Films on TV over Christmas

Post by Genericenemy » Fri Dec 05, 2014 5:00 pm

So with Christmas come an absolute metric tonne of films on TV both before and after Christmas. Personally its my main time of watching films because it is the BBCs main time for showing them, and personally cannot stand films with ad breaks.

Anyone got any favourites that they want to see pop up again or would like to see finally put on TV? Any films you know you will watch for that matter?
Thanks for being so rude guys, gooseberry fool you too. I'm off

I saw the BBC will be premiering The Avengers which seems crazy soon since it only came out in 2012.

ITV are doing the same with Skyfall. I think they're premiering The Dark Knight as well, which I'm surprised has taken so long to air on TV considering how huge it was.

A Muppet Christmas Carol, every year. God, I love that film.

For some reason I never bother watching it on DVD, though. Only when it's on at Christmas.

Slightly off topic, but still related to Christmas Films... Secondary School. 50 minute classes. Last two weeks of term and I swear to god I've seen the first 45 minutes of Elf about 300 times over the last 3 years... Does that film even have an ending!?

Doesn't feel like Christmas until I have watched that film!

Home Alone 1&2 always make it feel like Christmas for me, also love some of the terrible channel 5 fims that are every year and every week, just going to start watching "Mrs Miracle" and just finished "Hats Off To Christmas" and im pretty sure "Grandpa For Christmas" will be on at point soon

HOME ALONE 2: The best Christmas movie. Period. I'm a sucker for sentimentality.

Image

THE GRINCH

Screw Jim Carrey. The cartoon is where it's at!

Image

THE SNOWMAN

Peter Autry's vocals + stunning, ageless animation = the best way to spend twenty-six minutes ever!

Image

STUART LITTLE
Up there with Casper as one of the movies that made me cry the most as a child and up there with Matilda and The Littlest Vampire as one of the movies where I wish I had the character's mother. Looking back now, it's a fairly mediocre movie but great for nostalgia.

Image

ET: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL

Of all the movies on this list, this is the only one that STILL manages to make me cry like a baby. I usually consider John Williams to be a little overhyped but this movie is a wonderful, beautiful exception. I adore space-themed movies that aren't overly dependent on Sci Fi (eg The Navigator) and the "I'll Be Right Here" line is one of my faves in all of cinema. Plus, this movie gave birth to one of the most iconic games of all time. That in itself would have been enough for this movie to win my heart.
Spielberg's magnum opus.

If your favourite Christmas film isn't 'A Wonderful Life' you're doing it wrong.

Not really. Kid saving the toy shop so other kids can enjoy Christmas is better than kid saving his own house. Plus, in Home Alone 1, Kev doesn't actually beat the bad guys. The old man does. If the old man hadn't arrived when he did, Kevin would have failed.

Not really. Kevin had already phoned the cops to watch out for fireworks in the park. He had brought the thugs to the park so, with or without the pigeon lady's help, the thugs still would have been caught.
The only thing wrong with Home Alone 2 is that the hotel owners think there's a wild man with a gun in the hotel (ie Kevin playing that movie where the woman gets shot) yet they don't really follow up on it. Then again, almost all the adults in the Home Alone universe are pathetic. The thugs get beaten twice by a kid (three times if you include Harry's appearance in Home Alone 4), the parents are literally the worst parents ever, New York is full of prostitutes and the hotel staff are ridiculous :P

Ah yes, Die Hard amplifies every aspect of what Christmas is about to me, how could I forget its seasonal charm. (just because it features christmas doesn't make it a christmas film which is what i was getting at)

Die Hard is definitely a Christmas film. If it's not, you could argue that Home Alone isn't either.

Die Hard is an action film though, and just because it's set at Christmas doesn't make it a Christmas film. A real Christmas film has to be warm and cuddly like Home Alone, which Die Hard certainly isn't.
