A new full lenght feature rare exports film is coming.

I have posted about this original once or twice here.

The original was awesome, the second was good, I don't know if I will like the third, Santa here seems to be portryed as evil. IN the short films he was just protryed as a wild animal (neither good nor bad).

Youtube link for those who don't want to install iTunes, iTunes helper apps, Bonjour, Apple's updater and god only knows what other bloated crap Apple has tied Quicktime to of late.

Right, because Flash isn't a bloated sack of poo. [Wink]

Full Disclosure: I clicked the YouTube link in preference to the Apple link. But I couldn't resist the snarcasm.

Hmm...so I greatly enjoyed the original short when it came out. I hadn't seen the 'safety video' until this evening on YouTube...but I also enjoyed it.

The trailer and the full-length? Meh.

I fear it seems a bit 'too hollywood.' At the very least, I loved the narration and soundtrack of the 'originals.' The whole tone of it, the colo[u]ring of it...it had a wonderful air of mystery. This is just a bit too flash. :/

That being said, I might drag some friends to it just to mess with their heads. [Razz]

At around 8% the size of the Quicktime installer, Flash is more like an anorexic sack of security holes.

Think of it this way: Quicktime is like Divine and Flash is like a prostitute with a serious meth addiction. Neither is what you want and you'll regret it the next morning, but they're both easily available and you're probably drunk enough.

Hah! You said "security holes", then proceeded to talk about a prostitute. [Big Grin]
