Everyone has their list. But ours is better. Because we said so.
Not feeling the holiday spirit? Buck tradition and watch a few Not Christmas Christmas Movies on Vudu this weekend.
Die Hard, Gremlins, Lethal Weapon, Iron Man 3 and Krampus definitely fit the bill. Yeah, yeah, we know everyone talks about them. But it doesn’t make them any less fun to watch. Relax, it’s Christmas.
Hopeless romantics can also get in on the action with watch Bridget Jones Diary (I heard she had a baby), While You Were Sleeping (stalking before stalking was cool – jk stalking is never cool), Just Friends, Edward Scissorhands, and even Rent – in a non-traditional love story kind of way.
Or maybe you didn’t make the nice list this year. Meh, keep the trend alive (consistency is key!) with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang or In Bruges. Or even Eyes Wide Shut (or wide open, Kubrick, you sly dog). Hey, it starts at a Christmas party. Just like Die Hard. Are we seriously not doing “phrasing” anymore?
Trading Places (insert joke about this being a Santa-Con) is always a good for non-Christmas related laughs, and let’s not forget Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy if you feel like getting all intellectual over some eggnog.
But whatever you watch, have fun, be safe, and have a Merry Christmas Vudu fans!

New to Movies On Us – December Update

We’ve added the first four titles in the Paranormal Activity series, so you can get four times the frights for free. You’ll also find Austin Powers in Goldmember (Toit, very toit!), Ocean’s Twelve, Space Jam (Celebrate the 20th Anniversary!), and favorites like Legally Blonde and Rain Man (Definitely, definitely free).
Other notable additions and blasts from the past include The Lake House, Empire of the Sun, Star Trek: Nemesis, Navy Seals (#tigerblood #winning), All Dogs Go to Heaven, and UHF (Weird Al!).

(It should go without saying, but we’re not advocating you watch all 60. Or that you’ll get anything if you do. Other than our undying adulation and +1000 internets.)
Ask an artist: Q&A session on animating Finding Dory
Recently, we gave Vudu viewers the opportunity to ask Jason Deamer, Character Art Director at Pixar, their questions about animating Finding Dory.
From animation technology to deciding how Dory’s parents looked, we had plenty of great questions. We’ve got a couple of the questions below, and you can check out the complete question and answer session here.
Q: Did you have to watch fish swimming in slow motion to figure out how to make their swimming so accurate and to capture all the details?
A: Yes. That’s exactly what we did. But we also combined that with what we learned from our fish expert, who also happened to be an expert in hydrodynamics. He explained to us exactly how fish move their fins and locomote through liquid.
Q: Do you get the script before you work on the design or do you just get a rough plot overview of the story?
A: It happens both ways. Sometimes I’ll get lucky and get script pages, and sometimes I’ll even have an audio performance from whomever they’ve had do the voice. In some cases, like say on “Ratatouille,” I just had the premise, which was – it’s going to be a rat in a kitchen, so draw rats.
Feeling inspired? You’ve still got time to draw your best Dory and win some great prizes. Enter by tweeting your drawing with #VUDUdoodle before 10/31/16. Learn more here.
