Top 5 Festive films


#1
  1. Elf - Sporadically funny, but actually a bad film (like, who is the bad guy?)
  2. The Santa Clause (I’m a big Tim Allen fan, what can I say)
  3. The Muppets Christmas Carol (How can you not love the Ghost of Christmas Present)
  4. Die Hard (I feel like there’s backlash about this not being a Christmas film this year, but whatever)
  5. Home Alone (Because it’s great)

#2

So you think your #1 is a bad film…?


#3

Wait, no, I swear I reversed the numbering - Home Alone is number one, Elf was number five.


#4

Today is going brilliantly.


#5

Ha, Discourse doesn’t let you do lists in reverse order!

NUMBER 5: Love Actually
NUMBER 4: The Grinch
NUMBER 3: The Muppet Christmas Carol
NUMBER 2: Home Alone 2: Lost In New York
NUMBER 1: Home Alone

(I’ve never seen Elf :scream:)


#6

Really? Did I actually type it out properly then it reversed it?


#7

It’s a wonderful life, nightmare before Christmas, die hard and/or lethal weapon, gremlins, miracle on 34th street (the 40s version, not that one with the annoying kid).


#8

In no real order

Die Hard
Die Hard 2 - die harder
Elf
Jingle All the Way
Nativity


#9

(Fuck it, I actually like Love Actually. There are some shit storylines but some that I genuinely like.)

Oh and honourable mention to Arthur Christmas, which hass a decent stab at explaining how Santa manages to deliver all the presents.

#14

I’m with you with your choices, and will throw in

  1. Jingle all the way - so bad it’s good
  2. Christmas with the Kranks - not great but Tim Allen trying to eat after botox is a genuine LOL
  3. Scrooged - great
  4. Maybe not technically a film but The Stickman BBC adaptation is fantastic
  5. The Grinch. Underrated and really good

#15

You fucking idiots!

Christmas Vacation.
Some others.


#16
  1. The Apartment
  2. Die Hard
  3. It’s a wonderful life
  4. A Charlie Brown Christmas

Favourite film to watch around Christmas time is actually Planes, Trains and Automobiles, but that’s Thanksgiving innit.
