It’s the final episode of 2021 for Movies that Make Us and we’re discussing some of our favorite unconventional Christmas films. We all love National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Elf, etc. but we wanted to offer you some movies that you may want to mix into your Christmas movie marathon this year.
Jake selected Batman Returns and Edward Scissorhands that were directed by Tim Burton. He also selected the Lord of the Rings trilogy because the movies were all released over the holidays and it watching them hits a little harder at Christmas. Tracy went with the Dan Akroyd and Eddie Murphy film Trading Places, the VERY black comedy The Ref with Kevin Spacey, Dennis Leary, and Judy Davis, and a Christmas musical film centered around high school students trying to survive zombies in Anna and the Apocalypse. Val selected the latest version of Little Women, The Family Man starring Nicholas Cage, and Children of Men starring Clive Owen.
What are your thoughts on these films? We would love to hear your unconventional holiday films.
