The Ultimate Christmas Movie List! Classics

Best Christmas Movie Ever: Round 5. Classics!

Welcome to Round 5 of the Ultimate Christmas Movie List. LWKS is on a mission to find the Best Christmas Movie of all time. You've had your say on Christmas Comedy, Romance Movies and even Christmas Action Movies and we’re getting close to the final countdown to crown The Best Christmas Movie Of All Time, Ever. But we can’t do that without looking at some of the classics that paved the way for the Christmas entertainment that we enjoy today.

So, Round 5 is the Classics round… ‘And what defines a Classic?’ We hear you say. Well, it’s not easy to definitively define. To some, our previous winners, Home Alone and Die Hard may be considered classics, to others anything in colour is altogether much too modern.

To save arguments, we had to draw a metaphorical line in the sand, and that line is New Years Eve 1969. If you’re a Christmas Movie made in or after the seventies, then get outta here. The Classics round is not for you!

Scroll through our shortlist of the best classic Christmas movies of all time, and let us know which one you think tops the list! Think we’ve missed something? Well, you can let us know that too!

Winners so far:

Round 1. Comedy: Home Alone & Elf

Round 2. Romance: Love Actually & You've Got Mail

Round 3. Action: Die Hard & Gremlins

Round 4 Animation: A Charlie Brown Christmas & The Nightmare Before Christmas
