Best Christmas Films: The Buyer’s Edit

Home Alone on DVD and Blu-ray at The Hut

It’s the time of year where the reality that Christmas is just around the corner sets in. The stress of Christmas shopping falls upon our shoulders, plans for the family to descend begin to form and it’s only a matter of time before the arguments begin to arise about who is tackling the turkey.

We thought we’d take a little time out from all of this to focus on the aged old question; what is the best Christmas film?

We tracked down the busy DVD, Blu-ray and Steelbook buyers to find out what their top Christmas films are, they are the experts after all.

To give us the low down on their top Christmas films, we asked them to pick their top 5 of all time. Let us inspire your Christmas viewing this year from family friendly Christmas films to action packed adventures.

Steve Cook, Buyer at The Hut

Steve’s top picks appeal to adults as much as they do to the kids, each has an undercurrent of mature humour running through meaning there’s something for everyone. Maybe reserve Die Hard for the grown-ups though…

  • National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
  • Muppets Christmas Carol
  • Elf
  • Gremlins
  • Die Hard

Joe Anderton, Buyer at The Hut

An eclectic mixture of Christmas classics and alternatives, Joe’s choices range from the family-friendly to the positively gory.

  • Home Alone
  • Bad Santa
  • Scrooged
  • Rare Exports
  • Miracle on 34th Street

Claire West, Buyer at The Hut

Claire has gone for Christmas favourites, we implore you to find someone who wouldn’t happily watch each of these choices! Save Die Hard for when the little ones have gone to bed though.

  • Die Hard
  • Home Alone
  • Elf
  • The Grinch
  • The Santa Clause

Die Hard, Home Alone and Elf all made multiple appearances in the buyer’s Top 5 picks, do you agree? If not, let us know what top Christmas films you would choose instead!
