    Gremlins.

    OK - not good for little kids but it's a good Christmas movie. Same for Lethal Weapon. ;)

    I first learned about "A Christmas Story" a few years ago from you guys, and found it quite enjoyable (ditto for "Princess Bride"). OTOH, I was bored by Polar Express, and annoyed (as I am by most Will Ferrell movies) by Elf.

    YMMV

    Eyes Wide Shut - yes
    Poseidon Adventure - New Year's Eve movie, not Christmas
    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - never saw all of it
    Enemy of the State - ditto
    Catch Me if You Can - dull
    Life of Brian - Easter film
    Scrooged - yes
    Nightmare Before Christmas - yes, and Halloween
    Ice Harvest - never saw it
    Reindeer Games - never saw it
    First Blood - don't recall Christmas in it.

    Consider yourself fortunate. It was beyond awful.

    That got an actual LOL from me! :lol: Die Hard is my favorite Christmas movie.

    Who doesn't think of the beginning of Lethal Weapon whenever they hear "Jingle Bell Rock"?

    I saw Polar Express last year with my nieces & nephews. I was bored to death, and saw no reason why anyone would get anything out of that movie. Although, I suppose it's possible a child might enjoy it.

    Reindeer Games was a disaster. Ice Harvest on the other hand, was brilliant IMO.

    I looked up Ice Harvest and lo and behold, I had seen it (but had forgotten the name). It was indeed quite good.
