View Full Version : Favorite Christmas Movie?

My Top ones:

A Christmas Carol (George C. Scott is still the best Scrooge)
Miracle on 34th Street (Original of course)
Christmas Vacation (ah, Chevy you still slay me!)
The Grinch (Carrey, great job)
Home Alone 1 & 2 (ONLY!)
Elf (haaa!)
A Christmas Story (A boy and his BB gun, why else!)
The Santa Clause (Allen really looks good in the suit, Arr, Arr, Arrr!)
The Ref (It's what it's all about!)
Charlie Brown Christmas (ahhhh, the memories that just make you warm & fuzzy)

I can't come up with 10 favorites, but I watch Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story religiously around Christmas time.

I love the Rudolph and other claymation holiday films too.

and all claymation

Live Action: Jingle All the Way.

It's so goofy and heartwarming. I like going shopping on Christmas Eve because of it. You go out to buy gifts for your family, and you know you're going to be with them that night and the next day. It is beautiful.

Rankin & Bass: Rudolph's Shiny New Year.

Oh man, a knight and a cave man, a kid with big ears, Rudolph, and Father Time. It's like Chrono Trigger.

Honorable Mention: The Year Without A Santa Claus.

This is honestly pretty bad, but the Misers are the shizznite. I love the McKean/Fierstein duet in the live-action remake. The rest of it is unwatchable, but the same could be said of the original, so no harm, no foul.

- Caillou's Holiday Movie
- Arthur's Perfect Christmas
- Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Merry Christmas
- Spot's Magical Christmas

Honorable mention:
- Franklin and the Green Knight (not really a Christmas movie, but wth. Haven't gotten around grokking eBay for Franklin's Magical Christmas)

Not that many, my top 4 are:

1. A Christmas Story - "I Double Dog Dare Ya!"
2. It's a Wonderful Life - What can I say, I like the classics
3. Christmas Vacation - I ROFL every time I see Chevy Chase launch from the slope.
4. Scrooged - the modern day version of A Christmas Carol

I used to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas, but ended up missing it a couple of years. Unfortunately, now that I try to watch it, it's not the same.
The same goes for the Rudolph series, and Frosty the Snowman.

Jingle All The Way is definitely a favourite.


The Family Stone is another good one I can think of. It's not a classic but I can't think of many Christmas films I like. Pretty much any of the Christmas specials they play around this time of year, especially the Home Improvement and Friends ones!

Manic Street Preacher

I did like Bad Santa, but I hate most Christmas movies. I don't get how there's such a market for them. They're usually garbage.

12-11-2007, 07:33 AM
The only movie I make an actual effort to watch around Christmas is Scrooged.

12-18-2007, 05:45 AM
I always watch that one around Christmas too. It's one of my favourites.

In addition to Christmas Vacation, Home Alone 1, Gremlins (first film) and Love Actually (I love Bill Nighy's performance in that one!)

I've never quite gotten around to watching Miracle on 34th Street, but definitely plan to see it this year.

Xiahou Dun, Neg, and Seru_Kai (and anyone else who mentioned those movies) just won 100,000,000 additional points of awesomeness for their taste in Christmas movies :D National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is my all-time favorite, with A Christmas Story coming in close second! But everything mentioned is amazing! You guys rock :D

Btw, what channel is A Christmas Story on? I gotta catch it!!

Btw, what channel is A Christmas Story on? I gotta catch it!!

I'm 99% sure it's TBS! That 1% is TNT, which is basically the same damn thing.

Check TBS at 8pm EST tonight ;) (as in.....RIGHT NOW!)
