Don’t feel very merry yet? You might need to watch one of
Two women who’ve never met decide to swap houses for the
holidays. Iris lives in a quaint little cottage in Britain and Amanda lives in
a mansion in America. The two decide to take a break from their own (love)
lives, but end up finding it where they least expect it. It’s a great film to
watch with your S.O or your girlfriends if you want something fun to watch
that’ll make you giggle.
Home Alone 1 and 2
Bring on the nostalgia! Little Kevin McCallister gets left
behind when his family goes on holiday and he’s having a great time until
burglars target his home and he needs to think of clever ways to protect it.
In the sequel, Kevin accidentally goes to New York instead
of following his family on their flight to Florida. He gets to roam the Big
Apple and have some fun, but then runs into the same crooks who tried to rob
his home in the first movie. Now he has to get rid of them again in a city
where he doesn’t have home field advantage.
Stop rolling your eyes. This is actually a really great
Christmas movie, even if it’s been on TV so many times you could scream.
Because Christmas is a time for love, right? And what better way to spend it
than to watch a hilarious comedy all about love?
Watch Will Ferrell as the loveable, but somewhat misguided
elf, Buddy, who finds out he’s actually human and was transported to the North
pole accidentally as a toddler. He then tries to track down his real father
(who turns out to be a grumpy businessman) in New York. It’s seriously funny and utterly quotable.
The Nightmare Before
Is this a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie? The answer
is both. Tim Burton’s most famous work shows what happens when Jack Skellington
tries to take over from Father Christmas.
John McClane is on his way to visit his wife and daughters
on Christmas Eve. He meets up with his estranged wife at her work holiday
party, but the festivities are interrupted by a group of terrorists (which
includes Alan Rickman in one of his greatest roles) who take over the building
and John realises that it’s up to him to save all the hostages. If you love
Christmas, but want something other than the smushy stuff, definitely watch
While You Were
Sandy B plays sweet and innocent so well, doesn’t she? In
this flick she’s a lonely transit worker (hey, we didn’t say it was believable)
who stops her crush from being hit by a train and then, at the hospital, his
family confuses a misplaced comment from her to mean that she’s his fiancée and
she doesn’t correct them. Totes awks, right? But wait, there’s more. She then
starts to fall for his brother! Oh, and it all takes place around Christmastime
when family seems most important.
If you love Christmas and dark comedies, then this is
perfect for you. Will and Marcus run a con every year posing as a mall Santa
and his elf to rip off shopping malls, but this year things are a bit
different. Willie is a depressed alcoholic and his behaviour draws the
attention of the security guard (played by the late, great Bernie Mac), then he
makes friends with a small boy and Willie begins to think there might still be
some hope for him.For
