Gremlins IS a christmas movie, now that I think about it...

Good point, Christmas movies that we don't think of as primarily Chirstmas movies.

Die Hard's another one.

Actually I have always thought of Die Hard as a Xmas movie....since the first time I watched it I was 10 yo during Christmas.


awww memories.

I'm suprised no one has mentioned the beast that released Macaulay Culkin on us.  I say do Home Alone.  Or Home Alone 2.

unless they are sort of a out of date comedy (like Catalina Caper).  Then its a comedy goldmine!

Comedys that try to hard are another good one to riff... or pretty much anything with Rob Schneider.

Those are listed under comedy since Block Buster ran out of space on the 99 cent rocketsled of savings.

I think we have a winner in Die Hard. I'd forgotten that takes place during Christmas.

You know, I've always thought of The Shining as a Christmas movie.  There's snow, a big mansion, friendly spirits, and Shelley Duvall.

Seriously, I'd second Jingle All The WayIt's A Wonderful Life sounds like it might be good to.

I think Jingle all the way would be great. I do find it odd though that Mike hasn't done a Arnold movie yet...maybe he is saving them up for later because there are soooo many too choose from.

My vote's in for Jingle All The Way

It was pure crap with dispicable acting and a very weak plot.


Though, I really like Sinbad, I think he should stick to stand-up. He's much better at that.

If we're talking about films like Die Hard, it might be worth considering that Lethal Weapon is also a Christmas movie.

Heh - Gary Busey stalking through Danny Glover's house with an assault rifle (surely every homeowner's worst nightmare).

"Tell me - what day is it?" asks a newly reformed Scrooge on Glover's TV.

BUDDA-BUDDA-BLAM!

Busey: "It's Goddamn Christmas!"

BUDDA-BLAM!

Classic stuff!

Cheers,

Cy.

My vote is for any/all of the Rankin/Bass stuff, like Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer... the scenes with Hermie would be worth the price alone.

Also, I'm also on the Charlie Brown bandwagon, too. Those would be flat out fantastic.

My vote is on Jingle All The Way, but also:

- Serendipity (takes place around xmas.  I actually do kinda like it, but it is sort of riffable)
- Christmas with the Kranks
