With Thanksgiving happening right now we're now right in the midst of Holiday movie season so we here at The Irrelevant have taken it upon ourselves to determine once and for all which is the best Holiday movie period. Each of our contributors fought over which movies were to be included in our tournament, we had a draft and we landed on 8 movies here they are in the order they were drafted in:

  1. Gremlins
  2. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
  3. A Christmas Story
  4. It's a Wonderful Life
  5. Home Alone
  6. Jingle All the Way
  7. Die Hard
  8. Miracle On 34th Street

After all the movies were selected we set a tournament bracket with seedings based on Rotten Tomatoes ranking. The contributor that drafted that movie will be presenting an argument for the movie he/she selected and at the end we'll be asking YOU the reader to vote on who won!


Round one will start this week, the semi finals on the first weeks of December with the Grand Final going down on the 22nd so that we can coronate our winner by Christmas Day!

With all that being said! Check in here Tomorrow as our Great Holiday Movie Tournament begins!
