"Charlie Brown Christmas" is a perfect example of the limit of my nostalgia. You see, I *did* grow up watching it but it never really made any kind of impression, especially compared to "Mickey's Christmas Carol" (still my favorite adaptation) or "The Grinch". I did always like the music though and while the soundtrack is pretty lightweight, it still deserves its rep as one of the best Xmas albums of all time. In fact, it used to be my favorite until I heard that Ellington version of "The Nutcracker Suite".
Glad you dug "Out of the Past". Pretty sure I posted this the last time we discussed it but just in case- https://rateyourmusic.com/list/hellaguru/noir-you-satisfied/
Haven't watched the "South Park" movie in quite awhile (possibly not since it was originally released but I'm not positive) but I always thought it was basically as good as the show's better seasons and that the fact that they could curse actually helped their style of comedy. The "kick the baby" and throwing up on Wendy gags were always lame and Big Gay Al was probably the lamest character from the classic early period. Talk about dated- oooh he's gay and his name is Big Gay Al = comedy gold. Always liked Shelley Marsh though. We all knew girls like her, didn't we? Anyway, I've mentioned this before but I first saw the movie in the theater in Canada while visiting my relatives. So not only did I get to experience "Uncle ####er" in the presence of my uptight uncle, I also got to be one of the only Americans (along w/ my dad) in a theater full of Canadians watching a film that constantly rips on Canada. They generally seemed to be good sports about it but there were definitely some Canada jokes that just me and my dad laughed at.
