Get cosy with a mug of your favourite warm drink (Mulled Wine, Egg nog, Hot Chocolate or a Chai Latte are all great choices) and settle down in front of Netflix to watch the best festive films they have to offer this year. Here are my Top 4.
#1 A Very Murray Christmas
Bill Murray is simply charming in this Netflix Original. Its an Old fashioned variety show set up, with plenty of singing and guest stars. Amy Poehler is one of the main reasons I decided to watch A Very Murray Christmas. I’m a huge fan of her work and she is as funny as ever in this. Miley Cyrus & George Clooneys guest appearances are by far the best of the variety show. Its also worth mentioning that Chris Rocks singing scene is fantastic and a must-see for sure! It’s hilarious and entertaining. Now if I could only just buy it as a single on iTunes, Christmas would be complete.
#2 Home Alone
Its not really Christmas until you’ve watched Home Alone at least once. This christmas netflix has given us the greatest gift of all; Home Alone 1 & 2. Its the story of a little boy (Kevin) who “accidentally” gets left alone at home during the christmas holidays. The adventure/action really kicks off when two crooks decide to burgle the house but are no match for Kevin and his crafty traps he makes in order to protect the family home. Fun fact “The baddies” actually used to scare me when I was younger. Looking back on it now it was slapstick comedy at its finest.
#3 Bojack Horseman Christmas Special
This Bojack Horseman Christmas special is awesome. If you’re a fan of the series then you’ll love this. In this special, Bojack (Will Arnett) and his Housemate Todd (Aaron Paul) watch a holiday episode of Horsin’ around (The sitcom that made BoJack TV famous). I also can’t help but love the way that Horsin’ around mimics the style of a 1980’s sitcom. Its full of puns, cliches and paradoxes. There are some great one- liners in this episode too.
#4 A Christmas Carol
Originally a novella by Charles Dickens; A Christmas carol tell the story of Ebenezer Scrooge a miserable cold hearted Grinch-like character who despises christmas and all the joy it brings. Without giving away any major spoilers he completely does a 360 by the end and is reformed into a kind hearted man. This re-adaptaion of the 1984 film is spectacular. You have to push past the dramatic scores and sometimes gruesome scenes to get to the end where the true message and moral of the story leaves a lasting impression.
