The Ten: Best Christmas Movies of All Time

Nostra from My Filmviews is bringing the holiday spirit this year and has created a Best Christmas Movie List relay. I get to be a part of it thanks to Katy, from Oh So Geeky, who gracefully handed the task to me! Find out which movie I decided to add to the list!

RULES:

* The list has 10 Christmas movies (in random order) and when the baton is handed over to a new blogger, he or she has to remove one title of the list (with an explanation why) and add one new title.

* Once that is done a new blogger is contacted who will take the baton and run with it, doing the same (you can reinstate a title which has been previously removed).

* As Christmas is in three weeks I want to ask you to publish your entry as quickly as possible to make sure the list changes as much as possible before the 25th of December. Add the logo of this relay race to your post and also add links to those who came before you making it easy for everyone to find all the entries

The bloggers so far: Marked MoviesKeith and the MoviesFlixchatterRambling FilmTwo Dollar Cinema, Dell on MoviesA Film a DayCinematic Corner, Oh So Geeky

I’M TAKING OUT BAD SANTA:

I’m sorry, I just did not like this movie nor do I have a need to watch it again every Christmas, which is exactly how holiday movies should be experienced – every year! Bad Santa has been taken out and put back so many times now but I don’t feel too bad about throwing it out again.. I have a feeling somebody’s going to put it back in anyway.

I’M PUTTING IN WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING:

This was the hardest I’ve thought about anything this week and I wasn’t really sure which way I should go so I went with what makes me feel the fuzziest – in addition to all my favourite holiday movies already in the list – While You Were Sleeping. And sorry guys, yes, another rom-com but there’s just something about Christmas and romance, and the joy of belonging to a family and ugh, mushy stuff you know! I just love this movie so much, especially that Christmas scene where they opened gifts – adorable! Ah, hell, I’m gonna watch it now!

And I’m passing this lovely relay onto Courtney from On the Screen Reviews! Good luck!

  1. Awesome pick! While You Were Sleeping is such a cute movie. I’m happy to see another romcom on the list! I felt the same way about Gremlins and Bad Santa, not really wanting to watch them every year for the holidays. 🙂

  2. Interesting, but understand Bad Santa not getting you in the Christmas spirit. I don’t think I ever saw While You Were Sleeping or only a small part of it.

    Thanks for joining!

  3. I never thought I’d hear myself saying it, but I actually quite like While You Were Sleeping. I wouldn’t have thought of it for this relay race but thanks for the reminder in a guilty pleasure of mine. 🙂

    1. Yaaaaas! I love to hear it being someone’s guilty pleasure, that’s so awesome! Don’t be afraid to admit those guilty pleasure movies, we all have those! 😀

  4. It kinda saddens me to see Bad Santa go, but I love While You Were Sleeping and I’m glad to see it on the list.

  5. I have never seen While You Were Sleeping ( a title which sounds all kinds of creepy), but I’m going to trust that it’s a solid pick. As for Bad Santa, f–k it, like you said, I’m sure it will be back in a minute.

    I know I’m weeks late, but going through this…I’m surprised no horror movies have made it on the list. Though, depending on your mood, rom-coms can be pretty f–king scary.

    Merry (late) Christmas!
