Groundhog Day was great. I'd say it's probably Murray's best work.

Die Hard was such a wondrous tale of holiday cheer...and it had guns!

Agreed... (However Lost in Translation was also a very good piece of Murray)

White Christmas (1954) - Because my mother loves it and if she is happy, I'm happy.

The Muppet Christmas Carol - Because of the childhood memories.

Never heard of it, but I'm quite curious.

Joyeux Noel is on my list.

Bill Murray - I'd say Groundhog Day and The Life Aquatic are his best. He was OK in Lost in Translation, but I didn't really like that movie - too much hype maybe? Was disappointed. He was funny in Scrooged, too. :lol:

Favorite Scrooge is Michael Caine in the Muppet version - tied with George S. Patton in the 1983 version. ;)

I dislike ALL the kids who play Tiny Tim - they ALL creep me out. :unsure:

I'm sure there's another holiday action movie I've left out, but the dialog in Die Hard is exceptionally joy-making when we quote it on Christmas morning among loved ones and family.

I am also a huge fan of Groundhog Day. I first saw it a few years and have been hooked on watching the movie at least once a year ever since.

Believe it or not, I have never seen " It's a Wonderful Life", despite all the hype I hear over it.
Come and visit Kylesburg City, please clicky!

I haven't heard of most of them movies. :blink:

I like all the Die Hard films but I wouldn't consider it Christmas film...even though it's set that time of year. Nightmare Before Christmas is the film I most associate with Kersfees. I remember when I was a kid and every year it showed on the same station on Christmas eve and my dad used to let me stay up late to watch it. I don't know why they put it on so late though...

Just last year I saw it on DVD in the UK and I was like, "Say what?! That I gotta have!"

I remember being well into Nightmare Before Christmas LOOONG before the stupid f**king emos got their hands on it...b*****ds...

EDIT: I just remembered that James and the Giant Peach (with that pesky pommy kid in it) is on every year too.

D'oh - Lampoon, of course! :lol:


I got the name of one of the movies wrong - it's Santa's Slay, and stars Goldberg of wrestling fame: It is now my new favorite, I do believe.

Damn poll doesn't work! Wouldn't let me vote for other.

A Christmas Story is the third one down.



Anyway, what about Guns of Navarone?


Also the Wallace and Grommit series. I think The Wrong Trousers would be my favourite.

That reminded me of Chicken Run which BBC sticks on every year. I prefer Wallace & Gromit to Chicken Run as the latter has Mel Gibson in it... Man how I wanted that rooster caught and killed... <_<
