    OK Boomer :D

    Scrooged is from the 80s, like before some current members were even born. Elf is over 15 years old too.

    The new Klaus film on Netflix looks fantastic.

    Oooh...

    That looks awesome. Just the kind of gem I was looking for.

    Thank you.

    Christmas under wraps.

    It was on in June for some reason on some obscure channel and I ended up watching it.. very predictable but also quite fun.

    Is it a Christmas movie if it's just set at Christmastime? If so:
    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    The Ice Harvest - I'm a sucker for John Cusack films

    We watched Knight Before Christmas on Netflix yesterday, typical christmas romcom with some chuckles and a pleasing-on-the-eye Hudgens.

    I love Olive, The Other Reindeer

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0227173/

    Few seem to have heard of it/seen it. It's pretty short (45mins), but has a good voice cast and a good mix of kid/adult jokes.

    Because it’s so old and in black and white, this is generally true. I bought the colourised version on Blu-ray and it’s easier to watch than the black and white one. Whatever one you see will be superb. From the time when films had plots and dialogue...

    A good one to get your brats sat down with to watch at christmas is Threads.
    In fact dont save it for christmas - watch it anytime.

    Such a bright and breezy outlook the film has, especially around the middle where things get really bright and breezy.

    Those were the days, watched this as part of an English class as a young teen (the teacher was a loose cannon - she is/was a legend). Would come in on Monday with black eye/bruises from protesting (anti fox hunting/anti nuclear). Not one student bawled/complained having watched the film. The film sticks though.

    I'll never forget one Christmas (no lie) Watership Down. I think as it was animated a slight misjudgment - To be fair, not a peep from the audience. :D

    National Lampoons, Christmas Vacation :)

    Not obscure, but on the subject of Christmas Movies, I noticed Amazon Prime has Groundhog Day in the Xmas movies category: pretty sure it's set at the end of winter, so February or something :D

    I guess it does have snow...
