It’s Christmas Eve and everywhere you look you’ll find lists of the top Christmas T.V specials, or top Christmas movies and sure enough everything on those lists will be playing on repeat all weekend. I think it’s time to change things up a little with my picks for top 5 Christmas movies that have nothing to do with Christmas, here they are:
Cute critters that turn into evil green monsters getting thrown into blenders and blown up in microwaves! Now that is my kind of Christmas movie. The best part is that it was marketed towards children.
4. Batman Returns:
The last of the Burton/Keaton Batman movies before we were introduced to Bat Suit nipples and butt cheeks, this one is underappreciated in my opinion. It features great performances from Danny Devito and Michelle Pfeiffer. Oh yeah, and it takes place around Christmas.
3. First Blood:
It’s the season of giving and helping out people in need, but First Blood shows us just what happens when you forget the holiday spirit and neglect a man in need….. Your town gets destroyed and you end up with a war you won’t believe.
2. Eyes Wide Shut:
The last movie from legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick features murder, conspiracies and a secret masked orgy. Oh yeah and there is also some Christmas shopping at the very end.
1. Die Hard:
This had to be number one of course. The franchise may have had it’s ups and downs but there is nothing like watching John McLane face off against Hans Grubber. Yippy Kai Yay and Merry Christmas!
