[Celluloid Hero]‘s Top 5 Holiday Movies

Be sure to make some time during this holiday weekend to get out some blankets, make some hot chocolate, and curl up on the couch to enjoy these holiday favorites!

Home Alone.

Admittedly, an obvious choice. Still, just because it’s obvious doesn’t mean it should be barred from making my list.

 

How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

Keep your live-action Jim Carrey nonsense, I’ll stick with the classic animated version. Awesome trivia – the guy who sings “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” is also the original voice of Tony the Tiger! And his name is Thurl Ravenscroft, which might be the single coolest name in the history of names.

 

Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Rankin/Bass Productions cranked out a bunch of holiday stop-motion movies, but “Rudolph” was the first and still the best.

 

The Nightmare Before Christmas.

A rare double-holiday combination, appropriate to watch on both Halloween and Christmas. A great story combined with excellent music by Danny Elfman, and of course the beautiful stop-motion animation make for a real classic.

 

The Muppet Christmas Carol.

Dickens’ “Christmas Carol” is one of the mainstays of the season, and has been made into a movie over twenty times. Michael Caine is my favorite actor to portray Scrooge. Instead of an over-the-top gruffness, Caine just plays him ice cold. Also, I admittedly have a soft spot for everything Muppet-related.

Honorable Mention:

A Christmas Story.

Sorry, sorry, sorry. I know many of you screamed in outrage that this didn’t make the list, but honestly…television has ruined this for me. Twenty-four hours of this movie in a row is just overkill. I know this movie by heart, and I never even tried. Sure, it’s still a good one, but I couldn’t get it to crack my Top5.
