What’s your favorite Christmas movie?
« on: December 25, 2017, 06:29:56 PM »
Been watching Christmas movies all day and feeling all sorts of warm and fuzzy.

I love all of the these, but A Christmas Story will always hold a special place in my heart on this day. “Oh fudge!!!”

Was hard to vote against Home Alone though.... (deciding which is better, 1 or 2 is a whole nother thread!)

Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

Gremlins is an overlooked classic.

This and Bad Santa is funny as hell also.

We also watched Batman Returns as an x-mas movie this year.

Die Hard 

Home Alone sucks. 

Also, It's a Beautiful Life, lol.

Aslo, Scotty, the movie is called 'It's a Wonderful Life.  :police:


And here's good video explaining how  that thing wound up being one of the most played holiday movies.

Phoebe Cates' story about her dad in the chimney is so fucked up.

Even worse than the masturbating Lincoln story from Gremlins II.

I voted for Christmas Story, mostly on account of the childhood nostalgia. 

I'll also mention Bad Santa as a new-ish favorite.

Beautiful.... Wonderful.... same difference!

Gremlins is an overlooked classic.

Good call. I forgot that had a Christmas thing happening

Home Alone sucks. 

Hot take! Also.... really? Sucks? Like, not a well made, full-rounded, enjoyable movie for kids and adults of all ages?!

Bad Santa, goddammit.

I enjoyed it. As I did Elf.... Jingle all the Way was a banger back in the day too. Just didn’t think any of those stood the test of time.

Bad Santa, goddammit.

My vote of 'Other' was for Bad Santa. Mrs. Santa's Sister is so hot!

Elf is the best.  Trailer Park Boys Xmas episode is also a favorite, but it's not really a full movie.
