Fave Films shown at Christmas

Postby pip » Fri Nov 26, 2010 9:35 am

To compliment the other Thread here's one for people to Vote for there favourite films which seem to have found an annual repeat slot across Christmas.

These might vary nation to nation ( although the Irish will match the english closely)

My personal fave is

Harry Potter always gets shown around Christmas (although they've started early for the new one being out)

Oh, good call.

I like to watch the Harry Potter movies, as (much to Jack in the office's horror) I've never read the books.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
