Christmas Movies to Never Get Tired Of

Wednesday, November 26, 2014



I get pretty sick of Christmas movies before December 1st. A Christmas story plays on an endless loop for about 4 days straight and I get burnt out on the typical holiday movie offerings as well. Here are 6 festive films that you can enjoy all season but are particularly wonderful around the holidays.



Love, Actually
I watched this movie probably 8 times in the past two weeks. It is my absolute favorite Christmas movie and probably one of my top 10 faves of all time.  It's funny, heartwarming and really does show all different forms of love.




The Holiday
 A pretty recent Christmas movie that I came to love but somehow always forget about is The Holiday. Two women travel overseas to swap houses for Christmas vacation and to get away from their problems and somehow find exactly what they were looking for...and I adore Jack Black and Kate Winslet!



Edward Scissorhands
Maybe a little more obvious but Edward Scissorhands is always on our family movie night list for December!



8 Women (8 Femmes) 
In this French musical set in the 1950s, 8 very different women go to a Christmas family get-together when the wealthy patriarch of the family is murdered. This funny pick has fabulous vintage costumes and is a refreshing change for a holiday movie.




Catch Me If You Can
It's not exactly a Christmas movie but it does have a few important holiday scenes and I find myself always watching it around this time of year. Catch Me If You Can is the true story of a teenage con artist in the 1960s who works as a doctor, a lawyer and an airline pilot, forging checks and living the good life along the way. He is stalked by an FBI agent who is desperate to catch him and they form an unlikely life long friendship.




The Life of Brian
A silly tale that begins with very different nativity story from the Monty Python crew - highly quotable with a lot of good laughs!

  1. May I suggest you check out Holiday Inn as well as White Christmas? They are chock-full of lovely vintage garments you'll drool over (This velvet number always makes me gasp: http://filmfanatic.org/reviews/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/white-christmas-gowns.png). However, the old-school romance and witty humor really make them special. I never get tired of them!

  2. Great selections! I have to add Christmas Vacation, ugly 80's vintage, but part of our tradition now.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Great choices!
    As a matter of fact, I adore "The Holiday" - and I wrote about it. There's not only the magnificent harmony between the cast memebers, but the script is well written (some amazing quotes like "And after all that, however long all that may be, you'll go somewhere new. And you'll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade")
    ...and the English Cottage. :)

  4. I'm a sucker for musicals and two of my favorite, non traditional Christmas movies are Meet Me In St Louis and Mame.

  5. Terrific choices. I'm all for the traditional faves (and love most of them dearly), but it's great to shake things up a bit, too, very much including one of my (and Tony's, for that matter) favourite movies: Catch Me If You Can. That's an engaging, fun, superbly well acted flick I could watch a hundred times and never get tired of.

  6. I'm a John Cusack fan, so I spent last Christmas watching Cusck films that take place around Christmas.

    Three classic holiday films I'd reccommend are Holiday Affar, The Bishop's Wife and It Happened on 5th Avenue.

  8. Ahh, Christmas movies, I love them! Thank you for the list, 8 Women was new to me, so I will search for it. :)

  9. Good post! Yes, Christmas movies tend to be tacky and get old fast. My personal favorite though is White Christmas. It's not just a cute storyline, but it has dancing, singing, and fabulous costumes. So many different ways to entertain that it takes a lot longer to get old. :)
