How about feel-bad films for the hol­i­day?

Austin American-Statesman - - D MOVIES & LIFE - is cel­e­brat­ing the hol­i­day spirit with a lit­tle tongue-in-cheek movie fun. Ev­ery­body is used to see­ing “A Christ­mas Story” or “Mir­a­cle on 34th Street” all over TV around the hol­i­days, so the web­site that al­lows au­di­ences to choose films to play in their lo­cal the­aters is do­ing some counter-pro­gram­ming.

Tugg has added eight new movies that are set around the hol­i­day sea­son, with ti­tles rang­ing from the darkly comic (“Bad Santa”) to sim­ply dark (Stan­ley Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut”). Other ti­tles in­clude noir com­edy “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” “Lethal Weapon,” “The Night­mare Be­fore Christ­mas,” “Bat­man Re­turns,” “Grem­lins” and “Die Hard.” Au­di­ences can visit to re­quest screen­ings at the the­ater of their choice. If a ti­tle gets enough votes, it screens. Tugg’s board of ad­vis­ers in­cludes Austin film­mak­ers Ter­rence Mal­ick and Richard Lin­klater.
