Here at Film Blerg, the festive season has had marginal impact on the content featured. UNTIL NOW!
Starting December 13, Film Blerg’s “12 Days of Christmas Films” will see a joyful posting each day with insightful musings on the featured Christmas pick.
The premise: The 12 days before Christmas will feature a dazzling variety of Christmas films to celebrate the season in the least cheeziest way possible.
Time frame: Instead of the traditional 12 days of Christmas time frame that follows the 25th, Film Blerg will see the 12 days of Christmas occurring beforehand beginning on December 13.
Content: Mixed and varied is the easiest way to describe the programmed selection. Some clichéd picks are inevitable, but hopefully some picks will be a nice divergent too.
Defining Christmas Films: Christmas as a theme is the general requirement for our feature. God knows there are many films out there that feature Christmas as an event or a backdrop but don’t have Christmas as the overriding theme of the film.
What to expect?: Why, the unexpected naturally! But hopefully the feature will see a pleasing list of films to help greet the annual day of ultimate consumerism, basking in the hidden capitalist ways of our times.
And finally, Why?: Well, why the hell not really!
See you on December 13 for our first pick. And it’s a good one too!
