And the best Santa is…

January 2, 2011


Hell yeah he is. Therman Murman approves.

Sorry for the two-week poll, folks. Santa got me a brand new VCR for Christmas and I’ve finally been able to revisit my VHS collection that’s been collecting dust for the past, oh, 34 years. Needless to say, I’ve been busy, but that’s enough of that. Back to the chaos of blogging.

Billy Bob: 18 votes
Tim Allen: 10 votes (man, that guy could use a comeback)
Edmund Gwenn (the original Miracle on 34th St. Santa): 7 votes
The mall Santa from Home Alone: 4 votes
The mall Santa from A Christmas Story: 3 votes
Dan Aykroyd in Trading Places: 3 votes
The Santa from Elf: 3 votes (bonus points for being one of the few people who knows where the original Ray’s Original Pizzeria is)
– Other: 1 vote for “Hulk Hogan, brother!” from Santa with Muscles (can’t believe I didn’t include that one), 1 vote for “The Santa in A Nightmare Before Christmas” (good call), and 1 vote for “Robot Santa Claus from Futurama” (another good call).

Well, hope ya’ll had a wonderful Festivus and New Year’s. Here’s to hoping 2011 isn’t the cinematic dry spell that 2010 was.

And just out of curiosity, anyone ever see Santa’s Slay? Pretty shitty for the most part, but Bill Goldberg definitely has his moments.

    I was the person who voted for Hulk Hogan. 🙂

    That Santa’s Slay clip was great in a terrible kind of way. Chris Kattan and Fran Drescher getting murdered by Bill Goldberg in the opening scene? Simply brilliant. Wonder if it’s still on Netflix Instant Watch… might be worth a drunken viewing some day.

    Anyway, just wanted to say I have been reading your reviews for a while now. Good stuff! Your blog is one of many that inspired me to start my own. Here’s to a great 2011!

      Haha, solid voting and glad you dug the clip. Rented that a couple years back (also a thoroughly drunken viewing) and you’re probably better off just YouTubing all the scenes where Goldberg goes on killing sprees because the rest is boring as sin.

      And thanks for the props, man! Absolutely love your site, too! Just played through God of War III myself (so awesome) and I’ve been dying to write a review on my sister site. Flattered to serve as an inspiration and keep doing what you’re doing, man. You’ve made it to the blogroll and count me in as a loyal follower from here on out.

    Thanks for the kind words, and for the link on your page! I added a link back to your blog as well.

    And yeah, God of War III is pretty badass. I am working my way through it right now and hope to have beaten the game by this weekend (review forthcoming!). I loved the first two games, but this one just blows them away. It’s amazing how good it looks on PS3.

      You said it, man. Had a great time with the first two, but this one might have been the most fun for some reason. Blame it on the Nemean Cestus and those couple flying sequences through the tunnels. Wild stuff, man.

      That mini game with Aphrodite was a bit on the ridiculous side though.

    Hey, Tim Allen is the new voice of Chevy. He’s doin’ alright. Also has all that Toy Story money…

      If it weren’t for Toy Story, that guy would be on The Surreal World.

Drop that knowledge!
