Christmas Movies

We discussed Christmas albums the other day and you found out that I liked *NSync. Yes, I even put the “*”.

So, now we gotta decide the best Christmas movie of all time. My favorite is “It’s A Wonderful Life” because of all the awesome memories watching it every Christmas with the family. Love it.

The other three Christmas movies I can’t miss watching during the holidays are “Home Alone”, “Elf” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas”.

I will say that I absolutely cannot stand “A Christmas Story”. There I said it. I know some of you hate me now.

I can’t think of any religious Christmas movies that I love. Actually, I really can’t think of any religious movies that I watch during Christmas time. Missing the whole point on that one… Maybe.

With all the Christmas movies out there, which movie is your favorite one?

    Did you mean A Christmas Story? If so my opinion of you did drop a little 😉

    I agree with yours but I also love the Grinch (Original cartoon version), and all those stop motion specials like Rudolf.

      ha! yep. Changed

    I’m a huge fan of both “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” They both end up delivering good messages regarding Christmas without beating you over the head with them in my opinion. :)

      good stuff

    My favorites are ‘A Christmas Story’ (mainly for nostalgic reasons), ‘Elf’, and ‘Christmas with the Kranks’. I’ll usually watch ‘Christmas Vacation’ and ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ too. Depends on my mood.

    I prefer the funny/sentimental movies to the ones that are a little more serious.

    • jackalopekid

      cool man. gotta love Elf

    For years I was not a fan of Christmas movies. Now I have discovered 3 that I really really like: Elf, White Christmas, and Love Actually

    • jackalopekid

      What is White Christmas?

  • Lilenrgzrbunny

    I hate “It’s A Wonderful Life” but my top 3 would have to be “Christmas Vacation,” “Home Alone,” and “Polar Express.”

    • jackalopekid

    I could watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas cartoon in a loop from now until Christmas. I probably couldn’t make it through one full viewing of any other Christmas movie.

    • jackalopekid

      that’s definitely a good one too

  • darylhb

    Come on now, “Love Actually” has got to be THE absolute BEST Christmas romcom EVERRR!! :)

    • jackalopekid

      i dont even remember it to tell ya the truth

      • darylhb

        Say whaaat? It’s so memorable! And sooo quotable. Let me help you out:

        “You know, the thing about romance is… people only get together right at the very end.”
        or “Hiya kids. Here is an important message from your Uncle Bill. Don’t buy drugs. Become a pop star, and they give you them for free!”
        or “Let’s go get the s*** kicked out of us by love.”
        or maybe “I am Colin. God of Sex. I’m just on the wrong continent, that’s all.”

        Okay, maybe it’s a bit questionable. But heart-warming, nevertheless. 😉

          haha. it’s coming back to me now

    ‘A Christmas Story’ has become my all time favorite. I’m surprised nobody has mentioned ‘Miracle on 24th Street’ which is a classic.

    Two off-beat ones that I select that aren’t necessarily Christmas movies but to take place during Christmas are ‘Die Hard’ and ‘The Ref’ with Denis Leary and Kevin Spacey. The latter is absolutely hilarious.

    • jackalopekid

      forgot about miracle on 24th street. definitely a good one

  • Jeff Abel

    It’s A Wonderful Life tops the list – it’s a classic that you just have to watch every year. Elf is becoming a new family favorite as well. As for A Christmas Story – well, let’s just say our family is split on this one. It is my wife’s favorite, and when it goes into the DVD player you can bet I’m looking for something else to do : )
