I’m to old for this shit.

Unfortunately I was busy during the month of my favorite holiday, Halloween. Even though Christmas is my least favorite holiday there are some great Christmas movies out there. And everyone of course knows the basics (Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, White Christmas, ect.) but my list is for people who hate Christmas and Christmas movies. So throw away all that useless cheer and pour yourself a cup of cynicism and enjoy…. Lethal Weapon!

Reasons it’s a Christmas movie?
The movie opens with Jingle Bell Rock. It is littered with Christmas decorations and Christmas specials are constantly on the tv. Riggs even goes “tree shopping”

This was one of my favorite movies growing up. It is THE cop movie, it starts a great series, but number one is by far the best, it’s full of action and laughs.

There are two scenes that have always gotten me and both involve Mel Gibson. In the first one Gibbs loads one bullet in to his gun and contemplates killing himself. It’s so stressful, even though it’s obvious that Riggs isn’t going to kill himself, since he is a main character. The other scene is when they have Riggs strung up and are electrocuting him. It just looks painful.

It’s such a great buddy cop movie and builds a great foundation for their partnership in the movies to come. My favorite part of the movie is when Riggs and Mr. Joshua fight at the end of the movie. They finally bring the movie to an end with Riggs joining the Murtaughs for a family Christmas.

Be sure to check back for more Christmas movies for people who hate Christmas and Christmas movies.
