Best Christmas films

When the weather is cold, the deep green or snowy white Christmas tree is in the living room, and the family is all gathered about, there is nothing better on a Christmas night than a great Christmas film. Here is my Christmas film list.

1. A Christmas Carol is a 2009 Disney film written and directed by Robert Zemeckis. It is an adaptation of Charles Dickens novel story of the same name and stars Jim Carrey in a multitude of roles, including Ebenezer Scrooge as a young, middle-aged, and old man, and the three ghosts who haunt Scrooge.

Here you can watch the trailer:

2. Nativity! is a British comedy directed by Debbie Isittand released on 27 November 2009. The film stars Martin Freeman and Ashley Jensen. It was released in cinemas on 27 November three weeks after rival festive film Disney’s A Christmas Carol opened.

Watch the trailer. Really fun!

3. Everybody’s Fine is a 2009 American comedy-drama film that is written and directed by Kirk Jones, and stars Robert De Niro, Drew Barrymore, Sam Rockwell, and Kate Beckinsale. It is a remake of the Giuseppe Tornatore film Stanno Tutti Bene.

Here is the trailer:

4. Love Actually is a 2003 romantic comedy film written and directed by Richard Curtis. It shows different aspects of love as shown through ten separate stories involving a wide variety of individuals, many of whom are shown to be interlinked as their tales progress. Set in London, the film begins five weeks before Christmas and is played out in a weekly countdown until the holiday, followed by an epilogue that takes place one month later.

Watch the trailer:

5. And finally, a film released this Christmas time. The Nutcracker in 3D is a 2010 3D fantasy film and an adaptation of the ballet The Nutcracker directed by Andrei Konchalovsky.

The film met with universally negative reviews from critics upon release in the United States. Watch the trailer and give us your opinion.
