Christmas movies

Christmas movies are stocking up (get it—stocking? ha!) on my TiVo and in my DVD player. I tend to want to gorge on these as much as on baked goodies, but it's better to just pick a few to enjoy. There are a few traditional standards that I won't miss: It's a Wonderful Life (which I'm saving for a post-Christmas viewing) and Patrick Stewart's version of A Christmas Carol (I also like listening to the audiobook version so I can hear him shout "kalangalang!" and croon an off-key version of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"). TiVo also decided I'd like A Christmas Story (one of my brother-in-law's favorites), and I'm snagging The Nightmare Before Christmas because I've never seen it.

I'm also a big proponent of the non-traditional Christmas movie. Number one with a bullet on my list is The Long Kiss Goodnight (get it—with a bullet? ha!), which has a permanent place in my Non-Traditional Christmas Film Festival. A few others eligible choices are Die Hard and Die Hard 2: Die Harder, Batman Returns, and Gremlins.

Other favorites out there, traditional and non?
