  1. Art Mills says:

    How can you forget the greatest Christmastime movie of all time? Gremlins!!!!!

    • Tim says:

      You’re both right. Gremlins is a good one, but I gotta be honest…Gremlins freaked me out as a kid. I may have blocked it out due to childhood trauma.

  2. Steve says:

    I was going to make the same comment as Art. Gremlins should have at least made the list as honorable mention.

  3. Lindsey says:

    Great Top 5 list! Gold star for including Iron Man 3!

  4. Lesley says:

    Wow the votes for “who sang it better” are closer this time around! I’m gonna have to watch all the movies you suggested because I haven’t seen any of them. I know, I know. I can’t call myself a child of the 80s anymore. Also, I love the bloopers at the end.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE This podcast! So glad I found it from Moustaglia.

    You forgot one of the best Non-Traditional Christmas movies of all time (and my absolute favorite)…Auntie Mame – you have to go way back for this one. The musical Mame gave us “We Need a Little Christmas”

    Keep up the great work and can’t wait for the next podcast.

    Awesome episode! Love the good work on Jingle Bells. Anything about driving fast and picking up girls deserves closer examination. And you’re on to something with the whole Jingle Bells, Batman Smells thing. Where did that come from?
