A Christmas Story is great for laughs, but my real favorites are:

A Christmas Carol (1984) w/ Geo. C. Scott as Scrooge

and

It's a Wonderful Life

I watched Scrooged last night. I'd never seen it. Myeh... it was OK. The best thing about it was Bobcat Goldthwaite. Whatever happened to that guy, anyway?

The image link is for The Essential Films: Christmas in Connecticut


We love the two Home Alone Films!

Did you know there were 5 Home Alone movies in the franchise now!?!

The last two were ABC TV movies: Home Alone 4 and Home Alone 5.



We just watched the first movie Diehard in the Diehard Film Series last night!

Ah, the things that can happen on a Christmas Eve! Diehard 2 is a year later and also on Christmas Eve.

As much as we enjoyed Home Alone and Home Alone 2, after watching ~1/2 hour of Home Alone 4 (TV Movie 2002) - IMDb, we turned the channel.  It just seemed creepy and rather like a poor knock-off.

Why isn't this topic called " Christmas Movies " ?
While I wouldn't enjoy it nearly as much now, 'Die Harder' probably my fav xmas movie with 'Scrooged' and 'Nightmare before Christmas' close. And I would also list the first 2 'Good Eats' xmas themed shows.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

Just found this when searching on Winter Holiday movies...which is pretty much where I was going too originally with this topic.

What are Your Favorite Winter Holiday Themed Movies? - Rope of Silicon

Quote

I wasn't quite sure how to properly word the headline for this post considering I want to make sure you understand I am talking about the season pretty much running from Thanksgiving to Christmas, but I also want to make sure you know the film itself doesn't have to necessarily be about the holidays.

He has a great list of movies too:

Quote

Take Die Hard for instance, it's set during Christmas time, but it isn't a Christmas film. However, it fits in with what I am looking for here. Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, Eyes Wide Shut,Fanny and Alexander, Batman Returns, Gremlins, The Thin Manand When Harry Met Sally are other examples. ****, I would even sayRocky IV and Lethal Weapon count. As a matter of fact, I would say the non-Christmas, Christmas movies are the more interesting additions. How about The Shining or even Psycho?

Then, of course, I personally love films such as Love, Actually and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. And we can add Edward Scissorhands, A Christmas Story and Elf to the conversation as well as The Family Stone, White Christmas, Home Alone, A Miracle on 34th Street, Scrooged, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Polar Express, The Ref, Bad Santa and The Muppet's Christmas Carol.

Gremlins! How could I have forgotten Gremlins! It's a Christmas tradition at our house to watch Gremlins over Christmas Holiday season.
