Watching Christmas movies

Bingeworthy Christmas movies on BINGE

The holiday season is well and truly here – after a long hard day of being festive, there’s nothing quite like kicking back with a classic Christmas flick. If the Christmas movies available on streamers like Netflix and Disney+ aren’t for you,  BINGE might be the way to go. Find out what Christmas movies to watch on BINGE with this Canstar Blue guide.

Best Christmas movies on BINGE

If you’re looking to get into that Christmas feeling, here’s a list of the top ten Christmas films to watch on BINGE:

  • Scrooged
  • The Polar Express
  • Christmas with the Kranks
  • The Grinch
  • 8-Bit Christmas
  • The Night Before
  • National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
  • The Holiday
  • Elf
  • Love Actually


Scrooged is a fresh take on the timeless classic, A Christmas Carol. Bill Murray plays a cynical TV executive in need of reform and with the help of three visiting ghosts, he does just that. This Christmas movie stands out from the rest with its witty dialogue and satirical humour. Scrooged is a great film to watch if you’re in need of some Christmas cheer, a good laugh and a meaningful reminder that redemption is always possible.

The Polar Express

The Polar Express is a heartwarming and festive film that takes viewers aboard a magical train that’s bound for the North Pole. It follows a young boy on a quest to rediscover the spirit of Christmas. This film uniquely emphasises the importance of friendship, imagination and wonder. With visually stunning animation and the all-star cast of Tom Hanks and Josh Hutcherson, this is a must-see Christmas movie.

Christmas with the Kranks

This film follows Luther and Nora Krank, as they try to embark on a Caribbean cruise in place of Christmas. Unfortunately, the couple’s beach plans get thrown into chaos by their daughter’s announcement that she’ll be returning home for the holidays. Christmas with the Kranks has the perfect blend of humour, festivities and heartwarming moments, making it a great film for you to watch this Christmas.

The Grinch

While Jim Carrey may be the most famous Grinch, Benedict Cumberbatch’s version is a great animated alternative. The Grinch follows the titular character and his pet dog Max as they plan to stop the Christmas celebration of Whoville by stealing all of their decorations and presents. However, a chance encounter with six-year-old Cindy changes his ways and his heart, restoring Christmas back to its full glory.

8-Bit Christmas

Jake Doyle embarks on a trip with his daughter Annie to visit the house he grew up in. As they wait for the rest of the family to arrive, Annie begins to complain about not getting her dream gift for Christmas – a phone. To put things in perspective, Jake begins to tell her the epic saga of 1987, where he battled the entire town for the opportunity to get his hands on the local rich kid’s Nintendo. Whether you were a kid then or have a kid now, 8-Bit Christmas has something for everyone.

The Night Before

Christmas is all about spending time with those you love – something the characters in The Night Before embrace. Three friends Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) spend every Christmas Eve together on a joint quest to find the Nutcracker Ball, an exclusive party. With life pulling them in different directions, this year’s celebrations are strained. Through the miracle of Christmas (and a few extracurriculars) the friends reconcile and continue their tradition, making this a fantastic festive comedy.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is an all-time classic film that sees Chevy Chase star as Clark Griswold. In this movie, Clark tries to visit relatives to have a good old-fashioned Christmas together. As with any National Lampoon adventure, the journey quickly turns into shenanigans and missteps, with plenty of laughs along the way. This is a great Christmas film to watch with your whole family.

The Holiday

The Holiday is a delightful romantic comedy set around the festive season. It follows two women who swap homes (and countries) to escape their respective relationship troubles. This film has a star-studded cast: Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Jack Black and a slew of other talented actors. With a feel-good narrative and picturesque settings, The Holiday stands as an enjoyable Christmas film for all.


Elf, a true holiday classic, captivates audiences with its feel-good story and laugh-out-loud gags. It follows Buddy, a human raised by elves at the North Pole, who sets out to find his real father in New York. The film features an all-star cast of Will Ferrell, Zoey Deschanel, James Caan, Peter Dinklage and Mary Steenburgen. Packed with festive cheer and humour, Elf blends endearing performances and charming characters to create the perfect Christmas movie viewing experience.

Love Actually

Since its release in 2003, Love Actually has cemented its status as a Christmas icon. The film, set in London, follows the interconnected lives of charming characters as they navigate love and relationships in the lead up to Christmas. Director Richard Curtis (of Notting Hill and Four Weddings and a Funeral fame) expertly mixes British wit with awkward moments to create a holiday classic, while the star-studded cast, including Hugh Grant, Keira Knightly, Colin Firth, Emma Thompson and Liam Neeson, deliver performances that have viewers weeping and cheering for them throughout.
