“Santa Claus: The Movie” Not Nice

HO HO HOpeless. Greed comes to Christmas in the first Santa Claus origin story/superhero reboot.  Dudley Moore, John Lithgow  do their best to get through “Santa Claus: the Movie.” Obviously they only read the first draft of the paycheck. Mike Spiegelman, my brother from the same mother, joins with back ground on this film, ridiculous moments and product placement. Yes, a movie that takes place mostly on the North Pole has product placement. Lithgow chews up the scenery like a Christmas cookie and Moore sits there like an old fruit cake. The movie has the same footage of NYC that was used in Superman. This time they just put Santa on it. Plus a lot of glitter. Chantel!

Dear Santa, I know you know when I’ve been sleeping and you know when I’ve been awake. Sorry about the film. Could not keep my eyes open. Enjoy two out of three cookies I left for you. ”

Impulse buy Mike’s very funny joke book.

 

From Wikipedia:

In his book Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas, critic Alonso Duralde lists Santa Claus: The Movie in his chapter of worst Christmas movies ever. His reasons include weak plot, garish production design, blatant product placement (particularly for McDonald’s, though Coke and Pabst Blue Ribbon are also prominent), and scenery-chewing overacting on the part of Lithgow. Duralde ultimately concludes that the film is “a train-wreck of a Christmas movie that’s so very wrong that you won’t be able to tear yourself away from it.”

 John Carpenter was originally offered the chance to direct, but also wanted a say in the writing, musical score and final cut of the movie. Carpenter’s original choice for the role of Santa was Brian Dennehy.

(Yes, I just quoted a source that quoted a source.)

From IMDB.com, lines from the movie:

    Ancient Elf: The Prophecy has come to pass, that there would come to us a Chosen One, and that he, having no child of his own, would love all children everywhere, and that he himself would be an artisan, and a craftsman, and a skilled maker of toys. [to Santa] And now, Chosen One, come forward. From this day on, now and forever, you will bring all our gifts to all the children in all the world, and all this to be done on Christmas Eve.

    Santa Claus: How can I do so much in just one night?

    Ancient Elf: Well, know this: time travels with you. The night of the world is a passage of endless night for you, until your mission is done. This is your legacy, and your gift…. as is the gift of flight. Now, all those within the sound of my voice, and all those on this Earth everywhere know that henceforth, you will be called — Santa Claus. And now, everyone, Merry Christmas.

Anna Nicole Smith: Behind the Tragic End

 Anna Nicole Smith’s last film was “Illegal Aliens.” David Giancola directed that ill fated film and made a documentary about his insane experience. The movie has lots of footage of Anna on and off camera.  David and I talk via Skype about making both b-movies like Anna’s last “Illegal Aliens” and the documentary “Addicted To Fame.” 

We also talk about making films in Vermont, shooting bar mitzvahs, using media and being used by media and truth behind Howard K. Stern. 

Plus local rock legend: Johnny Azer. He’s great. I booked him on a TV show 10 years ago. He was great. His YOUTUBE video is at the bottom of the page

“Blacula”


Filmmaker Jimmy Castor, Jr. Comic Jim Bruce (“The Paul Goebel Show”)and myself bite into 1972’s “Blacula.” Like most vampire films, there’s a blood sucking, bats (what happened to bats?) and a guy named “Skillet.” Afros and wooden stakes are everywhere.

The sound is a little different. It’s because we were recording in a cinder block room and because I was giving Jim Bruce crap for his show sounding so bad. Karma!
Below are my semi- professional notes.

“NightBreed” – The Lost Version

Update! For the first time on home video, you can experience Clive Barker’s original director’s cut of Nightbreed with over 40 minutes of new footage, all mastered in high definition from the original camera negative!“Night Breed” director’s cut. That’s what the people involved in the “Occupy Midian” want. They are the 99% who demand the Clive Baker film released on Blu-ray the way the director planned it. We talk to one of the members of this determined group of youngsters. Russell Cherrington tells us why this cut is so important.

Philip Davies spotted this site and wanted to know more. So he went to Midian. Not a smart move. We haven’t heard from him since. His shrink said he’s fine and not to look for him. So I say we just leave well enough alone. I know nothing will go wrong when I do this interview.

“Nail Gun Massacre” w/ Todd Levin

"Nail Gun Massacre"

“Nail Gun Massacre”

“Nail Gun Massacre” It’s “Nail Gun Massacre” a very fun slasher film where the killer dishes out bad one liners and nail influenced death. Todd Levin (“Conan”) and Adam Spiegelman (Proudly  Resents) talk about this great bad movie and what the Sklar Brothers would be like as mass murders.

Look out! Nails! These nails will get you just by going in your hands.

Clips of “Nail Gun Massacre” were taken out of the show b/c the NGM people pulled down other sites that played clips. But I was able to get the ending of “Nail Gun Massacre” off youtube. It’s not in English, but it wouldn’t make any more sense if it was.

Here’s Todd Levin talking about Todd Levin. By Todd Levin:
