Well, if you won't talk politics...

I know you're out there, being silent. I see your footprints in the snow of my site meter. Don't worry, I won't bite. much......

How about a more holiday themed discussion, then?

What's your favorite Christmas movie? I'm trying to compile a list of all of the movies I like that are even vaguely Christmas movies. Movies like Die Hard and Running Scared that take place mostly at Christmastime are just as valid as Mickey's Christmas Carol and Jingle All the Way.

Here's my Top 10:
10. Home Alone
9. The Original Grinch Who Stole Christmas
8. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
7. Scrooge (the Albert Finney version of A Christmas Carol)
6. Meet Me in St. Louis (source of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas")
5. It's a Wonderful Life
4. Love Actually
3. Miracle on 34th Streeet
2. A Christmas Story
...and...
1. White Christmas

So what do you think? Fill up the comment box!

Hmm. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is out already? That Depp movie comes out next year. Gene Wilder's Willy Wanka and the Chocolate Factory came out in 1971. Still, I like it as a Christmas movie.

My choice, off the top of my head: "Gremlins" There are times I just break out humming that tune.....

(Good advice to Cranky)

I never miss:

It's a Wonderful Life
Miracle on 34th Street
Rudolph (the cartoon/puppet version)
Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol (which is the definitive version)
Scrooged
I will add Love Actually, which I thought was wonderful, but which I won't watch with my teenage daughters (bit of a prude, am I)
Charlie Brown's Christmas, and
A Diva's Christmas Carol, 'cause it has Vanessa Williams in it, of course!

Ooo! This time of year I like "Miracle on 34th Street (the original one)", "It's a Wonderful Life", "When Harry Met Sally (it's got holiday stuff in it...)", "A Christmas Story" and "Holiday Inn". Also, I like any movie I get for Christmas...The Lord of the Rings trilogy counts for this discussion, right? ;)
