This week, Dave, Neil, and Joanna kick off the Holiday Trial Royale! In this multi-week series, they’ll be debating the best holiday movies of all time!

They start by playing some holiday trivia games (4:36). Then, they discuss pretrial dismissals and awards (28:09). After that, they talk about the movies going up against each other in the first week and discuss which ones they’re voting for (45:30).

Now it’s up to you to decide! What is the best holiday movie? You can vote for the winner at ⁠⁠, on The Ringer’s X feed, and in the Spotify app, where you’ll find Trial by Content. The winner will be announced on the next episode!

You can send your picks for the next topic and a few sentences to support your pick to ⁠⁠. You can also submit suggestions for future Trial by Content topics. Is there a great pop culture debate that you’d like us to settle? Send it on over!
