Happy Holidays from all of us here at Pop Culture Footnotes! To celebrate, we’re covering a longtime holiday pop culture favorite: Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. Yeah, we covered a ballet. We classy like that.
Buffalo gals, won’t you come out tonight and dance by the light we shed on Christmas classic, It’s a Wonderful Life? Join Courtenay, Shannon, and this week’s guest Andrew as we dive into what makes this movie such an iconic part of the holidays.
We’re still coming down after the holidays, so we figured we’d round out the season with just one more Christmas movie. Welcome to our breakdown of action movie classic, Die Hard! Join Courtenay, Shannon, and Tana as we break down the plot, go over notable scenes and lines, share our favorite parodies, and discuss what makes this film one of the best action movies of all time. Is it actually a Christmas movie? Tell us what you think in the comments!
Don’t get scared now! We’re getting psyched for the holidays at Pop Culture Footnotes, and as our gift to you, we offer this episode about Christmas classic, Home Alone. Join us as we play trivia games, go over the plot, and talk a bit about what makes this movie (and to a lesser extent its sequels) such a big part of the holidays for so many people.
