Every damn year TBS decides to play the classic 1983 Christmas movie “A Christmas Story” for 24 fucking hours.

I seriously cannot be the only one out there that gets annoyed by this? I of course just simply just change the channel and watch something else anyways. There are plenty of other great movies on during the day as well as the many sports games that I watch each and every year too, Go Lakers and the Chicago Bears!

But does this one movie need to be played all damn day long by TBS? I do not think so. I will not argue that it is not a good or classic movie, I know it is. I do enjoy watching it maybe 2 or 3 times while more than likely not a full sit through. But does it need to be played for 24 hours? I can see maybe playing it every few hours while TBS plays another great classic movie in between it.

What TBS should do is mix in a bunch of Christmas movies and do a 48 hour marathon (or stick to 24 hours) with movies such as “Christmas Vacation (1989)” “The Santa Clause (1994)“, “Home Alone (1990)“, “Babes in Toyland (1986)” (like TBS use to play), “Miracle on 34th Street (1984)“, “Scrooged (1988)” as well as many other great and classic movies to choose from.

Note: I especially love watching both Chevy Chase in “Christmas Vacation” and Tim Allen in “The Santa Clause” movies all the time. I do like Home Alone too. Who does not love these specific classics?

So what do you think? Would you rather have a mix of great and classic Christmas, especially all or most from the list I mentioned played for either 24 or 48 hours in rotation or just “A Christmas Story” played all day long?

The number one movie has to be Iron Man 2.

Now not so much in any particular order, the movie’s I am really looking forward to seeing are:

The Expendables – Huge cast of awesome actors from Jason Statham! to Sylvester Stallone to Mickey Rourke and more.
Toy Story 3 – It is fucking Toy Story… 3.
Get Him To The Greek – Jonah Hill, Russell Brand, oh yeah.
Grown Ups – Has Adam Sandler Kevin James and more)
Predators – I hope will be good, really hope so.
Red Dawn (remake) – I loved the original, I just so hope they do not fuck it up.
The American – George Clooney is a great actor, but this movie seems so-so and possibly just not theatre worthy.
Little Fockers – Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, and etc are back for another sequel, I think and hope it will be funny.
A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas – it is Harold and Kumar, come on? How could you not want to see it?

That is just a little list of what I hope to all or mostly enjoy this year in movies. There are more to name but most of these are the bigger ones I have kept or stuck out to me at the moment. What are yours?
