"You'll shoot your eye out!" is one of the many memorable lines from 1983's "A Christmas Story," a movie that has memorably wormed its way into pop culture over the decades. Nearly 40 years later, we have a sequel called "A Christmas Story Christmas" that brings back most of the cast of the original to tell the story of the adult Ralphie trying to make a memorable Christmas for his own children in 1973.

Not to be outdone, Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell team up for a Christmas comedy musical adaptation of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" that's called "Spirited".

In this episode, Fan Effect host Andy Farnsworth is joined by KSL-TV's Dan Spindle to discuss how these new films rank among other similar Christmas classics, and whether or not they'll be joining each of their annual Christmas movie rotation.
