  • Con Air: Great Movie or Greatest Movie?

    The following (horrible) films have won Oscars, if these are Oscar winning films, we cannot use the winning of an Oscar to lend credence to the overall quality of a film: - Beetlejuice - Bowling for Columbine - Brokeback Mountain - Christmas Carol, A - City Slickers - Forrest Gump - Frida - Harry and the Hendersons - King Kong - Men in Black - Nutty Professor, The - Shaft - Wings Furthermore, Forrest Gump lacks the depth that Con Air has. Forrest Gump's major strong suit is that it cleverly ties together major historical moments from around the 1960's, unfortunately the tie-ins are superficial at best and cannot even be used to give clear perspective of the history of that time.

  • Is National Lampoon's Christmas vacation the best Christmas movie of all time?

No, that distinction belongs to A Christmas Story According to a poll in 2012, "A Christmas Story" is the most popular Christmas movie, followed closely by "It's a Wonderful Life". "A Christmas Carol" (any version) was the third most popular, followed by "Christmas Vacation".

    Look at Christmas - you stress out having to buy a gift for your friends that it takes away from enjoying the days leading up to Christmas. It's why there is no problem with atheists celebrating Christmas. With Christmas carols humming away in the background before Halloween candy has even been taken off the shelves, it appears that they may be doing just that.
