    What Christmas films do you enjoy?

    I find myself only enjoying a few anymore. I don't really watch movies these days so it is likely why I kind of moved away from the genre. I prefer series over movies.

    Anyways, one movie (as terrible as it is) that I don't mind watching if I catch it on is Elf. It is one of the silliest and dumbest Christmas movies but for some reason, I still enjoy it. I used to enjoy the Grinch movie with Jim Carey but I have lost interest in it over the years as I have seen it too much. A Christmas Story is a classic in my family. I watched it several dozen times over the years. While I don't watch it anymore, if it was on and nothing was happening at the moment, I would watch it.

    I'm the same with films. I'm not sure why but it's almost always TV shows.

    Damn, I can't remember anything about The Grinch from a couple of decades back. (Or any other Grinch for that matter.) I expect I'll be watching another Home Alone with the kids this time. I don't remember any of the sequels so I don't know which one(s) is actually worth bothering with.

    I guess the Christmas films I remember most fondly would be some old British stuff I saw as a boy, such as...



    I recommend getting high before attempting to watch that one.



    I've already recommended this animation here at least one or two times. I don't know how many Americans ended up watching it during their childhoods, but damn it's good. It's a great demonstration of why digital animation will never capture the magic of traditional methods. (In this case crayons and pastels. You didn't see that every day.)

    I haven't watched a new Christmas movie in a long time.
    The last newish one I was was Deck the Halls with Danny DeVito and Matthee Broderick and...its absolutely terrible. Not sure how you can mess up a movie with those two in it, but...they found a way.
    I do usually watch a few classics most years. It's a Wonderful Life. A Christmas Story. (Rsther eady to watch that since AMC plays it 24 hours on Christmas.). Christmas Vacation and Scrooged are two classic comedic takes on the holiday, and Christmas Carol has countless variations that are fun to watch. Muppet's Christmad Carol is one of my favorites, for sure.

    More or less very mainstream and simple stuff such as national Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Home alone and Jingle All the Way.
    Even though Im not that into movies anymore.

    The Nightmare Before Christmas will always be number one for me. Such a wonderful film.

    I remember this! I watched it when I was really young. I even remember that there was a children's illustration book my mom gave me when I was that age. Man, that animation is still gorgeous.
