Eight Must See Christmas Movies

I’m sure many of you are at work right now staring at the clock.  You’re just waiting to get out early to beat the Christmas traffic.   You can’t wait to get home, sit in front of the fire, have that big family dinner, cozy up in front of the fireplace and watch movies until Christmas day.  Am I right?  Actually no.  It’s only Dec 2nd but it’s never too early to think about Christmas!

Hell I’m Jewish and I love the holiday.    And as we do every year, Unreality is prepping you for some of the best movies that will most likely be on your television during that special time.

I’m sure you know most of these but here are eight picks for Christmas movie entertainment….

A Christmas Story

No Christmas would ever be complete without a 24 hr Christmas Story marathon.  I’m pretty sure I don’t need to tell you this.  Let’s see now.  The movie was made in 1983 which means it’s closing in on 30 years.  Do you think that in 30 years they’ll still be airing it for 24 hours during the Christmas Holiday? I sure as hell hope so.  What I find so fascinating is that every year I do in fact tune in at least 3-5 times a day to watch certain scenes.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Many people argue that the first movie is the best.  I happen to prefer this one over all of the other “Vacation” movies.  I don’t know why I just do.  I think Eddie is at his best in this one, “Merry Christmas!  Shitter was full!”  Plus I just like that there were more characters than the previous movies.  It’s just an all around classic and a must see for me.


What holiday would be complete without a little bit of Bill Murray to make you feel happy?  It’s a great feel good movie and awesome play on A Christmas Carol.  I particularly like the fact that Buster Poindexter is the Ghost of Christmas past and the dude from Dynasty plays Bill Murray’s old boss.  You got Carol Kane and hell even Bill Murray’s brothers are in the film.  Just all around good times.

It’s a Wonderful Life

Speaking of this movie.  Come on.  It’s a given and if I need any explanation here then many of you have problems.

Bad Santa

Honest I could watch this movie at any time of year.  It really doesn’t matter.  Honestly it might be in my top 10 funniest movies of all time.   I know that’s a bold statement but Billy Bob as an alcoholic, depressed, store robbing Santa is one of the greatest characters ever created.  Plus the little overweight kid with the red hair is easily one of my favorite supporting characters of all time.  “It’s a wooden pickle.”


Any of you Will Ferrell fans out there have to love this movie.  Just seeing him happy all the time is funny enough.  Plus Jon Favreau directed this movie which really was his start to having an extremely successful directing career.

Home Alone

To this day I still love watching this movie.  Sure it gets a little dumber the older you get but it’s still a classic and I still tune in whenever it’s on.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

I’m talking about the claymation version from the 60s.  This made for TV movie was absolutely awesome and even in this technological age it still holds up.  Yeah it’s only an hour but it counts.
