    Favorite Seasonal Movies

    Lately I've found myself purchasing what I call seasonal movies, because I
    know I'll watch them at least once a year until I die. Here's a few I can think of
    that are a must watch, depending on the season:

    Summer:
    Born of the Fourth of July
    The Patriot
    Platoon
    Saving Private Ryan

    Fall:
    Halloween
    Scream
    Nightmare Before Christmas
    Sleepy Hollow
    The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad

    Winter/Thanksgiving time:
    Home Alone 1 and 2
    Christmas Vacation
    Christmas Story
    Scrooged
    Mickey's Christmas Carol

    Spring:
    Major League
    A League of Their Own

    I just purchased "The Year Without a Santa Claus." A claymation classic. How could you not love the antics of Heat and Freeze Miser. My daughter and I are gonna watch that sucker this holiday season.

    Whenever I think of John Clayton,I picture this guy:





    The only "seasonal" movie that I just have to watch would be A Christmas Story."You'll shoot your eye out,kid."

    Christmas Vacation= Goes without saying IMO.

    Bad Santa w/Billy Bob Thornthon is excellent. It's been on Comedy Central in the past and I have never seen so much editing for TV as I have for this movie.

    Wildcats and Rudy are must watch movies at the beginning of football season.
    Necessary Roughness is a good one too.

    Necessary Roughness sucks compared to Major League, though. They obviously tried to capitalize on how good Major League was by doing a football version, but is it ever a good thing to include Sinbad in your cast?

    4.121 DE Henry Anderson, 6'6" 294 lbs., Stanford
    5.160 WR Titus Davis, 6'1" 196 lbs., Central Michigan
    6.199 OLB Kyle Emanuel, 6'3" 255 lbs., North Dakota State
