Everyone loves a good Christmas movie. Whether its an old classic or a new blockbuster, I’m back again to give you another Christmas top 10. This time, we are counting down the top 10 holiday movies of all time for you to watch this winter.
10. The Muppet Christmas Carol
Starting off the list is a classic. This might be a biased pick, but I’m a big Muppets fan. The Muppet’s rendition of The Christmas Carol is a fun watch. Stars include Michael Kaine. Kermit the Frog, and Miss Piggy.
9. The Polar Express
This movie is a holiday flick made for all ages. There is simplicity in the fable for children as well as a good plot line for adults. The Polar Express is a safe choice when picking a holiday film. However, the only flaw I can find in this movie is that the graphics are a little outdated.
8. Jingle All The Way
This Comedy styled Christmas film is filled with quick laughs and a lighthearted story line. With a star like Arnold Schwarzenegger, the movie is naturally satirical and a solid watch during the holidays.
7. Home Alone 2
As much as I want to say that Home Alone 2 is better than its predecessor, its not. However, this Christmas flick does a good job following the story line of the series. It also stirs up some new drama in the plot to keep the audience on the edge of their seats.
6. A Christmas Story
As one of the older movies on this list, A Christmas Story has its odds stacked against them. Nevertheless, Director Bob Clark does a fantastic job keeping the movie interesting with humorous narration and a realistic portrayal of a family during the holiday season.
5. A Charlie Brown Christmas
Coming in at the halfway mark is an animated classic. Everyone loves to watch Charlie Brown and his friends. Charles M. Schulz’s 1965 film is great for everyone with its message about enjoying the holidays with the people you cherish.
4. Home Alone
Home Alone was one of my childhood favorite movies. The comical storyline that takes place during Christmas is a good watch for the holidays. Home alone delivers many laughs and a little bit of nostalgia for older people. A great slapstick holiday film.
Will Ferrell as a clueless helper of Santa is a great combination. Ferrell’s naturally funny presence and a very back and forth plot gives the audience laughs and keeps them on the edge of their seats. Overall, this is one of those movies that is acceptable to watch year-round.
2. It’s a Wonderful Life
It might be a shocker to many older people that this movie isn’t at the top of my list, but this 1946 Christmas drama is still an all time classic. Frank Capra depicts more than a mere holiday story with It’s a Wonderful Life. A bigger message about being the best version of yourself possible is an overhanging motif that drives this film to new heights.
1. Die Hard
Many people may not even classify this as a Christmas movie, but I would have to disagree with those people. Die Hard is the greatest holiday film of all time. The amount of talent and plot in this movie is insane. McTiernan’s 1988 blockbuster is the most original Christmas story I’ve ever seen. Die Hard pioneered holiday action films and that is the main reason that it’s simply the best ever.
