Alternative Christmas Films

What are alternative Christmas films to watch and are they any particular reasons why they turn away from traditional Christmas narratives.

  • Now when you mean "Christmas Alternatives" do you mean as "Nightmare Before Christmas" kind of alternative since it combines both Christmas and Halloween into one movie, or "Grumpy Old Men" in which Christmas isn't necessarily important to the story but is a piece of the film's theme. – Kevin Mohammed 7 years ago
  • I think to discuss this further you'd really need to hone in on exactly what constitutes an 'alternative Xmas film'. The whole idea of dissecting the traditional is something that sounds quite interesting, but the comparison piece would, like mentioned, need to definitively set out what you mean by 'alternative' with examples and the innate differences etc. etc. – JonnyN90 7 years ago
