I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:

Worst: Anything on the fucking hallmark channel. I swear to all that is holy if I have to sit through one more shitty wanna be christmas drama movie with Candace Cameron, Dean Cain, Lacey Chabert, Lori Laughlin or any of the other host of B list actors/actresses, I will burn down the building and put strychnine in the water supply! My wife actually tried to delete several of my games off the DVR to make room to record more of this tripe. And the worst part of it is, is that she thinks that the best way to spend an evening is watching these "movies" back to back, and I have to sit there on the couch with her as well! Sorry for the rant. I just wish the hallmark channel would go off the air... like forever.

Ouch. You can't win in your situation. One of my roommates watches the Hallmark channel, but she watches these movies to just make fun of how shitty they are. Which, is pretty hilarious and I have joined in on before.

"That move was slicker than a peeled onion in a bowl of snot." -Mike Burnop

Yup a no win situation. And since there are actually 2 hallmark channels now, she can record double the shite, compared to what she used to be able to record!

You, sir, need to play the mustache game with those movies. Put a fake mustache on the screen. When it lives up with someone's face, drink.

Add a mustache for each movie.

That's a good game, kudos

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

Favorite? Lots of contenders.

But just to get this out there: White Christmas is trash. That movie comes on and my wife's all like "Ohhh, White Christmas" and most of the stupid movie is spent with no snow at all. Garbage.

Are you saying that when Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny Fucking Kaye, that it was not actually the Hap-Hap-Happiest Christmas?

I have to disagree, for me it isn't Christmas season until I sit down and watch White Christmas. It is probably my favorite Christmas movie.

I watched wonderful life once, meh. It was crap.

OMG, take that back! Take it back!

Differences of opinion. Then again I also watched A Christmas Story and thought that is two hours of my life I am never ever going to get back.

Can we agree Die Hard is a great Christmas movie?

Die Hard for the action Christmas

Elf for the fun Christmas

And even though it's not a Christmas movie, per se, it has become a Christmas/New Year's tradition: About Time

1) Christmas Vacation
2) Elf
3) Home Alone 1
4) Home Alone 2
5) It's a Wonderful Life

Fun Fact: I can quote every line from every character of Christmas Vacation. I guess tThat's an accomplishment pretty sad?.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

How is that sad? If you couldn't, that would be sad.

...especially after I've seen it 782 (soon to be 783 times) tonight. That'd be some pretty bad memory loss.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

The fact that you've seen it that many times may indicate some cognitive something. Don't know if it's good or bad.

I can only imagine that you've transformed it into a drinking game.

I think the cognitive thing you're searching for is either OCD or perhaps Palilalia? I think it's bad. I'm going to the doctor now...

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

Oh, it's already been made a drinking game. And yes, I've been doing the drinking game version every time I've watched it since we first started playing it in the confines of Chasewood Downs on a cold Blacksburg night in 2013. For you, my friend. Merry Christmas...

CHRISTMAS VACTION DRINKING GAME:

Take One Drink Every Time...
•Ellen calls Clark "Sparky"
•Someone is wearing an ugly holiday sweater
•There is singing or bells shaking
•The swimming pool is referenced
•Clark is wearing a sports team article of clothing

Additional Rules:
• The entire group takes a drink whenever an advent calendar door is opened.
• You must yell "Shitter's Full!" any time you leave to use the restroom, otherwise you must finish your beer when you return.
• The first person to say "Get me somebody! And get me somebody while I'm waiting!" when Frank Shirley appears on screen for the first time chooses a person to finish their drink.
• The first person to stand up & fully complete the "knock on the door, peek in..." correctly WITH hand gestures during that scene gives two drinks.
• At any point in the movie, you can point to someone & yell "RUSS!" If they do not respond with "Right here, dad" they must take a drink (max once per person, this could get out of control).
• Anytime someone misquotes a line in the movie, they have to wear the Santa hat until it gets passed to the next person.
•When the movie is over, the last person wearing the Santa hat has to shotgun a beer & finish by saying "Ahh, It's good, It's good. It's good."

Well, I wanted to be modest and not toot my own horn, but since you mentioned it...

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

All Ernest Movies up to and including Ernest Scared Stupid are classics... Personal favorite is Ernest goes to jail.

I actually cried when the actor died. He made a fortune off of a car commercial character who made it to the big screen.

They are and Ernest Goes to Jail is also my favorite. I've said this before, but we actually named our dog Rimshot. And ya, Jim Varney was a good man. He would've made a hell of a Hokie.

Only one Christmas movie (not counting some Hallmark channel crap) has Sam Elliott.

That movie is Prancer.

Sam Elliott is a badass.

Prancer is the best.

His we're not poor we have apples speech is timeless. We watch it every year.

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

I'm not seeing it anywhere on tv, Netflix, or amazon. I might not get to see it this year.

Yeah, my wife would panic if she couldn't watch it so I went ahead and bought the dvd a couple of years ago. No problem. She also likes a really sappy one, A Dog Named Christmas, a Hallmark product, I believe, that isn't scheduled this year. While it is a bit too syrupy for me, even for a Christmas show, I will watch it and anything else with Noel Fisher (Meet The Riches, Shameless, and many more), who I think is an incredible actor with amazing range. If it doesn't show before Christmas, I'll be buying it next year. Gotta keep momma happy around Christmas time.

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

Not really a movie, but the animated version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

Something about the Hoos down in Hooville really makes me cheer on the Grinch.

Favorite Christmas Specials is a whole other thread, and it starts and ends with A Charlie Brown Christmas.

It may start with A Charlie Brown Christmas, but it would certainly contain How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Home Alone sucks don't @ me

I respectfully hate your opinion.

EDIT: ...on this particular topic.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

It's not that great a movie on its own, but it's gotta be the most 90's holiday movie ever made.

Negative good sir, I will have to respectfully disagree with you on that point. If I am to sit through a shitfest movie, the lead actress should be no less than Catherine Bell... Sorry but DJ Tanner just isnt in the same league. #TRUTH

Catherine Bell needs to lay off the botox/injectables.

yes, but at least her use isnt quite as egregious as some of them....

Miles Hall alum myself (75-76 and 76-77).

Little after you good sir. 2000-2004.

For being one of the smaller dorms on campus, Miles Hall is certainly well-represented on this site. 3rd floor 1995-98 here.

“You got one guy going boom, one guy going whack, and one guy not getting in the endzone.”
― John Madden (describing VT's offense?)

2nd floor, room 228. Someone had painted a giant 8-ball on the wall in the room, and for some reason it was never painted over...

2nd floor, 236. Back in the day, I had put up wood paneling over the puke-green cinder block walls, separated the room into two by hanging a tapestry, "borrowed" a couch from the lounge and re-covered it, and even hung curtains. It was nicknamed 'The Penthouse" and was mentioned in a student article in the Collegiate Times as one of the best rooms on campus. It may or may not have been known for an almost steady stream of blue smoke wafting out from under the door.

Nice, I believe the only time we were mentioned was the failed kitchen experiment. They tried to convert the second floor lounge into a kitchen for us, but for some reason, an asshole snuck in one night and smeared literal shit all over the place in there.... They shut down the lounge for the rest of the semester, and never did find out who did it. That was before the card access, when we had a night monitor at the back door by the laundry room.

3rd floor '12-'13 for me.

Has anyone seen this special that aired in 1995 on CBS? Cheesiest special ever, but my family watches it every year. Features a young Leslie Nielsen, Robert Downy Jr., and Kermit trying to find the perfect tree.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

Never heard of it.

You really must send us the VHS archival copy for our viewing pleasure.

Haha, yep it's on an old dusty VHS. I think the only reason we even found it was because it was on before we were going to tape Charlie Brown's Christmas Special. Not knowing how to work "technology", we found a diamond in the rough.

Add this one to the list:

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

It's a Wonderful Life and the animated Grinch are tied for number 1. The Homecoming is number 2. Die Hard is number 3. Beyond that....the rest of the field.

But my favorite Christmas music is the soundtrack to A Charlie Brown Christmas. Just perfect

Glad I'm not alone on here haha. One of my favorite moments of the holiday season last year was watching everyone in the mosh pit lose their fuggin minds to Frosty The Snowman at their Richmond show

Christmas Vacation, my dad was inspired to be a real life Clark Griswold and always filled our yard with inflatables and over the top decorations.

Elf, quickly became a classic for me.

Year Without a Santa Claus, who doesn't love the weird "wait is this a christmas movie" vibe as heat miser and snow miser sing songs about temperature and get into cloud riding demi-god battles for their mother's (Mother Nature) affection.

And of course for value, It's a Wonderful Life.

Year Without a Santa Claus is awesome, but not really a movie.

Subthread time: "Best Christmas Specials"
1. A Charlie Brown Christmas
2. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
3. Year Without a Santa Claus
4. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
5. Frosty the Snowman
6. Star Wars Holiday Special (for the unintentional comedy value, plus it's a great way to get visitors to leave your house)

Ah yes, I always forget these were originally specials. That said, growing up I always viewed them as movies as we would watch them as a family in VHS form.

Aint nobody mentioned The Santa Clause yet? That movie is great. The sequels...

The sequels...

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

No one has mentioned Polar Express?

We try not to.

Probably the first time I experienced the uncanny valley.

I'm pulling a RealDiehl and saying the Polar Express sucks, don't @ me.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

Santa Claus conquers the Martians.

The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause takes the cake.

Don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride.

By and far one of the worst movies I didn't walk out of.

I sat through the Spawn movie. And Battlefield Earth.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

The only correct answer is The Christmas Story, all others are fighting for 2nd place

Semper Fi

I feel like people either side with The Christmas Story or Christmas Vacation, but not both. I personally am not a fan of The Christmas Story and believe no movie in the world can compare to Christmas Vacation. We should do a poll and settle this once and for all.

EDIT: Looks like it's been done - http://www.bdcwire.com/christmas-vacation-vs-a-christmas-story-which-one...

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

While I am not a huge fan of The Christmas Story, I vividly remember waking up at my grandmother's on Christmas mornings to the smell of bacon and this on the tv. So I watch for the nostalgia, especially now that she's gone.

For any MST3K fans out there one of my all time favorite episodes is "Santa Claus" which is sometimes referred to as "Santa Claus vs. the Devil."

Sometimes I like to leave off the /s just to mess with people.

One Up

This one's decent but the first one is a better MST3K episode.

Sometimes I like to leave off the /s just to mess with people.

In no order:

A Christmas Story, Elf, The Grinch who stole Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas, the Bill Murray Christmas special that's on Netflix, Polar Express, Christmas Vacation, and the Christmas specials of my favorite shows.

That team sure did suck last night. They just plain sucked! I've seen teams suck before, but they were the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.

Totally underrated, but Love Actually is definitely a favorite of mine.

No matter. Seems like everyone loves Christmas!

Where is Lawson?!

Hahaha I am assuming that was meant for me. I can assure you it is as much of a chick flick as people seem to think. Give it a go.

im a typical dude in that I don't like to admit when I like a romantic comedy but I have to second this, Love Actually is great. Most guys wish they can go to rural Wisconsin and meet Shannon Elizabeth.

I've carefully combed through the comments and I applaud all of you for not mentioning a Hallmark Christmas movie. They're more predictable than Scott Loeffler's play calling and almost as bad as UVA football. Woof.

Hmm, well A Royal Christmas (2014) was slightly intriguing but mostly because Lacey Chabert was (is?) a total babe.

Christmas with the Kranks

In my top 10, maybe top 5 is "the night before". Very underrated

It's not Christmas until I watch the VHS tape with Garfield's Christmas and Claymation Christmas featuring The California Raisins, which my parents recorded including the commercials from 1989. Does anyone else remember the Laughing Trees commercials for fruit snacks?

Then it's A Christmas Story, Muppets' Christmas Carol, Christmas Vacation, Scrooged, and Muppets' Treasure Island.

Every year my wife's grandma hosts a women's-only ornament exchange and watching of White Christmas while the men do a craft brewery crawl. I definitely get the better end of that deal.

Are you related to me? We have that same recording from 1989 and used to watch it all the time. Same order. It was a staple for us.

Well we're at least VHS-bros.

The Waltons Homecoming: A Christmas Special is an absolute classic. My mother was from Nelson County, home of Walton's creator Earl Hamner, and boy she loved that show.

"Tajh Boyd over the middle . . . and it's caught for an interception! Michael Cole, lying flat on his back, ARE YOU KIDDING???"

In addition to several named above, we make it a point to always watch A Christmas Carol with George C. Scott. We wore out the old VHS tape and finally got it on DVD.

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

By far my favorite Christmas Carol. And The Sheriff of Rottingham as Fred is the shining roll.

I actually really enjoy watching Love Actually every Christmas with my wife and sister...

via GIPHY

How has nobody mentioned this gem?! Makes the '14 WF game look good.

I was wondering if it was going to get mentioned. I remember watching the TV special. First and only time I saw it.

1) Christmas Story
2) Die Hard
3) Three Amigos (has nothing to do with Christmas, yet it is a gift to the world)
4) Elf
5) It's a Wonderful Life, because Donna Reed was the 1946 version of Emma Watson
6) Grinch (cartoon)
7) Rudolph (because of Don Cornelius)
8-200) all the other movies
201-5000) those shitty Hallmark movies
5001-5003) the Home Alone movies. To quote Selma Hayek in Dogma "Someone had to sell their soul to Satan to get people to watch that piece of shit
5004) Scrooged- because the Bill Murray getting cremated STILL gives me nightmares

There will always, always, always be a special place in my heart for Emmett Otter's Jug Band Christmas.

I was the first kid on my street to get HBO back in like 1978 or so, and they ran Emmett. My 4th and 5th grade friends and I piled up at my house and we must have watched that thing 6000 times.

Leg for Muppet Family Christmas!! The turkey pointing out Big Bird to the Swedish Chef is one of the first jokes I remember as a kid.

Elf is a total knee slapper up until the Central Park thing at the end. It kind of fizzles out for me.

Leonard. Duh.

Agreed. It loses it's momentum there and gets a little dry from that point on.

That's one of the geniuses of Christmas Vacation; the movie just keeps getting better and better and it goes on.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Deck the Halls with Danny DeVito, Matthew Broderick, and Kristen Chenoweth is a pretty good one. It's a little corny, but overall pretty funny.

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

One of our favorites that nobody ever heard of is Surviving Christmas with Ben Affleck and James Gandolfini. Definitely not a movie you can watch with the family, very adult oriented. Gandolfini makes it hilarious. Highly recommended.

Die Hard is not a Christmas movie.

- The BoD

Mostly Agree with Everyone:

Movies: Die Hard, Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, White Christmas, It's a Wonderful Life, Love Actually. I haven't seen my favorite version of A Christmas Carol - Scrooge w/ Albert Finney. The ghosts were great in this one.

Christmas Specials: Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudoloph, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Animated w/ Boris Karloff narrating)

Run to Win. Pass To Score

I just played Scrooge in a production of this that ended last weekend. And while the ghosts in the movie are fantastic, Albert Finney is damn near unbearable. He sounds like he's in a Monty Python sketch the whole time.

As far as versions of A Christmas Carol go, I'm partial to the Patrick Stewart one.
