Merry Christmas everyone! Christmas is upon us yet again, and as always, it is time to discuss my favorite Christmas movies. Unlike my previous Christmas movie posts, this is not a list, but rather several Christmas themed movies that are worth your time. Also, with the exception of a couple of movies, I plan to keep my thoughts on each movie short and concise, because I have already said plenty about each film in the past and because this is not a list. Also, while some of these movies are true Christmas movies, others have more of a Christmas setting.
It's a Wonderful Life
It's a Wonderful Life is the quintessential Christmas film; it there more that needs to be said?
As far as true Christmas films, Elf is my personal favorite. I will watch it at least once every other Christmas.
Of all the films on this post, Home Alone is the one that I have seen the most. From a critically standpoint, Home Alone might not a "great" film, but as a movie with a lot of personal nostalgia attached to it, I enjoy it.
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Another hilarious Christmas film, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is my favorite entry in the Vacation series, and one of favorite comedies in general.
As it has been argued for many years, Die Hard is not exactly a Christmas movie since you can watch outside of the Christmas season, yet it is set on Christmas and it has Christmas music, it can still be argued as a Christmas film. Regardless of what you think about the movie, it is a classic action movie and one of my favorites.
The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya is a sequel film to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya television series, which is also highly recommended. Like Die Hard, The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya does not center on Christmas, but rather taking place in the winter around Christmas, like. Of all the films on this list, The Disappearance is easily my favorite film; it is a near perfect mystery character drama. If you missed my review of The Disappearance, you can click here to read it. Another anime Christmas film that people often list is Tokyo Godfathers.
