    NATIONAL LAMPOON'S CHRISTMAS VACATION!

    THE BEST!
    Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny effing Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white a down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of aholes this side of the nuthouse.

    While the classics are always a treat, Love Actually has taken over and one of my favorite recent holiday movies. Great cast, great acting, music and like Crash, it is a series of separate vignettes that all come together in the end. I could watch this over and over.

    My favorite is A Christmas Story.  Though I love all the old Rankin & Bass clay-mation movies and of course It's a Wonderful Life.  How my husband only saw that in its entirety LAST YEAR boggles my mind.

    Re: Your favorite holiday movies?

    "The Ref" - funny, poignant, well-written and -acted and a welcome antidote to all of the treacly absurdity the season dishes out.  My only complaint is seeing this movie edited on regular TV...a travesty!!

    And btw, I don't particularly like "A Christmas Story"...and though I understand why others do, there is no way that it deserves its exalted status.

    You can't forget the classic ones! Year without a Santa Claus, Santa Claus is coming to town, rupolph, etc.  Those are the ones that bring me back to my childhood.  And my apartment mates and I never miss it when it's on tv.  Also Elf is one to never miss during the holiday season

    I vote for "The Snowman" from the book of the same name by Raymond Briggs. It is short enough to hold even the smallest child's attention and it's non-denominational. It is my Jewish friend's favorite holiday movie- she used to be a childrens' librarian here in Boston and told me about it. The book was available as a set with a snowman doll and the Celtic Women included it in one of their PBS concerts. I also love "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol" and "a Christmas Carol" with Alastair Sim (he also played Amos in the original "Cold Comfort Farm" on PBS. I also loved "Elf" and "Love, Actually".

    White Christmas is my favorite Christmas movie.  Christmas in Connecticut is also excellent.

    But I also watch some portion of the Christmas Story marathon each year, and I love A Charlie Brown Christmas.

    For classics, I love A Christmas Story, White Christmas, a bunch of the old Scrooge movies, and all of the stop-motion animation films.

    For more modern stories, I love Love Actually, The Family Stone, and Home for the Holidays.

    I have to agree with Miracle on 34th St as the best of the oldies, but some of the new ones like Christmas Vacation, Deck the Halls and the Home Alones are great too!

    Re: Your favorite holiday movies?

    "It's a Wonderful Life" is my favorite movie of all time, and "White Christmas" and the original "Miracle on 34th Street" live up to their classic hype.  Of more modern fare, I would say "Love, Actually" and "The Family Stone", while far from perfect, do an excellent job of capturing different elements of the bustling holiday season.  One pretty dull movie that has one great scene in it is the recent film "This Christmas" - there is a scene where the singer Chris Brown (pre-Rhiannagate) portrays a shy kid who busts out into song at a club - it's a great moment.  The Christmas movie that I hate the most overall though would be "Christmas with the Kranks" - it's my own fault for not listening to the almost universal negative critical reviews, but I saw it and regretted doing so.

    "Shop Around the Corner" never seems to make the list.  Tremendous ensemble cast headed by Jimmy Stewart,  Margaret Sullavan, and Frank Morgan.  Wonder script loaded with humor.  One of the all time best closing lines too.   Anyone who loves "It's a Wonderful Life" will love this one.   I think it's superior in nearly every way to the later, better known flick.

       SINCE YOU WENT  AWAY-- Terrific wartime soap opera from the producer of Gone  With the Wind--ends with the great quote from Defoe Be of good cheer and the Lord will strengthen your heart.

       A TALE OF  TWO CITIES, MGM version    From Dickens's novel  Indelible shots of the rudderless hero alone in the snow on Christmas Eve...  Come All Ye Faithful is heard onthe soundtrack as a continuing motif, and very movingly at the end when the hero gives his life meaning by scarificing it for the happines of the  woman he loves.

     Traditional Chrismtas movies are too boring.

     Mad TV's version of Rudolph the Red Nose Reigndeer is great, if you can catch it (no, this one is not for the kids).

     Die Hard was already mentioned. Also worth pointing out is that Die Hard 2 also takes place on Christmas.

     One that hasn't been mentioned yet and, alas, doesn't get a lot of air time, is Gremlins.

    One of the films I always enjoyed as a boy that has seemed to have fallen off the radar is The Homecoming, which was the forerunner of The Waltons TV series.
