For a great Christmas movie, try The Lion in Winter. Probably best after the extended family has gone home. Katherine Hepburn and Peter O'Toole — all you might need. But the rest of the cast is so good, too. Just the exuberance and the machinations. The Great Man theory of history, packed tight in an old castle. If it's been a long time since you've seen it, it's worth watching again.

Dean Davis agrees:

I second this. The supporting cast includes Tim Dalton and Anthony Hopkins, too. All in all a fine film with some mature themes.

    One of the best movies of all time. A true demonstration of the tests of human character, individualism, treachery, and goodness.

    If my surname weren't Watson, I would choose the name Plantagenet as that is the coolest name in history.
