‘White Christmas’ starring Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye

This old Christmas staple is still worth watching during a pre-Christmas binge. The movie stars Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye as two former GIs and the two sisters, played by Rosemary Clooney (George Clooney's aunt) and Vera-Ellen who catch the guys’ eyes. The four team up to put on a variety show in an attempt to save an inn from being closed. The title song is one often played over the Christmas period, but there is great music and entertainment throughout the film.


'How the Grinch stole Christmas'

“How the Grinch stole Christmas” is a film adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ Christmas story about the reclusive Grinch, played hilariously by comedian and actor Jim Carrey. The green Grinch makes up his mind to ruin Christmas for the residents of Whoville. He heads down from his home in the mountains with his dog, Max, stealing everything Christmas-related from the residents, known as the Whos. However along the way, the Grinch encounters Cindy Lou Who (played by Taylor Momsen) who upsets his plans.


'The Holiday Calendar' is new from Netflix

While most of the movies listed here are much-loved staples, Netflix has introduced a new movie to the list. “The Holiday Calendar” tells the tale of Abby, a photographer who is unsure of her future. Her family tell Abby that photography is a hobby, not a career, while she takes odd jobs, including taking photos of children with Santa Claus, to be able to pay her bills. This all changes when her grandfather gives Abby a special and unique antique advent calendar.


'The Christmas Chronicles' new from Netflix

Another new original movie coming from Netflix this year is “The Christmas Chronicles.” Starring Kurt Russell as Santa Claus, it tells the tale of brother and sister, Kate and Teddy Pierce, who are left home alone on Christmas Eve when their mother has to work. They hatch a plan to capture Santa Claus, but their plan goes wrong when they meet the man himself, after causing his sleigh to crash. They end up joining forces with Santa and his elves to save Christmas.


'A Christmas Prince' cheesy royal omance

For those in the mood for a cheesy romance, “A Christmas Prince” is the ideal film. The film tells the story of Amber, an American journalist who is sent to investigate a story relating to the Royal family in a made-up European country. Her focus is on a playboy handsome prince.
