Holiday Movie Recommendations

We're getting into the holidays now, and for many of you that celebrate Christmas there are a host of films out there to choose from. Here is my list of recommended holiday films. Now these are not all heavy with a focus on Christmas. Some only have the holidays as a backdrop and are briefly mentioned, but that's good enough for me and makes the movie all the more interesting. 

So here they are, in no particular order. They are all too different to really rate best to least best. These are all well known films so I won't go into any sort detail on why I think they are good. Just trust my judgement on this.

Christmas Story (1983)


Die Hard (1988)


Gremlins (1984)


Eyes Wide Shut (1999)


Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964)


Better Off Dead (1985)


Christmas Vacation (1989)


Scrooged (1988)
