- Page 1

Sure, most people choose to ring in the holidays with a classic Christmas movie, like How The Grinch Stole Christmas, The Muppet Christmas Carol, or even National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. However, the internet really likes coming up with unconventional movie suggestions, and as such, these 10 movies have become holiday favorites for plenty of people.

Read through the list and let us know if you think any of these really deserve to be called Christmas movies!

Die Hard

So it takes place at Christmas, features some characters learning some heartwarming lessons, and lots of decorations. On the other hand, MAN do a lot of people get shot.

Edward Scissorhands

The movie was released at Christmas, and we even see Edward carve out some festive ice sculptures! However, it's also dark, gothy, and sometimes kinda sad in that way we all know Tim Burton for.


Gizmo is given as a Christmas present, and there's tons of Christmas references throughout the movie, especially in the visuals. That being said, you also see a bunch of demonic little creatures raising hell, and some pretty grotesque gore effects.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Is this a Halloween movie? Is it a Christmas movie? Is it both? Is it something else entirely? Who the hell knows!

'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun.

The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.


You Can Live In The '10 Things I Hate About You' House And It's Actually Amazing

We all remember watching 10 Things I Hate About You in the late 90s and becoming completely obsessed with Kat Statford's rebel style, or Bianca's collection of cute sundresses. The Stratford sisters were iconic for us, and we can all admit that part of the reason was their absolutely epic house. So many moments in that movie took place in that home, and it just felt like the most iconic and idyllic place for this story to unfold. I don't know how many times I thought that it would be comfortable to sit on the porch of my house and

The former teen idol had roles in iconic movies like Terminator 2: Judgement Day, American Heart, and Pet Sematary, but now Edward Furlong's name is barely remembered. The forgotten actor was on the road to becoming a huge star, with an enormous career ahead of him, but what happened to derail such a successful career?He was first discovered in the early 90s, when he was cast as John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. He truly stole the show and held his own against Arnold, and managed to nab a few awards for being a breakthrough actor. TriStar PicturesThe
