7 of the Best Christmas Movies

13 Dec

Elf

2003, Will Ferrel and Zooey Deschanel

Adopted by a Elf in the North Pole, Buddy the Elf (Will Ferrel) wants to meet his father in New York City.  Unfortunately his father is on the naughty list.  This movie is full of charm and humor.  Literally laugh out loud moments.  A little weak on the climax, but still a Christmas favorite. 

It’s a Wonderful Life

1946, James Stewart and Donna Reed


The Muppet Christmas Carol

1992, Fozzie and Kermet

There is no doubt that the Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is a favorite.  I love the Muppet’s take on this classic.  Funny clever and Christmas warming.  This is a great film.

The Santa Claus

1992, Tim Allen

Certainly the best in the trilogy (like most films).  Santa Claus is a film that I grew up on.  Reasonably funny, a good film to watch around the wood stove.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

1993, Tim Burton

This is the first year I’ve ever watched this show.  My parents would never let me watch it before.  Big mistake.  This movie has the charm of a ring on Valentines Day.  The music is lovely, and the very original story line is cute.

A Charlie Brown Christmas

1965, Depressed Young Children


What can I say about this one.  This movie is a classic.  It’s a must watch for everybody. 

HOME ALONe

1990, Macaulay Culkin

My Grandmother makes me watch this movie every year.  She absolutely loves this movie.  It is really funny, and portrayed Macaulay Culkin before he was creepy.
