One Choice: ’90s Christmas Movies

Inspired by the popular online game that asks people to choose one movie from a group of four, One Choice… is pretty much the same game. Readers will be given four similar movies and asked to choose one. Now here’s the catch, the other three movies will be gone forever, wiped from your brain as if they never existed. Are you ready to theoretically live in a world where you have The Empire Strikes Back but not Star Wars or Return of the Jedi? What about the 1989 Batman movie but not Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight? The choice is yours, screenager, so choose wisely.

It’s almost Christmas, which means that everyone celebrating the festive holiday should be at least 5-10 Christmas movies deep into their watchlist. There are a lot of good and/or rewatchable Christmas movies, but what would happen if you had to choose to only rewatch one (of four) for the rest of your Christmases? This week, it’s four Christmas movies from the ’90s. Good luck!

Here are the 4 Movies:

Home Alone (1990)

Cast: Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, and Daniel Stern

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

The Santa Clause (1994)

Miracle on 34th Street (1994)

So, will it be Home Alone, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Santa Clause, or Miracle on 34th Street? It’s time to choose. What will be your One Choice?
