Is this the Greatest Christmas Movie of all time?

December 15, 2011

You know I absolutely love movies, of all genres, and I’m a sucker for Christmas movies. Elf, Little Women (the original, please), Meet Me in St Louis, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Planes, Trains and Automobiles… any movies with some snowy scenes and I’m there.

It’s a Wonderful Life regularly tops charts as the Greatest Christmas Movie of all time. Of course like some of the films I’ve mentioned above a lot of it isn’t actually set at Christmas. But the Christmas scenes are probably the best, most emotive Christmas scenes ever put on film.

But what do you think? Does It’s a Wonderful Life give you that warm, gooey feeling, or do you have another Christmas movie favourite?

And by the way, if you’re looking for some movies to watch, you can now get live streaming for Love Film via XBox Live. Perhaps you can persuade the kids to cuddle up on the sofa with you and watch a Christmas classic.

    I actually don’t think I had ever watch “It’s a wonderful life” but for me what makes me feel all warm and fuzzy with Xmas joy is being all together snug on our sofa watching something that makes us dream, with the Christmas Tree’s lights twinkling in the background… and eating chocolates while doing so.

    […] To paraphrase Jessie J, Christmas ain’t about the money, or the cha-ching. It’s about a little bit of bling – sparkle on the Christmas tree – and lovely traditions like cuddling up on the sofa to watch Elf on TV, or It’s a Wonderful Life. […]

    I’ve never seen It’s a Wonderful Life either! My favourite Christmas film is Serendipity!

    I love the Christmas scenes in Brazil (Gilliam) with one, which had a Santa asking a little girl and what would you like for Christmas? I’d like my very own credit card…

    Do you know, I’ve never seen It’s a Wonderful Life! I really must watch it. I love all Christmas films too, I’m a sucker for them, even the cheesy ones. I think Santa Claus the movie is my favourite. Reminds me of my childhood Christmas times
