Our Elf is going to bring a new one on Christmas Eve, so I'm after some ideas.

We have quite an extensive collection already fsmile I don't think they make Christmas films like they used to, do they? Or am I just showing my age?!

LillyBugg Sun 06-Dec-15 07:51:35

Nope not like they used to! I love miracle on 34th st. But that's a classic so I hope you've already got it!

Muppet Christmas Carol.

Yep, watched Miracle last night fsmile

canto3 Sun 06-Dec-15 07:59:20

Already have the Muppets too.

Also Santa Claus the Movie, The Santa Clause, The Grinch, Elf, Arthur Christmas.

Home alone? Gremlins? It's a wonderful life? A. Few classics 😊

Polar express is really lovely!

And Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Olive the Other Reindeer, The Littlest Light on the Christmas Tree.

I'm sure there used to be a good Christmassy film almost every year, or so it seemed. Well, at least this year we can all feel warm and fuzzy watching Krampus shock

canto3 Sun 06-Dec-15 08:07:42

Oh, and we have Home Alone and the Polar Express, and It's a Wonderful Life. DCs are only 4 and 8 so Gremlins out!

Thanks for the ideas though, keep them coming....

When was the last really good Christmas film? Was it Arthur Christmas?! That was 4 years ago. There is definitely a gap in the market!

LittleFishBigOcean Sun 06-Dec-15 08:09:40

Arthur Christmas is very good, was out a few years ago.

I absolutely love Rise Of The Guardians and it never seems to get a mention. It would possibly need to be checked for a 4 year old though as its a bit dark in places.

fuzzpig Sun 06-Dec-15 08:32:49

I love White Christmas although it's reeeally long so we don't watch it every year.

Not a film, but for me it ain't Christmas unless I watch the Vicar of Dibley Christmas Special (the one where she has several Christmas dinners) grin

fuzzpig Sun 06-Dec-15 08:35:01

Oh yes Rise of the Guardians is fab! Pitch is quite a scary character though so agree it would be worth checking for a young child.

canto3 Sun 06-Dec-15 08:41:28

We already have Rise of the Guardians (was that released as a Christmas film, I wonder?)

Oooh, I'll check out Father Christmas and Groundhog Day, thanks. I don't think they'd last through White Christmas.

Yes ROTG was on in December - it was the first film DD saw at the cinema (she was 5). I took her and DSDs, and we went for a pizza hut buffet after - which became an annual tradition grin

ROTG was out in 2012 - so I think a proper Christmas film release is long overdue!

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation is my all time favourite, I think it's hilarious. Suppose it depends on the age of the small people in your house l!

Myfanwyprice Mon 07-Dec-15 13:14:11

Have you got the nativity films? They are definitely favourites in our house.

We also like saving Santa, although it does drag a bit in the middle!

We3KingyOfOblomovAre Mon 07-Dec-15 14:17:55

Miracle on 34th , is my fave.

I love Christmas With The Kranks but I feel it might be a bit boring for children.
