Wow, what a fokking mess..
I wanted to love this so much, especially after the negative stuff I kept hearing, but I guess lump me in with the naysayers, cause yeah..I got nothing out of this. Being a Die Antwoord semi-fan and absolutely a supporter of what they are as a concept, I was nothing but taken out of the film every time I saw one of their logos or them wearing their own band's shirts (I actually didn't think…
Each year I find myself worrying that this will have gotten old for me, and each year I quickly lose that fear and I cherish the time sitting with the family laughing and smiling at the warmth and perfect silliness of this film. Ed Asner is such a perfect Santa, and really the entire cast of this is pitch perfect. I said perfect 3 times, and maybe you can pick a nit here or there, but this really is a magical holiday film.
My body is still tingling and tense from the constant chills of this viewing. Absolutely completely unsettling and creepy as fuck. That book is cool as shit, they need to mass produce that thing.
[edit: oh shoot. it exists. $80 is a bit rich for my blood, but apparently there's a crowd-funding thing going on at the official website... get on this people, and buy me one.]
