I ran across an article about The World's Most Obnoxious Xmas Comedies tonight. Is it a coincidence that I own three of them? Ghostbusters 2 (how could I have forgotten that one the other day, particularly since I'd just watched it!)? Also, Jingle All the Way, not a great movie, by any means, but not THAT bad. And Christmas With the Kranks--I love this movie!
And looking at my original list, I see that I forgot White Christmas. I put Holiday Inn on the original list, but not White Christmas. And I like Miracle on 34th Street, but I've never been a fan of It's a Wonderful Life. Bob loves A Christmas Carol, but I can take it or leave it (mostly leave it), and the same with the George C. Scott version, Scrooge, which I bought for Bob this year. Ooh, and Scrooged! I haven't seen that for years!
So, a new, better list of Christmas movies (Christmas movies I like, not an exhaustive list of Christmas movies, obviously):
- National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
- Die Hard
- Home Alone
- Home Alone II
- Jingle All the Way
- Ghostbusters 2
- Nightmare Before Christmas
- White Christmas
- Holiday Inn
- Christmas With the Kranks
- Love Actually
- Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas
- Miracle on 24th Street
Here's another Christmas movie article: Christmas with the cranks, or "anti-Christmas movies." It only includes two from my list (Die Hard and Nightmare Before Christmas).
