▲ List: Top Christmas Movies

In honour of my recent discovery of a gremlin, I'd like to list for you some of my favourite Christmas movies of all time. Some of these movies are not necessarily "Christmas movies" per se; some are set in or around the holiday season.

1) Gremlins (duh)
2) National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (the part with the cat eating the powercord still freaks me out)
3) The Rules of Attraction (because, sometimes, happy endings are lame)
4) Die Hard 2 (can't beat a Christmas action flick)
5) Miracle On 34th Street [old school] (because I have my sappy side)
6) A Christmas Story (after seeing this movie on TV every single year of my life, it's become a staple)
7) A Muppet Christmas Carol (heheheh)
8) The Nightmare Before Christmas (in honour of Japan's obsession with this Burton classic)
9) Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer (did any of you notice a slight sinister undertone in this movie? especially Santa)
10) Scrooged (Bill Murray is my comic hero)

I could go for any of those to put me in the Christmas spirit! You up for a Christmas movie night and cookie bake sometime in the next 2 weeks?

How about the one with the elf that wants to be a dentist? i think it may have been clay-mation or something close to that.

went to a reception at the japanese consul general's house tonight...way fancier that i expected (i should have known) but the booze was flowing, the speeches were short by japanese standards (and in english)and the consul general prounced his l's and r's almost perfectly.

Dude, "Rudolph..." is that movie! The claymation animation freaked me out as a kid. Especially the abominable (hard word! snowman's teeth!

Good ol' J-consul-gen. Love it.

Cool list. Here is a suggestion for a new Christmas movie released last year. "The Happy Elf" is an animated story that follows an elf trying to bring Christmas to a sad town. Check it out.
