A List of the 25 Best Christmas Movies That Doesn’t Include “A Christmas Story”? put together a list of the 25 Best Christmas Films.  But this one is different . . . because “A Christmas Story” isn’t on it.

Seriously . . . a list where “A Christmas Story” isn’t even considered the 25th-best Christmas movie?  Seems like heresy. Also, a lot of the movies ARE NOT family friendly.


Anyway, here’s their Top 10:

1.  “A Muppet Christmas Carol”,  1992

The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine).

2.  “Tangerine”,  2015

After twenty-eight long days of absence, Sin-Dee is back on the block. It’s Christmastime, and everyone wants to get into the festive spirit; however, Sin-Dee is in for a shock when she accidentally discovers that Chester, the love of her life, has been cheating on her. And to think that poor Sin-Dee has been making plans for the future. To save what’s left of her dignity, heartbroken Sin-Dee embarks on a desperate mission to locate two-timing Chester, and no one can stop her–not even her best friend Alexandra, who vainly tries to be the voice of reason. Now, nothing can stand in the way of justice. After all, who wants to live a lie?

3.  “The Apartment”,  1960


4.  “Gremlins”,  1984


5.  “Carol”,  2015


6.  “Meet Me in St. Louis”,  1944


7.  “The Long Kiss Goodnight”,  1996


8.  “It’s a Wonderful Life”,  1946


9.  “Elf”,  2003


10.  “The Dead”,  1987

A few other movies that don’t typically make these kinds of lists are on here, including the 1980 flick “Christmas Evil” . . . starring Fiona Apple’s father Brandon Maggart as a killer Santa.

There’s also Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil” and the John Waters classic “Female Trouble”. . . and the 1975 horror masterpiece “Black Christmas”, which was directed by Bob Clark . . . the guy who would later do “A Christmas Story”.

Speaking of Christmas, we want your Christmas card!!!
