Miracle on 34th
A Charlie Brown Christmas,
Hook, The Snowman,
Big, The Goonies, Swiss Family Robinson, Son of Paleface, You’ve Got Mail

Every James Bond movie ever made.
A Charlie Brown Christmas. Short but lovely.
But really there is only one movie to watch at Christmas. Already in your list. Die Hard.
Agree on Trading Places, and for those of us in the border areas “Escape to Victory” has to be on the list.
The Snowman – there’s a special anniversary edition out, I think. Must be watched with the David Bowie intro, NOT Mel Smith.
Also Citizen Kane has a certain Christmassy feel.
It’s a Wonderful Life a must.
Lord of the Rings
Life is beautiful ( La vita e bella )
Jingle All The Way – Arnie’s finest piece of work
No idea if it’s any good tbh, but there’s a sequel to The Snowman called “The Snowman & The Snowdog” being shown on Channel 4 on Christmas Eve’. Looks well worth a look if you’re a fan of the original!
A Christmas Carol – version with George C. Scott
The *original* Clash of the Titans.
