Excerpt: Bought this off Amazon PQ is pretty good, it's definitely not the best looking Blu-ray there is out there, but it looks fine. Detail is good, colors are good, it does have a flat look, but still it looks fine AQ is fine as well, only being a Dolby Digital soundtrack rather than Dolby TrueHD, but it sounds fine, dialogue is good, and I guess there is no lossless audio because it is a 2006 release, but maybe LPCM could've been a better choice to use All you get for extras...
Summary: Ok, I get it, I'm only 23 years too late to have finally seen this Christmas classic. But, that's just the way it is. I don't really have much to say about it, it's hilarious. The Griswold clan can't seem to get anything right. Just like in the previous films. It's sad to see Chevy now, people forget just how great he was in his prime.
Summary: I found this movie to be annoying. I truly could not stand it. I am not a big Chevy Chase fan as it is, so that played into my opinion a little bit. I honestly could not find much laughs out of the movie. It is one of those movies that had me fumbling around on my laptop to keep me entertained while it played in the background. I would say skip this one, but the general public, and the fact that this movies reputation still has clout, would say otherwise.
Excerpt: The second funniest film in the Vacation franchise, only benig beat by the first one. It involves, as if you didn't already know, about Clark Griswold having a family reunion at Christmas time. And everything that can go wrong does. The picture is an upgrade from the standard dvd and the audio is not altogether that bad either. Sad set 'o' extras though. Not even worth mentionng.
Summary: This is my favorite National Lampoon film, a movie that takes a demented spin on the family holiday traditions most everyone is familiar with. Chevy Chase is magnetic as the gradually more and more unhinged Clark and the film has one of the best lines of the entire franchise.
Excerpt: Chevy Chase and Beverly D'angelo return to thier signature roles of Clark and Ellen Griswold in what has become one of the Christmas classics every since it made it debut in 1989. Most of the creative people behing the original Vacation including writer John Hughes came back to the fold after the lack luster European Vacation. Christmas also brings back Randy Quaid as cousin eddie and a host of other seasoned actors who play Clark & Ellen's parents.
