How 'A Christmas Story' Went From Cult Movie to Holiday Classic in 30 Years

18 November 2013 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's a menswear store on a quaint cobblestone street in my suburban New Jersey town whose Christmas window display each year includes a lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a fishnet stocking. That no one thinks this is tacky or even unusual is a tribute to how remarkably pervasive "A Christmas Story" has become over the past three decades.

At the time of its release 30 years ago this week (November 18, 1983), the movie was a cult favorite at best. Since then, however, it's become the indispensable Christmas movie for a couple of generations of viewers, as essential a holiday staple as "It's a Wonderful Life." Tens of millions are expected to watch at least some part of the film when it airs 12 times in a row during the annual TBS "24 Hours of 'A Christmas Story'" marathon on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

From The Wolverine to The To Do List, here's what to see and what to skip in theaters this weekend: See This:The To Do List Every generation needs its Porky's. Hey, that's not a bad thing - you don't want to know how many times I've seen Kim Cattrall howl like Lassie. It just warms my deviant heart that this particularly funny raunch-fest comes from the female perspective.     Parks and Recreation's delightful Aubrey Plaza stars as Brandy Klark, high-school valedictorian and confirmed virgin. Determined to lose her v-card before college, Brandy makes a list of sexual acts to complete, »

Horror Remakes We'd Love to See

21 January 2013 9:00 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Like most horror fans, I'm not always pro remake. There are some films that simply should not be remade. However, I am supportive of remaking a film if the creative team behind the reboot can bring something new to the table or improve upon what the original film did, in some way. Case in point, Tobe Hooper improved on the source material in his 2004 remake of The Toolbox Murders. Hooper's remake was a more cohesive film than the original and was more effective at keeping its viewer engaged throughout the film. The original was poorly paced with the entire middle of the film being exhaustively sluggish. As for bringing something new to the table, James Gunn and Zak Snyder didn't outdo the original Dawn of the Dead with their 2004 reimagining, but that's not what the duo was trying for. Instead, they provided a highly enjoyable companion piece with their reboot »
