For me, it's a close call between A Christmas Story and Gremlins.
Bernard and the Genie.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Home Alone (the only one that matters)
A Christmas Story
The Santa Clause (the first one)
Die Hard -- highly underrated Christmas movie.
Well, if no one else is going to say it:
It's a Wonderful Life. I never get tired of it.
oops! I forgot the "Die Hards".
I always liked A Christmas Story.
Like the Die Hard 1 and 2 reference. Also Family Man, but the life with the Ferrari.
Another vote for Die Hard.
Love, Actually and Home Alone are also close to the top of my list.
Home alone 1 and 2
Die hard 1 and 2
Passion of christ is pretty good for a gory christmas film, or would it be considered an easter film... hmm...
Another vote for A Christmas Story.
I'm pretty sure that would fall in with Easter.
Ernest Saves Christmas - Always a laugh, shame no one seems to remember it!
Santa Claus (1985) - Not the Tim Allen one, the one with Dudley Moore. Again, another classic not many remember!!
In no particular order, my Top-5:
A Christmas Story
A Charlie Brown Christmas
Pretty much the same ones already mentioned.
I would throw in Hustler's Barely Legal Christmas Movie. Very under rated.
Xmas & New Years
Trading Places not truly a xmas movie, but..
A Christmas Carol
1999, with Patrick Stewart.
IMO a powerful performance by Stewart, movie stays relatively close to the book as well. I can watch it any time of year.
A Christmas Story comes in a close second, though. So quotable. "I triple dog dare you!"
Without any doubt;
Die Hard (masterpiece, the second ones also Christmassy but... meh)
Home Alone 2
Planes, Trains and Automobiles (yes not Christmas, but close enough for someone who doesn't celebrate thanksgiving)
Bad Santa is okay too.
Wasn't Gremlins set at Christmas?
For me it's a tie between "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Love Actually."
"Sound of Music" is a close runner up. I watch all three of these movies every year!
The new "Christmas Carol" with Jim Carrey may take it's place. I really loved it.
It's a wonderful life. Hands down.
It's a Wonderful Life.
Great movie for sure.
