Guys, we live in an age where Christmas flicks abound. It's almost as if you have to plan which ones you want to see before Christmas. And the clock is ticking so it's time to prioritize!
To help you with your Christmas Video Viewing we created our very own top ten list. You're welcome.
1.) A Charlie Brown Christmas. True story: You are not allowed to legally have a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree unless you have seen this film and understand it's reference. Rules are rules. See this movie. I'm pretty sure this is part of the U.S. Immigration policy for citizenship.
2.) A Christmas Story. Like the Charlie Brown Christmas tree, you are not legally allowed to say, "I double-dog-dare-ya," or reference the "coup de grace of all dares, the sinister triple-dog-dare." Yep, more immigration rules, FYI.
You can laugh throughout this entire film. With a villain named, "Scut Farkus," how could you not?
3.) The Santa Clause. Tim Allen. He's just the best. Watching him get all fat and jolly just does the body good. How he always makes fun of Neil and his sweaters, and goes from being a mediocre weekend dad to the world's greatest dad--the best.!
4.) It's A Wonderful Life. Oh George Bailey. So ahead of his time. It's a sad movie, and at different seasons in life it can be hard to see. But it's a wonderful movie because it resonates with the insecurities, fear, and disenchantment that many of us feel during the holidays.
5.) Elf. It has to be said: Elf is the best Christmas movie of all time. we could watch it over and over again and laugh more heartily with each time. It's simply the best.
And the next time you screw up, and I mean royally screw up, just say out loud, "I'm a cotton-headed ninny muggins." It'll fix it 100%.
6.) Home Alone . There's been like a bazillion sequels and spinoffs of this cult classic, but the first one is best. Did you know it's been 25 years since this film came out?? Crazy, right?
7.) Mickey's Christmas Carol. I know, I know. There are tons of versions available for the Christmas Carol. We just happen to like the Mickey Mouse one best. Maybe because it takes some dark stuff and puts a good ol' Disney spin on it.
8.) How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Now, we like both versions of this flick. The old school animated one is just classic, but then again we think Jim Carrey was made to be in Dr. Seuss adaptations. Which one do you like best?
9.) The Holiday. Ok, this isn't really a Christmas movie, but it kind of ends with Christmas and it's just one of our favorite romantic comedies. Jack Black and Jude Law in the same movie. It's like the best of both worlds.
10.) White Christmas. Shucks. The costumes, the choreography---sigh. I wish I could live in that movie and dance with Danny Kaye for about 20 minutes. Then I'd have Bing Crosby sing me to sleep with his good ol' "Counting My Blessings" lullaby.
Well, there you have it. Our top ten. Now scurry off and watch those wonderful flicks!
We wish you a very joyful and happy holiday season!
