Everybody loves Christmas movies. They are the perfect thing to watch during this time of year. But what is the best Christmas movie of all time? There are so many to choose from! Here’s a list of the top 10.
1. Die Hard
The debate about whether or not Die Hard is actually considered a Christmas film has been going on for years. It will be hard to find someone who doesn’t know what movie you’re talking about when your family watches it together this year, so go ahead and check out how the action scenes in Bruce Willis’ classic actioner influenced our annual holiday tradition!
2. Home Alone
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love this movie. I’m sure you’ve watched it a hundred times, too – which means that we’re in the same boat and ready to watch these hilarious scenes over again!
The perfect holiday tale for anyone who needs a good laugh, this fish out of water story stars Will Ferrell. Buddy the Elf’s adventures with his New York family are sure to delight your whole household and you’ll be quoting some lines from it well past Christmas Day! Buddy reminded us what true optimism feels like when he said “everybody deserves happiness” even if they’re not aware themselves how they can get there or know why others might want them too.
4. Love Actually
Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned Christmas movie with predictable plotlines and big-name stars? This time around, there’s no need for any of your traditional tunes because we have “Love Actually”! With its perfect mix between humor, heartache, hope—you’ll be able to find it all in one sitting.
The voice should sound witty but also lighthearted enough so that anyone can enjoy them regardless of whether they know what the story is about or not.
5. Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Jim Carrey takes the form of a grump who, much to his family’s delight is not really all that grouchy. He does this by taking on Dr. Seuss’ classic story and making it into an adaption perfect for any age group! You’ll be laughing so hard you can’t stop quoting lines from your favorite Christmas movie for years after watching it.
6. Love Hard
Love Hard is a modern Christmas movie that millennials can relate to. The cast especially Jimmy O. Yang’s performance is great and with unexpected acting, I will never imagine he could do, so if you want to see some good holiday cheer this show might be perfect!
7. Arthur Christmas
This 2011 movie might be a recent addition to the Christmas pantheon, but that doesn’t stop it from feeling like an all-time classic. With a heartwarming story and interesting themes about family and selflessness making up its core values (not forgetting that clever animation), there’s no way you won’t love this festive flick for every member of your household!
8. The Man Who Invented Christmas
This behind-the-scenes look at how Charles Dickens came up with the holiday classic “A Christmas Carol” is a treat for all ages, putting a sweetly revisionist spin on the timeless Christmas tale.
9. Just Friends
You know you’re in for a treat when the protagonist is played by Ryan Reynolds. This goofy Christmas story where he portrays as a high schooler revisiting his first love. While its adult humor may not be for the whole family, this original film will leave you laughing from start to finish!
10. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
The Harry Potter films are not typically thought of as Christmas movies, but the holiday scenes in these movies often hold a special place among fans. The most powerful moment from any adaptation is when we see our favorite characters realize they’ve received something on their first day at Hogwarts-and it doesn’t get much more Christmassy than that! If you need better material to watch while waiting for Christmas day, I strongly recommend checking to watch the whole franchise.
That’s my list how about you? Please leave me a comment below and I will gladly much appreciate it. May all your Christmases be merry, brightened by a good cheer in this new year coming up soon enough.
