What movie is Christmas incomplete without?

What movies really make your christmas? I,for one, don’t feel Christmassy at all without seeing “A Christmas Story”. What about you? :mad: :stuck_out_tongue: :mad: :stuck_out_tongue: :mad: :stuck_out_tongue: :mad: :stuck_out_tongue: :mad: :stuck_out_tongue: :mad: :stuck_out_tongue:

Three words: Home Alone marathon.

I heartily endorse this (A Christmas Story) event and/or product.

It’s a Wonderful Life.

“Marry Chrushmush, Bedford Fawls!”


Drat and bad words! I was gonna say A Christmas Story.

Wait, I can still say it. So there.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is another one, though.

Achenar, do you mean all three?!? :eek:

Christmas Story!
It’s a Wonderful Life!
Miracle on 34th Street (1947 version)!
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation!

So far, two down, two to go!

How The Grinch Stole Christmas, as read by Boris Karloff (or even Vincent Price, just not Walter Matthau :))

Die Hard, the greatest Christmas action-adventure flick ever!

Santa Clause Conquers the Martians
Santa Clause
Mexican movie from about 1968 with Merlin and Pitch
Grinch Who Stole Christmas cartoon not the pointless live action crap.

A BlackAdder Christmas Carol, of course!

interface2x nailed my list exactly. I’d only add one non-movie as required viewing: The Charlie Brown Christmas Special. Worth it for Linus’ reading of the Christmas story if nothing else – I don’t know why, but that gets me every time.

Laurel & Hardy’s March of the Wooden Soldier (babes in toyland)

Okay, IAWL is still #1, but my childhood fave is still the Rankin-Bass Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, with Hermy the elf who wants to be a dentist, the Abominable Snowman, the Island of Misfit Toys and all.

A Clockwork Orange

My best friend and I love watching Jingle All the Way every year. Something about the PITA that Christmas shopping so often is.

My personal faves are

(1) A Christmas Story
(2) All of the Rankin-Bass specials
(3) Emmett Otter’s Jugband Christmas
(4) White Christmas

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Amazon just shipped “A Christmas Story” to the house I’ll be on that day. Actions speak louder.

With all respect to Patrick Stewart, Geo. C. Scott and Mickey Mouse I still vote for Alastair Sim if we do “A Christmas Carol.”
