THE SANTA CLAUSE 2


2002 DIRECTOR: Michael Lembeck May contain spoilers! Evil Santa (Tim Allen) delivers coal: The real Santa (Tim Allen) is about to lose his powers if he fails to enact the second ‘Santa Clause’, ‘The Mrs Clause’: Somehow, this sequel is better than the 1994 original, probably because it does not begin with Santa’s untimely death at the hands our…

STAR WARS: EWOKS (TV)”THE CRIES OF THE TREES”


1985 DIRECTOR: Raymond Jafelice May contain spoilers!
