I watched one of my favorites a few days ago, The Christmas Card. My Husband bought Auntie Mame for me a few weeks ago on EBay. I watch it every year around Christmas. But we no longer have TCM channel, so I wanted the dvd.

Babes In Toyland (1986)
 -

This still definitely ranks as one of the cheesiest Christmas movies ever in my book. But it's one I still find myself sitting down and watching every few years or so around the holidays.

A Christmas Carol (1999) - While Patrick Stewart doesn't quite make it into my absolute favourite portrayals, he is the Scrooge that makes me the saddest. My heart aches for him throughout the film and I couldn't be anymore chuffed for him at the end <3 8/10

Snowmen - Other than there being Snowmen and one house with Christmas lights on it wasn't very Christmassy. But it was a gorgeous film. One of the best with kids in the lead. I bawled my eyes out. Really enjoyed Christopher Lloyd's small part too. 8/10

Snow Day (2000). Students steal a snow plow and fend off itís crazy driver in an attempt to keep school closed for a second day.
Not sure this qualifies as a Christmas movie. Itís just an okay film. I certainly canít imagine kids nowadays playing in the snow, ice skating, etc.

I remember P2.. i believe i saw it on TV about two years ago or something. Decent little movie, surprisingly violent at moments if i remember correctly.

I recently watched something similar, ATM (2012), about three colleagues getting trapped at an ATM late at night after an office Christmas party.

Anyway.. as of today (sunday 6th), one of our Dutch TV channels starts airing at least two Christmas films each day, mostly fairly recent TV fare.
I doubt i'll watch any of these (and i seriously wonder if there are people brave enough to watch all of them), but i thought it might be fun to list
the channel's schedule for upcoming week, so i feel i've contributed at least something to this year's Christmas thread. [Smile]

Sunday 6th :

- Once Upon A Christmas Miracle (2018)
- The Christmas Cure (2017)
- All I Want For Christmas (2013)

Monday 7th :

- Christmas Getaway (2017)
- Coming Home For Christmas (2017)

Tuesday 8th :

- Write Before Christmas (2019)
- The Christmas Contract (2018)

Wednesday 9th :

- Christmas Connection (2017)
- My Christmas Dream (2016)

Thursday 10th :

- Jingle Around The Clock (2018)
- Looks Like Christmas (2016)

Friday 11th :

- Road To Christmas (2018)
- Hearts Of Christmas (2016)

All I Want For Christmas Is You - That was actually super adorable. And Mariah Carey's voiceovers made me chuckle. 7/10


Arthur Christmas - I think the first time I saw this was late at night after a double shift and wasn't impressed. Much more enjoyable this time. Bumped from a 4 to 6/10


Christmas With The Kranks - Love this ball of joy. 7/10

From the TV schedule I actually ended up watching All I Want For Christmas (2013) late last sunday evening (apparently not to be confused
with All I Want For Christmas Is You that Helen mentioned), and it was dreadful ! [Roll Eyes]

I also saw bits and pieces of several of the other titles, and found out there were actually two films starring Danica McKellar (Winnie Cooper
in The Wonder Years), all grown up yet still easily recognizable. These two, Coming Home For Christmas (2017) and My Christmas Dream (2016),
were at least several steps above the truly awful All I Want For Christmas.. corny and predictable, but modestly entertaining.

Saturday 12th :

- Hope At Christmas (2018)
- A Bramble House Christmas (2017)
- Christmas Bounty (2013)

Sunday 13th :

- Christmas Under The Stars (2019)
- 12 Days Of Giving (2017)
- A Husband For Christmas (2016)

Monday 14th :

- Christmas In Evergreen (2017)
- A Storybook Christmas (2019)

Tuesday 15th :

- Christmas In Evergreen ; Letters To Santa (2018)
- Her Magical Christmas (2017)

Wednesday 16th :

- Christmas In Evergreen ; Tidings Of Joy (2019)
- A Christmas In Tennessee (2018)

Thursday 17th :

- Christmas At The Plaza (2019)
- A Gift For Christmas (2017)

Friday 18th :

- The Christmas Train (2017)
- A Christmas Hero (2016)
