We’re back with part 2 of our discussion on 2010’s Summertime Christmas, and this one’s a massive undertaking. Elves, Santa, God, magic berries, bad kids, heavy-handed messages, this movie’s got it all. This is probably the longest episode we’ve ever done and Skinner is angrier than he’s ever been, with good reason; the politics of this movie are as messed up as can be and did nothing to instill the Christmas spirit in us (even if it is summertime). Listen, learn, laugh, love.
We recorded this episode together in the same room for the first time ever! The experience was great; we’re just sorry the movie we picked isn’t better. You can literally chart how far our excitement falls from Part 1 of this episode into Part 2. We really thought it was gonna be a good one! Why did they think calling this Robot War was a good idea when there is literally only one robot in the film? Why doesn’t every sci-fi movie have a character named Decker? Why is Kyle such a nothing character? Listen in as we explore this and many other topics in today’s episode.
