My Dog Sam

can i ask why you don't like "it's a wonderful life" is there any particular reason?
Well, I find It's a Wonderful Life annoying. All that running through the streets yelling in that annoying voice, "Merry Christmas!, Merry Christmas!" He yells it to everyone! And that cranky man that causes the kids ear to bleed. Not nice. It's also not a movie I grew up watching. I tried to watch it and just can't do it! I gave White Christmas a try and I like that one and same thing with Holiday Inn, just don't ask me to watch It's a Wonderful Life!
Santa Claus Conquers The Martians WAS bad... that was the point! It was one of those "B" movies that used to run at the Drive-In second on the bill (with a budget of, like, $23) during the late 50's to early 60's... it was endearing in its blatant unapologetic badness... BUT...
The theme song alone is worth the price of admission...
See, I have the benefit of "warm childhood memories" to back up my watching of Santa Claus Conquers The Martians. It was one of those "so bad" B-movies released in 1964, that by Christmas time 1965, it was playing on local Pittsburgh TV on the Saturday night "Chiller Theater". I watched it with my dad and sister and we just LOVED the cheesiness of it (and being allowed to stay up past bedtime) and I remember my sister and I (I was 8, she was 6) dancing around the living room to the theme song.
