It’s Christmas, our favourite time of the year and binge-watching your favourite movies are just one of the many fun ways to spend the holidays. Whether you’re spending it alone or with family, watching a good movie should be a Christmas tradition. If you need help deciding what to watch, here’s a list of some old and new movies that are perfect for the season.
What kind of list would this be if we didn’t bring back this classic? The 1990 Christmas classic was so good that the producers kept going with five installations! Home Alone is one of those movies that never get boring.
A Naija Christmas
This Nigerian Christmas movie quickly became a favourite after its release in 2021. This Kunle Afolayan movie is an easy watch and stars Kunle Remi, Efa Iwara, Linda Osifo, Abayomi Alvin, the Late Rachel Oniga, and many others. ‘A Naija Christmas’ has quite a high re-watch value, and we definitely recommend you add it to your watch list.
Coming to America
This is another Hollywood classic that is totally worth re-watching. We recommend you watch both the 1998 classic and its 2021 sequel.
Christmas in Miami
This 2021 Christmas comedy was produced by AY Makun and featured a star-studded cast inclusive of; AY Makun himself, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Osita Iheme, IK Ogbonna, and many more. It’s a hilarious watch, so kick back and enjoy!
This is one your kids will enjoy, and if you are an adult who loves animation, you should also watch this. The 2018 release, like its predecessors, is based on the book by Dr Seuss, ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’. It stars Benjamin Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, Pharell Williams, Mindy Sterling, Kenan Thompson and many others.
