Perhaps You Should Jingle All Your Way To the New Year
Its the most wonderful time of the year....... With the kids jingle belling.. And everyone telling you "Be good of cheer".... Its the most wonderful time of the year...
OOoohHh YEeeaaAhH ! The time is now the chilling, exciting & thrilling winter season is in the Aiiirr, the holidays are here and the cheer is everywhere ! Put on your gear, keep aside your fear, face the winter & fight off the chill & boast in the frost, there are a hundred ways to enjoy your holiday season and have fun without the sun...!
For those of you who are feeling sloppy & rusty due to the shivering cold should charge up & get in spirit by watching "Jingle All The Way" featuring your favorite Big Guy or should I say the Original Big Guy Arnold Schwarzenegger in a fantastic & fun role & ofcourse who can forget his compliment the funky & cranky Sinbad the Big Bad Mailman. These two Arnie & SinBad had such a fantastic chemistry that it did wonders in the movie "jINGLE aLL tHE wAY".
Unlike the WWE's pathetic & lame version of this year called Jingle all the way 2 featuring Larry the Freakin Wire Guy & a Comic Relief of a wrestler called a Marella, it is a joke they should not have named it so and ridiculed the legacy of the Original Jingle All The Way, anyway bogus things happen regardless. Coming back to the genuine showdown it was a spectacular family film being funny, hilarious, extra-ordinary with elements of cheer, goodwill & family spirit & also criticizing some social drawbacks & negativity of consumerism which exists in the modern society of today in a fun way.
Arnie the Big Guy was some sort of a businessman, sales manager or a typical corporate agent or whatever as he attends to the calls of his customers & calls all of them his number 1 customer & went so far as to even call his pretty wife too, reflecting the mindset of typical salesmanship based on false flattery. The Big Guy's little son may have been the chosen one in some other iconic Space Opera but in this fun frenzy the cute little kid is son of Arnie and the kid is absolutely captivated by the flashy TV shows, characters & toys specifically the TURBOMAN.
Arnie had a perfect little family but he used to neglect his wife & kid being much busy in his work & profession as with most of people today, so in the ongoing holiday season to keep up the Big Guy promises his son the most popular toy the Turboman action figure for Christmas & so begins the quest of the Big Guy to get maybe the most sacred toy of them all. As Arnie hits the market he meets a Big Blue Mailman who was also on the same quest of getting Turboman for his son, the cranky Postman was well aware of the evils & negative methodology of corporate & media culture & the senseless consumerism as he tried to explain it to Arnie but the Big Guy was dumb founded & least concerned.
The Toy turned out to be short in the market and the Big Guy & the Big Blue both were ridiculed, laughed upon & embarrassed for just a damn toy as Arnie realizes what a dad has to go through for getting a toy for his kid captivated by the magical TV advertisements. Arnie even met a Santa Claus who promised for him what he wants but the Santa turned out to be a crook as he led Arnie to his underground facility having a whole lot of Santas in all sizes & shapes involved in scam christmas toys & items, there are some mean fraudulent who even take advantage of religious festivities, people's emotions & commercialize. Anyway after realizing the Scam of the Santas Arnie fights his way out of the mess in which he even confronted & fought a Giant Santa or more precisely the Bigshow Santa.
Meanwhile the Big Blue also had hard times in getting the toy as the paths of the Big Guy & Big Blue collides again & again in their quests their rivalry grew, sometimes they team up & mostly both of them tried to trip & out do each other in getting the prize, they went through a lot of troubles & ongoing nuisances & were almost on the verge of ruining their holiday season & perhaps their family lives until their rivalry would lead to the ultimate showdown at the annual parade on the eve of Christmas where fate would place the Big Guy in the gears of Turboman himself to perform heroism against his arch rival the Big Blue in the gears of the villainous Dementor. In the end all ends well in the true spirits of goodwill for everyone including the Big Blue, the Big Guy realizes his family values & his kid realizes that his Dad is the Real Turboman.
Consumerism is not evil in itself until fueled by greed, & done to an extent beyond genuine needs, rather one should share or give away in good spirits to those who cannot afford for that would bring you true spiritual comfort from within. And Remember your true prize is not the hot or cool items promoted in flashy advertisements but your own modesty & dear ones. Value your family, relatives & friends with sincerity, & be cheerful & share goodwill, respect, love, & care not only in this season but in all seasons...!
