Favorite Christmas movie: ‘A Christmas Story’ or ‘Home Alone’?
Below is the synopsis of "A Christmas Story," per IMDb.
In the 1940s, a young boy named Ralphie attempts to convince his parents, his teacher, and Santa that a Red Ryder B.B. gun really is the perfect Christmas gift.
"A Christmas Story" still resonates to this day. The classic holiday comedy teaches kids about the importance of Christmas and the holiday spirit. It's about more than just presents, but at the same time, all of us were kids once.
Everyone knows what it's like to long for that special toy during the holiday and the anxiety behind whether or not you will receive that gift. That's a feeling kids will always have during the holidays. So, "A Christmas Story" will always be relevant. The National Film registry agrees, as "A Christmas Story" was inducted for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
Kevin McCallister is one of the most iconic movie roles ever. Macaulay Culkin became a household name after starring in the film; the young actor received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor—Motion Picture Musical or Comedy in 1991. "Home Alone" is also a successful franchise, spawning four sequels.
"Home Alone" is the quintessential Christmas movie for millennials, and it just so happens to be the most successful.
