Recommended Posts

Felix Estridge

Netflix released their 2nd trailer to the new moving coming on out 11/22, The Christmas Chronicles.  It gives us a LOT more content than the first trailer.

I'm at work and can't see the video.  Being on Netflix has me greatly concerned.

agreed - a lot of the movie will be CGI - but the elves just don't look right - but I am pretty sure plenty of kids will be referencing the movie (and asking about Santa's fat butt) after this comes out....

just want to say 

             showed this clip to my son 

he commented that he can "totally see that being you as Santa"

             I think that is a compliment....

but hey - I have a 17 year old son who still likes to hang out with his old man, even when he suits up for Santa !   :thumbup2:

Just watched the movie (it's 10:30 pm) in the Netherlands. It was fun, I was amazed by the CGI, I laught, and at the end had a tear. Kurt Russell made a nice Santa, I like his suit a lot, I believe in him as a marvel comic Santa. But it's quite far from the traditional Santa Claus I want to be!

Just finished watching the movie and I'm not impressed. Sorry, I'm just a bit old fashion and this one is definitely  not my cup of tea. One item marked off my bucket list by saying been there done that but never again. Way overboard and out of line with my interpretation of Santa Claus and the mystic that surrounds him.:thumbdown::thumbdown::thumbdown:

Watched it today. Not a big fan of how they turned Santa's Elves into gremlins with tails. A little creepy if you ask me.

We don't do Netflix so I will have to wait.  I agree with the look of the elves.  Do not really care for the look at all.

If we had Netflix I'd give it a shot, but I don't so I can't. From what little I saw of the movie clips, it wasn't enough to get me to want to sign up for it. We had Netflix for four of the months after my third rotator cuff surgery and I was told to DO NOTHING for the first 3 months after surgery. Don't see me signing back up as nothing too new except the movies that go right to them directly. Not worth the $10 a month when your not working.

It was a fun movie.  I watched it this morning (and don't have a Netflix account).  The elves threw me a little but they're for the children watching and I understand the choice.  I like Kurt Russell's look though the slight snarkiness wasn't quite what I expect from Santa.  

It may just be me, but I hoped for a fancier sleigh.  This one was very utilitarian and I'd never have glimpsed at it and thought "Santa." 

On a related note, Rudolph was conspicuously absent.  As in The Santa Clause, I'm assuming that it's a copyright issue.

I do like how they explained Santa's speed and ability to travel around the world in a single night.  Kurt Russell's Santa was a very magical being.

Mixed feelings...

Elves: :thumbdown:

Reindeer, explaining the way Santa could travel all over the globe, general overall storyline: :thumbsup:

Costuming: :thumbup:

Santas snarky behavior: :sc_hmm:

But his overall view of Christmas spirit: :clap:

Do I feel it ranks up there with other Santa based Christmas classics: :sc_hmm:

Would I watch it again: :popcorn:

Having Goldie as Mrs. Claus as a surprise at the end: :thumbsup:

We had a wee gathering last night (middle east time) to watch this "Christmas Chronicles" and get into the spirit of things!

The movie was amusing and we all liked Kurt Russel as a Santa and his outfit.

But.....

Yes we all agreed, what the heck are the Gremlins doing in the movie! They were a little creepy and reminded us most definitely of scenes from various gremlin movies!

Though I suppose they were attempting to give a kind of Scandinavian feel to them?

Overall about 7/10 was the general consensus, the movie may well have just come out but it felt like it could have been out for years and made a good Sunday afternoon movie at home.

gonna agree with @Eileen Strom on this one - we watched it - had some fun - it was cute but snarky - of course Christmas spirit wins out in the end - and of course Santa knew that all along - will probably add to the library and watch again

Watched it, it was Ok ,the elves with Gremlin like appearance I did not like. The sleigh looked like an old wooden boat with runners. How soon will we see Santa's leather outfit recreated and his watch copied and up for sale?

my Father Christmas robes are a little more rustic - so I am halfway there - but I expect by next season you will be seeing that style outfit and the watch quite a bit...

I watched it last night. I enjoyed the costuming, it reminded me of David Huddleston.  I’m on the fence about the gauntlets though. I thought the elves were cute in and of themselves, but they didn’t make me think of Santa’s elves. The sleigh was disappointing. I really enjoyed the little girl’s first interaction with the reindeer and I liked the way they were portrayed.  I enjoyed Russell’s performance, but he just didn’t look like Santa to me. 

On a positive note, I did like that he portrayed Santa as a physically fit guy.

    • Every Once in A While
      Every once in a while I see some flagrant abuses of Santa’s appearance and etiquette. It strikes me some men don’t care about how they act or portray the beloved character of Santa.

      Gentlemen, you undertake an awesome responsibility when you button up your Santa Suit. Don’t take it lighty!

      The “World” has an image of Santa as represented by illustrations, traditions and personal contact. Believe it or not, you’re being measured by those who see you for your authenticity.

      You’re fooling yourself if you believe that no one notices or cares if your bead is yellow or unkempt. Maybe you’re also missing a few of those pearly whites, or they are stained from tobacco products. Again, don’t fool yourself….kids notice everything! I have a gold crown capping one of my lower teeth. Every once in a while, I have an inquisitive youngster question what that gold thing is in my mouth. Years ago I thought it was well hidden however; kids have uncanny radar to pick out any of our flaws….

      You may be asking yourself, “What difference does it make? “It’s not the Christmas Season.” Maybe it isn’t however, If you’re representing Santa, you’re representing one of the most recognizable characters in the world. What you do reflects upon me and every Santa reader of this article. If you’re going to be recognized then do justice to the character we are reenacting.

      Over the years I have been a Santa, I have frequently been by told by people about the Santa they hired or saw which left a very poor expression. Most of their comments were predictable. Their Santa did not interact with the children as expected or he was unprepared. He was unanimated, had a dirty suit or lack luster beard. Obviously these are sure fire ways never to be called to this group again.

      Think about what impression you make as a Santa and pay attention to developing your character. You can become one of the best Santas in your area by learning everything about your character and performing from the heart.

      Always remember: It's not about you. It's about the children.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?
