    Default A Christmas Story 2′ goes straight to DVD

    In case you're reeling from disbelief, the 1983 holiday classic "A Christmas Story" has, in fact, been made into a sequel.
    "A Christmas Story 2" is going straight to DVD and Blu-ray October 30th. And it's available just days before the debut of the Broadway musical based on the original story of little '40s-era Ralphie and his Christmastime woes.
    The film sequel follows Ralphie as a teenager. He no longer yearns for a Red Ryder BB gun, but now wants a 1938 Hupmobile Skyline Convertible. There are a few things that haven't changed: Triple dog dares, and the fact that the old man -- Ralphie's dad -- is still obsessed with that fishnet-stocking-adorned leg lamp.
    "A Christmas Story 2" stars Daniel Stern ("Home Alone," "City Slickers") as the crotchety, lighting fixture-fixated dad, and Ralphie is played by accomplished child actor Braeden Lemasters ("Men of a Certain Age," "Easy A").
    Like the original, the sequel is based on the writing of the late Jean Shepherd. Shepherd's stories about the Parker family have actually been used several times in much lesser-known movies: "A Christmas Story" was made into a sequel in 1994's "My Summer Story" (also known as "It Runs in the Family"), starring Kieran Culkin, Charles Grodin and Mary Steenburgen. PBS also aired a series of three television movies based on Shepherd's stories including "Ollie Hopnoodle's Haven of Bliss."
    Fun fact: Shepherd provided the narration as the adult Ralphie in "A Christmas Story." Stern, who plays the dad in the upcoming sequel, is also a famous narrator of a young boy's tale: He was the voice of the adult Kevin Arnold in late '80s, early '90s hit television show "The Wonder Years."
    Incidentally, it appears "A Christmas Story 2" will be among a final slate of direct-to-DVD offerings from Warner Bros. The powerhouse movie studio -- responsible for theatrical hits including "The Dark Knight Rises," which has earned nearly $835 million worldwide -- is shutting down its business responsible for direct-to-DVD productions, according to the Wrap. The company is citing "a decline in the direct-to-video film market."

    Could this be the film to knock "The Deer Hunter" off the coveted number 77 spot in Rocknblues81 flickchart?

    I will watch with interest.

    Did anyone here ever see The Sandlot 2? That sucked pretty bad too; different kids, same setting and same plot.

    Who knew fans of a shallow party rock band (that became a sentimental pop rock act) could be such elitist regarding film? You learn something new everyday.

    You expect to take jabs at people and not receive a response in return?

    Therein lies my point.

    I'm not taking a jab at you. You, of all people, should appreciate the humorous charting of the films in your list. The Deer Hunter at #77 is one such example. I bet you looked at your list a few times and chuckled at some of the placings.

    The humour in my comment lies in a random movie seemingly unplacing a film of the calibre of The Deer Hunter, which is already oddly placed in a list full of odd pickings (something which you have already indicated in your first post of your thread - by the way). I was making a joke. Yet, you assumed it was an attack and replied in turn.

    See the humour in it, and lighten up a little.

    Now... Can we have a cuddle? My head hurts from all that explaining.

    Believe me, in some places, that type of thing is a type of jab.

    Sure, there is some randomness to it. Rankings a lot of times are splitting hairs type of deal. Example, I would probably consider T2, Aliens and Die Hard at a tie as far as action movies go.

    My sense of humor isn't great. I'm 31 and little in my life has went well and it shows I guess.

    They've made the playoffs more times than the Cubs have the last decade.

    That's wonderful. How far did they get? And how long did it take you to think of that one?

    Jesus, you don't like to have fun, do you?
