Welcome to December, A chill is in the air and Christmas is looming. And to celebrate the 24 day countdown to Christmas, we present you the Christmas Movie Countdown! All the films you can watch on UK streaming platforms as you count down the days to the arrival of the big day on the 25th. Enjoy.
All the films selected are from the Christmas movie genre. They might might be family comedies, classics, animation or a straight up feel-good movie, but be assured they are all Christmas movies for you. We will present one a day, some maybe more obvious enteries than others, but we hope that you enjoy them all.
Why not watch along with us each day for the 24 days and let us know what you think of the daily choices via our social community? You can follow, like, share and comment via the buttons below.
When young Buddy falls into Santa’s gift sack on Christmas Eve, he’s transported back to the North Pole and raised as a toy-making elf by Santa’s helpers. But as he grows into adulthood, he can’t shake the nagging feeling that he doesn’t belong. Buddy vows to visit Manhattan and find his real dad, a workaholic publisher.
So it’s Saturday night on the Screen One Christmas Movie Countdown which means it’s time for one of the big Christmas movies for tonights viewing. Elf not only became a much loved Christmas movie very quickly, but it’s the film that shot Will Ferrell to superstardom. Without this it’s unlikely that Anchorman would have ever seen the light of day and Ferrells anarchic humour would have been wasted. With James Caan, it adds some real weight to proceedings but this also featured an early appearance from Game Of Thrones Tyrion Lannister himself the brilliant Peter Dinklage. This is a film that is watched by pretty much every family when you mention Christmas movies these days so it would be remiss of us not to include it. So here it is for you tonight. Don’t forget to join us tomorrow for another Christams cracker of a movie!
