8. Noel On Netflix
Noel is one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies. Although low budget, Noel has a lot of familiar faces including Susan Sarandon, Penelope Cruz, and the late Paul Walker. Paul Walker is brilliant in this movie and it is great for any Paul Walker fans to see. This movie is similar to Love Actually in the way that it follows different characters and different plots, that all intertwine in some way by the end of the movie. This movie in particular does the intertwining beautifully leaving no loose ends and having you feel all warm inside closer to the end. This movie has never been and is not a very popular Christmas movie, and I have yet to figure out why. It has brilliant acting, a charming plot line and very well-like actors. Another actor you can expect to find in this lovely movie is Robin Williams. Robin Williams plays a very interesting role in this movie, considering his life. It is a beautiful movie filled with love, sacrifice, laughter, loss, and new beginnings. A tear or two might shed, but it’s definitely worth the watch.
9. Miracle on 34th Street On Netflix
Miracle on 34th Street is a classic. If you haven’t seen it, it is definitely a must see. Set during the holiday time in New York City, a young girl, Dorey and a lawyer set out to prove a man is the real santa clause. This movie that is on Netflix is made in 1994 and is a remake of the original movie that was actually made in 1947. They are both good versions, but this one on Netflix is more relatable to today. Watch for a classic Christmas movie experience to bring in the joy of the holidays to your home.
