The Worst Christmas Movies

posted by Nell Minow

We’ve spent a lot of time on the best movies of the season, but like those families whose traditions include an ugly Christmas sweater competition, I want to take a moment to discuss the way that Christmas seems to inspire some of the most hideously painful movies of all time. Videogum’s “The Hunt for the Worst Movie of All Time” includes some horrifically appalling movies like “Four Christmases” and “Christmas with the Kranks,” but overlooks the even worse “Deck the Halls.”
Inevitably, anyone’s worst list will have a movie that you like a lot, and this one has one of my favorites, “Love Actually.” But they are soliciting suggestions for your candidates for worst Christmas movie of all time and there are many good choices left (does anyone remember “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians?”) so let them know what you think.

    So apparently there is a Home Alone 3 and 4. They both look absolutely horrid. I mean how many sequels can you make before you throw the towel in. Ugh it’s annoying.

Movie Stingers: Scenes After the Credits
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRJ38y4Jn6k[/youtube] Ferris Bueller had one.  Marvel superhero movies sometimes have two.  When did it become a thing to have a scene after the credits (sometimes called a stinger)? New York Magazine's Vulture column has the history of these extended
