Stocking Stuffer #6: King of the Hill - "Pretty Pretty Dresses"

9/12/2017
More
We continue our march through King of the Hill‘s Christmas episodes with season 3’s “Pretty Pretty Dresses,” in which Bill suffers a bout of suicidal depression around the holidays. This episode is a perfect example of how well this show broaches sensitive issues in a thoughtful manner while still letting its characters be lovable goofs. By 1998 standards, at least. If you or someone you love needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline today at...

Episode 52: Arthur Christmas

8/15/2017

It's back to school time, everybody! I mean, that's technically true, but it really has nothing to do with this week's episode. Just thought you'd like to know. This week we dig into the holiday-industrial complex behind Arthur Christmas, Aardman Studios' animated comedy about the complicated hierarchy of the Claus family. Also, we're very bad at geography.

It's Christmas in July here on Christmas Creeps, and you know what that means: It's Redboxing Day!

We've talked about it for ages, and with our 50th episode landing on the 4th of July, the time just felt right. We finally watched Santa Buddies. In this episode, Joe muses on the inherent holiday magic of an unlocked door, Brad spends an inordinate amount of time talking about JO crystals, and Johnny-5 does everything in his power to talk about literally anything other than Santa Buddies.

6/19/2017

Father's Day forced us to scrap our planned episode, so instead Joe and Brad decided to talk about one of their favorite things: Video games! In this double-wide edition of Stocking Stuffers, we discuss "Koopa Claus" from the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, as well as the Sonic the Hedgehog special Sonic Christmas Blast! Thanks a lot, dad.

Episode 49: Prometheus

5/24/2017
More
With Alien: Covenant now in theaters, it's the perfect time to discuss Prometheus, Ridley Scott's 2012 prequel to the Alien franchise that may or may not actually be a Christmas film. Does a Christ allegory automatically make a film a Christmas film? Why do they take their helmets off on an alien planet? Where does this film fit in the Split Timeline theory? The answers to these questions and more in this week's episode! Questions/Comments? Email us at XmasCreeps@gmail.com Tweet us...

Episode 48: White Christmas

5/9/2017
More
On this week's episode, the Creeps tackle one of the holidays' most ubiquitous movies, the Bing Crosby/Danny Kaye musical White Christmas. Along the way, we also go down rabbit holes related to Power Rangers, Jonathan's knowledge of America's train system, and the wackadoo madness Brad dreams about when he eats smoked salmon. And somewhere in all that, we actually discuss this 1954 classic. All in a day's work around these parts! Questions/Comments? Email us at...

Stocking Stuffer #4: Alf's Special Christmas (Part 2)

4/18/2017
More
Welcome back for the *thrilling* conclusion to Alf's Special Christmas. In this episode, Dr. Shumway delivers a baby, Alf Claus pulls both a Woody AND a Clarence, and Joe and Bradford find themselves baffled at a modern spin on the same puppety material. With so much maudlin promise in the first half of this special, is it any wonder that part 2 doesn't particularly stick the landing? Questions/Comments?

Episode 46: Wild Card

4/4/2017
More
This week we took a random shot in the dark with Wild Card, a movie that looked like it might have been Christmas-related. Instead, we got a movie about Jason Statham beating up Las Vegas gangsters and playing a buttload of blackjack. Is there an important holiday message hidden inside? Does the glitz and glamour of Sin City warm Milo Ventimiglia's icy gangster heart? Or is it all just an excuse to have Statham beat dudes senseless to the soothing sounds of "White Christmas"? Tune in to...

On this edition of Stocking Stuffers, Joe and Bradford dip into the madcap holiday antics of Ed Edd'n Eddy in their first holiday special: "Jingle Jingle Jangle".

Happy Redboxing Day, gang! It's that magical time of year when all of last year's Christmas movies are now popping up in your local DVD dispensers! This week, we stall for as long as we can to keep from discussing the bleak comedy wasteland that is Bad Santa 2. Why bring back Bad Santa now? Who asked for a man-sized Thurman Merman?

Episode 44: The Ref

2/7/2017
More
Gather around the dining table, friends! This week, guest Drew Meyer joins us to have a surprisingly level-headed conversation about the 1994 Denis Leary/Kevin Spacey comedy The Ref. What was meant to be a shorter episode spins out of control as we keep finding little details that demand to be discussed. From the screenwriting craft to the mid-90s suburban malaise, The Ref is full of fun little cinematic surprises. Questions/Comments? Email us at XmasCreeps@gmail.com Tweet us...
