And the best Christmas movie is still…

February 3, 2013


After falling off the face of the Earth for a good two months, I was hoping for a Christmas miracle upon my return. But alas, the masses have spoken, and their love for John McClane remains stronger than ever. What can I say, the proof is in the pudding.

Maybe next year, George Bailey. Maybe next year.

Swell voting, folks. This isn’t over…

Die Hard: 24 votes
Home Alone: 20 votes
It’s a Wonderful Life: 16 votes
A Christmas Story: 16 votes
Elf: 12 votes
The Nightmare Before Christmas: 10 votes
Christmas Vacation: 8 votes
Love Actually: 7 votes
The Muppet Christmas Carol: 6 votes
How the Grinch Stole Christmas: 6 votes
The Snowman: 5 votes (much love for The Snowman)
Scrooged: 3 votes
Miracle on 34th Street: 3 votes
A Charlie Brown Christmas: 2 votes
The Polar Express: 2 write-in votes
Jingle All the Way: 1 vote (hell yes)
Lethal Weapon: 1 write-in vote (is that a Christmas movie?)
The Ring: 1 write-in vote (sorry, but that might be the worst Christmas tradition I’ve ever heard of)
The Family Stone: 1 write-in vote
Gremlins: 1 write-in vote
A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas: 1 write-in vote
Little Lord Fauntelroy: 1 write-in vote (is that a movie?)

Apologies once again for the extended absence, folks, but thanks once again for bearing with me. Things should be getting back to normal any minute now.

      Haha. One of these years, man, Die Hard will go down.

        Unless they start making good Christmas films again, I doubt it 😀

        Haha. I just can’t believe that A Christmas Story and It’s a Wonderful Life will continue to come in as the runners-up. It just can’t be, Tim.

        I do love those films, but i am a blood thirsty lunatic so Die Hard wins 😀

        Haha. Fair enough, Tim. Fair enough.

    My poll ended up with Bad Santa and The Muppet Christmas Carol tied for first place. It was a pretty strange result really.

      Hahaha. That’s an AWESOME result! Man, what is up with the internet and Christmas movies?

        I know, I just assumed that it would be a close run thing between It’s a Wonderful life and Die Hard.

        I’m just shocked it’s not between A Christmas Story and It’s a Wonderful Life. Those are the freaking essentials in my book.
