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?
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 … ‘
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:
