Brazil, of course!

But that Capra flick as well. The one where George Bailey goes up against Tru-I mean, Potter. Fabulous film.

Brazil, of course!

I came here to say Die Hard, but I totally forgot Brazil takes place during Christmas too. Thanks, now I have two favorite Christmas movies! Time to dust off the blu-ray.

If you have kids, Elf. Have never seen my daughter laugh that hard.

It's a Wonderful Life is my all-time fav. Saw it in college with my jaded, drunken friends and we were all tearing up at the end. If you don't like it, your heart is two sizes too small.

Enjoy!

I'd also add the Finnish horror fantasy Rare Exports - A Christmas Tale. It's a tale of Santa Clause that is beyond description.

Oh and Gremlins, of course. Which in itself, is a nod to It's a Wonderful Life.

I’m normally an easygoing fellow, but anyone who didn’t list “A Muppets Christmas Carol” in their top Christmas films should be arrested.

I've always wanted to see that but it keeps slipping my mind. I think it's on Netflix here, I need to remember this year.

And how could I forget Gremlins. I'm slipping. (If only I could forget Gremlins 2)
