Every time a list is compiled, an angel gets its wings
Given the time of year (and taking a cue from an NPR story), I thought I'd compile my list of top Christmas movies:
1. It's a Wonderful Life
2. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
3. A Christmas Story
7. Die Hard
8. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (MST3K version)
So, what are yours?
EDIT: Well, I made a glaring omission - Trapped in Paradise. I'd give it an honorable mention. Not a cinematic masterpiece, by any means, but it does have that warm holiday vibe (and the smokin' Madchen Amick). Plus, it is easily found in Wal-Mart's $5.50 bin.
And based on your strong recommendations (and the fact that it's been one of those movies that I've been wanting to see - loves me a good rom-com), I picked up Love Actually. I'll give it a view this weekend.
