Christmas Fan Films - By Christopher Moshier
Holiday greetings my fellow fan film lovers. This is truly my favorite time of year as I get to celebrate two holidays
for the price of one.Christmas is the exchange of gifts and good times as New Years Eve is the time to get so drunk you forgot
about how much money you spent on Christmas. I know it isn't politically correct in the good old United States of America
to say Merry Christmas, but guess what!?! I'm not politically correct. What ever your belief is this time of year or whatever
country you are reading this from I wish you all very much merriment. If you are not one to normally celebrate this holiday
please allow me to invite you into it if only for this article. ALSO! Some of these films are of the adult nature. Not that
any of these links are any worse than what you see on Prime Time TV, but just a friendly heads up to the fact if you want
to share these with a young one they should be viewed first by an old one. OK! Now that the public service announcement is
over I want to present my Christmas presents to my friends. Let's start out with some stocking stuffers...
Ornaments: The Movie (http://www.ornamentsthemovie.com) This is an amazing CGI animated holiday fare that ranks right up there with Toy Story and Monsters Inc. All this Santa
Ornament wants is to free himself from the tree and get himself some cookies. Does he succeed? It's Christmas! Of course there
is a happy ending!
Holiday Force (http://www.atomfilms.com/af/extreme/series/holidayforce) Parental Discretion Advised. I started listening to George Carlin
when I was 13 with the "OK" of my parents so I am assuming if the younger audience finds this there is a parent figure monitoring.
At least I hope to assume that. This really isn't that bad by today's standards and stays in the holiday theme not to mention
these are funnier than hell.I mean "heck!" This is a super-hero group called "Holiday Force"based on the US of A's major holidays.
Jesus and His Brothers (Click Here) Enjoy these best-loved tales of the Savior and his siblings, Marty,Vinnie and Chuck Christ, as seen in "The
Bible" and retold by Al Jean, a mere mortal with credits on over 200 episodes of "The Simpsons."
Popp Guns Christmas Flash Pages(http://www.kengunn.com/flash/christmas) These are really fun. Just call Popp Guns the MTV of the online Christmas
Community, your favorite Christmas Carols with flash visuals.I had a great time going through them and they really put me
in the holiday spirit.
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians(http://emol.org/movies/santaclaus/index.html)YEAH! The title pretty much explains the pure cheese on this 1964 not so classic. Martians, upset that their
children have become obsessed with TV shows from Earth which extol the virtues of Santa Claus, start an expedition to Earth
to kidnap the one and only Santa. It's pretty bizarre, but it gave me some chuckles. It is over an hour so if you have no
life like me then that shouldn't be an issue.
Now on to the main fan film gifts! We here at Fan Boy
Theatre give you not one, but two Fanboy Theatre exclusive fan films for your holiday delights wrapped up and sitting under
the Christmas Tree with care.
WOLVERINE: LAST CALL - A film by Dan Poole exclusive
to Fanboy Theatre with the permission of Mr. Poole. You can check out a recent Fanboy Theatre interview with Dan at http://www.fanboytheatre.com/id59.html.
LOBO PARAMILITARY CHRISTMAS SPECIAL - This movie
was never meant to be distributed via the internet. It was a student film protected under the guidelines of the American Film
Institute (AFI). How did Fanboy Theatre get it? Now that would be telling. Needless to say it is good. Download it, watch
it, and enjoy it. If for any reason we get a cease and desist we certainly will due so, but it is a shame that this little
gem was packed away in the closet.
This is the last Fan Film Folly for 2005. I hope everyone
has enjoyed the interviews and articles I have put together thus far. It can be alot of work at times, but a whole lot of
fun. To all the great fan film and film makers out there I give great thanks. Everyone I have contacted has been gracious
to send samples of their work and field any questions I may have had. I thank Will, curator of this great site Fanboy Theatre,
for allowing me a place to hang my hat so to speak. He does a perfecto job and has THE best fan film information site
on the internet. In closing I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday, and a Groovy New Year. We'll catch
you in 2006.
