Guest Post: Top 5 Holiday Movies


Hi everyone! When I saw Brenna was looking for guest posts from fellow bloggers I was eager to participate. I love her blog and stalk it quite often - so why not be a guest on it too? :) On this post I will present to you my top five holiday movies.



 
5- National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
I haven't actually watched this one in quite a few years but I remember watching it quite a few times when I was younger. It was hilarious and I just couldn't get enough of their shenanigans. Out of all the Chevy Chase's Vacation movies this was the only one I really could watch over and over without getting tired of it.











4- How The Grinch Stole Christmas

This is the most recent of my holiday favorites. No one could have been better suited for this role other than good old Jim Carey. I wasn't a fan of all of his movies, but this was the perfect role and I can't imagine how different the movie would be with another actor. I mean, those facial expressions are what makes the Grinch so much fun to watch.









3- Home Alone

Watching it now, I realize this one is a bit cheesy, but who (over 20) did not LOVE this one? I watched Home Alone at least once every Christmas for a very very long time - and if I happen to see it playing on TV now I would watch it still and enjoy every minute of it. I loved watching Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci get hit in the face by paint cans. And the glue & feathers on his face!!? - It never gets old. Really, it was brilliant!







 

2- Edward Scissorhands

Although this isn't Christmas themed, it's still based during the holidays and send a positive message so I still consider it a holiday movie. I still watch this when I catch it on TV and I love it as much as I did the first time I ever saw it. Probably more-so now that I'm old enough to appreciate the beauty of it all. It is not just one of my favorite holiday movies, but also falls in my top 5 movies of all time.











1- The Nightmare Before Christmas

I rarely spend a holiday season without watching this wonderful movie. As you can tell, I'm a big Tim Burton fan he has incredible talent and imagination that never ceases to impress me. The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of those movies that I would watch, then rewind the tape (remember those days?), and watch it all over again right away. It has a bit of everything that I love - Horror, comedy, fantasy, suspense, and most of all - magic. It's definitely magical and perfect for a snowy Christmas evening.






Wow this brought back some pleasant memories. I'm really in the mood to watch all of these back to back! Thanks so much for having me Brenna I had a blast writing this post! <3

Hannah said...

Great minds think a like! I did one of these a couple of days ago. :) I never really thought of Edward Scissorhands as a holiday movie, huh. :o

Andrea @ Cozy Up said...

Oh my gosh, Nightmare Before Christmas is my favourite too! I always find a reason to watch it, both Halloween and Christmas is when I pull it off! I was so excited when I saw that, not many people go for that. And The Grinch is on my list too. Great list!

Amy said...

I love all of those movies. Great picks!! The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my favorite movies ever!

Rebecca said...

LOL, omg all of these are so awesome! Well except number 1, because even though I've tried watching it a number of times I always get so bored I fall asleep. o.o Which is odd, because I usually love movies like that! I think Home Alone has to be my favorite, or the Grinch. Lol. I love seeing those and the whole family is usually benched in front of the TV when they're on! Great post. :)

I remember falling in love with both Burton films. And I think Edward Scissorhands is definitely a valid Christmas movie.

Giselle said...

Tim Burton is a mastermind!

@Rebecca: *gasp* you found The Nightmare Before Christmas boring? *double gasp* Home Alone was pretty freaking awesome!

@Hannah: I always watch Edward Scissorhand during the holidays but it appears in most holiday movie list so since it's like one of my fav. movies ever I had to include it here :) The movie does happen during winter and Xmas too.

I watched Home Alone every year during Christmas for a long time too. Edward Scissorhands and How The Grinch Stole Christmas are really awesome as well :)

janiera said...

The Grinch is one of my favorites for sure! I never thought of Edward Scissorhands as a Christmas movie but it is still one of my faves!

Sophia Rose said...

I have watched all these movies and thought them good, but I'm such a traditionalist in my fav Christmas movies list that I think only Christmas Vacation (not a traditional style movie, I know- odd quirk in me) would have made my list.

Fun post! Thanks for sharing!

I love all of those movies

Christa @ Hooked on Books said...

I love a Nightmare Before Christmas! I'm currently debating whether I should buy a pair of Jack Skeleton slippers I saw at the mall...

Also I've never really thought of Edward Scissorhands as a movie to watch during the holidays but you're right it totally works! Adding that to the rotation!
