Favorite Christmas Movie

PostWed Dec 21, 2016 8:51 pm

Whether you're Christian, Jew or miscellaneous, there's nothing that says you can't enjoy a good Christmas movie.

For the longest time, I considered It's a Wonderful Life the all-time classic, but in the last few years the one movie that always gets watched in our house is Elf, and my wife and I end up watching Love, Actually at some point.

What about other people? What movie is a must watch at this time of year for you?

I'm not an avid Christmas movie lover, in fact the closest I can come to saying I truly enjoy a Christmas film is You've Got Mail and that really isn't all that Christmas-y. However, my dad began a tradition of watching A Christmas Story every year on TBS while they do their day-long marathon. I don't even particularly like the movie but I end up watching at least most of it every Christmas.

Not sure what I have against Christmas movies really, they just don't speak to me I guess. Alternatively, I love Christmas music.

Gotta admit I do love a good Christmas film, we also watched Elf and Love, Actually this Christmas :thumbup: and I agree they are definitely up there but I'd have to add Jingle All The Way, Home Alone and The Polar Express.

Goku, The Polar Express is such a great movie. My favorite is How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Jim Carrey's version. I have to watch it every year. Never gets old for me.

I'm something of a grinch about Saturnalia, but I will admit that I do actually enjoy Elf.

I think Trolls may belong on the list, though its not a Christmas movie. Still, they have Trollstice so I think that counts. Its probably one of the most honest holiday movies that will never get credit for saying what Christmas is really about: child sacrifice. (The Trolls getting eaten by The [Bilde]Bergen represents this.) It's actually a really infectious cute movie, though.

I don't watch 'Christmas movies'...except for this one:

A Charlie Brown Christmas is a 1965 animated television special based on the comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. Produced by Lee Mendelson and directed by Bill Melendez, the program made its debut on CBS on December 9, 1965. In the special, lead character Charlie Brown finds himself depressed despite the onset of the cheerful holiday season. Lucy suggests he direct a neighborhood Christmas play, but his best efforts are ignored and mocked by his peers. After Linus tells Charlie Brown about the true meaning of Christmas, Charlie Brown cheers up, and the Peanuts gang unites to celebrate the Christmas season.

The Linus' speech scene is so awesome, it's indescribable.
This one should definitely be on everybody's 'what to watch before I die'-list.
