It’s probably a difficult genre to pull off, Christmas means a lot of different things to different people. I’d imagine that to make a new Christmas movie set in modern times must be harder still with all the consumerism and other stresses and pressures.
Polar Express was written in 1985 by Chris Van Allsburg, it might make a nice present for some young man or lady? A simple plot full of magic, adventure and visuals and well executed by director Robert Zemeckis with Tom Hanks playing the train conductor. Not a perfect film but it does manage to capture some of the spirit of Christmas….
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)

The redemption of RDJ, and a career best from Val Kilmer…
In Bruges (2008)
Rosette of Sirius writes:
It only mentions Christmas a few times but it capture the darkness melancholy that so many people experience at this time of the year. But there’s also the morality behind the story that like all great Christmas stories proves nobody is beyond saving. Redemption for them all? No. But hope… just a little.
