OK, I know that you’re all fans of Home Alone, but I think that we should all experiment this year. Check out my list of the best movies to watch during Christmas, and enjoy them with your families!

1. „JOY” (DIR. DAVID O. RUSEL, 2015) 

If you still haven’t seen that movie, now it’s a great time to do so. Watch the story of a woman who decides to follow her dreams and do everything to get a better future for her family. The script is based on an authentic story of Joy Mangano, who earned millions on her invention called “the wonderful sweep”. That movie will surely give you a different perspective on your job and chores. 😀 P.S. Jennifer Lawrence was nominated for an Oscar for that role. And she totally earned that 😉

1. MOVIE “Joy” | 2. ALBUM “Woody Allen & Jazz” | 3. ALBUM “Blade Runner Soundtrack” 

2. „BLADE RUNNER 2049” (DIR. DENNIS VILLENEUVE, 2017) 

This movie had been announced a cult one even before it premiered. It relates to the popular Blade Runner from 1982 with Ryan Gosling. The movie’s full of unpredictable twists, so watch it carefully 😉 The end of the story is totally surprising, but… shhh, I’m not gonna say another word 😀

3. „WONDER WHEEL” (DIR. WOODY ALLEN, 2017) 

The newest production of a real movie master, Woody Allen, starring Kate Winslet and Justin Timberlake, with the famous Coney Island in the background, and taking part in the 50s. Don’t expect an action movie, though. The story is all about intelligent dialogues, which Allen (82 years old!) is famous for.

„Christmas is the perfect time to watch the movies that you haven’t had time for before. A romantic film, or a funny comedy? I watch them all!

4. „KUNG FU PANDA 3” (DIR. JENNIFER YUH, ALESSANDRO CARLONI, 2016) 

My list of Christmas movies wouldn’t have been complete without a nice story about the power of dreams and friendship. Watch it, regardless of how old you are 😉 If you still haven’t had a chance to watch the previous parts, you finally have time to do that! Prepare for a movie marathon with a brave panda 😉

5. „HIDDEN FIGURES” (dir. THEODORE MELFI, 2016)

A fascinating story of three brilliant Afroamerican women, who began their careers in NASA in the 50-ies and 60-ies and helped send the first American in history to space. As it’s easy to figure out, the movie is not about space, but social obstacles and prejudice that one needs to overtake. I’m a great fan of stories about fighting stereotypes!

4.  MOVIE “La La Land”

6. „LA LA LAND” (DIR. DAMIEN CHAZELLE, 2016) 

If you missed the musical in the Cinema, you totally need to watch it during Christmas. It’s the time when we all need romantic stories with nice music and the handsome Ryan Gosling 😉 It’s full of strong dialogues about how important (and why) making your dreams come true is. A perfect inspiration to create your own list of New Year’s resolutions. What I love about La La Land are the colors. The combination of yellow, violet, and cobalt is AMAZING!

7. „TONI ERDMANN” (DIR. MAREN ADE, 2016) 

A bitter-sweet movie which makes you think. It tells the story of a father and a daughter to which most of us can relate 😉 Be careful, though. This movie features a few absurd moments that will surprise you and make you laugh. Watch it with your friend, who likes weird movies 😉

8. „LABOR DAY” (DIR. JASON REITMAN, 2013) 

A romantic and suspenseful story of a woman raising her son alone, who is forced to help a wounded acquaintance, who’s just escaped from prison. If you love good acting, you’ll find Kate Winslet’s role totally convincing.

5. MOVIE “Toni Erdmann” 

9. „THE SQUARE” (DIR. RUBEN OSLUND, 2017)

Absurd humor and modern world problems in a distorted mirror. It makes everyone laugh, not only those, who are interested in the world of modern art. The movie is a witty story of the power of social media, and… parent’s love for us 😉
