I'd say A Christmas Story where the kid almost shoots his eye out with the gun.

He's only 14 posts behind there.

Another film in mind is The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Good job Pete with the article. You missed Bad Santa though.

Actually, I got an advanced copy of The Polar Express and it wasn't that bad.

I wish I had time to play them!
All it takes is for me to have 3 or 4 days off then you will pass me without blinking Jonny!
Hmmm....are you playing the games on line and if so, which ones?

In all fairness to Pete, the article was written before Bad Santa was available to him on DVD...but that still doesn't excuse him for leaving A Christmas Story off of the list.

A Christmas Story remains unavailable on DVD in the UK. A shame, as it's years since I saw it. Worth an import?

Really? That is a shame, this is my favorite Christmas movie and I watch it every year at least once. I finally got around to picking up the the two-disc earlier this year and it's a pretty good set, and the only one that contains a re-mastered, anamorphic widescreen version of the film. It also has a good commentary track with Bob Clark and Peter Billingsley amoung the extras. The single disc version is pan & scan only, so that's just another reason to go with the two-disc edition.

May have to pick up a region 1 copy. Could do with watching a decent Xmas movie after having to endure Christmas with the Kranks...

Bad Santa has since been released on Region 2. Took its sweet time, but it's here now.

Why do Americans say holiday, for example the main title of this thread was Holiday cheer, why not put Christmas cheer instead.

I've seen a lot of films where they say Happy Holidays instead of Happy/Merry Christmas.

WHY WHY WHY???

Christmas is a religious time of year. by calling it holiday season it's making it less religious for the people who do not believe in the religions that believe in the christmas story
