    Three variations on a Christmas Carol...
    • Scrooged starring Bill Murray
    • A Muppet Christmas Carol
    • A Christmas Carol - the 1999 Patrick Stewart version which is a more faithful adaptation of the Dickens book.

    A Muppet Family Christmas... Way better than a Muppet Christmas Carol imo.

    Muppets, Fraggles and Sesame Street gang, what's not to love.

    My own ones are;

    Scrooged
    A Muppet Christmas Carol
    National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

    The Christmas Carol theme is very popular and very well executed throughout alot of the popular Christmas Movies.

    I don't think The Family Man has been mentioned yet, but I love that movie, it was on Channel 5 last weekend but I missed it, hoping it gets a repeat soon.

    Love it.
    I've mentioned it in the movies thread a couple of times, I know its not really a christmas movie but starts & ends at christmas & is a lovely story. Its a definite watch for us every year in the build up.

    My top 5 (dont make me pick an order!)
    Home Alone
    Muppets Christmas Carol
    Die Hard
    National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
    Gremlins


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,718 ✭✭✭ TRS30


    Muppets Christmas Carol
    Die Hard 1 or 2
    National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
    Home Alone 1

    no particular order


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,440 ✭✭✭ The Rape of Lucretia


    Elf.
    Will Ferrell makes it.


    Bad Santa.
    Can believe this one isnt trending more. Not one for the kids, but its Billy Bobs finest movie apart from The Man Who Wasnt There, and does have a real Christmas ending to it.

    Love Actually
    Presumably only a movie for the men, but any movie that has all the women behave as brainless sex objects (apart from the fine Emma Thompson scene which cuts against the grain so much), and the men do indeed 'get' them, all, while reprehensible, is allowable as a once off as part of the magic of Christmas.


    Sorry, but Die Hard and Gremlins, despite their general merits, just arent Christmas movies.

    So many more to add as I’m addicted to Christmas 24 and True Christmas but they are the most popular
