Your favorite Christmas movies are screening this week and vying for votes in a festive holiday edition of the 12-Inch Poll.
‘Tis the season to put this poll out there, as here we are a week into December and just a few short weeks until Christmas. But I’m extra-motivated after seeing this list of America’s favorite Christmas movies. America, you’re letting me down. There are some real clunkers on this list. And since Die Hard came in first, all everyone will want to do is argue about if it’s a Christmas movie or not.
So I scrolled through that list, scoffed at a few of the favorites, then took the good ones for my list. Then I consulted two additional list I’ve recently compiled. The first is this list of virtually every Christmas or holiday movie or special available on the major streaming platforms this year. The second is this list of holiday classics that are returning to Showcase Cinemas this holiday season.
The way I figure it, if the movie is big enough to warrant a Christmastime re-release in theatres or inclusion on a streaming service, it’s worth considering for this week’s Poll. And while I’d love to roll out, say, thirty of the big-name Christmas and holiday flicks, that number becomes cumbersome when asking you to cast a vote. Paradox of choice and all that.
Your Favorite Christmas Movies: 12-Inch Poll
So I did what I usually do: made a list of 12 Christmas movies. An argument can be made for each and every one of them being an all-time great or a personal favorite. So take a scroll through the trailers and vote for the one you love the most. And if your favorite didn’t make my list, hit ROCK 92.9 on Facebook or Twitter and let me know.
