    It was my understanding that the Alistair Sim version of "A Christmas Carol" was widely regarded as the best version made. I know it is my personal favorite. I never particularly cared for the George C. Scott version. The recent version with Patrick Stewart is not bad, but I think that's because I like his acting abilities. Of course, the sentimental favorite is "Mickey's Christmas Carol"!!

    That said, I catch A Christmas Carol several times leading up to Christmas and I watch A Christmas Story five times or so!!

    Nobody has mentioned "Home Alone"?

    No, I don't watch that one, or any of the others. I try my best to avoid seeing any Christmas movies. Even more, I want to avoid hearing those damned dogs barking Jingle Bells or the cats meowing White Christmas. Amazingly, for Christmas 2003 my efforts have been successful.

    Die Hard and Lethal Weapon of course...

    I might do Gremlins this year as well, I haven't seen it in years. Is there a decent DVD presentation for this film?

    "Gremlins" presentation on the special edition DVD is wonderful. Not really any problems there.

    I'll be watching:
    National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
    Mixed Nuts
    Santa Claus: The Movie
    Scrooged
    A Charlie Brown Christmas
    How the Grinch Stole Christmas (animated)
    Home Alone
    Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
    Die Hard
    Die Hard 2: Die Harder
    Gremlins
    Elf
    A Christmas Story
    Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas

    I'm excluding The Ref only because I've never seen it in its entirity.

    On a side note, I'll also be reading Skipping Christmas by John Grisham because enen though I liked the film Christmas with the Kranks, I don't know if I'll have the chance to see it again before Christmas or not.
