Thanksgiving Film/Television Staples In Your House


Recommended Posts

Interested to see what if any films and tv you guys watch around Thanksgiving. It was brought up in my office today and I mentioned Twilight Zone marathon is an absolute must in both mine and my wifes family, everyone looked at me like I was weirdo.  We also run through Band Of Brothers the weekend after Thanksgiving

None. My family had a Christmas tradition of watching Muppets Christmas Carol on Christmas Eve, but that kind of fizzled out when all of my siblings grew up and had families of their own. I'm the only one who keeps that alive.

I'll always & forever be plagued since April of 2007 when I watched the double feature of Grindhouse, that Eli Roth's "Thanksgiving" isn't an actual film to enjoy alongside the holiday.

 

 

 

That being said, saw earlier on Twitter that IF in fact you need your horror needs scratched for this specific holiday, technically "You're Next" works as a Thanksgiving flick!

I don't really have a "family" so to speak, just my mom, so normally we would just go to some other person's house and usually no one  would watch TV, it's mostly talking the whole time.

 

Recently post COVID it's just been me and my mom for holidays, but there is no ritual, I just bring a movie that I want to see that I think she might also enjoy.

Football is consistent. I didn't grow up with any specific movies, but my girlfriend did and has since introduced The Godfather as a post-dinner winding down watch, and it is exquisite. Currently watching it right now in fact.

The Lion's game is usually on in the background, but we never really watched movies on Thanksgiving. My Uncle used to bring A Christmas Story to Christmas before TBS started airing it all day. It's not one of my favorites.
