SO.., What is your favorite Christmas movie? 

 

I really like Elf but I think the old csrtoon movies (like Santa clause is coming to town, A year without a santa clause, Frosty the Snowman etc are like my favorite. 

 

Also any Christmas movie you don’t like?

Mickey's Once/Twice Upon A Christmas are hands down my favorites. You get a little bit of everything with them.

My favorite Christmas movie is the original “Miracle on 34th Street” from 1947.

I've always been partial towards A Charlie Brown Christmas and The Nightmare Before Christmas myself, although the latter is usually considered a Halloween movie, I think.

It can be both. Isn't that the point? :D

Have you seen the Looney Toons version of A Christmas Carol? Bahumduck, I believe it was called. Also a good one.

 

Unrelated to the above I also gotta give a huge shout out to Tim Allen's The Santa Claus movies for being one of the few non-animated movies to catch my interest. And I'm not just talking about Christmas movies.

What makes Die hard a Christmas movie? i saw an article or heard someone trying to prove that die hard wasn’t an actual Christmas movie...

Eh, it's a tongue in cheek reference. It takes place on Christmas Eve, at a company Christmas party, and features some songs in the soundtrack.

I don't really have a thing for Christmas movies. The only one I would go out of my way to watch around Christmastime is It's a Wonderful Life.

If we're talking about movies related to Christmas, definitely Die Hard. Although I don't watch it every holiday season, preferring to watch Doctor Who specials instead.

Spoiler

I also like Frozen and plan to rewatch it this December. Please, don't hit me.

I've seen them all. Though I only saw the third one once. Maybe I should try to get them again. We lost the DVDs for them years ago.

  • Home Alone
  • National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

I like 'Unaccompanied Minors.' I watch it every year.

I also watch 'Smilla's Sense of Snow' but that's not a Christmas movie. I just watch it because it's snowy and cold, which gets me in the holiday mood. (Even though it's a really grim movie).
