» Fargo
A reality-based crime drama set in Minnesota in 1987. Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) is a car salesman in Minneapolis who has gotten himself into debt and is so desperate for money that he hires two thugs (Steve Buscemi), (Peter Stormare) to kidnap his own wife. Jerry will collect the ransom from her wealthy father (Harve Presnell), paying the thugs a small portion and keeping the rest to satisfy his debts. The scheme collapses when the thugs shoot a state trooper. A winner of our Viewer's Choice Poll.(1996)

» National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
It's Christmas time - Clark (Chevy Chase) decided to invite all the family to have "the most fun-filled old-fashioned family Christmas" which nobody shall ever forget. But when the first relatives arrive, Clark flees to the roof to rig the lighting. The one thing the loving father wants to surprise the whole family with is the installation of a pool, which he already ordered. Unfortunately, the bonus check Clark expects at any minute is overdue - and tempers rise. To aggravate the situation further there's the arrival of uninvited cousin Eddie (Randy Quaid) with his family in their mobile home, some dangerous sledding with a new lubricant from Clark's company, and the constantly shifting relationship with the very hip and clean neighbors. Cousin Eddie goes rogue and chooses to top it all off with a special creation of his very own. "Oh, Eddie... If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn't be more surprised than I am now." (1989)

» Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale
A young boy named Pietari (Onni Tommila) and his friend Juuso (Ilmari Järvenpää) think a secret mountain drilling project near their home in northern Finland has uncovered the tomb of Santa Claus. However, this a monstrous, evil Santa, much unlike the cheery St. Nick of legend. When Pietari's father (Jorma Tommila) captures a feral old man (Peeter Jakobi) in his wolf trap, the man may hold the key to why reindeer are being slaughtered and children are disappearing. (2010)

» Elf
Buddy (Will Ferrel) was a baby in an orphanage who stowed away in Santa's sack and ended up at the North Pole. Later, as an adult human who happened to be raised by elves, Santa allows him to go to New York City to find his birth father, Walter Hobbs. Hobbs, on Santa's naughty list for being a heartless jerk, had no idea that Buddy was even born. Buddy, meanwhile, experiences the delights of New York City (and human culture) as only an elf can. When Walter's relationship with Buddy interferes with his job, he is forced to reevaluate his priorities. (2003)
