The Best Fantasy and Sci Fi Holiday Flicks!


2. Scrooged

There are about a billion takes on a Christmas Carol, but there's only one Scrooged. Bill Murray is at his best playing a smarmy television executive who, like Ebenezer Scrooge, has lost all sight of his humanity. It's a modern update, though, so in this take, the ghost of Christmas past is a wise-cracking cabdriver, and there are lots of other similar twists. This is a must for Bill Murray fanatics.
