The Incomparable 491: The Yellow Ones Don't Stop

Get out your flask of maple syrup, warm up your Lite Brites and Etch-A-Sketches, and check the Clausometer, because it’s time to tell the story of Buddy the Elf. It’s 2003’s “Elf”, the modern Christmas classic starring Will Ferrell. What are the theological implications of the seven levels of the candy cane forest? Why so many “Lord of the Rings” references? How can James Caan and everyone else at the publishing company be so bad at their jobs? Wait a second… this isn’t maple syrup!

Jason Snell with Erika Ensign, Kathy Campbell, Annette Wierstra, Steve Lutz, Brian Hamilton and Joe Rosensteel


Defocused 27: A Growler of Maple Syrup

It’s Dan and Joe (We know them! We know them!) here to talk about the 2003 classic Christmas film, directed by John Favreau, Elf.

The Incomparable 71: The Holiday Movie Vault

Grab some eggnog and hitch up your reindeer! It’s time to put six holiday films in the Incomparable Film Vault! We discuss some beloved classics and offer a few surprise choices that redefine what “holiday” and “film” actually mean. What is a realistic depiction of Santa? Is Bill Murray’s best Scrooge not actually in “Scrooged”? Has Clarence the angel left a trail of dead bodies behind him? Is Kris Kringle the original Apple Genius? Happy holidays, everyone!

Jason Snell with Andy Ihnatko, Dan Frakes, Glenn Fleishman, Serenity Caldwell and Steve Lutz
