Are you looking for a great holiday film to watch? One of the best “Top 20” lists can be found at amctv.com.  And, the cool part is that you can ‘Vote Up’ or ‘Vote Down’ any of the movies in the list.  The list has changed quite a bit since last year due to the voting. It’s a Wonderful Life was # 1 at the end 2014 (and still should be), but is now #3. (I just voted it up!) Here are the Top 15:

  1. Elf – It may star Will Ferrell as a dim-witted elf, but the movie’s payoff is old-fashioned, familiar, and welcome.
  2. How the Grinch Stole Christmas – Boris Karloff’s dulcet baritone lends sinister charm to everyone’s favorite Who hater in this short, sweet Christmas special.
  3. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – Decking the halls and other traditions are all colossal failures for the Griswold family — riotous because it hits close to home.
  4. Home Alone– A game changer for the Christmas-movie category: it has action, like a zip line to the neighbors’ house.
  5. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer – This sixties stop-motion-animation movie is impossibly cute, right down to Sam the Snowman.
  6. A Charlie Brown Christmas – Charlie Brown sets out to find the true meaning of Christmas in this animated anti-commercialism classic.
  7. It’s a Wonderful Life – Whether or not you have your own guardian angel hovering, the lesson here is that it’s not money that makes you rich.
  8. Miracle on 34th Street – Uplifting without being cloying. It’s no wonder that this movie is a much-beloved holiday chestnut.
  9. A Christmas Story – This comedy satisfies two sets of audiences: kids (Ralphie gets his BB gun) and parents (it does exactly what they warned him it would).
  10. The Santa Clause – Tim Allen deconstructs Saint Nick — and reconstructs his waistline — as a hapless Santa in training.
  11. Frosty the Snowman – This holiday staple features one of the most memorably catchy Christmassy theme songs ever
  12. A Christmas Carol – George C. Scott plays Scrooge in this classic made-for-TV version of the Charles Dickens holiday tale.
  13. White Christmas – The follow-up to Holiday Inn is once again full of Irving Berlin tunes, with Bing Crosby providing the vocals. What’s not to love?
  14. Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas – It’s rather hard to say who’s the real star of this funny live-action version: is it Jim Carrey or Dr. Seuss?
  15. Holiday Inn – Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire celebrate a year’s worth of holidays, against a steady flow of Irving Berlin tunes.

Get the rest of the top 20 and place your Up and Down Votes….
