What is your favorite Christmas movie and which do you hate the most?
What are you, some kind of Communist? ;)
You found me out! OH NOES!
Favorite: “A Christmas Carol” with Alastair Sim
Worst: “It’s A Wonderful Life”
Favorite runner-up: “The Great Rupert” with Jimmy Durante
Worst Runner up: “It’s A Wonderful Life” (I really dislike this movie!!)
There are so many bad ones in the past several years its hard to list them all...
Here is one from 2011....
“A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas” - probably one of the worst movies, let alone Christmas movies, of ALL TIME.
Do you really think drugging up children with speed or meth or whatever is funny? Of course not. There was nothing funny about this movie.
Worst: Anything from Lifetime
Why do you dislike Its a Wonderful Life so much?
Maybe you would have liked it better if it ended like this.
It’s A Wonderful Life - The Lost Ending
White Christmas—always loved it, even as a kid. For a kid’s show, Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer.
I had the old Cristmas Carol movies.
one of the best: Penny Serenade with Cary Grant and Irene Dunn...
i believe TBS is the station that shows it for 24 hours...
Mine is the the 1934 classic, “The Thin Man”, with William Powell & Myrna Loy. A murder mystery during Christmas. What a Great Pic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Elf is the worst.
Miracle on 34th Street (the original) is my favorite.
Favorite- Nightmare Before Christmas
Least Favorite- Those stop-motion animations like Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer from the 70s and 80s. (at least that is when I saw them, I think they are much older). I remember they creeped me out when I was a kid.
Any movie with Chevy Chase
I also like Home Alone—only the first one.
Does for me.
Best Tie “A Christmas Story “ with “Bad Santa”
Worst “Scrooged” with Bill Murray
I like the 1938 version with Gene Lockhart & Reginald Owen.
Worst: The Grinch (with Jim Carey)
Totally against the spirit of the book....good thing Dr Seuss wasn’t alive to see that dreck.
