One of the very few times I actually watch movies, particularly at home, is the holidays. And although there are hundreds of Christmas movies, the geeky the better. So here are some of the geekier holiday movies you can watch this season.
Muppet Christmas Carol
This is my favorite Christmas movie of all, mainly because it’s a classic story with the Muppet whimsy and humor. Also, I am basically Rizzo, who just wants to eat all of the food. I quote this movie year-round, so I obviously enjoy a lot.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
The greatest debate of our time: is Nightmare Before Christmas a Halloween or Christmas movie? Really, why not both. Just enjoy the movie as you please. Cause let’s be real, this is a good movie no matter when you watch it.
I know, plot twist, right? If you want your Christmas a little more spooky and 80’s filled, Gremlins is that surprise film for you. It’s based around the holidays, and specifically Christmas eve. So if you believe Die Hard is a holiday movie, watch Gremlins too.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Whether you want the classic cartoon or the more modern live action, you can’t miss the Grinch. I am partial to Jim Carrey’s antics and quotable moments of the live action. So pick your favorite and hit play.

Great picks! Muppet Christmas Carol is one of my all time favorites too, I’m pretty much Rizzo as well haha
Gremlins and the Muppets!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀
How the Grinch stole Christmas is one of my favorites. I always liked Polar Express too. It’s based off a children’s book so that makes it geeky right??
Love your list! I’ve been meaning to Gremlins but haven’t gotten around to it. Shameful being a 90’s child LOL
I also posted my fave movies for the holidays. Check them out 🙂 @ life-lust.com
I’ve seen all of these except Gremlins. While Muppet Christmas Carol isn’t bad, I just don’t think Michael Caine makes a good Scrooge (even though he’s an amazing actor)!
If I wanna watch Christmas-themed movies, I usually watch as many adaptations of A Christmas Carol that I can.
