Sweet 16 set for GOAT Christmas Movie Bracket
After an exciting first round of the Greatest Christmas Movie Bracket, the action has not disappointed.
While most of round one's contests were decided in a landslide, there were a pair of match-ups that resulted in a photo finish over the last week. On Friday, #2 Die Hard narrowly beat #7 Love Actually 65-60. The "Is Die Hard a Christmas movie?" debate is alive and well; I did not expect that match-up to be as close as it was. Die Hard will have its work cut out for itself in the Sweet 16 vs. The Santa Clause.
Earlier in the week, #3 White Christmas fell to #6 Deck the Halls, 48-42. The Christmas comedy starring Matthew Broderick and Danny DeVito was the only 6 seed (or lower) to advance to the Sweet 16.

#4 Home Alone 2: Lost in New York 51, #5 How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) 40
