Holiday Movies

planes-trains-and-automobiles

The master of blending comedy, drama and real people, we can think of no one we’d rather spend an awkward holiday dinner with than John Hughes. So this week on the show we’ll heap praise on the filmmaker who delivered our teenage years and families back to us on the screen. To help us out, “You Couldn’t Ignore Me If You Tried” author Susannah Gora joins us to share some fantastic insights into that old Hughesian magic. We’ll also explore why there are so few Thanksgiving movies (you still have leftovers, right?) and rattle off a list of them (which will naturally lead us right back to John Hughes!). Sweet, sweet symmetry. You should follow the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more on a daily basis. And, as always, if you like the show (or hate it with seething fervor), please help us out with a review. Download Episode #42 Directly Or subscribe Through iTunes

Why Watch? It’s the story about a snowman with no arms on an adventure to find some. It echoes Rankin & Bass, and it’s pleasantly low-budget the way the first South Park Christmas videos were. Plus, it’s delightful and only a little bit creepy. Enjoy the ending! Happy holidays! What does it cost? Just 8 minutes of your time. Trust us. You have time for more short films.
