Saronti Advent-Day 5 Christmas Films
We’ve seen the Top 10 Christmas songs, now let’s look at the Top 10 Christmas Films.
In reverse order:
10:- Charles Dickins- A Christmas carol- The 1951 adaptation comes in at this spot, although the musical version Scrooge is always worth a watch too
9:-The 1947 original telling of Miracle On 34th Street in black and white.
8:-Gremlins- the first one in the series. Kids are scared by it and adults love it.
7:- Personally we would’ve put this higher, but Elf comes in at Number 7. Who can’t get excited when Will Ferrell dons those tights.
6:- Die Hard- although this is an action movie to beat all action movies, it’s a regular at the Xmas movie sessions
5:-ET- who can’t be moved by the sassy little alien and his buddy Elliot- and I defy anybody not to cry at least once during the film.
4:-It’s A wonderful Life- an utter classic in every sense.
3:- The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of Tim Burton’s true classics.
2:- Home Alone- the photograph of Buzz’s ugly girlfriend in the movie, is actually the directors son.
1:- How the Grinch Stole Christmas- proper Dr Seuss brilliance
What’s heartwarming is the number of old black and white classics that still top the charts. CGI doesn’t mean a jot when it’s Christmas time!
