    I might change the thread title to "Let's keep naming the same Christmas movies over and over again". It's not as snappy as the current title though.

    I totally called it.

    I had forgotten Brazil is a Christmas film. Wonderful. Dark. More relevant than ever.

    Lovely clean print they have on Film 4.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    It always starts at 8PM on Christmas Eve and it's on a continual loop for 24 hours on TBS in the US. Gotta watch it at least four times.

    Thanksgiving is the beginning of the Christmas holiday period for Americans, so kinda counts.

    Really? I thought it was quite a common idea, that Thanksgiving was the gateway to Xmas.

    Any interpretation of a Christmas Carol ...

    Must get the animated one, hope it's available as 3D blu-ray.
    The Jim carey one is - and the 3D is great.

    But to call it the animated one does a major disservice to the best animated version of the story, which is the one by Richard Williams. Brilliant dark telling of the story with most of the cast from the Aliaster Sim version in 1951. The visuals are brilliant, amazing panning and zooming for an animation of its day (1971).

    Not a Christmas film, but was every Christmas when I were a lad.

    Digby, the biggest dog in world.

    Quality stuff.

    Thread ended in 2006 with Home Alone.
    Home Alone 1&2 are essential viewing every year. The chase through the house in 2 still makes me laugh after the umpteenth viewing.

    Trading Places is a good one. Home Alone 1 & 2. Over The Top with Sly Stallone (not at all a Christmas film, but it's so awesome that it overrides that requirement). Scrooged.

    Not to my knowledge. When I mentioned it to my wife (who's American) she seemed quite offended by the idea!

    Right, that's twice I've tried to watch A Christmas Story. It's fucking shite! Seriously, who the fuck thinks this is a decent film?

    Like a number of people in here Die Hard has to be the movie for Christmas.
    This weekend I shall get out 1 and 2 and have a mini film session.

    As great as Die Hard is, it's kind of cheating a little to say it's a great "Christmas movie". Seeing as how the whole Christmas aspect is very minor and totally superflous to the plot.

    While a great Christmas movie doesn't exactly have to be "about" Chritmas, it seems like Die Hard is stretching it a little.

    I mean, I could say The Godfather is the best Christmas movie of all time, cos there's a five minute scene in the first film set at Christmas time.

    I'm not saying it is a great movie about Christmas but a great Christmas movie. I always seem to watch either of the first two films around Christmas time.

    I think the reason it qualifies is because the entire purpose is to get home for Christmas to see his kids and Hans Gruber fucks it all up.

    I'd agree the likes of Die Hard, Batman Returns etc are films set at Christmas rather than Christmas films.

    So my shout goes to Scrooged.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.
