List: Top 3 Christmas Movies

This week on Episode 253 of the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed our favorite Christmas movies. We’ve been doing this show for five years and somehow Christmas movies have eluded us when it comes to doing these top 3 lists. There are plenty of Holiday movies to pick from that we’ve embraced over the years, and it felt like the right time to dive into what we enjoy about these films. On that note, what performances would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:

**Please keep in mind that we each had different criteria for our selections**


1) A Christmas Carol (1951)
2) National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
3) A Charlie Brown Christmas


1) It’s a Wonderful Life
2) A Christmas Story
3) Die Hard

Honorable Mentions (Combined)

Home Alone, Home Alone 3, Elf, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Lethal Weapon, Long Kiss Goodnight, On Her Majesty Secret Service, Carol, Tangerine, A Christmas Tale, Trading Places, Meet Me in St. Louis, Jingle All the Way, The Polar Express, The Santa Clause, Christmas in Connecticut, Miracle on 34th Street, White Christmas, Muppet Christmas Carol, Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer, How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Hopefully you guys enjoyed our lists and if you agree or disagree with us, let us know in the comment section below.
