    What's yours?
    It can be for the period around the end of the year, if you hate Christmas for some reason.

    My favorite Christmas movie is End of Days with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
    It has perfect amounts of action, comedy, drama, loss of hope, faith, redemption, nudity, horror, etc.

    Reviewers hated it back then, but they are morons so, Merry Christmas!

    I can never narrow down to one when it comes to favourite movies but my curent go to for a Christmas Eve movie is the Jim Carrey animated version of A Christmas Carol. That story is the best Christmas message movie IMO and I can watch pretty much any version of it from the Patrick Stewart version to the Bill Murray Scrooged version.

    Other great Christmas movies -

    The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe 2005
    It's a Wonderful Life
    Miracle on 34th Street
    Gremlins

    New Year Movie -

    The Secret Garden 1993
