Movie Night With HFG: Christmas Movie List

 

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Movies during the snow, were gathering together, with the warm of your heart. Here are Christmas movie recommendations for your holiday.

 

1.National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Decking the halls and other traditions are all colossal failures for the Griswold family — riotous because it hits close to home.

2.Elf

It may star Will Ferrell as a dim-witted elf, but the movie’s payoff is old-fashioned, familiar, and welcome.

3.How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Boris Karloff’s dulcet baritone lends sinister charm to everyone’s favorite Who hater in this short, sweet Christmas special.

4.Home Alone

A game changer for the Christmas-movie category: it has action, like a zip line to the neighbors’ house.

5.Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

This sixties stop-motion-animation movie is impossibly cute, right down to Sam the Snowman.

6.A Charlie Brown Christmas

Charlie Brown sets out to find the true meaning of Christmas in this animated anti-commercialism classic.

7.It’s a Wonderful Life

Whether or not you have your own guardian angel hovering, the lesson here is that it’s not money that makes you rich.

8.Miracle on 34th Street

Uplifting without being cloying. It’s no wonder that this movie is a much-beloved holiday chestnut.

9.A Christmas Story

This comedy satisfies two sets of audiences: kids (Ralphie gets his BB gun) and parents (it does exactly what they warned him it would).

10.The Santa Clause

Tim Allen deconstructs Saint Nick — and reconstructs his waistline — as a hapless Santa in training.

11.Frosty the Snowman

This holiday staple features one of the most memorably catchy Christmassy theme songs ever.

12.A Christmas Carol

George C. Scott plays Scrooge in this classic made-for-TV version of the Charles Dickens holiday tale.

13.White Christmas

The follow-up to Holiday Inn is once again full of Irving Berlin tunes, with Bing Crosby providing the vocals. What’s not to love?

14.Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas

It’s rather hard to say who’s the real star of this funny live-action version: is it Jim Carrey or Dr. Seuss?

15.Holiday Inn

Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire celebrate a year’s worth of holidays, against a steady flow of Irving Berlin tunes.

16.The Muppet Christmas Carol

The Muppet adaptation of the classic story is fun, sweet, and definitely appropriate for the whole family.

17.Scrooged

The Bill Murray renaissance began with his turn as ultimate crank Frank Cross. A Solid Gold Dancers cameo helps get the lesson across.

18.Christmas in Connecticut

A war hero has Christmas dinner with the Martha Stewart-esque Barbara Stanwyck (who actually can’t cook) in this holiday farce.

19.The Nightmare Before Christmas

Tim Burton and Henry Selickâs enchanting tale has all the familiar, er, bones of a holiday classic — love, redemption, and Santa.
 

20.Bad Santa

Full of expletives and sexual innuendos, Bad Santa upends the feel-good tradition of holiday movies — and it was about time.
I hope you enjoyed all of my holiday movie recommendations provided by amc.com
