My Christmas Movie List

I know I’m super late but since it’s the festive period, I’ve been busy naturally and I hope you can excuse me on that. I do have a list of movies I usually want to watch during Christmas however. Movies that add to the Christmas-y spirit and leave you smiling for the rest of the day. Movies that remind you what Christmas is all about and it’s not very often that you get time to watch movies with your families or spend time with them anyways.

Just like decorating your home for Christmas and putting up the Christmas tree, buying presents for your loved ones? I rate watching certain Christmas flicks as an important part of the whole celebration and feel around this time of the year. So snuggle in with a loved one, get in your blankets, get your hot chocolate ready and be ready to watch these movies which should (hopefully) leave you smiling by the end of it.

1. HOME ALONE 1 & 2

If you haven’t seen the Home Alone series then you probably haven’t enjoyed Christmas like you should have. For me? Home Alone is a movie you just can’t miss around Christmas. I’ve grown up watching it since I was about 7 or 8 and every year after that, I’d watch it around Christmas. It’s sweet, funny and it’s got a message in it as to how important your family is. I don’t think I’ll ever stop loving this movie anymore than I do right now and year after year, the fun and excitement of watching it stays the same. Really makes you value Christmas and the time around it. The holiday spirit. So if you’re looking for a good laugh and to spend some time with your family? This (these incase you want to watch both parts) is the movie to watch.

2. LOVE ACTUALLY

Love Actually is a movie I was introduced to very recently. About a fortnight back I’d say and I’m surprised as to how I hadn’t seen it before. With a star-cast that includes Alan Rickman, Liam Neeson, Kiera Knightley, Hugh Grant, Rowan Atkinson, Colin Firth and a host of other British actors (a fair few Harry Potter actors too) you just can’t miss it, can you?

Love actually just like any other rom-com tries to make you laugh, smile and make you notice how Love is all around us. An intertwined tale of 8 different couples/individuals and how they go on about things, coupled with Christmas in it. Love and Christmas combined? You just can’t go wrong there. A really sweet movie that should make you smile at some point or the other and gives a really subtle message at the same time. Must watch if you want a smile 🙂

3. JINGLE ALL THE WAY

Jingle All The Way would probably be my second most favourite movie after Home Alone during Christmas. I loved Arnold Schwarzenegger in it and it was one of his best works for me. Again, another 90’s movie that’s tailor-made for kids and teens alike and really makes you a kid again. If you are an adult? It’ll still have the same effect because it’s just that sweet. I remember being envious of the kid and his “Turbo-Man” toy and how I always wanted one. I know Terminator really made Arnold cool but for me? Jingle All The Way was the one which made me really like him.

Again a movie about bonding over Christmas and it’s got a good Christmas vibe to it that’ll make you feel happy and content at the end of it.

4. THE SANTA CLAUSE

The Santa Clause, like the name suggests is all about Santa, Christmas, The North Pole and pretty much everything you’d associate with, around Christmas. A 90’s flick with a fair hint of nostalgia attached to it, but a cute fun movie that has it’s fair share of laughter, joy, carols and excitement. I don’t think you need to be a particular age to enjoy it because it should make you a child again or atleast take you back in time.

I hope you guys enjoy my list and can view a few if not all of them and enjoy your Christmas day and break. I’d love to hear from you which movies you watched or like watching around Christmas and any I should catch up on?

Have a very Merry Christmas and be a good boy/girl because you don’t want coal, do you? 😉 Merry Christmas.

 

Home Alone!!!

No , I’m not home alone as the title might suggest? I’m talking about the MOVIE “Home Alone” and how It’s on tv right now. Probably watching it for the 4654766th time now. Just made me realise how certain movies and moments can stick in your memory and mind and just last the distance. Certain movies where you KNOW what’s going to happen , where you mouth the dialogues as they happen , remember it word to word , yet you just keep on watching them. Be it a memory growing up or be it a movie you watched with someone and everytime you watch it again? you go back to that moment and time.

   Yepp , you remember this little devil , don’t you?

Home alone is one movie that I grew up watching? and it’s simple , yet hilarious and you can relate in a way. Plus the kid is adorable. I bet you guys can relate as well , in some way and movies that you grow up watching? some will stick in your mind and stay there. So maybe 5 years down the line , when you randomly see it come on T.V? your eyes light up. Same is the case here. Nostalgia is pretty amazing in a way and how you can relive those moments 😀 I remember watching it every Christmas , snuggled up in bed in a blanket , near my birthday (Yeah , it’s in December) and it’d be the best time of the year. Aaah , memories can be fun.

  Dunston Checks in

Are you Game?

Other movies that I can recall would be Jumanji (the epicly epic board game which every kid wanted back then) , Dunston Checks in (This cute kid and a chimp) or Baby’s Day Out (This adorable baby’s journey though town). Just classic movies straight off my head and ofcourse , the other day , I came across Spy Kids. Another one of those series you just LOVED as a kid. I bet you have your own set of old movies you still love watching over and over again? Let me know and thanks for reading 😀
