    Wife wants a non-sappy Christmas-themed movie torrent weekend.

    This means NO "Miracle on 34th Street" crap.

    Here's what I came up with off the top of my head:

    Lethal Weapon
    Die Hard
    Gremlins
    The Ref

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks!

    Home Alone is the best Christmas Movie out there.

    Home Alone 2 was ok too but steer clear of 3 & 4.

    I've heard very good things about Bad Santa, and am going to grab that myself. Anyone already seen it, care to comment?

    If you havent seen it but want something different then Scrooged Bill Murry is brilliant in it.

    Anything with Bill Murray is at least partially brilliant.

    Thanks all!

    But damn, Gremlins is a weird, depressing little film init?

    you should come to poland... in the christmas time they show war/action/gangsta movies on television all the time... all mixed with carol songs breaks. Maybe this is because the polish televison wants to manipulate the people to stay away from tv and celebrate christmas i dunno.. ;)
