Hi everyone! I hope you’ve had a good week since I last did one of these, as usual mine has been relatively quiet, but I finally have a job interview this week so I’m really excited about that, all those months of applying has finally paid off.
Anyway, as it’s Tuesday, I’m back with another Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week was meant to be Books I Want To Read Again, but I did that topic a while back and it hasn’t really changed much, so I’m mixing things up this week and doing a different topic. Since it’s the first day of December today, I thought a Christmassy topic would be in order instead, so I’m going to share my Top Ten Favourite Christmas Movies. I will admit, a lot of Christmas movies aren’t the best quality, but that’s kind of the point I think!
- Anna and The Apocalypse
I went to see this one at the cinema with my friends from Uni a couple of years ago, and it was so much fun! It’s zombies meets Christmas meets musical which I know sounds completely bonkers, but I swear it works! The soundtrack is awesome as well.
2. The Holiday
This is one of those Christmas movies that I watch every year. Is it cheesy and somewhat predictable? Yes, but that’s why I love romantic comedies and The Holiday is basically a rom-com but with added Christmas, which pretty much makes it perfect for me.
3. Last Christmas
I went to see this one at the cinema with a friend last year, and yes, again, it’s quite predictable but it definitely succeeds on the heartwarming Christmas vibes which is basically all you really want from a Christmas film.
4. Arthur Christmas
I saw a re-run of this a couple of years ago in the cinema with a Uni friend, and it was really sweet and surprisingly emotional for a film where the premise is Santa delivering presents.
5. The Princess Switch
One of Netflix’s many Christmas offerings. Is it incredibly cheesy and far-fetched? Yes. Did I have a great time watching it with my friends at Uni last year whilst we wrapped Christmas presents? Also yes.
6. Home Alone 2
I’ll be honest, I don’t actually remember if I ever saw the original Home Alone film? I probably did, but it was a while ago! It’s basically a carbon copy of the first one anyway, it’s one of those sequels that probably doesn’t need to exist, but it’s pretty fun.
7. A Heartland Christmas
Technically a TV movie, but I’m counting it because Heartland is one of my favourite shows and I love their Christmas special, it’s really heart-warming and cosy and that’s really what you want from a Christmas film. I hope they do another one before the series ends!
8. How The Grinch Stole Christmas
I haven’t watched this one in a while, but I remember enjoying it when I was a kid, and the more I see Grinch memes, the more I realise that I actually relate to certain aspects of the character!
That’s all I have for this week, a slightly shorter list than normal but there are a lot of films that I enjoy watching around Christmas that aren’t necessarily Christmas related (like Disney films etc) so I wanted to focus on the ones that actually have Christmas as a plot point. What are some of your favourite Christmas films? Let me know in the comments!
I’ll be back with another Top Ten Tuesday next week, it’s a Winter/Holiday Freebie and as I did a Winter Reads list a couple of years ago, I’m going to do Top Ten Wintery Covers as I really enjoyed doing the Autumn Covers topic earlier in the year and you guys always seem to enjoy cover themed posts!
