundant, but Christmas won't seem the same without Billy Bob Thornton spewing invectives and lettuce. Here's hoping the holiday finds you safe and well, and that you are finding a way to accommodate your traditions under the circumstances.

I've never even been tempted to watch "Bad Santa", just not my type of humor/film.

The concept for the film came from the Coen Brothers, and although they did not write/direct, they were heavily involved in its production. If you enjoy, e.g. The Big Lebowski, you'll enjoy Bad Santa.

Best Christmas movie? Can I pick "Die Hard"? If not, it is a dead heat between "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Ben-Hur" (the 1959 version). And I'd like to claim "lack of bias points" on the basis of selecting Ben-Hur despite the fact I am an atheist.

Wouldn't Ben-Hur be an Easter movie?
