With December almost upon us, it’s definitely time to break out the festive films for some cosy movie nights. Here is a list of some of the top films for the season, many of which may be lurking in your VHS collection. To make sure these iconic films are preserved for many more movie nights over the coming years, be sure to transfer your videos to DVD.
It’s A Wonderful Life (1946)
No Christmas film list would be compete without this wonderful, feel-good film. Not only is it a great Christmas film, it’s also considered the 11th greatest American film of all time by the American Film Institute. It’s the perfect movie for remembering what the festive season is all about, and for making bell-ringing seem just that bit more magical!
This is another classic for the festive season, which is as loved by children today as it was when it was first released in 1947. The film won a number of Oscars that year, and for good reason: it’s a well-made and well-loved movie for all the family.
This one is a fantastic take on Charles Dickens’ classic tale. The story has been told many times, but few are as well done as the 1951 adaption starring Alastair Sims. It’s a fantastic tale of redemption that will be sure to have you reaching for the tissues before the credits roll.
This incredibly and unashamedly sentimental flick is absolutely adorable – and what’s not to love about Bing Crosby! Its wonderful songs and dance numbers will have you dreaming of a white Christmas.
By far the best film adaptation of any Dr Seuss story, Jim Carrey brings the Grinch to the big screen in this fun and festive tale, full of sweet moments and amazing hairstyles.
A firm favourite for all ages, this modern classic is a must-watch. With a star-studded cast list and an amazing dance sequence at 10 Downing Street, there is nothing to not love (and laugh at) in Love Actually.
