I agree- my favorites are the classics. I was wondering the same thing about childhood associations.

I don't like the Hallmark type movies (I don't like dramas in general, so that might explain it) and Nightmare Before Christmas is a Hallowe'en movie to me. I pretty much stay away from modern Christmas movies, if I'm really looking to get in the mood (though The Polar Express wasn't bad).
