Christmas Movies Actually

Aug 20, 2023

If you got to the end of the "Die Hard" episode, you heard guests Erik Laws and Erik Childress name-drop this 1984 sci-fi concoction, "Trancers," starring Tim Thomerson (as Jack Deth!) and before-she-was-famous Helen Hunt. Kerry and Collin decided "may as well" and dove right in. Piecing together elements of "Blade Runner," "The Terminator," "Back to the Future" and "The Hidden," this movie actually pre-dates most of those and certainly works as a Christmas movie. Beware of mall Santas! They just might be a trancer! This is some stupid fun. And what does any of it have to do with "The Room"? Is there too much of an age difference between the two leads? How can "Jingle Bells" sound badass? All this, plus three worthy entries in the "We Just Say Book" segment.

Book segment films covered:

"Clueless" (1995)

"Reds" (1981)

"Sons of the Desert" (1933)
