“Oh, the silent majesty of a winter’s morn… the clean, cool chill of the holiday air… an asshole in his bathrobe, emptying a chemical toilet into my sewer…” – Clark W. Griswold (Chevy Chase), Christmas Vacation
If you read Film School Rejects, you might not ever see much about religion. Which is okay, because this is a website about movies. And while Christmas is a primarily religious holiday, it is also a good chance to connect with family and friends. Not to mention, it’s a good party. And all of our regular readers know that we love a good party. We also try to celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and any other festivities that our readers might celebrate. There’s free drinks at those parties too, right? Alas, whatever you’re celebrating this season: Happy That.
That said, we’re taking it slow this Christmas weekend. Meaning that the posting of articles will be sparse for the next two or three days as we all relax and celebrate the season with plenty of food, drink and more drink.
Never fear though, as we will be back in a flash on Sunday December 27, when we will kick off our 2009 Year in Review, perhaps our most famous (and certainly most trafficked) yearly tradition. We will begin on Sunday with my own Editor’s Picks for the Top Ten Films of 2009, and continue with a full week of lists from all of your favorite FSR writers on topics ranging from the best trailers and movie posters to the worst movies of the year. It all comes to a close with our big Must See of 2010 list, which drops just before New Years.
So stay tuned. We’ve got a lot of exciting things coming up as we close down 2009.
Remember to party responsibly and get out there and see some movies. If you need help choosing, here are a few reviews that will aid in your decisions:
