Jesus of Nazareth.

real Christmas movie.

Carol comes to mind. The romance between the two characters set against the backdrop of a Christmas in the 50s is just so aesthetically pleasing.

Any maybe Rise of the Guardians even though Santa's a main character in it? Either way, awesome movie.

The live action Grinch movie, the one where Jim Carey (I think) played the role of the green monster. I've watched that on tv since I was a kid. Nowadays, I routinely watch Die Hard as my Christmas movie.

Even though a bit schmaltzy, I still love "Little Lord Fauntleroy" with Alec Guinness and Connie Booth and especially "We're No Angels" with Humphrey Bogart. That's a must for Christmas!
