So, here’s how this works. We’ve got our own top picks right up at the top here, but you don’t have to take our word for it. After that, we have the complete list of everything out there!

Bad Santa (2003)

NetflixHulu

Naughty boys and girls get lumps of coal at Christmastime, but what does a naughty Santa get? Billy Bob Thornton’s Bad Santa packs extra holiday glutton, binging on sex and drugs, all while plotting to loot merchandise with Santa’s unforgettable mischievous little helper, played by Tony Cox. Holiday season pessimists be wary:  What looks like a middle finger to Charlie Brown, Rudolph, and the endless stream of ABC Family fluff may have more heart to it than it lets on.

The Holiday

Amazon

What is it about Christmas and romance that goes hand in hand? Maybe it’s the eggnog or the entrancing peacefulness of falling snow. Whatever the reason, the holidays are a wonderful time to get in touch with your sensitive side. In other words the holidays are a good time to watch The Holiday. The Holiday is a conventional, yet enchanting romantic comedy about two women, Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet (their characters technically have name but just call them Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet) who decide to swap homes for their Christmas holiday. Winslet heads to Los Angeles and Diaz heads to Surrey, England. While in their new lives, each woman learns to love their new surroundings and perhaps also some new dudes. 

Krampus

HBO

You know what you need? A movie about Santa’s opposite number. The mythical creature who rounds up naughty children during the Christmas season is the focus of this flick from director Michael Dougherty (who we will always love for Trick r’ Treat).

Krampus isn’t exactly a holiday classic, but it sure is a lot of fun, with some clever scares that will have you adding extra fortification to your eggnog. It’s PG-13, so the horror is almost family friendly. Almost.

The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)

HBO

The Muppet Christmas Carol is not only an excellent (possibly even the best) Muppet movie, it’s also a remarkable adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic, and one that deserves to stand alongside Alastair Sim or Albert Finney or any of the more “traditional” versions. Michael Caine is magnificent as Scrooge, playing the role absolutely straight despite the fact that virtually all of his co-stars are made of felt. Throw in some songs guaranteed to make you misty-eyed for good measure, and you’ve got an absolute classic for the ages.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Netflix

But The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween movie! Sure, it’s that. It’s also a Christmas movie. It says so right there in the title, sillybilly. In all seriousness, The Nightmare Before Christmas is a much more traditional Christmas movie than you may remember. Tim Burton’s stop-motion masterpiece is funny, intriguing, and wildly entertaining. It also tells a touching story about one person trying to get into the spirit of the holidays. That the person in question is be a skeleton named Jack who lives in Halloween Town takes nothing away from this movie’s Christmas spirit. There are songs. Songs!

White Christmas (1954)

Netflix

There is no overstating how powerful an impact Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” single had on the American boys fighting in World War II. Giving the G.I.s a taste of home and peace during the darkest moments of their life, it remains still the quintessential Christmas melody in American life. So even if it was technically part of a fine Christmas movie already, Holiday Inn (1942) to be exact, doesn’t mean Hollywood couldn’t return to that well again.

And so they did with White Christmas (1954), a heartstring-tugging comedy that directly acknowledges the song’s role in World War II by recasting Crosby as a war vet who has toured the country with Danny Kaye, but now wants to spend Christmas in the snow with a lovely sister act (Rosemary Clooney, Vera-Ellen). Along the way, they perform some of the most memorable and beloved musical numbers in classic Hollywood history. Cheers to that.

And here’s the complete list, just in case you don’t like our choices!
