Amazing Christmas Movies of all time
Christmas movies are a strange breed. You want Cameron Diaz singing
Green Day in an empty cottage in an English Village, It exists. If you want a
holiday movie with Arnold Schwartzenegger, you can have it. You want
near-elf castrations? Oh you better believe it exists. If you want many
movies that have almost the exact same title, but in some cases literally the
same title, this genre has you covered. There’s horror. There’s comedy.
There is never a lack of options good, bad, or confusing—that can fill the
many hours of the holiday season.
List of Best Christmas movies:
Queen Latifah kills it as a terminal patient mistakenly diagnosed by a faulty

culinary inspiration. The problem with all of that is, when you don’t have a
terminal disease and spend all your money, what comes next? You have to
2) Jack Frost
Sure, Michael Keaton gets a Christmas movie, too. He plays a man literally
named Jack Frost, who lived his life as a bitter, aging rocker and meets a
tragic end in a car accident on Christmas Day. A year later, his son plays a
song on his old harmonica and brings him back to life; this time as a
snowman. Bad special effects might make this one more of a horror film
than a heartwarming Christmas movie, but nonetheless, here it is.
3) The Santa Clause
Way to make a lovely holiday into a complete nightmare, mid-1990s
filmmakers. In 1994 a very specific Christmas fear formed for some
children: that Santa would fall off their roof and to his death. When Tim
Allen inadvertently causes Santa to die on his property, he has to assume
the role of the next Santa Claus. There’s a lot of body-shaming stuff here
that likely doesn’t fly as well in 2019, but this movie is featured in enough
Christmas movie marathons that it belongs on the list.
