Rizzla7024 -> Where's the love? (4/12/2012 3:39:44 PM)

I totally agree with all of these and make a habit of watching Trading Places, While You Were Sleeping, The Muppet Xmas Carol and Die Hard religiously every holiday season (as well as out of season). But there is one film which is definitely missing from the list: Love Actually. I know it's schmaltzy Christmas goo... but it's British goo and has great comic timing (I'm not even going to mention Selfridges and holly) and really get's one revved up for the season. Recommended watching: 1st week of Advent.




The Tingler -> What about... (4/12/2012 6:45:01 PM)

You were dreading this, weren't you? Where we point out all the films you missed and shout "HOW COULD WE FORGET THAT?!" in the middle of the office.

Case in point: Gremlins. Definitely mid-to-late December.

The last three films are so perfect...but I need a Love Actually fix at some point




LaughingGravy2 -> Original and best (4/12/2012 8:41:06 PM)

Agree with much on list, but ommission of the best version of Christmas Carol - Sim as Scrooge. A total joy (so long as NOT colourised) Also, for tradition sake, the recent Nativity Story (2006) - beautifully shot and with a moving and realistic rendering of the Bethlehem scenes.




TPM007 -> On Her Majesty's Secret Service! (5/12/2012 11:31:28 AM)

I mean, what is Christmas without a bit of Bond? And OHMSS is the ideal Crimbo-Themed Bond film!




chrisharrison2011 -> Seriously Empire??? (5/12/2012 12:45:38 PM)

Have you even watched or at least 'Googled' the movies you mention here??? It is Bill PULLMAN in 'While You Were Sleeping', not Bill PAXTON. It's Game Over Empire...




dayboy76 -> Two words: (5/12/2012 12:51:09 PM)

palerider_uk -> Gremlins (5/12/2012 6:25:17 PM)

Definetly gremlins. Its such a christmas film, that they even re-released the film on DVD and blueray with festive pictures. The original art work is gone, now its either gizmo in a christmas hat or a gremlin popping out of a present. New tag line "feel festive!"
And wasn't Gizmo a christmas present to Billy?




bjgreek -> (6/12/2012 1:41:01 AM)

Deffo would swap die hard and it's a wonderful life the other way around




bjgreek -> (6/12/2012 1:41:19 AM)

and the Grinch?!?!




bnicholson50 -> dont forget... (7/12/2012 5:21:17 PM)

die hard 2, the long kiss goodnight, gremlins, home alone, arthur christmas, Santa Claus: The Movie, The Hogfather, Toy Story (final scene set on xmas day),




Swedle -> So many missing! (8/12/2012 10:59:02 AM)

The Grinch is my Christmas eve movie every year! and Gremlins is for that day (about the 22nd) when you realize you've forgotten to buy/wrap/send about 80% of your Christmas presents, i watch it and think, well things could be worse, at least i'm not being attacked by little demon Yodas...




mike234 -> well its the big show (9/12/2012 10:36:14 AM)

if i fancy watching the big show fight arnold schwarzenegger when is that allowed?




Melanoma Head -> Just a fly in the ointment, Hans. (11/12/2012 10:13:43 AM)

You've got it all wrong, Empire... Die Hard has to be watched on Christmas Eve! Preferably whilst wearing a vest. And walking around on the carpet making fists with your toes etc.

DarthMaxxx -> What makes a Christmas movie? (11/12/2012 5:39:31 PM)

Does the subject matter have to be about Christmas or does the story (not Christmas related) just have to take place at Christams time?




edjones95 -> Umm... (12/12/2012 9:49:33 PM)

...Bronson anybody, I watched that on christmas eve last year, definitely one to put you in the christmas spirit




Trisanddad -> Giddy as a schoolboy!!! (13/12/2012 3:39:51 PM)

So where's Alister Simm's "A Christmas Carol"?

Rich Empire -> The Prestige! (14/12/2012 9:29:01 PM)

The Prestige is one of my Christmas favs, along with Batman Returns.
Excellent stuff.
