Best/Worst Christmas Movies

Hi All

 

Well Christmas is here once again and whilst I haemorrhage money on loved ones I thought I would create this thread to take my mind of it.

 

Ever since I was a child Christmas always seemed to be a time for Movies, probably to keep me quiet, the boisterous child that I was.

 

So with that in mind Christmas Movies they fall into two categories for me cringe worthy or funny.

 

So below I list some and would be interested in recommendations from you which could impact my Christmas viewing.

 

Cringe worthy

 

Ernest Saves Christmas (can’t really warm to the character Ernest in any of his movies really)

Fred Claus (no no no)

 

Funny

 

Home Alone

Elf

 

Cheers

Hi Stuart

 

Thanks for replying. I'll admit I've never seen It's a Wonderful Life (not sure how as I have seen adverts for it every year.

 

The other two are classics, any Christmas movies you hated?

Re: Best/Worst Christmas Movies

Not really. It has to be black and white version of It's A Wonderful Life ie the original.

I am kicking myself for adding the Muppet's Christmas Carol that is a very firm favourite.

Re: Best/Worst Christmas Movies

Another vote for A Wonderful Life here. Gets the emotions across, without much of the cheese you find tucked into a lot of seasonal films.

 

Growing up, mind, Christmas was always either James Bond, or Carry on....

Hi Carlj64

 

Come to think of it you raise a fair point.

 

When thinking back to Christmas as a child they did tend to be bit of a Bond Marathon

Re: Best/Worst Christmas Movies

Can I just ask, what's the deal with Die Hard being a Christmas movie? I mean, really?

Re: Best/Worst Christmas Movies

I think its probably a man thing, plot happens at Xmas, Perry Como singing, protecting the nest and wife etc.

 

Comedy version is Arnie in "Jingle all the way", dad tries to get his son the must have toy for Xmas. We watch the latter every year. Brilliant.
