It's a simple question but James has all his favorites broken down by category.

Well, apparently "This video does not exist," but that's okay. I already know what the best Xmas movie is: "Brazil." Don't believe it's a Christmas movie? Watch it. Part of the film's entire milieu is that it's set at Christmas.
you should review i wanna be the guy or coraline for the wii. i don't care if they aren't old.
Home Alone 1 and 2 were one of the best Christmas movie that I remember. Check out My Blog
Batman Returns is another
I enjoyed this very much. I'm surprised James didn't mention Silent Night Deadly Night as one of the alternative Christmas movies.
I finally watched my VHS copy of Home Alone again after like 15 or more years and I also opened & watched the VHS copy of Home Alone 2 I got from Coconuts back in like 2004 (haven't seen that one for 20 years since I saw it in the theater).
I taped Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer back in 1990 & have it on DVD too but didn't get a chance to watch it & many other specials (Charlie Brown Christmas, Frosty the Snowman, Little Drummer Boy, The Year Without Santa Claus, Pink Panther Christmas, etc) I wanted to watch thanks to my newest health problems. I did see the He-Man & She-Ra Christmas special (which I haven't seen in years) on a new cable channel we got called COZI TV.
One of my favorite Christmas shorts besides Mickey's Christmas Carol is the Warner Bros short Bedtime For Sniffles where Sniffles the mouse tries to stay up until midnight so he could see Santa but falls asleep. It's a classic in every way & anyone who's interested can watch it here:
Other alternative Christmas movies I like are Gremlins, Batman Returns, and Ghostbusters 2 (more like a New Year's movie).
I still haven't seen It's A Wonderful Life, which I have to do since I'm a fan of Jimmy Stewart. I taped Scrooge/A Christmas Carol with Alastair Sim a while back and didn't get the time to watch it this year either. Scrooged with Bill Murray was good but I don't own a copy and haven't seen it in years.
I hope Everybody had a Happy Shut The Fuck Up!
My favorite Christmas movies are Home Alone 1-3 and The Santa Clause. I remember watching them all the time, when I was young, and I can't evade them when I'm watching the TV.
Funny thing, we tried to watch Scrooge this year but could only find the late 80's colorized version. It's funny, but seeing it colored sorta robs the film of it's original feel.
I tend to watch A nightmare before Christmas every year. So not only is it probably my favorite Christmas movie, it's one of my favorite movies.
And if anybody disagrees : Opening song + Oogie Boogie song ... Your move !
Review "Scrooged". It's funny and a great version of a Christmas Carol. It's my favorite in general, use it where you want
Funny thing is is that I got Gremlins as a Christmas Present (or it might have been brother)--forgetting that it is in fact a Christmas movie. It is one of my favorites too, and I enjoyed watching this for sure.
I'm all over the place when it comes to Christmas movies.
Best Classic Christmas Movie - It's A Wonderful Life
Best Christmas Short - How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Best TV Christmas Special - Animaniacs: Wacko's Wish
Best Personal Childhood Christmas Movie - A Muppet Christmas Carol
Best New Christmas Movie - Disney's A Christmas Carol
Best All Time Christmas Movie - A Muppet Christmas Carol
Also, for new Christmas films, I've also heard a lot of great things of Arthur Christmas, which I have but haven't seen yet. I'm curious to know if it can top Disney's latest Carol adaptation, which I love for it's faithful re-telling of the story and it's authentically darker tone. Also, Jim Carrey.
I loved hearing Mr. Rolfe talk about all these different Christmas movies he appreciates or loves.
Personally, I really love Die Hard after all. Although it may not be the best Christmas movie, I guess.
The nightmare before Christmas is one of the best Christmas movies I have seen
For my short would be frosty.
The Griswold Family Christmas 1989, I thought that was pretty funny and I watch it every time, it never gets old.
also the movie ELF
I'll name a few:
Muppet's Christmas Carol
Die Hard 1 & 2
Nightmare Before Christmas
Home Alone 1 & 2
Jiminy Cricket's Christmas
A good list and video. My all time favorite Christmas movie is without a doubt the 1994 adaption of Miracle on 34th St.
Best Christmas movie? Thats easy: Die Hard!
Holy crap, I totally remember that Kathie Lee one.
But Kiss Saves Santa takes it by far.
Yes Yes Yes
