My favourite Christmas movies

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.
