I was looking through all my (currently unpublished ‘cause I’m garbage) blog posts and came across the one I did last December where I ranked Christmas songs from favorite to least favorite.
So since I’m the least interesting human being on the planet, let’s do that with Christmas movies.
(Also, just like the Christmas songs, only movies that I’ve seen and remember are on here.)
A Christmas Story
This is THE Christmas movie. Fight me. I always loved how TBS had this running all day (like, all 24 hours) on Christmas.
The Santa Clause
Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
My mom will not be pleased with me, but I do really enjoy the Home Alone movies. The second one was better than the first one.
A Muppet Christmas Carol
I like to think that Charles Dickens would have been down with Gonzo playing him in this movie.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Tim Burton, pre-Johnny Depp.
Jingle All the Way
Arnold Schwarzenegger in comedic roles is the best Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Miracle on 34th Street
I just like this story.
Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas
This is like some weird little off-shoot, straight to DVD movie. It’s like a mid-quel or something, but I like it, okay?
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
The original only. LEAVE DR. SEUSS ALONE
The only reason this isn’t last on the list is because I’d probably actually appreciate it now that I’m older. My dad would make me watch this every Christmas and I was so done with it.
It’s a Wonderful Life
Too…grim? I just never liked this one.
