The Justin Newbould Memorial Christmas Chaos pre-thread

Recommended Posts

OK, let's see if this goes anywhere. Same rules as Halloween Havoc.  Indicate interest, pick, explain, wait, watch, review. Anything with a Christmas theme or setting. If they exist, I'll also except anything relating to Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or winter solstice. If you look at the first couple of pages on IMDB relating to Christmas films, it is largely tv and cable movies with the obvious ones sprinkled throughout. And if one of those floats your boat, then pick it. If not, then do not despair. There are MANY films that will fit and they range across genres: film-noir, westerns, classic Hollywood, foreign films, action, thrillers, horror, etc. It only takes a little effort.

Having said that, I reserve the right to reject your pick if I think it doesn't fit the theme.

Since I was planning on doing a 30 day, 30 Holiday movie kick - this works for me.

I'll enter this, if for no other reason than to get the wife off of watching all Hallmark, all the time.

Are we counting TV Xmas specials, if they are stand alone and are hour+ in duration? 

For example, The Blackadder Xmas Carol.

I have sent in my pick.  If it is deemed thematic enough, I would suggest getting plenty of Kleenex before sitting down to watch it.

It is only 43 minutes. Gotta draw lines somewhere. I think anything feature length would be acceptable.

I got 4 lined up that I'd pick. but I figure they're normal ones for this crowd, and 1 kind of stretches the theme a bit.

I am trying to find something that is online to make it easy for folks and that is proving to be harder than I thought.

At this rate - someone is gonna end up watching The Christmas Prince

No, you nailed it. High quality picks so far.

I'm curious to see the list, and it reminded me of a film I wanted to see but death of Filmstruck may make that one tough.

Movie selected, I feel like most on this board would've seen it, but whatever, I think it's great.
