Merry Christmas everyone! Is it officially Christmas break for you? Personally, I’m not on an official holiday break because I think I pretty much used up my leave credits at work. But who says I can’t enjoy this merry season? Taking what free time I have to do some more reading and watching Netflix.
Speaking of which, I’ve got a few suggestions of movies to watch this Christmas. Some of these suggestions are already tried and true classics while some you might find to be new.
1. Home Alone
Of course, this is a true blue classic film to watch during this season! It stars a young Macaulay Culkin as an 8 year old troublemaker who gets left home alone while his family goes on vacation and finds himself needing to defend his house from thieves.
Speaking of this being a classic, Google just released an ad starring Macaulay Culkin recreating some famous scenes from this movie! Check it out below:
2. Princess Switch
Identical twins they’re not! But they do look very much alike. In this new Netflix original, Vanessa Hudgens plays a double role as a duchess about to be married to a prince and an ordinary but talented baker from Chicago. One week before Christmas, they meet each other in Belgravia when the latter flies there for a baking competition and decide to switch places for two days.
It’s not a groundbreaking story. It’s also not the first to have a look alike switcharoo story line as it’s been done before (The Parent Trap – a classic!; Lizzie Mcguirre movie; Monte Carlo) so you pretty much can predict what would happen in the film. But overlook it and you’ll get a feel good movie to watch during this merry season. Also it’s a delight hearing Vanessa Hudgens with an accent.
