    Anyone like The Great Christmas Light Fight on ABC? That's one of my favorite seasonal watches.

    This.

    I feel like we had this exact conversation last year. I remember talking about not letting any kids that still believe in Santa watch this movie because of that scene.

    In general, if anyone thinks it's a Christmas movie, it is a Christmas movie.

    Thank you guys for mentioning The Bishops Wife. It's been years since I last saw it so I just rewatched it. It's such a great movie.

    I've been talking about Die Hard being a Christmas movie since before it was a thing. I've been arguing with people for years that Gremlins is also a Christmas movie.

    However, I had a discussion today that I just can't buy. The guy said he considers Goonies a Christmas movie. Nope.

    I don't normally watch these made for TV movies they make by the boatload every year, but this one looks cute and queer and has Ricki Lake of all people! I'm down.

    I was thinking about this earlier but how many actors can you name that have been in at least 2 completely separate and unrelated movies?

    Not like Macaulay Caulkin who was in Home Alone and Home Alone 2 but separate movies. Also not counting Hallmark or Lifetime movies because they use the same actresses year after year.

    I can think of at least 4. I'll wait to name them to see what everyone else comes up with.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    If we're talking Christmas (assumed), Tim Allen was in Christmas With The Kranks as well as all 3 The Santa Clause movies (all good stuff).

    Going back several decades, Gene Lockhart played the judge in the original Miracle On 34th Street (which, aside from being a great Christmas movie, broke ground for women's power shoulders) as well as Bob Cratchit in the 1938 adaptation of A Christmas Carol.

    Watched Black Christmas 1974 again and I never realized the implication of that final shot.

    Watched Silent Night, Deadly Night last night. It was pretty cheesy but enjoyable enough. Also that toy store in the 80s brought back memories. I lost it when I saw that Poochie stand

    Tim Allen was definitely one I was thinking of. I haven't seen any of the older movies but I'll believe you.

    Another one is Vince Vaughn in Fred Claus as well as Four Christmases.

    I can think of at least 2 more...

    Here's one I just thought of.

    Brian Doyle-Murray was in Scrooged as well as National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

    Wasn't it? Every time he came on screen with those wide eyes and said "Naughty" was just a little too on-the-nose.

    Apparently there's like 4 more sequels. I have no interest in watching them.
