The only 2 films that are required for me to watch at this time of year are "It's a Wonderful Life" and "A Charlie Brown Christmas".

So far, we've watched Home Alone 1&2, Elf, The Santa Claus 3, & on Christmas Eve, we'll all settle down to watch The Polar Express, the kids love it.

I watch It's A Wonderful Life every year. It's such a lovely movie, to me, it just doesn't feel like Christmas if I haven't watched it. LOL.

ROADSIDE PROPHETS it may not be a Holiday flick but I think it may be one of the best movies EVER. It stars John Doe and Adam Horovitz (from the Beastie Boys)

Love Actually, A Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, and Scrooged are musts each year.

I also like to throw Bad Santa into the mix.

The Muppet Christmas Carol
Die Hard (it counts, it's set during Christmas )
Elf
Christmas Vacation

And I guess A Christmas Story, but I don't go out of my way to watch the whole movie every year.



Am I the only person that wasn't impressed with Love Actually? It's a Wonderful Life, too, now that I think about it

.... What?! How dare you question It's A Wonderful Life. Blasphemy!

I dunno... I know it drags in some parts, but I just love the overall message of the movie. It restores my faith in humanity, even if that feeling doesn't last for long. I can't explain it. lol.

I've never seen It's A Wonderful Life (I've seen bits and pieces of it, but never the whole thing).

The best Christmas special ever was "A Muppet Family Christmas". The one where they all go to Fozzie's mother's farm house .

I'm with you. I did not get the big to-do about Love Actually. My folks have it on DVD, so I suppose it may be thrown into the mix, but I thought it was terrible. Schmaltzy, unfunny, and a bunch of characters whose stories made me want to puke more than go "Awwww." Call me a grinch if you must, but it was not for me!

It's not that great of a movie, but it has just about every one of my favorite actors (namely Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, and Colin Firth), which is why I love it. The Kiera Knightly and guy-from-The-Office vignettes are annoying.

Glad I'm not alone
