Larry's kind of a creepy guy, and honestly, some of these movies look kind of... odd. But he works at the video store, so he must know what he is talking about. Larry assures me that they are chock full of Sleigh Rides, Mistletoe, Gingerbread Men, and all that Christmas stuff that the kiddies go coo-coo for. But "Frozen," the movie we watched yesterday, turned out to be a movie about freezing to death in the mountains, not at all what I expected from a "Disney Princess Musical."
But don't worry, I'm sure today's movie will be better. It's called "Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale." Heck, it's got "A Christmas Tale" right there in the title! Larry tells me it's about a young boy who has a magical adventure in the North and meets Santa Claus. Just the sort of thing that my three nephews will go bonkers for! I'll be back with my review after I watch the movie...

Oh for Pete's sake! What is this malarkey? Was it about a boy meeting Santa? Yeah, but this version of Santa was some monstrous evil demon! There was blood, and explosions, and creepiness! Plus the end had a Santa Claus group shower scene that showed Santa Claus's penis! Imagine that! I had to explain to my nephews what penises were, and trust me, they were not happy about it! I explained to them that it was just a movie, and there was no such thing as a penis in real life, but I'm not sure if they believed me.
