never let that movie die. "Mother May I Sleep With Danger" will be a gift in all of my friend's x-mas stockings

Big "Oh Yeah" on the Alastair Sim "Christmas Carol". Or just read the book. Best line: "Beware this boy! For on his brow is written the doom of mankind".

"I beat the **** out of some kids today. But it was for a purpose. It made me feel good about myself. It was like I did something constructive with my life or something, I dunno, like I accomplished something."

I watched Rudolph (one of my favorites) with my kids a week or so ago. Until then I'd never paid attention to what a total creep Santa was in that movie.

I rather enjoy Caligula, wine, women and song!

Santa Claus The Movie with Dudley Moore Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964) Surviving Christmas (2004) hard to find a good Affleck movie (would have been better had Tony Soprano wacked Affleck off in the first ten minutes Fred Claus (2007) Vince Vaughn's best role since he remade Psycho (hahaha) I do like 'Silent Night, Deadly Night' (1984)

Frank Cross: Did you try staples?

The Wild Bunch. Warren Oates, William Holden and Ernest Borgnine are such Christmassy guys...

riverdrifter 4 years ago

Absolutely. They don't make them like that anymore.

I love Christmas movies and songs. " Miracle on 34th Street (1947)". and " I saw Mama kissing Santa Claus."

Since no one has mentioned it, put me down for Bing Crosby's "Holiday Inn."

"A Christmas Story" hands down. Every year, immediately after the Thanksgiving dishes are cleared, we all sit down and watch it again. There are so many lines that get remembered and re-used all year long ("but the bell rang," "they looked at me like I had lobsters crawling out of my ears"). While this was a ho-ho-hummer at the box offices, this remains as almost a cult classic.

Merry Christmas, and don't shoot your eye out!
