The best movies to spend a good Christmas
The best movies to spend a good Christmas : We are in the midst of the holiday season and whether you are planning to celebrate Christmas or not, there is no denying that there is something magical in the air in December. So, we all have that feeling that makes us watch Christmas movies all together to soak up the nostalgia of the moment.
The five best movies to watch for Christmas
1.The Gremlins (1984)
Although released in June, The Gremlins is definitely a Christmas movie. You’ve probably seen it over and over, but if you haven’t, here’s the story. Randall, a salesman, is looking for a Christmas present for his son Billy and decides to bring him a Mogwai, a mystical Asian creature.
While Gizmo is cute, things get a lot less cute when one of the three rules of the film is broken and poor Gizmo multiplies to give birth to Gremlins. It’s up to Billy and his girlfriend to stop the nasty little beasts from causing chaos in a series of slapstick gags.
2. Mommy, I missed the plane (1990)
Kevin McAllister is the youngest of a large family and always feels forgotten. He’s not entirely wrong, because when the whole family goes on vacation, he’s the only one left at home because of a mistake his parents made. If at first, little Kevin has fun, he soon finds himself defending his house against two burglars by setting traps everywhere. A scene that is now iconic in cinema and parodied many times.
If the sequels are less remembered, the first two films are still Christmas classics, offering us slices of laughter every year. It is a perfect entertainment to spend a good time together and we never get tired of it.
3. Scrooge’s Christmas Carol (2009)
Jim Carrey is an actor who surely rocked the childhood of many people, from The Mask to Ace Ventura. If we associate his career and Christmas with the Grinch, there is however another Christmas movie with the comic actor. Scrooge’s Merry Christmas is a CGI animated film released in 2009 and based on “A Christmas Carol”, a short story by Charles Dickens.
In this film, Scrooge, a cheap old man and comparable to Scrooge but meaner, does not like Christmas. He is visited by Christmas spirits who try to make him understand the magic of this time of year and make him a better man.
4. Toy Run (1996)
Toy Run with Arnold Schwarzenegger has managed to establish itself as a crazy Christmas comedy, and if you saw it when you were younger, you probably also dreamed of owning a Turbo Man. In this movie, Howard, a father who is a little too busy with work, forgot to buy the toy his son wants. Problem is, the toy is the most popular of the year and it’s out of stock.
This father will therefore embark on a frantic race through the city to find a Turbo Man and save Christmas for his son. A series of crazy adventures follows, during which Howard finds himself in the home of a gang of Santa smugglers, for example. The Toy Run is a film that goes at 100 km/h and gives us what we want during this period of fun and touching moments where everyone reconciles at the end.
5. The Christmas Chronicles (2018)
We like to believe that one day someone saw Kurt Russell in Tarantino’s Dirty Eight and thought he would make a great Santa and that’s how this film series was born. The Christmas Chronicles tells the story of a brother and sister who accidentally damage Santa’s sleigh. Santa finds himself in trouble delivering presents from all over the world and the children help him repair the sleigh to save the Christmas party.
It is a simple film in its plot, but very well done with gags and good acting overall. So the film is perfect for everyone to enjoy.
It’s Christmas, take time to breathe!
At this time of the year, there’s nothing better than getting together and comforting yourself in front of a simple movie that conveys universal messages that will speak to everyone. So forget about work for a night and spend some quality time with your loved ones in front of one of the movies we have presented.
