Welcome to my 31 Days of Christmas movie marathon. This is a feature where I watch a different Christmas movie every day from now until Christmas. The rules are simple: The movie has to be something I haven’t already seen and I must watch at least one Christmas-themed movie a day from now until December 25th. They’ll be some bad ones and hopefully a lot of great ones. Why put myself through this? Because it’s a good way to catch up on a lot of Christmas movies and a good way to satisfy my OCD.

To award a movie with five platinum stars (the highest rating possible) means only one thing; a true work of ingenious perfection. The Yule Log, as long and repetitive as it is (over 24 hours), has this distinct honor.
There are many reasons as to why I call this movie “genius”, but the best reason is that it is the only movie I know of that I can leave for several hours and upon returning feel confident that I didn’t miss a damn thing. That’s unbelievable, right? Well, you best believe! I have been watching this fantastic flaming film every year on the same day and have yet to sit through the entire thing.

It’s hard to explain without spoiling the movie how this can be, but trust me when I tell you that watching every moment of this movie is not necessary when it comes to basking in its fiery flawlessness.
