  Happy Easter, from the MovieSnobs Team

Sweeney Todd in PeepsFor the not-very-religious/non-Christians, Easter is a day for a nice dinner, time spent with family, and of course, all the candy you can shove in your face. One Easter favorite are those fluffy little marshmallow Peeps.

The Seattle Times ran a reader submission contest for scenes made out of Peeps. Among them, No Country for Old Peeps, the WGA strike staged in Peeps, and my personal favorite, Mrs. Lovett’s Peeps Pies (at left). There’s even a little Peep Sweeney Todd in the upstairs window.

You can see the gallery of all the submissions at The Seattle Times.

IMDb has a St Patrick’s Day logoUnfortunately, there aren’t many holiday movies for St. Patrick’s Day, unless of course you count Leprechaun (which I don’t).

IMDb thought it was appropriate to celebrate anyway by pulling a Google and changing up their logo. Check out the Irish pride on IMDb’s logo below.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the MovieSnobs staff! Enjoy your corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, and random green foods.

  Romantic Movies for Valentine’s Day
Posted by: Christine on Feb 13th, 2008 2 Comments »

In case you can’t get out to the theater to see the new romantic comedies Definitely, Maybe and 27 Dresses, you can get any of the movies below on DVD to watch with your sweetheart, or all alone with a bottle of wine and a box of Godiva.

  • Across the Universe – A love story told through the music of The Beatles.
  • The Nanny Diaries – Based on the novel, Scarlet Johanssen stars as an Upper East Side nanny that falls for the uptown boy next door (played by Chris Evans).
  • License to Wed – A lame movie starring two very talented actors, Mandy Moore and John Krasinksi.
  • Lucky You – Yet another Drew Barrymore rom-com.
  • Knocked Up – Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen find themselves together after an unlucky one-night-stand.
  • Music and Lyrics – Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant in a romantic comedy – big surprise, yet I loved it.
  • Because I Said So – Diane Keaton tortures her daughters, and the audience, throughout this one, although Mandy Moore is a joy.
  • Pride and Prejudice – The classic Jane Austen love story starring Keira Knightley.
  • Just Friends – Ryan Reynolds in a romantic comedy focusing more on the comedy than the romance.
  • Fever Pitch – Drew Barrymore again, this time with Jimmy Fallon in a love story about a boy and his baseball team, and the girl that gets in the way.
  • Mr. & Mrs. Smith – Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in the action movie that launched their own relationship – the chemistry between the two is clear, and the action is awesome.

If you’re really on a Drew Barrymore kick, you can also watch 50 First Dates and The Wedding Singer, both romantic comedies starring Barrymore and Adam Sandler. You could also watch Ever After, Barrymore’s take on Cinderella, or go old school and watch E.T. and enjoy the love between a girl and her alien friend.

The MovieSnobs staff wishes you a very Happy Valentine’s Day!

  Top Ten Deranged Christmas Movies

For those of you that are sick of the traffic, fed up with holiday shoppers, and are prepared to scream if you hear “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” one more time, this list is for you. Rope of Silicon has a list of the Top Ten Deranged Christmas Flicks, which includes The Nightmare Before Christmas, Bad Santa, and Gremlins (which I wholeheartedly agree with – I still don’t like listening to “Do You Hear What I Hear”).

The number one is surprising, but appropriate. Check out the full list on Rope of Silicon.

A Christmas Story tongue stuck to the poleTBS starts its 24 hours of A Christmas Story tonight at 8pm. As if you could ever get tired of seeing the kid stick his tongue to the pole, Ralphie in the bunny outfit, or Randy oinking like a piggie at dinner.
