    I see Channel 5 have started showing their regular backlog of Christmas made-for-TV movies. 3 today, 5 next Saturday! I assume they'll creep into more and more of the schedule as time goes on.

    I did a quick search for 'Christmas' on my freesat box this afternoon and found 15 movies over the next week or so.

    Now all I need is for After 8s to go on sale, and the tree to be up...

    Was flicking through the channel or guide thingy on the TV the other day and found a Christmas channel. Didn't even know there was an Xmas channel, that said, I don't use the TV much anyway.

    I'm waiting for The Santa Claus to be shown on RTE1 sometime in the next few weeks. Its my favourite Xmas movie, always has been since I was a kid so I can't wait for that :)

    Miracle on 34th Street is on again today on Sky 1 at 2.20.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,047 GerB40


    Home Alone 1+2. Two of the greatest movies of all time. I could watch those two movies on the hottest days of summer with the same nostalgia as I'll surely have while watching them this Christmas..

    Has anyone ever seen The Christmas Box with Richard Thomas & Maureen O'Hara? Its my favorite Xmas film of all time. Gives out such a warm feeling. If anyone loves or likes the film as much as I do, its on True Entertainment or True Movies 1 tomorrow at 07:00am

    Prancer is a really great Christmas movie guys if you can catch it anywhere this year. I never hear many people on about it but it's such a feelgood movie.

    I've seen it quite a few times :) That little girl must be about 30 now!

    Edit: she's 34! I feel old now :(

    I was delighted that True Movies 1 was showing Christmas movies.... but its the same ones over and over and over again!! :(
    I say I know the script of "Annie Claus", "three wise woman" and "secret santa" off by heart at this stage!!!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 438 ✭✭ xXxkorixXx

    I heard Colm Hayes on 2fm last week saying he watched three wise women and it was the worst movie he's ever seen in his life?
    Is it the one with Amy Huberman?

    I searched for Prancer on the Sky box and it's not there but Prancer Returns is on True Christmas on Sunday at 5. It's a sequel that was released in 2001. Hopefully Prancer will be on at some stage because I'm dying to see it now after reading about it here.

    Brilliant! I can use YouTube on the TV so I'll definitely watch that this week. Thanks a million.

    Yeah that's it.... its an "ok" movie - not really a "Christmas" movie though.. its watchable when nothing else is on!!
    It only caught my attention because it was based/filmed in Ireland and not a sh*te American one!!

    The Alistair Sim 'Scrooge' (1951) is starting on SonyMovies, sky channel 323, at 3pm. Also on the +1 channel an hour later.

    Well worth a watch!

    Nothing says it's Christmas more to me then seeing "Oliver" on the tv, it's become a tradition to watch it every Christmas now for about 16 or 17 years.


  • Registered Users Posts: 206 ✭✭ psugrue


    The Polar Express on Channel 5 right now.

    While it's great that Sky are showing christmas movies they really show some muck which are supposed to be christmas movies & the relentless repeat of them is disappointing,bad santa seems like it's on every day :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,092 ✭✭✭ SpaceCowb0y


    I watched "Grumpy Old Men" last night, forgot how funny it was!

    Christmas isn't Christmas without 'National Lampoons Christmas Vacation' looking forward to putting that one on closer to the time, always gets me in the mood for crimbo that one... Polar express is another one we'll sit down with the kids & watch on Christmas Eve, great movie that one... not a huge fan of Christmas films (most are B movie at best rubbish) but must admit with the kids getting a bit older we'll end up watching loads in the next 5 weeks.
