After yesterdays Shambles of a blog post I am very happy to have a more relaxing article to write you. Today i will be sharing my pick of the top 10 Christmas films. I must add that i have only included the well known ones as I have seem hundreds of little known ones (thanks to Channel 5) and to be honest, they all share the same story line: Girl loses Christmas spirit, finds it in a man. Don’t get me wrong, I love them and do entirely enjoy them but…I mean… they could mix it up a bit.
I have actually just returned from a Carol Service which was lovely and has made me feel all warm inside so I am officially ready for Christmas (although I will be praying that my mums Christmas present arrives on time!)
Anyway, let us begin, I have decided to order the following most popular Christmas films from that I like most to least: Elf, Home Alone, It’s a Wonderful Life, Love Actually, The Polar Express, White Christmas, The Muppets Christmas Carol, The Grinch, Jingle All The Way, The Holiday, Arthur Christmas and Nativity!… those that have “their eye on the ball” will realize that there are 12 films listed. I know, a travesty, but if you want an honest “TOP 10” then just ignore the first 2.
So just to get it out the way with, this is the order I personally would like to put them in:
The Muppets Christmas Carol
The Polar Express
It’s a Wonderful Life
Jingle All The Way
But… like all great blogists…bloggers…I must be scientific with my justification so I have rated them in 3 categories and then put them into order after adding them all up. The 3 categories are: Christmassyness, How much I like them and How likely I am to watch them this Christmas (very self-centered, I know!)
So with that in mind, this is the new order from highest to lowest points:
29 – The Grinch
28 – Arthur Christmas, The Muppets Christmas Carol, Nativity!, Elf
27 – Love Actually
25 – The Holiday
24 – The Polar Express
23 – White Christmas
17 – Jingle all the way
16 – It’s a Wonderful Life, Home Alone
I mean that should be blasphemy, to put a classic such as “It’s a Wonderful Life” AT THE BOTTOM!
But anyway, still happy Home Alones down there,
Merry Natsmas (half way there!!!)
