Home Alone

Brayson87 said...

A Christmas Story will always be king.

Brayson87 said...

However Die Hard and Gremlins are good runners up.

Do Tell said...

Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol

Todd said...

Gremlins is my favorite!

ONE NIGHT IN PARIS

sandybrook said...

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

TeeHee@U said...

It's A Wonderful Life for sure. I see it every year and it still manages to make me cry.

Thia said...

Christmas Vacation!

CBGB said...

A Very Murray Christmas

Mystique99 said...

Love Actually!

Freebird said...

A Christmas Story

Moose said...

Should have done TV Christmas specials this year, Enty, to change it up. I'd love to see who wins between Charlie Brown, Rudolph, Frosty and a few others.


I gotta go with the 1951 A Christmas Carol - with the Alastair Sim Scrooge

Do Tell said...

It's A Wonderful Life is one of those movies that, like Casablanca, I've never sat down and watched and at this point, I am incapable of watching it with an open mind anymore because it's been parodied and invoked in so many ways, so heavily, in so many different mediums for decades, that I'm sick of it before I've even seen it.

I Know Nothing said...

Love Actually

MissDavie said...

A Christmas Story.

Alf Landon said...

Trading Places

Count Jerkula said...

Bad Santa

as for Xmas cartoon, OG Grinch

HeffalumpsAndWoozles said...

It's a Wonderful Life, and Bing Crosby's White Christmas will always be my go-to's.

A Christmas Story

VC said...

It’s a Wonderful Life

longtimereader said...

Die Hard Obvs.

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

It's a Wonderful Life.

Miss Demeanor said...

The Grinch

Florin said...

Here's my list:
Shazam! (It's set during Christmas...)
Anna and the Apocalypse
Die Hard
Gremlins
A Christmas Story
Elf
White Christmas
Krampus

Rosie riveter said...

Curious how many forms of this question we can get? You're tired out Enty. Fucksake

StubblyHubble said...

Jingle all the Way
Krampus
Die Hard

BBore said...

A Christmas Story.

Vita said...

Ugh, I love both. Like A Christmas Carol, It's A Wonderful Life has the more obvious takeaway of appreciating your life and all of its blessings. But, A Christmas Story is just a gem.

As of yet, no one has mentioned Elf. I adore that movie, and confess to tearing up more than once as Santa's sleigh lifts into the sky!

Original cartoon Grinch is wonderful. Christmas Vacation always makes me happy, and I love that my dad loved it.💓

So, sorry, I guess I screwed up the vote!

A Christmas Story

Dennis said...

The Star Wars Holiday Special -1978

Mooney said...

All of these stories are easily a top placer. However, I’d like to be recognized as nominating the worst Christmas movie ever.

Christmas vacation 2: cousin eddies island. I forced myself to watch it including the directors notes. Not one laugh. Come on Enty! Give me my 15 minutes! :)

SeijnSei said...

A Christmas Story.

Simon said...

Saw it’s a wonderful life on the big screen yesterday. Took my neighbor who unbelievably had never seen it before. She was crying. Nothing tops that movie IMHO

Miss_proper said...

Christmas Vacation and Die Hard.

hothotheat said...

Elf

AuntBee said...

It's a Wonderful Life
A Christmas Story
A Christmas Carol (George C. Scott version)
Home Alone

Love them all but IAWL always tops the list.

cocktailhour said...

A Christmas Story!
Love Actually is actually sad and kind of offensive. The lesson is: If you're single on Christmas, you're a loser. I feel embarrassed for Andrew Lincoln when I watch it.

Megley said...

Mine never changes--The Hebrew Hammer. Andy Dick kills Santa Claus, brain-washes kids with VHS tapes of "It's A Wonderful Life." I brainwash my friends with THH.

gauloise said...

Elf

splatford said...

bad Santa

lintmag said...

Have seen them all so many times - Miracle on 34th St is good and It's a Wonderful Life always will reel me in.

IndieRaga said...

Home Alone.
Both 1&2

Jed's Friend and Supporter said...

The Perfect Gift by Jefferson Moore of Kelly FilmWorks

Hotbox said...

This was mine too... until I met Chevy Chase. I still like those movies, but not as much as before.

Hotbox said...

Bad Santa!

judithannegg said...

The Little Drummer Boy with Greer Garson narrating. Trust me everyone should watch it regardless of religion. I swear I will not cry, but as soon as that drummer drums away at the end, I'm all tears. It's only 25ish minutes long

AbbyRock said...

@judithanneegg- I always looked forward to The Little Drummer Boy but have not seen it listed for years.

Enty, maybe have a # 1 for drama and a #1 for comedy.

It's a Wonderful Life is #1 for me. It embodies the spirit of Christmas. A man does nice things for others and when his life takes a downturn, those people come through for him. Wish NBS had not bought the rights. Used to see how many times I could watch it every year.

A Christmas Story is hilarious and fun. We can all identify with Ralphie and his daydreams and machinations.

E said...

@Do Tell I love Magoo's Christmas Carol! Great choice and I vote for this too.

Along with "It's a Wonderful Life", which really is the Christmas movie to end all Christmas movies

E said...

There is also a beautiful cartoon called "The Snowman"; if you haven't seen it you will love it. It's melancholy and happy at the same time. The music is beautiful

marjorie said...

I'm sure that I will be the only person nominating this movie: BABETTE'S FEAST.

For the best Christmas movie not using subtitles: A Christmas Story.

V said...

I have a soft spot for Scrooged...

Freckles said...

A Christmas Story

Fiendish Man said...

Jingle All The Way

M said...

Prep & Landing

T. W. said...

I don’t care for Christmas movies but I did enjoy Bad Santa & have yet to see Elf.

MissPeach said...

A Christmas Story...hands down.

Me Again said...

elf

Vince said...

TRADING PLACES and DIE HARD.

Ann said...

My vote again this year- National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

DarylsBigFan said...

I do not acknowledge any holiday.
Tens of thousands of Americans are missing in this country.
For them to come home-- to have answers-- that is what we want.

Law_De_Da said...

It's A Wonderful Life.Followed by White Christmas.Then Home Alone.Finally - Planes,Trains,and Automobiles.

AbbyRock said...

Gentle Breeze, I agree that Alistair Sim's A Christmas Carol is one of the best Christmas movies!

Forgot that I also love The Bishop's Wife- the story is cute but Cary Grant and David Niven in the same movie-yum!

Do Telle said...

Christmas Vacation for sure!

Unknown said...

I do stand behind A Christmas Story, but I'm going with Christmas Vacation this year. Chevy may be an ass, but he makes me laugh!
