It's probably sacrilegious to live in the region and not be a fan of "A Christmas Story." My reaction to the film is "it's OK."
If you've grown tired of leg lamps, here are a few Christmas-themed films I recommend. TBS may not run them during a 24-hour cycle, but I watch them every year.
Happy Christmas (2014) - The newest film on the list stars Anna Kendrick in a mostly-improvised indie dramedy filmed in Chicago's Lincoln Square neighborhood.
The Fitzgerald Family Christmas (2013) - Made by Edward Burns ("The Brothers McMullen") whom some refer to as the indie Woody Allen. A fine dramedy about an Irish-American family getting together for Christmas.
Batman Returns (1992) - Back when Micheal Keaton was the caped crusader battling The Penguin and Catwoman during Christmastime in a snow-filled Gotham City. At one point the villanious Red Triangle Circus Gang bursts out of a giant Christmas-wrapped box during the city's tree-lighting ceremony.
Less Than Zero (1987) - Maybe the most downer film in the bunch about rich college students in L.A. during the holidays. Robert Downey Jr. gives a stand-out performance behind a great soundtrack featuring "Christmas in Hollis" by Run DMC and The Bangles cover of Simon and Garfunkel's "Hazy Shade of Winter."
Prancer (1989) - Filmed in Laporte and Three Oaks, Michigan, the story of Santa's stranded reindeer and the Christmas-loving little girl that cares for him. Abe Vigoda is great as a veterinarian.
A Midnight Clear (1992) World War II drama set in the Ardennes forest revolving around an American and German platoon sharing a Christmas celebration. Stars Ethan Hawke, Gary Sinise and Peter Berg, who went on to create "Friday Night Lights."
Love Actually (2003) - My personal favorite. Christmas is definitely all around in this British classic.
Alive (1993) - True story about the rugby team plane crash in the Andes Mountains. Maybe not necessarily a Christmas film but it has lots and lots of snow and a great version of "Ave Maria" by Aaron Neville at the end.
Smilla's Sense of Snow (1997) - Another one that's not really a Christmas film but again, a good winter movie because of all the snow. I mean, the lead character (Julia Ormond) has a sense of it. Sort of has one of those, "oh, wow, that's interesting" kind of endings.
