5 favourite Christmas films on Netflix

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).    …


What is on Netflix in December you ask!?!

What is on Netflix in December you ask!?!

I am still getting over my binge watching of Gilmore Girls this weekend and getting back to reality.  It can be a little difficult to rip yourself away from the town of “pleasantville” where the biggest problem the Gilmore Girls face is if they are out of coffee (I can relate to that). I wanted to go over some of the shows and films coming to Netflix in December that I am excited about: Blue Jay (Film) : I watched this film a few months back and I absolutely loved it. I can admit that I have a small crush on Mark Duplass ever since I saw him in Your Sisters Sister ( some might know him from The League ). Trollhunters (TV): “A teenage boy discovers a war being waged between two groups of trolls underneath his hometown and sets off on an adventure after finding a mystic amulet.” Why not? The Eighties (TV) : Its a news series covering the top news and events from the 80´s and since I was born in the 80´s I am kindof curious. Versailles (TV): All about Louis XIV and how he went about building the most extraordinary castle in the world. Barry (Film): This film follows a young Barack Obama as he moves to New York City to attend Columbia University and where it all started. (….please dont leave us… ) This is just a small excerpt of what to come to NF in December and I will post a Christmas themed list here soon!
