Survival Guide: You Can Survive the Holidays!

In the coming weeks, Film School Rejects will, for the first year on record, perform a valuable public service. Instead of counting down our favorite Christmas movies in a 12 Days of Christmas style feature or being hip and only celebrating Hanukkah, we’re going to do something that will actually help you while entertaining you and somehow bringing it all back to movies. We’re pleased to present our 2011 Holiday Survival Guide. In this month-long feature that kicks off Friday (Dec. 2), we will address topics such as ‘How To Pick Out the Perfect Present’, ‘How to Find Holiday Love’, ‘How To Pick Holiday Movies to Watch with Grandma’, ‘How To Avoid Being Murdered During the Holidays’ and plenty more thanks to the incredible depth of knowledge of the FSR staff. In short, we watch a bunch of movies so that you can learn life lessons. We’re having a lot of fun writing it, so we hope you have similar fun reading it. Keep your browsers pointed to our 2011 Holiday Survival Guide homepage throughout December so that you don’t miss out on all the fun.


Drinking Games

In the days leading up to Christmas, everyone’s heading out to Christmas parties, watching holiday classics and drinking plenty of egg nog. Whether you’re watching a Phineas & Ferb holiday special or something more edgy like Bad Santa, you can apply this drinking game to bring some holiday cheer. Some movies like Elf might get you stinking drunk in the first couple minutes, but others like It’s A Wonderful Life will keep you dry for much of the film but then slam you in the face with alcohol for the third act. Either way, it’s a great distraction from the stress of the season.



The Halloween holiday is many things to many people. But for most of us, it is at least about watching some appropriately-themed movies. Now we’d like to know what your picks are…



At a loss for what you want for Christmas? How about what to get your movie loving pals? Fear not, your gift giving guide is here.



But before I sent them off to their respective family engagements, I asked a select group of FSR staffers to give me one paragraph each on what they are thankful for in the year 2008.


We just wanted to take a second to wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah or a Happy whatever it is that you celebrate.


Before the Tickle-Me Elmo, before the iPhone, before the Nintendo Wii — there was the Turbo Man Action Figure!
