Best Christmas Movie

SpkSpk Senior MemberPosts: 3,966 Senior Member
Opinions please.
What do you guys think is the best Christmas movie you've seen to date.
Anything from It's a Wonderful Life with James Stewart to Scooged with Bill Murray.
Of the 6 versions of A Christmas Carol I've seen I'm kinda partial to the Alastair Sim version. No offense to Patrick Stewart, George C. Scott or Disney.
So folks, what's the best Christmas movie you guys enjoy over the holidays.
For those that don't celebrate the occasion, what's the best movie you enjoy over this holiday season?

    Vacation
    Christmas Story
    Apparently free thought is punished, and conformity is required, while peckerless cowards run the show.

    Huh, never seen Bad Santa.

    Otherwise Christmas Story or Christmas Vacation

    I like Christmas Vacation and a A Christmas Story.  Home Alone is not bad, either.

    We watched The Christmas Chronicles with the grandson last week.  It was ok, but has an "almost" religious undertone to it.  I guess it was the "True Believer" part that makes me think this.  But, the jailhouse scene with the rock band makes it worth the watch.

    #3 and #4 ... Both are classic for different reasons.
    I think everyone knows why A Christmas Story is a classic but Bad Santa should be on anyone's list if they have a naughty side! No offense to Billy Bob but Tony Cox makes that movie work, that and a funny as H/naughty script. 👍

      If you like Santa Claus The Movie, you might also like The Santa Clause (clause, as in a contract). It also tries to explain the magic of Santa Claus in a charming/comedic way while still remaining family friendly.
    It features Tim Allen as Santa Claus.

    He mellowed out towards the end though.

    I figured Krampus, A Holiday Horror Story or Silent Night, Deadly Night might be on your list also. 😉

    Btw, has anyone seen The Reliant yet? The movie not a space ship. 😏
    It's on my list of movies to watch but I just haven't gotten around to it yet.
    Anyone... Anyone...

    It was "Die Hard" until Bruce Willis came out and announced that it is not a Christmas movie.

    It's a Bruce effing Willis movie.
