  • Favourite christmas movie

    What's everyone's favourite? Mine is Die Hard. It has become a tradition on Christmas eve. Prepare most of the Christmas dinner whilst listening to the Santa phone in on the radio. wrap presents then relax with a bottle of Rosey nosey or Ba humbug whilst watching Die Hard. Have found that i am tending to fall asleep before I get to the end these days though. Must be getting old.

      Between 70s to 90s it would be 'Trading Places' ( it was set at Xmas anyway ).

      My favourite ever would be 'It's A Wonderful Life'.
      Brilliant film!

                  It's got be "The Snowman". Christmas just isn't the same without it.

                  For epic movies, Gone With The Wind does it for me. Titanic too.

                      How could I have forgotten - The Sound Of Music. Christopher Plummer was never more dashing. Sigh.

                          Ikiru (1952), a Japanese movie by Akira Kurosawa.

                          Part of the film is set over the Xmas period with a few festive scenes but the final scene with Takashi Shimura sat alone on the child's swing with the snow falling all around him is very emotional and very uplifting.

                          It has a sentiment which is shared with another Xmas classic, It's A Wonderful Life but I would recommend this one if you don't mind the subtitles (and why would you!). Be warned, have your hankies ready as you'd have to be a robot not to at least snivel at this terrific movie.

                            Add another vote for the Muppets Christmas Carol, I remember going to see it when it was released and must have watched it so many times since. Michael Caine is brilliant as always and the muppet characters are cast to perfection, Statler & Waldorf as the Marley Brothers being the prime example. I had a quick look through this year's Christmas Radio Times and I'm glad to see its getting another showing at some point this year, just hope I'm not in work when it's on!
