EWB's Top 5 Christmas Films


Recommended Posts

First, a few films that missed the cut.

Home Alone

Miracle on 34th Street


Die Hard :shifty:

Now, here's #5.


5. It's A Wonderful Life

As a pure Christmas staple, It's A Wonderful Life was marked by the great story, excellent acting from lead Jimmy Stewart, and an important moral lesson. All of these elements, plus annual TV viewings of the film, have helped the film become the memorable timeless classic it has become.

4. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Switching from drama to comedy, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation took the Vacation film series to the next level with more side-splitting humor than you can shake a stick at. It showed how disastrously funny the Yuletime holidays could be and set a benchmark for later Christmas comedies like Home Alone.

3. The Muppet Christmas Carol

As a heart-warming take on a classic, The Muppet Christmas Carol is a humorous yet enduring take on the old Dickens story. With MichaelCaine as the lead and the Muppets involved, it certainly had that already going for it, but the story easily transcended boundaries and appealed to millions upon its release in 1992. It still is remembered as a Christmas favorite today.

2. A Christmas Story

With the lovable flick A Christmas Story, audiences were taken back to another time and place and found lovablility in the kid played by Peter Billingsley. They found humor and joy from seeing what the kid had to go through to get that Red Rider BB Gun he wanted so much. The film found mass success despite it being a small film and has remained a staple of Christmas time.
