Holy whirlwind the past few weeks! First off I hope everybody had a Happy Holiday! With Christmas and work and this crazy ass weather, it has been nuts here in the Cave. I have watched a few movies the past few weeks so I will try and do a mega post later this week. I also have a few Cartoon's that I wanted to cover and hope to get to them soon as well. It has just been non-stop around here. I'm on vacation this week and this is the first time I have sat at a computer yet.
All tho some of my time have been in front of a TV playing video games with the girls. And when they are done I have been playing the crap out of South Park Stick of Truth.
I can not believe I made my goal of watching 52 movies this year and look to do 100 next year. For me with kids and school actives I'm happy with that number. It has also been a fun year of posting in 2015 and I look to carry that into 2016.
Anyhoo I hope to do a few post's before the end of the year so stay tuned! And thanks for stopping by the Man Cave from time to time you all have been wonderful!

In the early 90's you where either a Sonic fan or a Mario fan for some you could not be both. So for me, I took the high road and "Ran" with Sonic. I was unaware of this Christmas Speical until earlier this month when it popped up on ConTv. Being a fan of cartoons based on games and enjoying Sonic back in the day I was more than eager to check this out.

This year for Christmas I found myself digging for those old Christmas Classic Cartoons that you just don't hear much about anymore. So let us start this one off right with a little-known title...
1982 | Color | 29 min | 1.33 | G | Stereo | Holiday | Imagicom Productions Inc
Santa tries to bolster Sherman's self-esteem by entrusting him with the special task of guarding his Magic Toy Bag until Christmas Eve. When Sherman accidentally shrinks the bag by washing it, he fears there might not be a Christmas this year. Unless the accident-prone Elf can finally make things right!

Some of you just might not like me after this review. So let me start off with...
I was very attracted to this movie due to the fact it was about having Alzheimer's Disease. Painfully I watched my grandmother slowly pass away fighting this horrible disease. At times tho it was good I heard stories about her past that even my mom forgot about. At times, it was so wonderful to be there for her and hard other times as I watched her struggle with her day. Finding the remote in the fridge visiting after work and her stove was still on but at 96 she never gave up and has been a huge influence on my life. So while watching the first say 30 to 40 minutes of Still Alice, I was hooked and took the rollercoaster ride all over again. But then this movie just kind of fell apart. I understand that she (Alice) had a rare form of Alzheimer's but the movie stopped moving me and started to (GULP) bore me.

I remember having high hopes for The Mole People when it aired earlier on Sven and ending up kind of disappointed. The world of Mole People and the Mole's themselves were really cool, but I was not impressed. But in the spirit of Creepmas. I will tune in anyway!
Let me know if you tuned in tonight and how you felt about the Mole People.

On the Ninth day of Creepmas, The Krampus gave to me a Scrooge on TV
A Christmas Carol1971| Color | 28 Min | 1.33:1 | G | Mono | Holiday | Richard Williams Productions
Writer: Charles Dickens
For the past few years, I find myself tracking down a version of the Christmas Carol that I have not already seen. Why you ask, well every Christmas as a child the one thing my mom would ask to do on Christmas was to watch A Christmas Carol. We would all moan and grown when it came on and then would turn back to our Christmas haul and play away. It was not until I was older when I finally understood the power of this story. It is by far the best ghost story around. And now I find myself holding up her tradition with a little node to Bah Humbug every year.
This year I found myself captivated by this 1971 animated short that came out of Londen. This was the first animated TV special that was so well received that they released it into theaters. In return it became eligible for an oscar nomination and won in 1972. This is the only version of "A Christmas Carol" to will an Oscar even to this day. In fact, so many industry insiders were unhappy that a short originally shown on television was given the award, that the Academy changed its policy, disqualifying any future works initially shown on television.

What a killer poster that is right? And scream queen Adrienne King too! How could we go wrong with this 2013 remake of 1972's Silent Night Bloody Night? The only way to be wronged is to watch this big pile of fruit cake! That poster art will fool the best of us and I'm here to save you!!
