My favorite Christmas movie scene

This scene has nothing to do with Christmas:

The Polar Express is my favorite Christmas movie. Oh sure, Rudolph has its charms but the 60s sexism just grates on me. I love How the Grinch Stole Christmas but living with an unreformed Grinch sucks. For music, nothing will ever surpass Vince Guraldi’s score for A Charlie Brown Christmas but I don’t believe the Luke version of the Christmas story. Sorry Linus. Weirdly enough, I’ve never seen the Heat Miser piece. I can’t even think of what it’s from but I hear a lot of good things about it.

Still, I’m sticking with The Polar Express. It’s about the true spirit of the season and thoughtfulness and kindness. I’m going to watch it again tonight while I’m doing Christmassy things.

What about you? Take the poll and share your favorite.

  1. “Scrooge” with the one and only Alastair Sim.
    “It’s a Wonderful Life” as a close second.

  2. Any one of the Dr. Who Christmas specials.

    Every time It’s a Wonderful Life is aired an angel explodes in a ball of flame.

  3. My favorite Christmas movie is The Lion in Winter. Christmas with the Plantagenets – what could be better!

  4. The Heat Miser/Cold Miser song is from “The Year Without a Santa Claus”.

    My favorite is the Muppet version of “A Christmas Carol”
