Best Movies and TV for Christmas

Hey there guys! I hope this Christmas season is treating you well. I trust everyone is finding time to sit down with family and friends and enjoy some good food, drink, and some good movies. Just like with my Halloween movie and TV suggestions, I’m going to break down some awesome geeky Christmas movies and TV that should not be missed this holiday.

Of course everyone has their favorites, and they shouldn’t be missed either. “Christmas Story”, “ Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer” are always on some of the big ones this time of year, and they are all great.

But my family and I roll a little different. I hope some of these suggestions make it into your holiday this year.

Ho Ho Ho It’s Christmas time, and here at Movie Issues we love to watch some awesomely bad Christmas movies. And nothing says Christmas to Leland and Spooky more than love, family, coming together, drugs, sex and murder.

Movie Issues: G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra

G.I. Joe are all well known American heroes, but it’s the unsung heroes of Leland and Spooky who are burdened with the task of watching 2009’s G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, and now they want to share their experience with you.

Welcome to the first official Movie Issues Podcast!  A heartfelt podcast where two guys brave the deepest and darkest recesses of cinema and bring back some of the worst movies they can find.  Every week the guys watch another so-bad-it’s-good movie that should only be watched with friends.  Then they take their notes to the podcast table and rip that movie to shreds!

And now on with the show.

Best Movies for Halloween

Best Movies for Halloween

We talked last time about some great Halloween-themed TV shows. So this time, we’re going to talk about the Halloween movies.

Now, I will miss some big ones. NOT to fear! It’s not because they’re not awesome; I’ll just be talking about the ones that have meant something to me over the years.  Some of these I have grown up watching every year and they have become more than just films to me. If I don’t see them every year around this time it just doesn’t feels right.

Hopefully, some of these are your favorites too, or they give you some ideas for your movie nights in the future.

The Best of Halloween TV

Every year, like many others, I gather up my friends together about once a week and watch Halloween theme TV or movies to get us in the spirit of this spooky time of year. So with Halloween approaching, I thought I’d do a small list of fun, nerdy TV and movies that I enjoy every year.  Maybe this might help some of you guys get ideas for what to show at your next horror movie night.

I’ll be talking about TV in this article, and I’ll be hitting the movies next time. So grab your flashlight, popcorn and some good candy, because here we go:

New Costumes in DC’s Relaunch Good or Bad?

New Costumes in DC’s Relaunch Good or Bad?

With the recent announcement of the DC Relaunch lots and lots of information has smacked us in the face. Like who’s who? What’s happening to “such and such”? Where is my favorite character going? And what the hell are they now wearing?

I thought I’d take the time to spotlight some of the more bizarre fashion designs that we are going to be “looking forward” to in recent months. Now I haven’t been to the future to see if these costumes stick around. I’m just as fearful as the next geek, and trying to understand some of the  “bolder” choices.

But lets dive in and discuss, shall we?

Comic Issues Presents: Thor – Review

Comic Issues Presents: Thor – Review

Recently, I had the pleasure of seeing an advanced screening of the Marvel Comics latest hero-turned Hollywood movie, Thor. In following the successful Iron Man franchise, and the soon to be released Captain America and Avengers movie, Marvel seems to be getting their continuity together for a very good set of films, which is a nice change of pace being that Marvel hasn’t been able to do the same for their latest books to save their lives. Perhaps Marvel needs to brake down and have a “Crisis.” That however, is not what this is about–this is about The Mighty Thor. Thankfully, here Marvel has another strong film on their hands. “Thor” is everything you’ve come to expect from a Marvel movie; it’s fun, action-packed, epic and widely accessible to comic fans and non-comic fans alike. As with all Marvel films to date, you should stay to the very end. Yes, suffer though the horrible Foo Fighters song–trust me, it’s worth it!
