This was a hard list to pull together despite the sheer volume of appallingly bad Christmas movies that are on the screens during this time of the year and so l reduced it down to 20 over 35 …. l find it interesting what some people dislike with regards Christmas film … l mean there are many reasons people do dislike them … what would your reason be?
l guess maybe, that people either don’t watch the television as they once did , or only watch repeats of the same films every year or maybe people don’t watch Christmas films anymore full stop, maybe it’s a tradition dying out with the arrival of Netflix and Amazon Prime and so on … or maybe people are too drunk to notice what is good or bad anymore … anyway enough of my banter, without further ado, here’s 20 of the worst in our readers eyes and mine too!
