Best Santa Claus Movies of All Time

Who doesn't love Santa Claus? This jolly, rotund individual with the big white beard is loved and revered by all. In fact, he is the ultimate uniter. I defy you to tell me any religion that doesn't at least smile somewhat (regardless of how they feel about Christmas) when they see this iconic being. Santa Claus has been portrayed by people of all walks of life. Some looking like the Jolly Ole Saint Nick we see in Norman Rockwell paintings, and other's looking like Don Knotts. Santa is a symbol and that symbol has found no better home (no pun intended) than on the silver screen.

For years this character has been portrayed in movies. He has appeared in cameos and starring roles. In fact, it seems that just adding Santa Claus (and the holiday season) to a film can make it have a longer life. People love nostalgia. They

Why do we repeatedly watch trashy films during the festive season?

George Chrysostomou on Christmas viewing habits…

It feels like finally, the Christmas period has rolled around and the collection of assorted chocolate, wine and badly wrapped presents have begun to collect ready for December 25th. And with this season comes the one thing that most people have in common regardless of your religion, traditions or where you live. I am of course talking about the festive film, so called because of its reliance on Christmas comedy, family feuds or Santa in one form or another.

No matter what you do during the month of December, one certainty is that you will turn on the TV to watch a film that you know, deep down, isn’t very good. Yet, this is the fifteenth year you have watched it so why turn back now? (it would have been sixteen in a row except for that year you had to go to the in-laws…

Justice League Failure Causes a Major Shake-Up at DC Films

Warner Bros. is in the middle of reconfiguring the Dceu after the less than stellar performance of Justice League at the box office, according to a new report from Variety. The report also goes on to say that it's inevitable that Ben Affleck will be leaving Matt Reeves' The Batman and that the director has already been talking to new actors to take over the role, which has been previously reported. There had been rumors before that Warner Bros. was aiming for Justice League to be a homerun and if it wasn't, restructuring would occur to make up for Batman v Superman.

Variety reports that Jon Berg will leave his post as the head of the DC Films division. Berg will apparently become a production partner with Roy Lee, the producer of It and The Lego Movie and Warner Bros. is reportedly currently looking for a replacement for Berg.

DC Films To Undergo Major Shake-Up In Light Of Justice League Failure

The fallout from Justice League is still being felt at Warner Bros.

In fact, if Variety’s latest scoop is any indication, the studio is about to shake things up at the executive level in the hope of course-correcting its DC Extended Universe. The restructuring effort has allegedly been earmarked for January, and will see Jon Berg stepping down from his post – a post that involved running DC Films alongside Geoff Johns – in favor of a production role opposite Roy Lee (The Lego Movie, It).

Word is Berg never wanted to oversee the entire division for Warner Bros., and approached the studio about adopting a producer role almost six months ago. No word yet on who will replace Jon Berg at the helm of DC Films, but WB will likely want to name his successor sooner rather than later – particularly with Aquaman on the horizon. Meanwhile, Geoff Johns will continue

Warner Bros. has revealed the first look at Brenton Thwaites as the live-action Dick Grayson, aka Robin, in the upcoming DC superhero series Titans and he looks legit.

This weekend in theatres, I'm super excited to see The Disaster Artist and Elf!

The Disaster Artist is finally here! I saw this at Tiff this year and will definitely be seeing it again this weekend. James Franco plays the eccentric Tommy Wiseau in this behind-the-scenes look at the making of his cult-classic, The Room. Awesome supporting cast in this with Seth Rogan, Dave Franco and Alison Brie. Gather all your friends for this one!

Love this comedy so much! In Elf, after inadvertently wreaking havoc on the elf community due to his ungainly size, a man (played by Will Ferrell) raised in the North Pole runs away to the U.S. in search of his true identity. This one is playing as

Coco – Review

With 2017 nearing an end, the multiplex is ready to get you in the mood for the big holiday season. Those Bad Moms and the Daddy’S Home gang have gathered under the tree, and today we’ll find out how Charles Dickens became known in some circles as The Man That Invented Christmas. Now the talented team at Pixar are here to celebrate…Dia de Muertos. Hey that was almost three weeks ago, so you probably just boxed up all your Day of the Dead decorations. Just what are those jokers in Emeryville up to (well, Mexican movie goers did see it closer to the actual date)? Wasn’t that special day fully explored three years with The Book Of Life? Not hardly, and really if Christmas can be the setting for a myriad of flicks (from Elf to Die Hard), why can’t this day have more than one

My 5: Corbin Bleu’s Favorite Modern, Holiday Classics (Exclusive)

My 5: Corbin Bleu’s Favorite Modern, Holiday Classics (Exclusive)
Only 28 years old, Holiday Inn had been out for nearly 50 years by the time Corbin Bleu was born. But that didn’t stop the former High School Musical star and Dancing With the Stars contestant from stepping into the role made famous by Fred Astaire in Broadway’s musical adaptation of the film.

In fact, Bleu brought a modern flair to the character of Ted Hanover, a professional dancer who loses his partner to an oil tycoon and later sets his sights on friend Jim Hardy’s holidays-only hotel performer and love interest, Linda Mason. In one particular number from the Broadway show, “Let's Say It With Firecrackers,” Bleu performs a solo tap dance with the accompaniment of firecrackers with so much pizazz and style that even Astaire would have been impressed.

“We were really giving a new birth to the new number,” Bleu tells Et about working with choreographer Denis Jones to morph it for his body

Daddy's Home 2 review

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are joined by John Lithgow and Mel Gibson for Daddy's Home 2. Here's our review...

Will Ferrell’s comedy oeuvre has taken us on a strange journey. With as many hits as misses on his resume over the years, he was still once thought of as a dependable presence in otherwise absurd movies. He thrived at a time when over-long, improvised Apatow-era comedies were king, but his star has waned somewhat since that style fell out of favour.

Which brings us to 2015’s Daddy’s Home, which paired Ferrell with reliable scene partner Mark Wahlberg to create a disappointing family comedy that left very little impression after it was done. But it made enough money at the time to warrant a sequel in the studio’s eyes, so here we are.

Daddy’s Home 2 is not worse than the first film, but it’s still not very good.

‘Daddy’s Home 2’ Review: Mel Gibson Proves to Be One Daddy Too Many in Queasy Holiday Comedy
Daddy’s Home 2” isn’t sorry. It doesn’t care about your stupid feelings. Don’t remember what happened at the end of the last movie, or which home belongs to which daddy? Too bad. Don’t want your festive family comedies to star Mel Gibson as a serial womanizer with a flair for violence? Well, “The Man Who Invented Christmas” isn’t out until next week, so you’re shit out of luck. Don’t understand how Will Ferrell could re-team with Mark Wahlberg when a sequel to “Step Brothers” is possibly the only thing that could pull civilization back from the brink? Get in line.

A follow-up to one of Sofia Coppola’s favorite movies of all time, “Daddy’s Home 2” literally ends with its characters snowbound in a multiplex and forced to watch some limp Hollywood garbage because they don’t have anything better to do. In a better world,

As you probably know, Chef, starring Saif Ali Khan is a remake of the hit 2014 Hollywood film that starred Jon Favreau; who by the way also directed the brilliant film. Now we hear the actor/director is looking forward to watching the official Indian adaptation of the film.

Mr. Favreau has directed a vast range of Hollywood films, including Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and Elf as well as the last global blockbuster The Jungle Book. He has also been the executive producer on Iron Man 3 and the Marvel’s Avengers franchise.
