Posted on 12/07/2012 4:42:03 PM PST by MNDude
What is your favorite Christmas movie and which do you hate the most?
Miracle on 34th Street (the original)
Otherwise the old B/W versions of A Christmas Carol, Christmas Vacation and Scrooged.
(don't think I've ever seen A Christmas Story from beginning to end)
Worst?...most(not all)remakes of classics.
Favorite is Miracle on 34th Street, the original. Tied with Die Hard.
Worst has to be Bad Santa
Worst: "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians"
(No. 84 on IMBDs list of 100 worst movies.)

To me, the “worst” was also very enjoyable, but it was bad, wacky, fifties B-movie sci-fi bad, special effects that made the original Buck Rogers look cutting edge.
So, worst, best, it really depends, lol. If you love bad sci-fi this is a great one.
A Christmas Carol starring Alastair Sim should’ve been the last one made. Masterpiece.
And I’ll say it if no one else will:
I love ‘Jingle All The Way’ starring the idiot from CA.
One of my favorites as well, just liked the acting style of Mr. Scott that’s why I picked that rendition. ;-)
My favorite, too, and I watch it every year. I also love the Christmas Carol version with George C. Scott.
3 year old girl on drugs was funny?
Not in my wildest imagination would I consider any of that movie funny
“I love Jingle All The Way starring the idiot from CA”
You are going to have to be WAY more specific.
YOU’RE USING UP ALL THE BAND WIDTH ON PURPOSE!
There was a Roy Rogers western that involved the rustling of Christmas trees. I think it was called “Trail of Robin Hood.” No, it’s not necessarily my favorite. Just thought I’d mention it. My favorite is probably the Alistair Sim version (1951) of “A Christmas Carol,” followed by “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
I never really cottoned to “Christmas Story.” It had some good moments, but I found it way, way too cyncial, and not really reflective of the Christmas spirit. Too acidic.
Reviews/comments are very positive. Here's the link (free download):
BTW I use VSO DivxToDVD (last free version here: VSO DivxToDVD 0.5.2b ) to convert MP4 to DVD format, then I use "DVD Shrink" to burn them to DVD.
(Call me odd, but I don't like watching movies/TV shows on my computer.)
Not funny in the way intended. Funny in the irony of just how awful it was.
Best are White Christmas and The Bishops Wife, Worst are Christmas Story and Bad Santa.
Christmas in Connecticut is pretty good.
