    Bad Santa

    Don't know a lot of other Christmas movies, at least not by title.

    um... I'd rather watch something new at christmas.... makes it seem like we're getting what we're paying for with the tv license.....

    If it's old stuff I'm likely to watch then I've likely got in on dvd anyways.

    well when your birthday is literally 13 days before Christmas and Christmas (ie at shops and in some cases decorations) starts during October (or before) around this way you do kind of get a bit fed up with it...

    I'm willing to accept Doctor Who specials, I'm sure that will make certain people happy!

    What about...


    Anyone who hasn’t launched into a falsetto rendition of Walking in the Air whilst at a urinal during a Christmas parts probably isn’t worth knowing.

    I love The Nightmare Before Christmas, one of my faves. :) And Elf too.

    My birthday is the 23rd, I'm planning on a wild night in with a few christmas films, this thread will give me an idea on what to watch! :)

    Nightmare Before Christmas
    Santa Claus The Movie (1985) (the proper one, not the Santa CLAUSE crap)
    The Snowman
    That animated thing about Santa where he kept saying "Bloomin'" this and "Bloomin'" that...
    Flight of the Navigator (used to be played every xmas like E.T.)

    As far as Doctor Who is concerned...

    The Christmas Invasion ended nicely but Tennant was asleep most of the episode.
    Voyage of the Damned was ok. Some funny dialogue and that evil guy from Corrie got told to shut up.
    The Next Doctor was quite fun to begin with, stupid story and ending though. Cyber-king? WTF!!
    The End of Time... the ending was canny and David Tennant did some great stuff at the finish.

    Hopefully the newest xmas special will be a bit more... special!

    Battle of the Buldge (it was Christmas).
    Nightmare Before Christmas....I even have the soundtrack.
    Wonderfull Life. Not the colour version.
    Muppets Christmas Carol.
    Dr Who specials.

    The Bloomin stuff is Raymond Brigg's Santa Claus. We watched it the tuther night.
    The Bear is another good one....similar style animation and also by Raymond Briggs.
    Watch/read his 'When the Wind Blows' if you are feeling like topping yourself...dark stuff.

    If you want dark just YouTube David Firth's animation. The same mind that created Salad Fingers has darker recesses still.
