movie Mondays–Christmas time

humbughollywoodEveryone does a list like this every year. The problem with Christmas movies, is… they’re all the same, all so darned sickeningly sweet, aren’t they? You have to have a stomach for those kind of things, and—call me the black sheep—I don’t. Make it a little different, maybe a tad . . . dark and I’m in. So here, then is my list of . . .

Top Five Christmas movies that don’t annoy me

1.The Nightmare Before Christmas

2. Bad Santa

3. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

4. Christmas Story

5. The trailer for Rise of  the Guardians. (Because a) I just couldn’t come up with another Christmas movie that didn’t annoy me, and b) I’ve not seen the movie yet. Maybe it will annoy me when I see it).

Looks cute, doesn’t it? Runners up, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and The Grinch, the 1975 cartoon with Boris Karloff. Because, hey, Boris Karloff. 🙂

So what can you think of any others to add to this list? What are you favorite Christmas movies?
