Grab The Popcorn! 16 Of The Best Christmas Movies

Ya filthy animals!


By Olivia Ashworth | 16th December 2021

Deck the halls, jingle those bells, and grab some popcorn, because if there’s anything we love more than Christmas, it’s a good ol’ Christmas movie!

Whether you’re already a festive flick fanatic or looking to spread that laughter and cheer (for all to hear) this season, we’ve got a film that even Scrooge and the Grinche will love.

Miracle on 34th Street

Is the Cole’s Santa the real deal? Is it all an elaborate hoax? That’s totally up to you but we’re more than happy to suspend belief because Richard Attenborough is the most majestic Santa we’ve ever seen.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

The Jim Carrey version… obviously!

Last Christmas

A newcomer to the festive flick list but a goodie nonetheless! Starring Hollywood faves Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, and Emma Thompson, what’s not to love. Ps, no spoilers but you may want to pack tissues…

Love Actually

If watching Hugh Jackman dance around to ‘Jump (For My Love)’ doesn’t make you feel festive, we don’t know what will.

The Holiday

What’s more festive than a good ol’ fashioned love story? Well, how about two of ’em? A classic holiday switch and swap, starring Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz, you know it’s gonna be a goodie!

Elf

Whether it’s the spaghetti and maple syrup combo, mail room scene, or iconic Buddy and Jovie date, it wouldn’t be a Christmas movie list without Elf!

Home Alone

If Macaulay Culkin walking the Gucci catwalk taught us anything this year, it’s that nothing can ever truly beat Kevin McCallister. Ya filthy animal!

Polar Express

You love it or you hate it. Wherever you sit on the fence, you can’t deny it’s an absolute classic.

The Santa Clause

Tim Allen puts on the red hat. That’s it. 

Deck the Halls

If Christmas lights are your favourite festive activity, strap yourself in for the ultimate show. Nothing like a bit of neighbour rivalry to spread that holiday cheer.

Let It Snow

A classic combo of high school students, love, and friendship, with overlapping plot lines, this 2019 film is basically a modern Love Actually.

Holidate

Blowing up last year for its infamous cringe, we’ve got to admit there’s something about this flick that still makes it list-worthy.

Nativity!

A personal fave, if you’re on the hunt for side-splitting laughs and a sing-along, this British festive flick is for you.

Arthur Christmas

Santa’s gawky son embarks on the ultimate mission to deliver a misplaced pressie. A fave amongst the little ones, if you’re looking for a family friendly flick this season, press play.

A Christmas Carol

Based on the classic Shakespeare tale, follow along as Ebenezer Scrooge experiences the ultimate all-nighter intervention.

Little Women

While some may argue Little Women may not fit the criteria of a Christmas film, we’d politely disagree. From the dazzling smile of Timothée Chalamet to Jo March’s fiery monologues (oh and also that one scene set at Christmas), it’s overflowing with festive cheer.
