One of the best films I've seen in a while. From its original and funny story to its all-star cast of actors, I enjoyed this movie from start to finish.

"Christmas Eve. Ho ho fucking ho!"

At its heart, The Ice Harvest is a contemporary film noir, and a brutal thriller with splashes of black humour throughout. Director Harold Ramis is perhaps best remembered for the bespectacled nerd in Ghostbusters. Ramis made more of an impression as a director when he helmed such films as Groundhog Day and Analyze This.

Unfortunately, in spite of all those good promises, it ... read more

"Format: DVD Viewing: 2nd Thoughts: I was rifling through my DVD collection the other night, looking for some holiday fair when I stumbled across the Ice Harvest. Don't recall much about it other than it was a Christmas crime-comedy with Cusack and Billy Bob. So I figured this would be a solid choice. Man was I wrong. This is like a Coen Bros movie if you strip everything that makes it great from it. It just meanders along and nothing really exciting happens for the most part and worst of all, a "
