It’s a Won­der­ful Life, Scrooged Mir­a­cle on 34th Street

Santa Claus: The Movie.

Die Over the last few years, the Film Threat site (http://filmthreat. com/) has con­tin­ued to grow in in­flu­ence. So its an­nual Frigid List – an as­sess­ment of who’s los­ing power in Hol­ly­wood – is al­ways worth a glance. Few will be sur­prised to dis­cover Mel Gib­son, en­emy of the Jew, friend of the vint­ner, sit­ting proudly at No 1. Other pre­dictable en­tries in the top 10 in­clude the fore­men­tioned Lind­say Lo­han, Jen­nifer Anis­ton and TomKat. But what’s Bo­rat do­ing at No 3? Ac­cord­ing to Film Threat, his ca­reer as a prankster is over now that ev­ery­one on earth knows the char­ac­ter is a fake.

That we can un­der­stand. How­ever, Film Threat’s in­clu­sion of “movie crit­ics” at No 9 is an out­rage.
