A Christmas Story Payday

The original movie is kinda a holiday classic. Unless its based on a work of the original author it's just a soulless thing. Never got the hype I just view it as that movie tbs showed on nauseating repeat on xmas day.

They already tried a televised play that I lasted about 3 minutes before turning off. I'm also kinda over the original. Didn't watch it last Christmas and didn't miss it. Need a break and the sequel isn't a fix.

It's already had several sequels. They all sucked.

There's a movie that came out this year that's very similar (though not a direct sequel) set in the 80's called "8 biatchristmas." We watched it and really enjoyed it. I think it's on HBO Max. But I doubt it's going to catch on because that title is farking terrible.

I watched it for you. One year I'll do the whole 24 hours, but this year I only managed 16. I look forward to 8 p.m. Christmas Eve every year.

I'll never get tired of that movie. Ever.

The narrator was trying to do an old man voice, but instead sounded like he was being held at gunpoint.

I would be more interested in the very same movie set in the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, etc. or just one of them.

That dude does have magic eyes though.

I've heard of that one. It was based on Jean Shepherd's short story "I got 8 Christmas problems but a biatch ain't one".

A Christmas Story is unrelatable crap for anybody who wasn't born prior to 1950.

And it's REALLY crap for anybody who is well acquainted with the traditional airing of it for 24 hours straight on Christmas day.
 
2022-01-21 4:52:46 AM  
"While Christmas has come and gone, Legendary and Warner Bros are looking to give a belated gift to us all,"

Belated gift as in "taking a big dump in the toilet cistern" gift.

Jean Shepherd is long dead.  Not only the writer and narrator of the original film, he *WAS* Ralphie.  That was the whole point.   Grown up Peter Billingsley does have his voice.

BTW, Jean Shepherd was a ham, and fluent in Morse code:

They're setting it in the 1970s instead of real time into the 1980s to not make us feel old.

I'm always amazed at how everyone worships Christmas Story as a paragon of wonderful nostalgia. Jean Shepherd's stories & his incredible live radio performances are much darker than the movie versions.

Huck And Molly Ziegler: "sews the seeds" ???

That's an old-fashioned phrase. Back in the days before the cotton gin cotton would have a lot of seeds in it, which would end up in clothes, thus "sew the seeds." It means "to originate." Thus, you can "sew the seeds" of your own destruction, which of course means having scratchy cotton seeds in your shirt.

Cracked did an article where the writer watched the direct-to-video sequel on repeat for 24 hours as a sort of parody of articles where people attempt to watch the original for the full 24 hours that it airs. It was such a horrible experience that it wasn't even a fun read, so I won't link it. But he really did watch it for 24 hours straight on DVD, and even started fast-forwarding it by the end, even though that doesn't make the time pass any faster.

Google up The Great American Fourth of July and other disasters, a PBS special from the late 1970s. It's worth a watch.

I'd kill to find the PBS TV series he did. I remeber watching them i teh 70s/80s. You can find his (several) PBS movies with a little digging, but his TV series (Jean Shepherd's America) was also great but I've never found them online anywhere.

The thing is, all his written works, while very good, is still not as good as his live radio performances. His *hundreds* of live WOR radio performances are incredible. His reputation as a monologist is sadly overshadowed by his movies and books which I think are a pale copy of his radio works.

It's one of the new breed of retcon sequels that picks up directly from the first one and pretends the other sequels never happened. In this one, Ralphie will not be Laurie Strode's brother.

Kinda sorta. The 2016 Ghostbusters was a straight-up reboot that played like none of the other movies had happened. It was supposed to be a complete fresh start.

But while it doesn't explicitly mention it, Afterlife does acknowledge GB2 (in its relentless quest to fill every background corner with callbacks, things like the dancing toaster make an appearance). However, it naturally doesn't mention the 2016 movie, because the 2016 movie existed in its own universe where the lead up to Afterlife didn't take place. So in the case of Ghostbusters, they didn't write off all the sequels. Just the one sequel that tried to write off everything else.

Very messy.

Are you suggesting we don't Google it because there's nothing to find? 'Cause I can't find a thing about his dad.

I mean, what Jean Jr did to his kids was pretty terrible, but I can't find a darn thing about Jean Sr.
