Die Hard 2: Die Harder (which I actually watched the other day and isn't a horrible movie at all)

The Nightmare Before Christmas and Tokyo Godfathers.  I adore both of those movies, but I really only watch them in December.  Also, RIP Satoshi Kon :*(

'Tis NOT the season unless I have indulged in 24 hours of A Christmas Story.  I always watch it at least twice.  I even have A Christmas Story pajama pants that have Ralphie's face and say "You'll shoot your eye out, kid."  

Besides A Christmas Story, I enjoy Rudolph (the original 1964 Rankin Bass stop motion one), The Nightmare Before Christmas, Home Alone, Charlie Brown Christmas...
Oh, I finally saw Arthur Christmas last year and that was good.  

But the best Christmas movie ever has to be Gremlins.

Die hard and Die Hard 2 are favorites, naturally...but the one movie I always end up watching without fail is goddamn Grandma got run over by a Reindeer. Hate it with a passion, it's godawful, but Cartoon Network will play it pretty much for a silid week before christmas and I'll inevitably get bored and leave it on while I browse my phone...

It really is just terrible.

Stalag 17.

A dark comedy from the 50s about life in a German WW2 prisoner camp. It takes place during Xmas and despite some old movie tendencies that hurt the movie it is one of my all-time favorites. It's not a realistic portrayal of life in a POW camp but I'm sure some of the things, like escape tunnels, dealing with the guards, etc, are based off of true stories.

It was one of the few movies my dad and I watched together with any regularity.

Here's one of the more ridiculous scenes.

I'm no student of film of the 50s but I have to imagine a comedy about ww2 so close to the end of the war must've been a scene in the 50s

I just bought it on amazon on bluray for cheap.

I just saw Bad Santa recently, and I'm thinking it's a classic, plus it's supposedly getting a sequel.
Scrooged is great, and I grew up with it more or less, fucked up as it may be.

Also saw Harold and Kumar 3 two years in a row around this time.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

tbh I quit liking Eraserhead once I found out that Lynch had Quentin Miller ghostwrite most of it.

Christmas Vacation: Perfectly describes the holidays when you have too much family over, plus it's just funny with a lot of subtle jokes on top of the bigger ones.

Scrooged: Yeah, I love it.  The atmosphere is too cool and does the modernized script some justice.

Bad Santa: I'm pretty sure Billy Bob barely had to act in this one. :P  So funny, so immoral, doesn't try too hard to be absolutely awful and it works.

Home Alone 2: Something about living it up in NYC is probably why this ranks...
