251: Ugh! This Is Garbage! I Don‘t Know Why They Are Always Trying To Remake The Classics! (Home Sweet Home Alone)

Happy Monday, Christmas fanatics! Can you believe it's already the week of Thanksgiving here in America? Time is flying!

As a special holiday treat for our listeners, please enjoy our hotly anticipated "Home Sweet Home Alone" episode! In a rare alliance, Anthony and Julia find themselves on the same side of the divide during this discussion, with both of them disliking this new original movie from Disney +, while Thom does his best to defend it as he self-medicates with a seasonal Rogue Ale called Santa's Private Reserve, which he highly recommends! What does everyone's favorite contrarian like about this film? What does everyones favorite Pollyanna not like? And why does everyone's favorite New York Christmas podcaster think this film is the embodiment of modern day Disney Studios' creative bankruptcy? You'll just have to listen to find out!

Also discussed in this very enjoyable episode: spy videos from the set of Disney +'s highlight anticipated, long-awaited sequel, "Hocus Pocus 2"; the new trailer for the MCU's latest installment, "Spider-Man: No Way Home"; each of the elves' Thanksgiving plans; and much, much more!

So, settle in with your favorite holiday beverage beside your Christmas tree, sit back, relax, and enjoy this fun episode!
