5 favourite Christmas films on Netflix

by

December seems to have flown by so fast, I feel like I nearly missed it. This weekend is going to be all about spending time with family and catching up on some Christmas films to light that holiday spirit on fire.

Here are my recommendations

 

1 White Christmas: Oh who doesn’t love Bing Crosby singing and dancing and bringing the cheer? This best thing about this film is that it suits kids from 1 to 91.

2 Love Actually: Ok this is just one those movies that have become on of the great films of Christmas. With multiple story lines where you feel like you can relate to them all in some way. Just a nice hot coco (or mulled wine) and your are good to go, also the cast is truly incredible, Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson,  Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, the late Alan Rickman and the list goes on and on.

3 Happy Christmas: Is a coming of age dramedy of sorts, featuring Anna Kendrick as the basketcase sister that has to get her life together. Kind of refreshing seeing Kendrick in a role like that as I have somehow put her on a somewhat Disney singing – Pitch perfect – happy go lucky, pedestal.

4 Scrooged: There have been countless adaptions of the Charles Dickens tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, but this is by far my favorite. Bill Murray excels at playing the grumpy Ebenezer with his Murray magic and again this one is suitable for the whole family.

5 Die Hard 1,2,3,4, and 5: Yippee ki-yay and Merry Christmas, need I say more? (pssst I hear the Die Hard no. 6 is in the making – it will defiantly make next years Christmas movies to watch – list).

Also for those who are not so much into the whole Christmas thing, I recommend you check out “Breaking a Monster”, a heartfelt documentary about three young boys and their journey to become rock stars. They don´t care about money or even fame, they just want to play their music and be heard!!

 

“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white”

    White Christmas,  Bing Crospy
