The Fine Brothers, an internet comedy duo that speaks fast and spoils movies, is back to spit in your eggnog this holiday season with “50 Christmas Spoilers in 3 Minutes.”
Faster than you can go a-wasailling, Benny and Rafi Fine spoil every Christmas movie you’ve ever heard of — and some that you haven’t. As with all Fine Brothers YouTube videos, there are two types of viewers.
The first love the spitfire, spoiler-soaked, saccharin snark and wish the yucksters plenty of presents under the Christmas tree. Or menorah. The other, perhaps the Grinches of the group, want to stuff the boys’ faces with figgy pudding to dam the endless patter of plot-ruining banter.
Where do you fall on the Fines? While you chew that over, here’s a list of all 50 Christmas films:

Chicago – The most memorable moviegoing experiences of your life are often circumstantial. They may depend entirely on the audience that you see them with. There are few things more magical than the moment when an ageless work of cinema manages to move and invigorate your soul, along with those of the surrounding audience.
That’s precisely the experience I had while attending the annual Music Box Christmas Show a few years ago. It’s impressive to see how much the event has grown over time, with its double feature of holiday classics now extended into a five-day marathon. In its twenty-seventh year, the show has become somewhat of a family affair. Returning audience members have been invited to submit photos of their past visits for inclusion in a pre-show slideshow. Young moviegoers (and the young at heart) will enjoy the intermission festivities where Santa Claus materializes and leads the audience in a series of carols. »

There will probably never be another American diplomat like Richard Holbrooke. The reason is partly personal. Most diplomats are careful, reserved, discreet... diplomatic. Holbrooke was the opposite. He didn't merely court reporters; he stalked them. And when they didn't write enough about him, he wrote about himself. He did not do subtle. When he bore down on people, he had about as much respect for personal space as Lyndon Johnson in a men's room. As Democratic doyenne Pamela Harriman once put it, "he's not entirely housebroken."

In all these ways, Holbrooke was part of the sociology of 20th-century American Jewry. He entered the Foreign Service in the 1960s, when it was still something of a Wasp club. »

See Videos - Clips of the top Christmas movies There’s nothing better over the Christmas season that huddling up by the fire, in the glow of the Christmas tree and watching a Christmas movie. Here are some of our favorites acted and created by Irish and Irish American. 1. “Elf” Will Ferrell’s character, Buddy the Elf, has become a famous Christmas character and his move, “Elf” is beloved by all ages. The movie tells the story of Buddy (Ferrell) who travels from the North Pole to New York City to find his birth father. Since its release in 2003 it has been a classic. 2.“Miracle on 34th Street” This is a 1947 Christmas Classic staring our own Maureen O’Hara. The movie tells the tale of a group of people who are left wondering whether or not a department store Santa is the real deal. 3.“How the Grinch Stole Christmas” This »
Of all the films at the London Film Festival, we particularly warmed to Lemmy, the rock documentary from directors Wes Orshoski and Greg Olliver. And, luckily for us, they were on hand for a chat. So, we grabbed a few minutes of their time, just before they scarpered off for a drink with two members of New Wave of British Heavy Metal group, Girlschool.
Two charming and energetic dudes, they regaled us with a few priceless production anecdotes, including how they got on Lemmy’s good side, what the man himself thought of the film, and how, when they wanted to storm a stage at a Metallica gig, they ignored the band’s managers and asked James Hetfield directly.

Holiday films are an important American pastime. However, such a genre requires skill to execute. One must include all of the important ingredients, namely two cups of heart, a dash of fantastical whimsy and a good ole spoonful of yuletide rejuvenation, in order for a traditional holiday film to work. With that in mind, we here at Collider decided to compile a “best of” list – of sorts. Included within are personal favorites of the staff, or the films we all grew up watching during those festive afternoons when school was canceled due to winter storms, or during Thanksgiving or Christmas break. At their best, these films represent a merry tradition, one honored in most American households – these are the films we believe soundly capture the spirit of the holidays. They may not be the most critically acclaimed films (sorry Holiday Inn), but they provide the aforementioned ingredients plus one additional key element – nostalgia, »

Chicago – Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye was the #1 film of 1954 and has become an annual favorite for millions of families all the way back to the days before VHS. Paramount has released the musical charmer on Blu-ray with new special features along with a snowy 2-disc holiday DVD edition for those still waiting for Santa to bring them a Blu-ray player. Dream of a “White Christmas” in HD.
Blu-Ray Rating: 3.5/5.0
First, a little history. The film “White Christmas” is not the origin of the song that gave it a title. It was reportedly sung before “Holiday Inn,” a 1942 film with Crosby, but that’s the film that made it popular (and, actually, a better flick than “White Christmas,” which is something of a remake of “Holiday Inn”). With its longing for home, the song took off during World War II and won the Oscar for Best Original Song. »

Over the course of her career, Studio City, Calif.–based casting director Beth Holmes has been tasked with tracking down a 75-year-old diver, a bona fide bullfighter, and "a 5-foot-tall wrestler of Latino heritage."

The Pacific Northwest was once again invaded by Crypticon, and if you missed it, you missed a devil of a good time. Held the weekend of June 18th-20th, the big change this year for this growing event was the switch of venue from downtown Seattle to the Holiday Inn in Everett, Wa. A transition that caused more than a few to scratch their heads.
Why the change from the heart of the Emerald City to a location some thirty minutes north? "In order to keep ticket prices affordable for the fans, we had to make the change," says Mickie Bunnage, one of the event's organizers. "The Seattle Center was just too expensive, and if we wanted to keep costs down for the fans, we had to move."
And if the reaction from those in attendance is any indication, the move made little difference and gets a big thumbs up. »

Lawrence Taylor, a Hall of Fame linebacker for the New York Giants from 1981 to 1993 and contestant on "Dancing With the Stars" Season 8 with Edyta Sliwinska, has been indicted by a grand jury in New York on charges of rape, criminal sexual act and sexual abuse.

Rockland Country District Attorney Thomas Zugibe says the girl claims she was verbally threatened and physically assaulted. She says she was taken to the hotel room by a pimp, who was later arrested by NYC police.
Taylor is denying the charges, claiming he didn't know the girl was 16 years old. However, ignorance of the girl's age is not a defense in the eyes in the law, »
