ok here we go, I figure if any group is going to be able to hash this out with some fun it’s well… you know. Do you watch any of these, predominantly, this time of year?
On at or about holiday-times, but does that make them…? One can argue that if the holiday itself is not central to events, then maybe not so much. But it’s easy to work around that and dig up themes or a simple, hey life happens, holidays or no. ‘At Xmas’ doesn’t necessarily mean XMas day,
I’ll drop a few in to start, obvious ones up front.
The Princess Bride
The Thin Man
Three Days of the Condor
I don’t watch any movies at specific holidays (unlike my folks who watch Christmas Vacation every Xmas) but as for what’s a holiday movie…
Die Hard and Gremlins are Christmas movies The Princess Bride is not a holiday movie
I haven’t seen Trading Place in a long time but I want to say not a holiday movie
I have never seen The Thin Man or Three Days of the Condor
I didn’t even know a movie of that existed until the yesterday when I happened to look up the song on Wikipedia after my annual listening and found out that the story is basically true! I’d like to see the movie.
The Princess Bride, Three Days of the Condor, and The Thin Man all take place at Christmastime; Trading Places from mid-December (around time the film started shooting the year before it was released) to just into New Year.
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Disney released that near Christmas, though it isn’t really a Christmas movie in spite of Father Christmas making an appearance in one scene.
