The original B&W "Christmas in Conneticut"
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!!
Christmas story or The Ref which is a good funny anti-Christmas movie.
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.
We've taken to watching A Christmas Story for the past several years.
It's not a Christmas movie but my wife and I watch Toy Story every Christmas eve. It has been our tradition for the past 5 or so years.
Christmas Vacation The Ref Bad Santa Scrooge (1970 musical) Charlie Brown Chrsitmas Elf
Christmas Vacation Die Hard Lethal Weapon Scrooged
Every Christmas Eve and Christmas it's Die Hard then Lethal Weapon.
A Christmas Story (already watched)
A Garfield Christmas (already watched)
Scrooged (Another excellent job by Bill Murray)
Die Hard 2: Die Harder (think that's Chrismtas as well)
The Ref (good call on that one)
Santa Claus the Movie
The Santa Clause (reminds me; I still have to check to see if I have this or if the ex gf took it)
Sometimes I do watch Lethal Weapon, but I watched that a few months ago and I can only take those movies every so often. Last time I watched LW, I felt really underwhelmed.
Now that's SCARY! I came into this thread to list the movies I watch, and it is the exact same as Jordan's.
Lots. I am a Christmas movie junkie. There's a list of ones I watched as a kid that I find myself watching every year:
Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeed
Frosty The Snowman
Dr. Suess' How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Little Drummer Boy
Fat Albert Christmas
Little Rascals Christmas
Jack Frost (NOT the Michael Keaton movie)
The Night They Saved Christmas
Miracle on 34th Street
It's A Wonderful Life
Mickey's Christmas Carol (thanks to Mickey Mouse in Living Color V2!)
and my favorite....A Charlie Brown Christmas
Nada - yeah call me The Grinch!
A CHRISTMAS CAROL/SCROOGE (1951) A CHRISTMAS CAROL (1984) SANTA CLAUS (1959) SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS (1964) MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET (1947) Also a second (3-D) screening of THE POLAR EXPRESS with my niece and nephews.
f**k me santa!
f**k me santa!
f**k me santa!
you figure out which movie i'm talkin' about...
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?
I havent seen Die Hard of Legal Wreckin in a while. I just might have to add to my list.
"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.
