Alright guys lets talk about some of your favorite holiday films that are a must to watch around this time. My top 10 that I'll probably get to watching sometime this month includes

  1. Die Hard I
  2. Die Hard II
  3. National Lampoon Christmas Vacation
  4. Jingle All the Way
  5. Home Alone I
  6. Nightmare Before Christmas
  7. Gremlins
  8. Christmas Story
  9. Bad Santa
  10. Elf

Along with that while combing through Amazon for Christmas flicks I came upon a bunch of holiday dog films? Has Matt Rorie secretly amassed a Christmas canine production empire?

Just some of the Christmas dog films I found on Amazon Instant Streams. That Scoot and Kassie's Christmas Adventures looks kinda interesting cause it stars Luke Perry from 90210 fame.

Props for mentioning Jingle All The Way. That's my family's go-to favorite and it doesn't seem to get much love compared to the bigger ones.

Iron Man 3?

I think Christmas Vacation is the only actual (not stuff like Die Hard) Christmas movie that I like.

I like to watch Planes Trains and Automobiles somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas every year.

I was coming in to say Die Hard, but I guess you got it covered. Bye bye.

#10 Edited by Yummylee (21475 posts) -

Also, Scrooged.

#11 Posted by Thoseposers (782 posts) -

Home Alone 2 because it's better than the first

#12 Posted by Broomhitches (173 posts) -

I'm surprised no one has mentioned The Year Without a Santa Clause.

Oh shit, is that the one with Turbo Man? My brother and I make waaay too many references to that movie for either of us not really remembering too much about it.

Jingle All the Way. I watch it every year.

I wish I was kidding.

#15 Posted by Bane122 (786 posts) -

To cover a couple that have yet to be mentioned: Love Actually and Batman Returns.

#16 Posted by CreepingDeath0 (176 posts) -

Jack Frost. This one

A perfect family christmas film!

#17 Posted by Butano (1731 posts) -

Mickey's Christmas Carol, y'know, with Scrooge McDuck as Scrooge, Goofy as Marley, Mickey as Bob Cratchit, etc. etc.

#18 Edited by briangodsoe (487 posts) -

The Long Kiss Goodnight, It's a Wonderful Life, Muppet Christmas Carol, Santa Clause Conquers The Martians(with or without MST3K), Rare Exports, and Black Christmas(Original and remake) to cover a few that haven't been added yet. The Black Christmas remake was kind of forgotten, as most horror remakes are, but it was pretty fun. One dude gets impaled on a Christmas tree.

Also didn't Let the Right One In take place at Christmas or was that just winter in general?

@creepingdeath0:

Think this version might just be more fucked up then the horror film.

Did anybody say Black Christmas? Black Christmas.

#22 Posted by Stonyman65 (2658 posts) -

Santa's Slay. Goldberg is a BOSS! Seriously, this movie is awesome.

#23 Posted by MightyDuck (1521 posts) -

Every year on Black Friday, my family gets together and does nothing but watch Chrismas Movies. This year we got through quite a few before calling it a day.

  1. Christmas Vacation (always starts the festivities)
  2. A Christmas Story
  3. Charlie Brown Christmas
  4. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
  5. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Christmas
  6. Miracle on 34th Street (1947 version...the correct version, if you ask me!)
#24 Posted by Mechanical_Ape (249 posts) -

While it's not exactly a movie, I do have a tradition of watching Blackadder's Christmas Carol each year.

#25 Posted by Breadfan (6589 posts) -

Goodfellas. You know, that Christmas part in it.

The part where Robert De Niro slowly kills all his associates?

#27 Posted by OneKillWonder_ (1720 posts) -

Good on you for having Die Hard at the top of your list! Definitely the quintessential Christmas film. That, Home Alone, and Bad Santa are my favorites.

#28 Posted by ArtisanBreads (3789 posts) -

Used to love this as a kid.

I also like watching Jingle All the Way (SUE ME!) and the new Grinch is a funny movie. Die Hard though, as always, is the Christmas movie to watch.

#29 Edited by StarvingGamer (8128 posts) -

Iron Man 3

Since someone already recommended Santa's Slay, I'll add Santa with Muscles to the mix.

Which Grinch movie? The original was great the Jim Carrey one not so great.

#41 Posted by tsutohiro (364 posts) -

@i_stay_puft: The only Grinch movie is the original '66 "How the Grinch Stole Christmas".

Fuck Jim Carrey, he was only good when he was funny.

Oh man cause you mentioned it and it was on netflix I gave "Love Actually" a try. That was a pretty corny movie... though it pays off with Alan Rickman "Hans Gruber" voice and a young Andrew Lincoln before he got all Walking Dead.

Denis Leary is a whining maggot. Oh, am I not the first person to use that phrase? I'm not the second either.

More importantly, he's a fucking thief.

As for a Christmas movie that hasn't been mentioned, how about the Long Kiss Goodnight. Action movie that takes place around Christmas, and stars Geena Davis. It's actually pretty good.

Came here to post this video. Saw this post. Nodded in approval of GB community. Left happy.

Even though it's not a great movie, Mix Nuts was a mediocre Christmas film. It's only worth watching one time.

#48 Posted by MetalThrashingMatt (209 posts) -

Anybody who hasn't mentioned The Santa Clause is wrong

#49 Posted by Nightriff (4974 posts) -

Die Hard films Christmas Eve, it is a tradition I started with my dad years ago.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles on Thanksgiving to lead into crappy christmas movies, lets be real...PTaA is the greatest holiday movie ever.

And I'll squeeze in Christmas Vacation, Santa Clause, and original Grinch during Thanksgiving and Christmas.
