Christmas Movies!

A Christmas Story – this movie is number one for a lot of people.
I don’t know why.

Christmas Vacation – notably quotably hilarious. I would love to see this in a theater with a bunch of hard core fans.

Die Hard – is this a Christmas movie or a movie set at Christmas time?
Yippie-Ki-Yay …

Elf – “Ow! Son of a Nutcracker!”

Ernest Saves Christmas – a low brow guilty pleasure, I’ll grant you, but I love this movie. Know whut I mean?

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas – the original, thank you very much! Although we’re going to see the latest one later today, so who knows? Maybe I’ll change my mind.

It’s a Wonderful Life – you matter.

Love Actually – a collection of love stories set at Christmas time.

Mixed Nuts – also a collection of love stories set at Christmas time!

Polar Express – worth it for the hot chocolate scene alone.

The Snowman – sublimemagicalrealismchildhoodfantasy.

White Christmas – the scene on the train where the four main characters sing those cascading vocal lines.
‘Snow, snow, snow, snow … ‘

Bonus two-fer:

A Christmas Carol – George C. Scott version. Although there’s never really been a bad version that I know of.

The Man Who Invented Christmas … earlier review here:
