    "Home Alone is a must watch every Christmas season. I've seen this movie so many times, but I can't imagine myself ever getting sick of it. There was such an excitement watching this movie as a kid and it hasn't gone away now that I'm watching as an adult. If this isn't on your best Christmas movies of all time List, you should probably give it another try!"

    "Great underrated representation of the tale "a Christmas Carol". Bill Murray steals the show and this is one of his better roles ever. He plays the scrooge character adding a twist by being the type thathe normally is in a movie. A little dated as most 80's stuff is, but I would recommend this as part of the Christmas rotation."

    "The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Tim Burton classic. It manages to be morbid and funny at the same time, making it appropriate for both kids and adults. I first watched this movie when I was a kid, and I've loved it ever since; I watch it every year! The story is off-the-wall, and it really holds up to the test of time. The animation used for the film is so unique and makes watching it even more enjoyable. "

    "I loved this show and it has definitely made my list of top Christmas movies to watch. I enjoy many of the classic shows but this one has an all star cast and story line that gives you that feeling of joy in the Christmas season. This show has become one that I will watch every year with my kids and someday, even my grand-kids. "

    "Gremlins captures a wonder about Christmas that's totally lacking in popular culture today. Many of the cultural references are dated, but the story of a 'Mad Toy' gone wil is as entertaining for kids as it was 30 years ago. One of the best."

    "Black Christmas i remember being on VHS. Years ago, my parents would rent a VCR from the video store and always get some kind of B horror movie. Black Christmas was one of those movies. I was a kids so it was rather scary. Looking to add movies to my Blu-ray collection i found the collector's edition on amazon. I grabbed it for about 15 bucks. I didn't think they had much for the movie to make it a collector's edition but to my amazement it was loaded with behind the scenes and commentaries."
