Christmas / Holiday Movie Fest 2014: #3 - Gremlins (1984)

Christmas / Holiday Movie Fest 2014: #2 - Bad Santa (2003)

Christmas / Holiday Movie Fest 2014: #1 - Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights (2002)

Ho ho ho and a merry bah-humbug. Pop Punk Radio is back with more movie reviews! This time we are tackling the holidays with Christmas / Holiday Movie Fest 2014! A majority of our reviews will probably be Christmas movies, but we are willing to include other winter holiday films as well. As evidenced by our first entry, Eight Crazy Nights, an adult animated cartoon produced by and starring Adam Sandler, whom we all know celebrates Hanukkah.

The movie features voice acting from some of Sandler's old Saturday Night Live buddies including Rob Schneider (The Narrator & Mr Chang), Kevin Nealon (Mayor Dewey), Jon Lovits (Tom Baltezor) and even Carl Weathers, (the guy who played Apollo Creed in the Rocky films) as a...
