Your favorite holiday movies roasted: See Twitter’s spiciest takes
Ah, it’s that wonderful time of the year again! Time to deck yourself out in your favorite fuzzy sweater, sit in front of your TV with hot cocoa in hand and watch the endless barrage of holiday movies. From time-tested classics to new Netflix originals, there’s no better way to capture the magical spirit of Christmas than watching cheesy holiday movies.
However, not everybody loves the traditional bonanza of holiday movies. In fact, some holiday movie offerings are deemed a cinematic equivalent of a big lump of coal in stockings. And when it comes to giving polarizing opinions, we all know Twitter doesn’t hold back. So grab yourself a big cup of eggnog because things are about to get spicy.
My cat walked across the keyboard earlier and accidentally wrote the next Hallmark movie.

The next Hallmark movie
Stop kitten around! You mean to say that the next movie entering Hallmark’s Christmaspalooza lineup might be the purr-fect holiday flick we’re all waiting for?

Sounds about right
You get a Christmas movie! And you get a Christmas movie! Everybody gets a Christmas movie! Hallmark: The Oprah of Christmas movies.
the knight before christmas was the dumbest movie in existence and had no story whatsoever, literally had next to no conflict or issues and was the biggest waste of my time and those are hours of my life, i will ever get back. truly a 13/10 movie no choice but to stan.

No choice but to stan
While we agree The Knight Before Christmas’s storyline is a bit unrealistic (fine, utterly surreal) and the conclusion is somewhat predictable (okay, super predictable), we’re still devoted fans of the movie. It has the perfect amount of sappy cheesiness to satiate our hopeless romantic hearts. Plus, who doesn’t love a dashing time-traveling medieval knight?
Does the mcu have 4 different versions of Vanessa Hudgens…I think not

NCCU vs. MCU
When Netflix announced its Christmas cinematic universe, the comparisons with other cinematic universes were inevitable. But let’s be real here, no other universe can fight back the power of four Vanessa Hudgens #GabriellaForever. Though, we are still waiting for the movie where all the Vanessa Hudgens get together to fight their evil Vanessa Hudgens doppelgangers. Get to it, Netflix!

Not a Christmas movie?
We could agree with that notion, but we won’t. Why? Because we don’t want to beckon a backlash from ardent John McLane fans. And honestly, we are so over this debate.
Unpopular opinion: Jim Carrey’s Grinch movie is the worst.
Followed by A Christmas Story.
I will be taking no questions at this time.

Well, in all fairness, the Grinch is just not a people pleaser.
I made a Twitter account for this. I needed to know im not the only one who feels physically uncomfortable with what’s happening. It’s a no for me! #GrinchMusical pic.twitter.com/I1LhPa1pwS

Another Grinch dumpster fire
Now, this is technically a musical. But we feel it needs a special mention after the Twitter uproar it caused. If you want to keep that Christmas cheer intact, we recommend that you keep away from streaming Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical this holiday season.
The plot of every Hallmark movie is about a career woman who is too busy for love but she has to move to a small town where a handsome local bachelor teaches her about the true spirit of the holiday. It starts snowing and they kiss. There is also a dog.

Every Hallmark movie plot
Does every Hallmark Christmas movie have the same plot? Absolutely. Are the endings predictable? Totally. Will we still watch them back to back? Of course we will!
watching Home Alone 2 as a child: WOW yes I LOVE it adults are so STUPID Kevin is a LEGEND
watching Home Alone 2 as an adult: Kevin Mccallister is a sociopath and an agent of the state who is excessively passionate about violence and avoids accountability for attempted murder

Change of perspective
Kevin went from being a poor innocent kid to a little rascal. Funny how time changes!
