Alternative Christmas Movies!

Robee J Shepherd (undefined) posted this on Saturday, 16th December 2017, 19:34

Getting into the xmas spirit, I watched... Gremlins!

Are there any other good xmas movies that are not your usual feel good xmas flicks that are worth watching?

Ones that I can think of...

Die Hard (obviously)
Bad Santa

Then I go a bit blank, there must be others.

Quite a lot of them:

Die Hard 2
Batman Returns
LA Confidential
Trading Places
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
In Bruges
Scrooged
Iron Man 3
Rare Exports

Those are off of the top of my head and some of them are a bit tenuous, but I'm all for an alternative Christmas film. What with Lethal Weapon and the ones I've mentioned it would appear that Shane Black has a bit of a thing for the season. Perhaps we'll see a Predator in a santa hat?

Some good suggestions above, Rare Exports is definitely WWAW.

We watched El Camino Christmas on Netflix last night, it's a good laugh and fits nicely into the Alt Xmas bracket.

Following on from the above, Escape to Victory, and Casablanca :)

I have watched both of them when on tv over Christmas hols, and did enjoy them.

I've always seen South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut as a Christmassy movie, even though it''s not set at Christmas, nor does it have any reference to the holidays. And it was released in the summer.

I think it's partly down to the snowy scenery, but mostly it's Marc Shaiman's songs and score. For example:



(Look at those trees! Those are Christmas trees!)

Wizard of Oz is another one I only saw for first time a few years ago when it was on TV, and really enjoyed it
