Die Hard (1988)

The film set on Christmas Eve divides opinion on the internet as to whether it should be classed as a Christmas movie. Well Bruce Willis has made our list!

The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)

Who doesn’t like the Muppets?  Gonzo narrates as Charles Dickens, Scrooge is played by Michael Caine and Kermit the Frog is Bob Cratchit.

Santa Claus The Movie (1985)

Dudley Moore as Patch an Elf that decides to leave the North Pole and setup making toys in New York City.

Gremlins (1984)

Billy Peltzer receives a a new pet as a Christmas present from his father, its a mogwai named Gizmo.  But his new friend comes with rules such don’t put him in sunlight, don’t get him wet and most important of all, don’t feed him after midnight.  You know it’s only a matter of time before one or more of these rules are broken.

Scrooged (1988)

Bill Murray plays a top TV executive in charge of running the station and it’s Christmas and that means a live show.  Yes this is the wacky comedy version of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

Clark Griswald (Chevy Chase) is on a mission to have the perfect Christmas, with all the family generations coming together at Clark’s home.

The Snowman (1982)

The Snowman is a must watch every Christmas, it’s simply magical.  It’s an animated film about a boy who makes a snowman that comes to life and takes him on a wondrous adventure.  It’s only 27 mins long and made for TV but this is indeed a MUST SEE this and every Christmas!

It’s A Wonderful Life (1946)

George Bailey (James Stewart) has reached the end of the line with no way out, enter Clarence an Angel yet to earn his wings to show George the true worth of his life.  A genuine Christmas classic that is enjoyed by many each year.

The Bishop’s Wife (1947)

Cary Grant play Dudley an Angel sent to help Bishop Henry Brougham (David Niven) who has lost touch with what really matters in life.  The Bishop is struggling to raise enough money to build a new cathedral.  In fact the catherdral is all consuming leaving his wife Julia (Loretta Young) wondering what has happened to the man she fell in love with.

Scrooge (1951)

Alastair Sim stars as Ebenezer Scrooge, there are many versions of this classic tale but none in my opinion quite capure the mood and atmosphere of the 1951 film.

Well its cast list consists of a few familiar faces. The DVD came out on 11th October 2021 released by Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment. I watched it just before Halloween! The Ghosts
