Christmas Story [DVD]
Christmas Story [DVD]
"A beautiful film depicting the childhood origins of Santa. Gorgeous snowy, folky setting. Perfect Christmas story and atmosphere."
The Bear [DVD]
The Bear [DVD]
"Raymond Briggs' The Snowman is a Christmas classic and this is every bit as good. Same hand drawn style, magical plot and finely constructed, stirring music."
Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas [DVD]
Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas [DVD]
"Jim Henson at his finest, down home country Otters at Christmas, great music, humour and natural late 70's style."
The Box of Delights [DVD] [1984]
The Box of Delights [DVD] [1984]
"Classic 80s childhood. BBC Christmas magic from 1984. Tons of atmosphere and imagination, though the story does fizzle out slightly towards the end."
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians [DVD] [1964]
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians [DVD] [1964]
"Often mentioned as one of the worst films ever made, it's also one of the most hilarious - but by accident. Great late night cult movie."
A Christmas Wish [DVD] (Digitally remastered in colour)[1950]
A Christmas Wish [DVD] (Digitally remastered in colour)[1950]
"Another hilarious, 'so bad - it's good' type of film. Hammy acting, silly plot, animated squirrel, lots of daft festive fun. Embrace it and leave your brain behind."

"Seen 'It's a wonderful life' too many times? But still want your 'Jimmy Stewart at Xmas' fix? Try this fine, Christmassy rom-com. The original and hugely superior 'You've got mail'."
Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer [DVD]
Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer [DVD]
"Stop animation, lovely wintry world of Rudolph from the 60's. Sugary and fun but also surprisingly funny in a more advanced way than you'd expect."
Better Off Dead [DVD]
Better Off Dead [DVD]
"One of the great teen comedies of the 80s that no one remembers. Some brilliant Christmas scenes and full of surreal and cynical humour throughout."
Scrooged [DVD] (1988)
Scrooged [DVD] (1988)
"Classic grumpy but hilarious Bill Murray performance as modern 80's Scrooge. Quality fun with some great special effects."
Scrooge [DVD] [1951]
Scrooge [DVD] [1951]
"Not just the ultimate version of Scrooge / A Christmas carol but probably the greatest Christmas film of all time."
Ebenezer [1997] [DVD]
Ebenezer [1997] [DVD]
"Scrooge rewritten for the wild west with legendary Jack Palance in the lead role. Not amazing, has that Channel 5 TV movie feel but enjoyable all the same, a kind of guilty pleasure."
3 Godfathers [DVD] [1948]
3 Godfathers [DVD] [1948]
"Re working of the Nativity story in western setting. Three 'wise men', headed by John Wayne encounter a new born baby in the desert. Sounds corny, but also a solid film from the master John Ford."
We're No Angels [DVD] [1955]
We're No Angels [DVD] [1955]
"Bogart, Ustinov and Basil Rathbone all twinkle in this convict christmas comedy caper."
The Dead [DVD]
The Dead [DVD]
"Dublin, 1910, a family gathers on 12th night for music and memories. Not much plot, more a window on another world and time with a very festive, nostalgic period atmosphere. John Huston's last film."
Fanny And Alexander - Remastered [DVD] [1982]
Fanny And Alexander - Remastered [DVD] [1982]
"Again festive period atmosphere from early 1900s. This time in Sweden. The first hour is a rich portrait of a household at Christmas. Beautiful to look with the humour of a Woody Allen."
Belle And Sebastien - The Complete First Series [1967] [DVD]
Belle And Sebastien - The Complete First Series [1967] [DVD]
"1960s French series, centered around a boy and a wild dog, set in mountain village. Good snowy atmospheres, with some christmas episodes too."
The Singing Ringing Tree [1957] [DVD]
The Singing Ringing Tree [1957] [DVD]
"Not set at Christmas but this kooky colourful 50s German fairy tale complete with princess, dwarf and talking bear is perfect festive fodder."
Alan Partridge : Knowing Me, Knowing You/Knowing Me, Knowing Yule - Complete BBC Series [1994] [DVD]
Alan Partridge : Knowing Me, Knowing You/Knowing Me, Knowing Yule - Complete BBC Series [1994] [DVD]
"Knowing Yule. Christmas going wonderfully wrong as only Alan could make it. Complete with Mick Hucknall and a perfectly mis-chosen song."
The Royle Family - Joe's Crackers [DVD]
The Royle Family - Joe's Crackers [DVD]
"There's been some exceptional Royle Family Christmas specials then a couple of iffy ones. This latest one blew me away how good it was. Best thing on TV last christmas."
Blackadder's Christmas Carol [1988] [DVD]
Blackadder's Christmas Carol [1988] [DVD]
"Rarely shown (or is it just me?) but it's so much better than i remembered. As funny as Blackadder ever was with a nicely handled twist on the whole Scrooge story."
Frasier - Best Of Christmas [DVD]
Frasier - Best Of Christmas [DVD]
"Somehow the Christmas atmosphere in Frasier seems the most inviting of all. One of the best US comedy series ever."
Some Mothers Do Ave Em - The Complete Christmas Specials [DVD]
Some Mothers Do Ave Em - The Complete Christmas Specials [DVD]
"So many good British comedy Christmas specials to pick from but Frank Spencer seems to have been forgotten of late. Tons of classic comedy moments in a Christmas setting. Suburbia like it used to be."
A Christmas Story
A Christmas Story
"Warm hearted, family Christmas in 1940s Indiana. 10 year old Ralphie and his world of snowballs, school bully and flights of fantasy. Humour for kids and adults. Good all round Xmas movie."
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang [DVD] [2005]
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang [DVD] [2005]
"A brilliant modern Film Noir set at Christmas. Snappy dialogue, twists and turns, edge of your seat pace and very funny."
