Welcome to Holiday Favorites, a series in which Slackerwood contributors and our friends talk about the movies we watch during the holiday season, holiday-related or otherwise
I suspect that when most folks are asked what movie is most firmly ingrained in their lives, many would list The Princess Bride, The Godfather or even Scarface. For me it's my holiday favorite that I can watch the year round -- A Christmas Story. I never asked Santa for an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle like Ralphie (Peter Billingsley), but I did want a pink bunny suit -- even if it would mean that I would look like a "deranged Easter Bunny" in the words of Old Man Parker (Darren McGavin).
One of my little idiosyncrasies is throwing movie quotes into everyday conversation, and this film adaptation of the satirical recollection by late humorist and radio personality »

It feels like a really long time since Rob Reiner has directed a solid-gold classic, but his back catalogue is as strong as that of most any director you might mention. It could be argued that his best work and therefore his best years are behind him (indeed that could be argued for any number of directors who are currently on cruise control rather than stretching themselves), but he is still working and so might yet “do a Scorsese” and find his way back to former glory after a period in the wilderness.
As the ensuing list ably demonstrates, Reiner has covered a lot of ground, with comedy, romance, thriller and drama all finding space in the upper echelons of his resumé. What is also noteworthy is that a good number of his films are amongst the very finest of their type across the whole of film. There are perhaps »

With extensive seasons on the Sound Of Cinema and World Music in recent months, BBC4 remains the go-to channel for genre hoppers. Most recently the channel has immersed itself in the grubby, boozy and ultimately fascinating history of the blues, with two-part series Blues America, as well as documentaries on renowned guitarists Big Bill Broonzy and John Fahey, all of which can be found on the iPlayer. And if that doesn't sate your 12-bar lust, the BBC4 website has a dedicated Blues Collection, including vintage editions of Arena and episodes from landmark 1979 series The Devil's Music. BBC iPlayer

For the first time in Fashion Police history, we're turning the Hot Mess premise on it's head. Julianne Hough looks like she couldn't care less about this outfit, and we absolutely love it. Typically, we'd call anything this baggy and confused a total disaster. The Paradise star is dressed like a cross between a biker chick and a coven member, with something that reminds us of The Princess Bride thrown in on her lace up top. She also appears to be wearing zero makeup and is potentially barefoot! And yet somehow the forces of this odd outfit combined give off a relaxed, sexy vibe. It's like Julianne rolled out of bed and onto this red carpet, and that's not just because she's rocking the »

Amazon's week long deals for 2013 Black Friday and Cyber Monday continue today, Wednesday, November 27, with a new schedule of DVDs and Blu-rays going on sale today and they are starting early. The deals throughout the day begin just after midnight today and there are a few titles worthy of your attention. If I had to select one title from the batch of deals going live today it would certainly be the Planet of the Apes Blu-ray collection, beyond that the Schindler's List Blu-ray is worth considering and, if you're looking for a nice little quadruple feature you can't really go wrong with picking up the Atonement, Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Elizabeth bundle, the price isn't yet available, but I have to assume it won't break the bank. Finally, that Best of Warner Bros. Romance Collection at 12:20 Pm might be worth a look as it includes some greats such »

When the reigning king of Westeros steps down – or, more likely, is forcibly removed – it will also be the swan song for Jack Gleeson, the actor who plays King Joffery Baratheon on HBO's Game of Thrones. Gleeson told the Irish Independent that he plans to retire from acting when his turn on the show wraps up, saying he prefers a simple life over the glitz of Hollywood.
"It was always a recreation beforehand, but when I started doing Game of Thrones, perhaps the reality was made too real for me, »

He stole our hearts as Westley, the stable boy turned Dread Pirate Roberts, in The Princess Bride, and now 26 years after the fantasy romance's release Cary Elwes is putting pen to paper to tell us all about its creation. THR reports Elwes will revisit the most beloved picture in his filmography for a memoir called As You Wish: Tales from the Princess Bride. Elwes told THR that it was the cast reunion that took place last year at the New York Film Festival to mark The Princess Bride's 25th anniversary that inspired him to channel all his warm recollections into a book for megafans. He explained in a statement: "It was a joy to work on such a magical film with an amazing cast of talented actors and friends. It will be great fun to revisit The Princess Bride and to share my fond memories of the unforgettable experience »

Lead actor of cult 1980s movie to publish account of making the postmodern fairy story
• Top 10 family movies
• My favourite film: The Princess Bride
As You Wish: Tales From the Princess Bride apparently arose from Elwes' enjoyment of a 25th-anniversary screening of the film at the New York film festival in 2012.
The book will include Elwes's recollections of his time on the set, along with interviews with key collaborators such as Billy Crystal, Robin Wright, Carol Kane, Christopher Guest and writer William Goldman.
"It will be great fun to revisit The Princess Bride and to share my fond memories of the unforgettable experience we all had," Elwes said in a statement.

When "Princess Bride" fans want something, Cary Elwes says, "As you wish." The actor will make legions of Buttercup and Westley fans happy by writing a memoir about the classic fairy-tale movie.
Elwes has signed a deal to pen a behind-the-scenes book titled "As You Wish: Tales From The Princess Bride." It will include his personal recollections of filming the movie, as well as interviews with co-stars Robin Wright and Billy Crystal and a foreword by director Rob Reiner.
"The Princess Bride" celebrated its 25th anniversary last year, and the cast and crew gathered for a special screening at the New York Film Festival. At the time, Elwes admitted he hadn't seen the movie since it premiered in 1987, but called it "just perfect."
"As You Wish: Tales From The Princess Bride" is due out in 2014. »

Rob Reiner's cult classic The Princess Bride looks set to be adapted for the stage by Disney Theatrical Productions. There is no word as to whether it will be a musical or a play but who wouldn't want to see someone sing "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." Variety report that Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn was behind the deal.
Disney has an impressive track record with stage adaptations of "classic" films, with Shakespeare in Love, Dumbo, Freaky Friday and Alice in Wonderland all currently in development and Aladdin previewing in Toronto, Canada before opening on Broadway in spring of 2014. Any opportunity to see Mandy Patinkin, Andre the Giant and Wallace Shawn's characters reunite - be it a remake, a stage play or a sequel - would be a treat.
