    "I don't care if you think The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie — I detest it."

    We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to share their unpopular opinions about popular Christmas movies. Here are the surprising results:

    1. "The live-action Grinch with Jim Carrey is disturbing. Between the Whos' creepy faces and the Grinch's backstory, it just makes me uncomfortable."

    2. "Elf is...not really funny. Will Ferrell just screams all the time. Saw it once, don't want to see it again."

    3. "Elf is trash...Zooey Deschanel is much better than playing a role in that movie."

    4. "The Muppet Christmas Carol is by far my favorite version of the movie. Michael Caine is an awesome Scrooge, and the songs are total bops."

    5. "Home Alone is a terrible film. Emotionally abused, neglected, and ostracized by his family, a literal child thinks up increasingly sadistic ways to torture two burglars instead of, y’know, calling the police."

    Kevin McCallister in "Home Alone" holds his face in shock as he looks in a mirror

    6. "Love Actually is awful. The jokes fell flat, and there were too many plotlines to keep up with. And some of the characters deserved so much better."

    7. "I don’t get It’s a Wonderful Life and the hype of it being one of the greatest movies ever. I just don’t think it’s that great a film.
