In some cases, I still need to watch more of these directors' work to get an idea of their style. So the list might drastically change.
Favourite movie in description.
I'm never satisfied with this list but I will say that my top 3 have been 22 Short Films, 4 Ft. 2, and Lisa's Wedding for a very long time and will probably never change.
Updated as I watch more movies.
My ratings don't necessarily reflect how much I enjoyed the movie. If something is rated an 8 and is higher than something that was rated a 9, it is probably because I just enjoyed watching that 8 more than the 9. The 9 is still technically a better movie.
I tried sticking to movies that are specifically about Christmas. There are plenty of other lists with movies like Die Hard on them which are fine but I'd rather stick to Christmas themed movies here.
To explain my choices, I took into consideration what a fan of the books would want to see in a Harry Potter movie and what somebody who hadn't read any of the books would want. While Azkaban was a drastic change in the series of movies and arguably the black sheep, it satisfies both fans of the book and fans of the movie series. The same could be said for HBP. These are the two best Harry Potter movies.
As of creating this list, I have not seen two of Pixar's films. (Cars 2 and Monsters University.)
