No shotglasses till March , sic Vader on em' In the meantime just buy yourself a bottle (or two) of Knob Creek. Don't worry about having too much of it, your fellow (human) thread members will help you drink any extra that may arise.

That's awesome. Sounds like you guys are having a blast in Cali. Yeah, that shot glass is too cool. Sucks they're sold out until March.

The force is not strong with the shot glass Gods. How can you be out until March? Mmm, Knob Creek sounds yummy. And my drinking buddy just arrived.

Hey Wabo, What site did you find the Star Wars sweaters on, I googled them and came up with a lot of images, the ones above look to be of decent quality vs some of the other ones I've seen.

You must have drew THO's name at the office Christmas party. It's a British site. Click on the US flag in the upper right corner and it displays the currency in USD. They have some pretty cool stuff.

I want to buy that new Nintendo: NES Classic Edition they just released. It's sold out everywhere.

I will be looking for Christmas horror. Anyone seen the latest Krampus film? It comes to the box in a week or two only on DVD. Seem to recall I actually like the low budget Krampus film last year than the big budget one. Netflix also added the anthology "A Christmas Horror Story" today.

If you mean the one with Adam Scott, Toni Collette and David Koechner, I liked it.

That was last year's big film. I don't think a sequel for it released. This is an Uncork'd film:

Look's cheesy so serve with fondue and cabernet.

Lol, I liked the rawness of the low budget Krampus.


I liked the foreign movie Saint for an authentic feel on Christmas horror.

What do you guys think of the new Mummy teaser with Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe? I really liked the first two with Brendon Fraser. Seems everything needs to be remade nowadays.

Are there any Stargates in this?

Haven't heard much about the new Mummy film. But if it goes in a more "Omen-ish" direction, it could be interesting.

Cruise and Crowe are both good actors when they want to be, and have decent material to work with. They also have huge salaries, which can suck a lot of money from a movie's budget that could be better spent on production costs. I'd like to see Universal take a stab at doing some really first-class horror films though.

The Brendan Fraser films were fun (esp. the one with the Yetis ), but I'm not sure they really qualified as horror.

They weren't horror but they were fun. The new Mummy may be more horror like.

We have a winner in "A Christmas Horror Story" a Canadian SuperChannel movie from last year available on Netflix. The William Shatner bit is even a homage to "Pontypool". Some good scares in this one. Four zombie calling birds.
