Yippee Ki-Yay! Top 10 Christmas Films

1) Die Hard ¹ (1988, dir. John McTiernan)
2) It's A Wonderful Life (1946, dir. Frank Capra)
3) Go (1999, dir. Doug Liman)

5) Bad Santa (2003, dir. Terry Zwigoff)
6) Elf (2003, dir. Jon Favreau)
7) A Christmas Story (1983, dir. Bob Clark)

10) Home Alone (1990, dir. Chris Columbus)

It's that time of year. By now, you've probably already seen a few of these holiday classics. I find good Christmas films need to be re-watchable and relatively straightforward for easy viewing with family and friends around amidst holiday activities. There's a huge divide and variance on the level of Christmas-y feels to these films. However, they all have their charm.

¹ Die Hard, enough said. This epitomizes everything great and entertaining about action movies and the holiday season. Bruce Willis shines in his breakout role. What I love about the film asides from its witty, fun execution, is the sprinkling of holiday themes throughout and in its premise.
