Holiday Movies To Watch On Netflix In 2017
If you are nostalgic about classic Christmas movies, then a look at the "Holiday Favorites" section on Netflix will bring out your inner Grinch. So many of your favorites aren't there. Where is Home Alone? Where is the version of A Christmas Carol where Mickey Mouse plays Bob Cratchit and Goofy plays the ghost of Jacob Marley? Netflix has plenty of holiday offerings this year, but what can you watch if you prefer to wrap Christmas presents while watching Ralphie nearly shoot his eye out or hearing Thurl Ravenscroft sing the original theme song to "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"? Even modern classics like Elf with Will Ferrell aren't on Netflix this year. Fortunately, Netflix does have some holiday movies for almost every taste, whether you are first in line for the season's first pumpkin spice latte or whether you have garlic in your soul. Looking for the best holiday movies on Netflix in 2017? Here are some recommendations for holiday movies on Netflix!
Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas
At once edgy and heartwarming, The Nightmare before Christmas never gets old. The film's creepy visual style and ultimately optimistic message show Tim Burton at his creative peak. If you are looking for classic holiday movies on Netflix, you can hardly do better than The Nightmare Before Christmas.
A Very Murray Christmas Starring Bill Murray
Even though A Very Murray Christmas just came out in 2015, the movie will trigger feelings of nostalgia for fans of Bill Murray, whether among baby boomers whose earliest memories of Murray are of his lounge singer act on Saturday Night Live or among younger fans who first knew Murray as a hapless everyman in movies like Groundhog Day and Lost in Translation. Murray showcases his musical talents throughout the movie, which has a star-studded cast including George Clooney and Michael Cera, among many others. Its "show must go on" theme will remind viewers of a certain age of classic episodes of The Muppet Show.
Radio City Christmas Spectacular Starring The Rockettes
In case the music and dancing in A Very Murray Christmas were not enough, you can really feast your ears on your favorite holiday songs with Radio City Christmas Spectacular. The music takes center stage in this movie, which features the Rockettes, the famous Radio City Music Hall dancers.
Pete's Christmas Starring Zachary Gordon
Of the newer and lower profile holiday movies on Netflix, Pete's Christmas appears to be a winner. Zachary Gordon stars as Pete, for whom Christmas Day is stuck in a repeating loop. The movie shares its "same day repeated endlessly" theme with Bill Murray's classic Groundhog Day and with Alf Mabrouk starring Ahmad Hilmi.
Bob's Broken Sleigh
Lots of people will be disappointed not to see Elf among this year's holiday movies on Netflix, but Bob's Broken Sleigh might offer them some consolation. Like Elf, Bob's Broken Sleigh revolves around the misadventures of a well-meaning elf. For much of the movie, Bob the Elf, voiced by Cole Howard, is trying to get back to the North Pole in time for Christmas. While most of the holiday movies on Netflix are family-friendly, Bob's Broken Sleigh specifically has an audience of children in mind.
