Which Christmas film appeals the most?

As I love Christmas, the festive films are what I look forward to! :)

 

Miracle On 34th Street is a good one.

 

Santa Clause 3 we watched the other day.

 

I remember watching a sad film called The Christmas Tree (When Wolves Cry) with William Holden, always liked this one.

 

The classic Scrooge with Alastair Sim :tumbsup:

Mainly any version of A Christmas Carol/Scrooge...except the Muppet one....I try and watch every version that's showing on TV.

 

Polar Express I enjoyed when I watched it a couple of years ago with the little fella.

 

I suppose It's a Wonderful Life is one of my faves too, although Christmas with the Kranks is pretty funny.

I have forgotten the name of it but it's the film with Goldberg as a very bad Santa killing lots of people :christmas:

Along with the TSO DVD, The Ghost Of Christmas Eve :tumbsup:

Christmas Vacation far and away. It's a Wonderful Life would be second. On the other hand, Tim Allen should be shot and pissed on (something he became familiar with in prison, I'm sure [insert idiotic manly grunting here]) if he ever considers making another Christmas movie. I still get a huge kick whenever I think of his appearance on The Academy Awards after the first season of Home Improvement, and the producers obviously thought he was more famous than he really was because once he started into that foolish grunting schtick, the camera panned to Al Pacino, who leaned over to Beverly D'Angelo, and clearly mouthed the words, "Who the fuck is he?" When the camera swung over to other big stars, they had similar looks of bewilderment, shoulders were shrugged, and some were shaking their head in disbelief. The vast majority of big screen actors had no fucking idea who this doofus was.

For me, WONDERFUL LIFE is a must see, plus VACATION.

 

A "new" holiday favorite at my house is ELF with Will Ferrill and James Caan. It's not brain food but it's funny and kind of sweet :)

I despised Bad Santa to the point of wanting to crawl through the screen and kill every single nitwit character in the film. Thornton's drunken oaf Santa stumbles into a throng of people waiting for their kids to see the lame-ass prick. He's carrying a broken liquor bottle, and spouting,"Fuck this, Fuck that" and generally being a fucking jerk, and not one person steps up to straighten the asshole out. THAT infuriated me. I can guarantee this - if some drunken lout were acting like that in front of my kids, they'd have been shipping him back to the North Pole in a body bag. Then there was that mouthy, ill-tempered piece of shit elf, whom everyone he mouthed-off at was too terrified of the little bastard to pick him up and stuff him a garbage can where he belonged. Such characters can only exist in the minds of the Coen brothers and their employees, and sure as shit, the Coen brothers were responsible for producing this junk, and it's no secret they likely overhauled the scriptwriters' work. I don't get the Coens; I don't even try to anymore. So, what possible use is it to have a grown man beat the fuck out of a bully, who was all of about 14 years-old? At least Christmas Vacation has characters in situations I can identify with, but who the hell can identify with characters generally being loudmouth pricks free of any form of believable opposition? I didn't even grin once during that movie, but I've never forgotten the feelings of outrage - especially when I realized the wife forgot to return the video to the store on time and I got soaked with an additional late charge. Call me Ebenezer if you choose, but I ABHOR that movie!

'Silent Night Deadly Night 2' is the only Christmas film I would ever subject myself to. I detest the rest of them.

I usually end up watching Home Alone 2 by myself on Christmas Eve. The fam is usually doing something else, and I enjoy being alone for a minute.

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/
