    So here we go again it's a new month so time for a new tournament.


    So this time we are deciding on our favourite Christmas Movie of all time.


    The Rules

    1. Maximum of 6 nominations per post.
    2. Remakes ARE allowed.
    3. Movies will be ranked firstly by number of Nominations and secondly by total gross box office receipts for full clarity.


    We'll see how we go with nominations first before the knockouts will be announced.


    Fire away, looking forward to this one :)

    I thought I read somewhere they were.

    I haven't watched the second yet.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 26,596 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Posy


    I found the second one much better than the first, tbh!
    Not sure about a third- hope they don't just flog the franchise to death!
    Now, must get thinking about my nominations...

    I personally preferred the first (the 'baddie' in the second one really irritated me for some reason) but the majority of people seem to think the second is better.
    Our kids love them both mind.
