Bill Murray’s first film after a four-year post-Ghostbusters hiatus finds him facing ghosts of a more festive nature in this perfectly 80s take on A Christmas Carol.
Murray’s Frank Cross is a selfish, nasty (and often cross, frankly) TV exec who gets the three-ghost treatment in the form of a maniacal New York cab driver (David Johansen); a ditzy fairy (Carole Kane) with a penchant for pratfalls (“the truth hurts!); and, naturally, a ghoulish seven-foot messenger from the future who…
It's a Wonderful Life 1946
It’s just not the holidays without It's A Wonderful Life.
Although Frank Capra’s A Christmas Carol-esque fable was not massive success when it was released in 1946, it’s since come to be regarded as one of the greatest films ever made, a wholesome Christmas classic beloved by generations. Unapologetically sentimental, but unafraid to deal with some darker realities, It’s A Wonderful Life’s charming performances by Jimmy Stewart, Henry Travers, and Donna Reed (not to mention Karolyn Grimes as the adorable Zuzu) will melt the heart of even the most cynical of cinephiles.

Last Holiday 2006
Loosely based on the 1950 Alec Guinness film of the same name, Queen Latifah sparkles as a woman living out her last days in extravagant style in LAST HOLIDAY.
Filmed on location at the Grandhotel Pupp in the Czech Republic (often cited as the inspiration for Wes Andersen’s Grand Budapest Hotel), LAST HOLIDAY is overflowing with luxurious locations and famous faces, including LL Cool J, Giancarlo Esposito (aka Breaking Bad’s Gus Fring), Gerard Depardieu, Emeril Lagasse (yes, that Emeril), and even future Little Mermaid Halle Bailey in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it background appearance.
This sweet, charming, warm-blanket-in-movie-form is now available on Blu-ray and Digital.
Bad Santa 2003
Billy Bob Thornton takes the “saint” out of St. Nick as a misanthropic conman whose yearly mall-theft scheme (involving a very dirty Santa costume) takes a turn toward merry mayhem when he inadvertently befriends a bullied kid.
Be warned: Bad Santa is vulgar, dirty, disgusting, offensive…and somehow heartwarming?

48 Hrs. 1982
The laughs fly (almost) as much as the punches in this hilarious and action-packed two-hander.
1982’s 48 HRS stars Nick Nolte & Eddie Murphy as an unlikely duo: a rough-edged officer and convict on leave who team up to solve a crime in--wait for it--forty eight hours. (2 DAYS just doesn’t have the same ring to it.)
A genre-defining action comedy, 48 HRS represents several firsts: the first major “buddy cop” film; Joel Silver’s first producer credit; and Murphy’s film debut,…
