#1 It's a Wonderful Life...just because it represents despite how awful things can be....you still matter more than you think :D


But, Home Alone 1 and 2 and Gremlins are awesome as well.

momo said...

ELF IS GREAT. SO IS WONDERFUL LIFE. SORRY ALL CAPS.

Brayson87 said...

@Do Tell, I highly recommend giving it a watch, if only so you'll understand the references to it that have popped up everywhere over the years.

Like, you probably have no idea what the whole leg shaped lamp thing is about, do you? It's actually a very prestigious trophy.

Do you know about BB gun safety or how soap tastes? That movie will teach you all.

Florin said...

My 10:
Home Alone
A Christmas Story
Die Hard
Gremlins
It's A Wonderful Life

If you're only going to count one vote, count it for Krampus.

A Christmas Story

Do Tell said...

i get the Christmas Story references only because I've seen and heard so much of them over the years, again, it's like Casablanca and It's A Wonderful Life..pervasive enough to know the movie without having seen it. I've seen a few clips, just not ever sat down and watched the movie.

I was in Cleveland recently and one of that area's celebrated attractions is the house from that movie, which I guess I might have gone to if I was an ACS fan.

“A Christmas Story” gets my vote. It wouldn’t feel right not to watch it every year. 🎄
“Jingle All the Way” is my #2. For some reason we watch it every year, too. And then I spend the next week talking like Arnold. 😅

Alister Sims A Christmas Carol

stig2578 said...

Great one. Alistair SIM was a great actor

stig2578 said...

No Silent Night, Deadly Night or Black Christmas or even Planes Trains and Automobiles?

Out of those Trading Places (just for Dan Ackroyd and the fish on the bus) and Alistair SIM as Scrooge.
