Rangoon Reviews: Christmas is Here Again (Part 1)

How is it the Christmas movie that tries to be inoffensive actually comes across worse than Elf Bowling? Our Christmas gift to you all is this overstuffed dumpling of a movie so full of writing sins and plot holes, we gotta tackle it in two parts!

Can Christmas be brought back? And if this is the Christmas we’re supposed to get, do we really want to? Join Sunny Jim, Starchibald, and some special-type guests and find the hell out!

Rangoon Rifflets: 2014 Wholiday Special

There are a great many parallels between Santa Claus and Doctor Who. But frankly we’re disinclined to spend really any time at all thinking of them. We’ll leave that to Tumblr.

In the meantime, we’ll be here adding running commentary to this pair of “sneak previews” from a pair of Doctor Who Christmas episodes! You’re welcome!

Rangoon Rifflets: Vision in the Forest

Join RCA spokesvoice Vaughn Monroe and his family in the deep woods, which are littered with Smokey the Bear signage, through which the paranormal phenomenon of Smokey can manifest! Also, there’s a pretty good -if inexplicable- short performance of “Ghost Riders In the Sky”.

Mash out those cigarettes and join Starchibald and Sunny Jim for some musical meandering!

Rangoon Rifflets: Holiday Commercial Loaf

Yeah, sorry, we know the holiday advertisement assault actually begins around mid-August.

Enjoy a four-pack of holiday-ish commercials of bygone times, lovingly stuffed full of zesty riffs. For the loved one in your life.

Rangoon Rifflets: Out of the Frying Pan Into the Firing Line

Oh boy, another World War II era short fi- wait. WALT DISNEY? Seriously?

Yup! Sunny Jim and Starchibald join Pluto and Minnie Mouse in a lesson in saving your nasty leftover cooking greases to grease the wheels of the American military!
