    First of all, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
    Second, fuck you’re mother for limiting a Christmas movie list to five!!!!

    If I have to choose a top five favorites; I’d say...

    1. It’s A Wonderful Life
    2. Christmas Vacation
    3. Home Alone
    4. Polar Express
    5. Scrooged

    (Honorable Mentions: Elf, Disney’s A Christmas Carol, The Grinch, Christmas With the Cranks, The Santa Clause, A Very Brady Christmas, etc).

    * Disclaimer: thread asked for movies so no TV specials were included. (Otherwise: Emit Otter, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, Charlie Brown Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer would all be listed too.

    Whatever. Im high. I can’t decide.

    If BBC do reruns of Only Fools and Horses Christmas specials, you need to record them.

    Not a fan of It's A Wonderful Life, but Polar Express is flat out awesome & A Christmas Story is a classic.

    FUCK!!!! Of course I am! It is up there but I let it slip through the cracks because of the bullshit pressure you put on us by limiting the list to 5!!! You did this.

    Yes. It's a solid movie other than some overacting by James Stewart - but it has nothing to do with Christmas. The fact that it is considered one of the greatest Christmas movies of all time is one of life's great mysteries.
