I see your Die Hard, I see your Gremlins, but I’m going to raise you Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. The pride of 1992, this film is the ultimate Christmas movie. The proof is in the pudding, as they say.
Not only is Gotham City decked out in holiday garb, but there’s a tree-lighting, presents exchanged, and even ‘Merry Christmas’ dialogue. This isn’t your run of the mill, “Christmas is happening in the background” kind of film. Alfred, Bruce Wayne’s faithful family butler has a full scene where he’s decorating a Christmas tree for crying out loud. Add it to your rotation this holiday season if it’s not already there.
