-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Growing up, I've always watched the live action of the Grinch and Christmas specials of cartoons every year, too bad they hardly show it on cable these days. My favorite Christmas movie would be Die Hard, yes it is a Christmas movie. I wonder what the Japanese usually watch during Christmas?

I hate them all. Flooded with endless grinch christy movies!

A Christmas Carol. The classic is the 50s one with Alistar Sims, although the one with Patrick Stewart as Scrooge is jolly good, as well.

Annual WWE Christmas Smacktacular

Bad Santa is the best.

Die Hard, Planes Trains and Automobiles.

Terry Gilliam's Brazil. Still top of the list. And possibly David Lean's version of Great Expectations.

I haven't watched It's a Wonderful Life enough times to put it at the top but it's on the list. Gremlins is up there, too, being a delightful subversion of Capra's style.

Old ones: Miracle on 34th Street, The Bishop's Wife, Christmas in Connecticut, We're No Angels, A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Not so old ones: Die Hard, The Santa Clause, A Christmas Visitor and the Happy Days episode where Fonzie has nowhere to spend Christmas but is too proud to admit. I like some of the Frasier Christmas episodes, too.

I think Impeachment - The Motion Picture will be a favorite in years to come.
