While it’s currently snowing outside, I’m thinking about crawling on my sofa with tea in one hand and gingerbread in the other and how nice it would be to watch a typical Christmas movie. They say you can measure a man’s true love of how many times he was willing to watch Frozen with you. Now we are at 4, can we make it to 5 this year?
Love Actually: the ultimate Christmas movie I watch with my family every year. It’s a romantic comedy that features Hollywood icons like Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley and Colin Firth.
Frozen: some may say this story was written among a cheesy song, well I don’t care, because it’s beautiful! Fun characters like Olaf, amazing CGI and Elsa is one of my favourite Disney princesses of all time.
Little Women: inspired by the book of Louisa May Alcott, this movie presents the life of a family with 4 sisters. Though not every section of the movie takes place in winter, it’s a lovely family film.
A Christmas Carol: Charles Dickens’ novel inspired a lot of adaptations, but my favourite one is the animated from 2009. Jim Carrey starring as Scrooge.
Just Friends: Ryan Reynolds comes home for Christmas… need I say more?
The Polar Express: an animated movie in which Tom Hanks plays 5 characters at the same time!
A Bad Moms Christmas: the second movie of the very popular Bad moms. It’s full of funny and crazy moments. A great choice to watch with friends.
Home alone: TV channels are screening it every single year, it became part of Christmas.
The Nightmare before Christmas: classic Tim Burton writing and spectacle.
Die Hard: because I thought about gentlemen too! The first Die Hard movie from 1988 actually takes place at a Christmas party so if you are full of comedies, here is some action for you!
Serendipity: John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale searching for each other after the night they first met and fell in love.
Batman Returns: because why not? Directed by Tim Burton, Batman has to save Gotham during Christmas. Legendary casting: Michael Keaton as Batman, Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman and Danny DeVito as the Penguin.
