Must Watch Christmas-Time Movies?


(Insert Witty Line Here)
Around this time of year I like to watch a certain collection of Christmas movies to get in the spirit, (and Christmas movies I like to watch when I'm with the family), some are:

-Merry Christmas Charlie Brown! (been watching it since I was a kid)
-A Wonderful Life (classic)
-A Christmas Story (another classic, pretty funny flick)
-Bad Santa (new, dark, funny ass Christmas flick)
-Scrooged! (great Christmas flick with the amazing Bill Murray)

What others do you guys watch around this time of year, (if any)?

Second pretty much everything mentioned.

I also like all the gay Rankin/Bass puppet ones like Jack Frost, Nestor, Santa, Rudolph, all those.

And of course Silent Night, Deadly Night:



Frank Reynolds is my hero
Trading Places
Christmas Story
The Thing (weird I know, but a tradition to watch on Christmas Eve in our family.)


El hombre de los moleculos!
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

On Christmas Eve, my friends and I get drunk as hell and watch Black Christmas (the original, not the POS remake) and "I Spit on Your Grave" (not sure why).

For some reason, I have an unhealthy obsession with And Then There Were None (the 1945 version) around this time of year...even though it's nowhere near related to the holidays.
A Christmas Story and National Lampoons Christmas Vacation.

Donovan's Reef...a great John Wayne Xmas flick set in Hawaii...
