I think most X-mas movies are kind of cheesey, but I guess Home Alone 1 and 2 are my favorite X-mas movies.

I've only seen ELF once and hope to see it again this year.
As for others I'd say National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and Jim Cary's The Grinch.

And for god's sake, never never ever say "A Christmas Story" is great. >.< Just thinking of that movie makes me want to shoot my brains out. How is any of that movie funny?!?! I see even a little bit and I can just feel my brain cells dying in agony.

I'm sorry but X-mas movies aren't supposed to be funny, they're supposed to give you a warm gooey feeling inside when you watch them and convince you that this commercialized holiday that sends people into debt every year actually has a deep spiritual meaning. :lol:

My 12 favorite Christmas movies (no particular order):
-National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
-It's A Wonderful Life
-A Christmas Story
-Miracle On 34th Street '47
-Home Alone
-Bad Santa
-Scrooged
-Love Actually
-Elf
-The Muppet Christmas Carol
-Joyeux Noel
-Holiday Inn
-Die Hard

Before anyone says "EF YOU! WHERE'S NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS???," here's why it's hard for me to consider it a Christmas movie. It's not so much that it covers Halloween as well, but there's the fact that it covers both holidays. While I will concede that it CAN be watched at Christmas, it can pretty much be watched at anytime between Halloween and Christmas. Same case can be made for Trading Places, another one of my favs with Christmas in it. Since it covers Christmas and New Year's Eve/Day, it's hard for me to justify it as just a Christmas movie as well.

Buddy The Elf. That movie makes me wonder what spaghetti tastes like with syrup.

There's a really good version of Christmas Carol with George C. Scott as Scrooge that was made in the 80's. I think you should hunt it down. And there's also an awesome one with Patrick Stewart in it too, but I don't know if that's on DVD.

Christmas On Mars, which is The Flaming Lips' cinematic venture into making a SciFi Christmas movie. Pretty dark, but it has a happy Christmassy ending.
