Another holiday, another marathon of YouTube linkery. This time around, I’ll be posting a movie trailer a day – think of it as your own personal virtual retro previews advent calendar. Less chocolate, more Announcer Guy.
Let’s kick things off with a confession: I haven’t watched National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation since it premiered in theaters twenty-three years ago. The closest I’ve come to a revisit is the occasional half-minute I’d catch on basic cable while flipping channels. Checking out the vintage trailer doesn’t give me much reason to rectify this, although the sight of Chevy Chase repeatedly causing himself bodily harm does bring a smile to my face.
