This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Santa With Muscles (1996)
Ohmigod the gods are kind to me: Santa With Muscles. A Christmas movie with Hulk Hogan and Ed Begley Jr.? Forget about it. Seriously though, a star performance by Begley as the villain who just wants to close down that pesky orphanage. Director John Murlowski honed his skills on this mammajamma before he directed Richie Rich's Christmas Wish. He definitely traded up.
Believe it or not this fine feature did open up in the theaters. It played for one week at the Keizer cinemas a month before they shut down. Connection? You be the judge. Hulk Hogan, you're santa-rific!
P.S.- This movie is deep in the IMDB's bottom 100, number 39 to be exact. I like it though.

This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
V/A - Christmas on Death Row (1996)
I would say this album is about 90 percent crap, but the good 10 percent is pretty damn good. Appearances by Snoop and Daz and Kurupt bring all the holiday cheer straight from the ghetto. Then there's a bunch of traditional xmas songs sung by some super wuss dude.
And the cover of the album rules.
