How about feel-bad films for the holiday?
Tugg.com 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 Tugg.com 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.
