Any Hallmark Christmas movie– They’re all the same cheesy storyline about falling in love during Christmas time. I don’t know anyone who would actually flip to the Hallmark Channel and be like: “Oh Boy! A Hallmark Christmas movie! Let me go grab my popcorn!”My mom, however, does watch them for some nice background noise while she is doing chores around the house.
Polar Express- I’ve always thought this movie was a bit overhyped. The storyline is pretty boring. It even has a melancholy feeling, and the pacing is too slow. Also the way the movie is animated is weird. If you’re going to try and tell me that the characters aren’t creepy looking, I will not listen because you’d simply be wrong. Overall bad movie, but it does get a few brownie points for a decent soundtrack.
The Nightmare Before Christmas- It’s more of a Halloween movie, otherwise it’s pretty good. If you do think it’s more of a Christmas movie, that’s a little odd.
Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch (2018)- Compared to the other two versions of the Grinch (The Live Action one and the one made in 1966), this one is just plain disappointing. Cindy Lou Who was also extra annoying in this version as well, maybe that’s just me though. And no offense to Tyler, The Creator but his version of You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch wasn’t so spectacular.
The Santa Clause 2 & The Santa Clause 3/All of the Home Alone movies besides the first one- I grouped these two movies together because the reasoning for them being on the list is the same. They’re nowhere near as good as the first movie and the producers probably should’ve just stopped after the first one.
