WOW!!! Wasn't expecting this kind of response!!!! :)


I'll double check these movies and add them in!! And to answer the following:


Charlie Brown's Christmas, our tradition every year. :)

Charlie Brown is a TV Special. I'm running a separate tournament for that starting next week.


What is the Holiday Movie Tournament? :)


Most of my favorites are already listed, but I also love Jim Hensen's The Christmas Toy and Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer are classics.

The Holiday Movie Tournament is a tournament I created last year, where Christmas Movies go head to head against eachother until there is one winner. Last years winner was A Christmas Story! And like I said above, I'm running a separate Tournament for the TV Specials. Rudy and Frosty are in, as is good ole Charlie Brown. If Jim Hensen is a Movie I'll add it to this one, if not I'll add it next week.


The House Without A Christmas Tree

The Homecoming


Bad Santa


I had Bad Santa originally in the bracket above, but switched it out because it got absolutely no votes! I'll addd it again........I thought it was hilarious!!!!

ok so what is the tournament? Is it a list of movies you think the networks will run before christmas?

I was about to post this question this a.m..... I :confused: either --even though I have been here a few seasons...

I think we need to know, if not for us, how about the newbies!


I was guessing that it was fellow-gotta-dealers trying to convince the OP that OUR CHOICE of Holiday movie was "good enough" to be posted on their list of all time classic Holiday movies......

but need explanation...

Scanner, I don't know if it matters but you didn't specify if

35-Last Holiday is the 1950 or the 2006 version

also if

46-Christmas in Connecticut is the 1945 or the 1992 version

For me personally its the 1945 version. I didn't know that there was a 1950 Last Holiday. I will have to look it up. Is it worth it?

Didn't know there were two versions, they never came on on IMDB or Wiki! Sry! I guess just pick your faves at this point! I'm crunching the numbers now!!
