Christmas movies

Yeah, I know people are always posting about Christmas movies every time the calendar starts showing December up at the top. So do you really need another online post about Christmas movies.

No, not really. But if you are interested in what some say are the best Christmas movies, and how you can watch them streaming, keep reading.

Rotten Tomatoes has a list of the 65 best Christmas movies. Some are movies I didn't even know existed. Some are may favorite movies. And some are movies that some say aren't really Christmas movies. Spoilers: the Rotten Tomatoes list considers Die Hard a Christmas movie.

I'm going to focus on the top of the list, however. On the list are five movies that have a 100% rating. So, if the list is to be believed, these are the five best, and most perfect, Christmas movies. The good news is that all of these are available for Amazon Prime members. If you aren't a Prime member, they are available for rent or purchase from Amazon. But the top two are available on Tubi for free.

  1. It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
  2. Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
  3. Holiday Inn (1942)
  4. The Shop Around the Corner (1940)
  5. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1967)

Note that the Grinch is actually the classic TV special, where the Grinch is voiced by Boris Karloff and his singing is by Thurl Ravenscroft.

If you're wondering where Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is, it came it at number 14, three spots behind Die Hard.

If you haven't seen these movies, do give them a watch. They may become a regular part of your Christmastime Streaming Life.
