Scrooged

The timeless classic, A Christmas Carol has been redone so many times, it should be looking like a charred corpse by now, but somehow, it perseveres. In Scrooged, it is better than well done, it comes back to life! Aided by the eternal brilliance of Bill Murray, the tale shines on screen, reminding people around the world that redemption is always possible. Rumour has it that Murray ad-libbed a LOT of his lines – is there anything this man can’t do?

Love Actually

It’s not a Christmas movie countdown without Love Actually. The feel-good festive film is arguably the greatest ensemble-cast rom com of all time, and it’s easy to see why. It’s an ode to every kind of love there is: Andrew Lincoln (pre-Rick Grimes)’s unrequited desire for Kiera Knightly, Liam Neeson (love me) and his adorable father-step son relationship, Hugh Grant’s political workplace romance, Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman’s heartbreak, and just the desire to be loved on Christmas — there is simply nothing that this movie cannot do. Love Actually is essential Christmas viewing. Sorry, we don’t make the rules.

Elf

No list is even possibly close to being complete without Elf, the charming story of a human born amongst elves. Buddy works in the North Pole with all the other elves, happily making toys, eating sugar and hanging with Papa Elf. All this is disturbed one day when Papa Elf tells Buddy the truth: he is not an elf at all, but a human and what is worse, his real dad IS ON THE NAUGHTY LIST. Buddy is convinced he can save his grumpy dad and so goes on a mission to find his real family and show them the spirit of Christmas. Go watch it you cotton headed ninny muggins!

Happy Christmas

Here’s a lil indie Christmas for ya – an Anna Kendrick Christmas movie! Long before she was playing Santa’s daughter, Kendrick was playing a directionless young twenty-something, who had just broken up with her boyfriend and moved into her brother’s house. Her party lifestyle doesn’t quite mesh with her brother and his wife’s life as new parents but, bit by bit, they work it out. This one is a surprisingly low-key winner, stacked with genuine Christmas and family, love.

8-Bit Christmas

And now for something for the kids in the back – the ones with the fanny packs, the jean jackets and the neon leg warmers – get ready for 8-Bit Christmas! Jake Doyle is making the trip with his daughter Annie to visit the house where he grew up, in time for Christmas. As they wait for the rest of the family to show up, Annie begins to complain about not getting her dream gift for Christmas – a phone. To put things in perspective for her (a la A Christmas Carol of course) Jake begins to tell her the epic saga of his year of 1987, where he battled the entire town for the opportunity to get his hands on the local rich kid’s golden egg – a Nintendo. Whether you were a kid then or have a kid now, 8-Bit Christmas has a little something for everyone.

Arthur Christmas

If you’re looking for something for the kids to enjoy (but also something surprisingly clever and emotional that you can happily sit through), then look no further than Arthur Christmas. The story follows Arthur Christmas (voiced by James McAvoy), the dorky but kind-hearted son of Father Christmas (Hugh Laurie) who discovers that his dad’s new high-tech shipping method has missed the delivery of one girl’s Christmas present. Determined to save her Christmas, he embarks on a mission — accompanied by his wild grandfather (voiced by Bill Nighy, who else?), an enthusiastic elf, and some reindeer. Arthur Christmas is the feel-good movie we all need this year.

Batman Returns

Batman you ask? A Christmas movie you say? How dare you! Batman Returns belongs smack back at the top of the tree. It’s got everything you could ever want being beamed straight into your tinsel adorned living room – Danny Devito in a filthy baby romper, a zombie Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Keaton’s eyebrows and tiny penguin assassins determined to blow up Gotham on Christmas. Batman might have had a few updates here and there, but if you’re searching for the real deal, look no further than Batman Returns.

Fatman

Christmas cheer? More like Christmas fear! Chris Cringle is just your ordinary grizzled old man, eking out a living with his wife Ruth in the back roads of Alaska. Together they run a Christmas present shop but, with the overrun of mass-produced goods, business is very bad. So bad in fact that Cringle has to turn to the US military if he’s going to make it. Worse still, on the other side of the world a 12-year-old millionaire has woken up with a lump of coal where his present should be, and he knows exactly who’s to blame. The kid hires an assassin to polish off Cringle, but Cringle is ready and there is no way he’s going down without a fight. Guys, I don’t know when to tell you this, but I think Chris Cringle might be Santa Claus….watch it and find out.
