Yeah, it’s December already, the New Year is on its way! And even if it’s the most wonderful time of the year, many people view the holiday season truly depressing. Not only do you need to buy people presents but also prepare yourself for New Year’s resolutions and a new life. Bet you need an injection of holiday spirit! Rest assured that the best New Year movies have so much for you to offer and will help you to get in the spirit and be a holiday reveler . There is something special for everyone at New Years. You are surely busy trimming a Christmas tree or baking some cookies, yet it is so important to spend this magical time with your nearest and dearest, cause this is a family holiday anyway. Why not use this time to curl up on your cosy couch with the children and watch some festive films. So hurry up, grab some popcorn or eggnog and check out the best movies according to our list.



Miracle on 34th Street
A story of a man who claims to be the real-life Santa Claus. Evergreen for the holiday season. So you don’t believe in Santa Claus? If you want to stay in the team of non-believers – don’t watch it.



Batman Returns
Director Tim Burton usually sets his films at Christmastime. But it’s not just an ordinary movie, it’s a work of art and Tim Burton is an artist. This sequel is even better than the original. This is a perfect film for those who want to explore something a bit more spooky as the season settles in. Plus, its dark, wintry mood is just about perfect if you are trying to get in the seasonal spirit.

The Holiday
Two gorgeous women fed up with guys-problems decided to swap homes and see what’s gonna happen next. If you are looking for a light-hearted entertaining movie, I’d definitely recommend you this one. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be in awe at times, but for sure you won’t be bored. It’ll surely surpass all your original expectations; get ready to even drop your jaw a couple of times.



Grinch is a movie with a deep meaning, but not everyone managed to dig up the main idea of it. Once upon a time a green hairy man stole Christmas because he really hated this time of the year, and thought that the only way to stop this holiday was to take the Christmas mood away. But fortunately this movie shows us the other side of human nature, because this guy turned out to be hugely funny and kids just go crazy over this fantastic movie with an unpredictable happy ending.



Love Actually
It’s all about Love… Actually. That’s what we all are seeking especially during the Christmas-New Year holiday. If you are in for some love then this holiday romantic love story with beautiful people is for you. It is definitely the kind of movie that surprises.

There have been plenty of horror movies set at Christmas time, but this is one of the few that plays as almost frightfully joyful. A bunch of tiny monsters appear in the perfect small town as the holidays settle in. It’s crazy, gory, and great, and it will ensure that your fireplace will never look the same to you.


This movie is positively in the romantic holiday fantasy genre, it may even be called the ultimate romantic comedy. So if you are looking for a beautiful and heart warming movie to kill some time while you are chilling at home, this one is certainly for you.




Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Who hasn’t heard of Harry Potter by now? If there are such people left, they should definitely start watching this masterpiece beginning NOW! Since Christmas is coming everyone begins to believe in magic and we obviously need proof that miracles do actually happen. Now what can I say that hasn’t been already said? Harry Potter will teach you some valuable lessons and fill your heart with warmth and hope for the best. It is a truly a wonderful movie for the child that lives in each of us. Turn it on and let the magic begin!

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Only Tim Burton, the man who gave us Batman and Edward Scissorhands, could have come up with such a dark view of the Christmas season and create an exclusive and wondrous world. This oddly bemusing animated treat has a grotesque attractiveness, and bizarre magic. This awesome movie is in a class by itself for both kids and adults.

Home alone
Home Alone is a straight classic, bet you saw this movie a million times and will watch it once again. For many people it’s just like some kind of New Year’s symbol. I would say that’s the coolest family movie to watch this year, even if you are tired of the same old jokes.



Bridget Jones’s Diary
It’s an iconic movie which makes us feel the story like we were right there in Bridget’s apartment with strong feelings and a ridiculous perspective of a lifetime. She is unlucky in love, slightly overweight, a heavy smoker and has a huge list of New Year’s resolutions. This is her lucky year – she met two men at the same time, but will she choose Mr. Right?

Bad Santa
Bad Santa is that kind of movie that is so stupid it’s already hilarious again; the main protagonist is a typical loser who turned into a hero, a bad guy’s gone good. This movie is pretty funny and Christmasy so it’s a perfect choice to relax and chill while watching it.

Lost Christmas
It’s more than an ordinary movie; it’s a magical story which depicts self-sacrifice and destiny filled with deep emotions and outstanding humor, this beautiful contemporary fairy-story has all the ingredients of a classic Christmas film. It is a movie that needs to be seen the second time to be completely appreciated. It deserves being on our top list.



Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

A young boy wins a tour through the most outstanding chocolate factory around the world, run by the world’s most extraordinary candy maker. But not everything goes according to plan within the factory. The plot is simply wonderful; a brilliantly imagined story that will win old fans and new fans alike.

Here you’ll find everything from action and fantasy to romance and comedy, not forgetting the New Year’s mood. It’s impossible not to feel this deep connection with the main characters. This is a huge movie, magical in every way, which will bring you nothing but joy and pleasure.



While considering which films do truly deserve a place on our top list, I got a strong urge to rewatch every single movie! I hope you have found at least one or two of these movies that you’ll sit down and enjoy again as well.
