You dare deny the unmitigated greatness that is A Christmas Story?
You have no soul.
Drescher's presence still haunts this planet.
A Christmas Story is semi-fictional. Advantage: A Christmas Story.
" Santa Claus Conquers The Martians " is entertaining for all the wrong reasons.
It co-stars Pia Zadora when she had EVEN less talent.

Casper's Haunted Christmas
Okay, fine I might have had something to do with that and maybe get a small percentage of the sales. So buy it already. Or rent it. Kids like it. Some kids like it. Okay there's two good scenes.
Best Christmas movie? A tie between It's a Wonderful Life and Die Hard.
Muppet Christmas Carol. Hands down. Honourable mentions for Gremlins and It's A Wonderful Life.
Oh yeah, I love 'Muppet's Christmas Carol' too! :) I forgot because I only have that on *gag* VHS so it's buried under the DVDs.
I'm going to change my sig to make for the slight!
I've always been partial to Bill Murray's 'Scrooged'; especially for David Johansen as The Ghost Of Christmas Past, Carol Kane as The Ghost Of Christmas Present, and Bobcat Goldthwait as the drunken & homicidal Bob Crachet-type.
"'Kirby got a shitty contract too, so get over it' isn't a great tagline."
i would have to say that Nightmare before Christmas is one of my favorites.
although A Muppet's Christmas Carol is good too.
Of course the greatest Christmas movie is "It's a Wonderful Life."
Or the Alistair Sim version of "Christmas Carol."
Or "A Christmas Story."
Or "Miracle on 34th Street." C'mon, how can you not love this one? Fred Mertz is the wise politico!
Miracle on 34th Street.
The original. not the 2 other remake.
Muppet's Christmas Carol
I've got VHS and DVD; my VHS never gets watched now, mainly because the DVD cuts out Michael Caine singing a love song.
"It's a Wonderful Life," for the following reasons:
1) Lead character attempts suicide.
2) Lead character gets drunk and drives car into a tree, then flees scene of accident.
3) Lead character gets drunk and yells at his kids, causing them to cry.
4) Lead character gets drunk and gets slugged in barfight with husband of kid's teacher, whom he insulted.
5) "Potterville" -- booze and girls. 'Nuff said.
6) Lead character, as boy, gets slapped around by drunken, abusive pharmacist.
Can you get any more darned Christmasy than that?
