    The Official Porch Fly Holiday Movie List

    It's the "Most Wonderful Time Of The Year"! Well, at least according to Andy Williams on every radio station imaginable. The holidays have a different meaning for everyone. For some it's about giving, for others it's about receiving. And for others, it's about Chinese food and a movie. No matter who you are or what you're doing over the holidays, there is always time to get comfortable with friends and family, grab a hot (bourbon) drink and watch a Christmas classic. Here's our 5 favorite holiday flicks to get you through the season. Enjoy!

    5. DIE HARD (1988)

    It's Christmas time in L.A., and there's an employee party in progress on the 30th floor of the Nakatomi Corporation building. The revelry comes to a violent end when the partygoers are taken hostage by a group of terrorists headed by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), who plan to steal the 600 million dollars locked in Nakatomi's high-tech safe. In truth, Gruber and his henchmen are only pretending to be politically motivated to throw the authorities off track; also in truth, Gruber has no intention of allowing anyone to get out of the building alive. Meanwhile, New York cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) has come to L.A. to visit his estranged wife, Holly (Bonnie Bedelia), who happens to be one of the hostages. Disregarding the orders of the authorities surrounding the building, McClane, who fears nothing (except heights), takes on the villains, armed with one handgun and plenty of chutzpah.


     



    Rating: PG (adult situations/language, violence)
    Genre: Horror, Science Fiction & Fantasy, Comedy
    Directed By:
    Written By: Chris Columbus
    In Theaters:
    On DVD: Jun 22, 1999
    Runtime:

     

    Our Consensus: This movie is absolutely ridiculous. But let's be clear, if you didn't open up your biggest gift each year hoping just a little bit that it was a Mogwai, then we straight up don't trust you.

     

    3. HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS (1995)

    Claudia Larson (Holly Hunter) usually approaches family reunions with a certain trepidation, but as she prepares to fly from her home in Chicago to her parent's place in Baltimore for Thanksgiving, she is more apprehensive than usual. Claudia has just lost her job, she's not feeling at all well, and her teenage daughter, Kitt (Claire Danes), who is staying behind, informs Claudia on the way to the airport that she plans to use the weekend to lose her virginity with her boyfriend.


    Rating: PG-13
    Genre: Drama, Kids & Family, Comedy
    Directed By:
    Written By: W.D. Richter
    In Theaters:
    On DVD: Nov 9, 2004
    Runtime:

     

    Our Consensus: If you're a living person with a family, this hits home. Has there ever been a more accurate portrayal of the stress and frustration of a family holiday? From the second that Claudia arrives home, the movie plays out like every son or daughters worst holiday nightmare. Most importantly...the infamous turkey scene. Everyone has wanted this to happen to at least one relative at one point or another. A realistic, instant classic.

     

    2. HOME ALONE (1990)

    Home Alone is the highly successful and beloved family comedy about a young boy named Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) who is accidentally left behind when his family takes off for a vacation in France over the holiday season. Once he realizes they've left him home alone, he learns to fend for himself and, eventually has to protect his house against two bumbling burglars (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) who are planning to rob every house in Kevin's suburban Chicago neighborhood.


    Rating: PG
    Genre: Comedy, Kids & Family
    Directed By:
    Written By: John Hughes
    In Theaters:
    On DVD: Oct 5, 1999
    Runtime:

     

    Our Consensus: This movie is every kids dream. Who hasn't dreamed of ditching (or being ditched by) your family for a weekend of a little "King of The Castle". Of course, a PG Pesci makes this movie even more amazing, but it's a pre-heroin Macauly Caulkin's performance that makes this a bonafide childhood favorite. Now keep reading, ya dirty rascal!

     

    1. RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER (1964)

    This stop-motion animagic version of the classic Christmas tale adds a bit of a twist when Rudolph encounters an abominable snowman. This was made for TV and features Burl Ives as the narrator.

    WE LOVE THIS MOVIE SO MUCH, WE'VE PROVIDED THE FULL LENGTH FILM BELOW


    Rating: Unrated
    Genre: Television, Animation, Kids & Family, Classics
    Directed By: , ,, , , ,, , , , , ,
    Written By: Romeo Muller
    In Theaters:
    On DVD: Oct 17, 2000
    Runtime:

     

    Our Consensus: Yeah, we're serious. We love everything about this from the insane re-imagination of the plot line to the grainy and awkward stop-motion animation. We can't really explain how important this movie was to us growing up. Burl Ives was like our jolly, round, cigar smoking grandfather. This classic immediately brings you back to a simpler time in your life. You might even want to slip on an adult onesie for this one..it just feels right.
