This is not your usual list of Christmas movies, but this is my list of movies I recommend if you are like me and tired of all those Christmas movie remakes, Cinderella Stories and Christmas sing-alongs.
1. Die hard - Watch John McClane (Bruce Willis), an NYC cop as he tries to reconcile with his estranged wife in an L.A. skyscraper only to be interrupted by a bunch of machine-gun-toting terrorists lead by one of the greatest memorable villains of all time played by Alan Rickman.
2. Lethal weapon - Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover), an ageing detective is partnered with Martin Riggs(Mel Gibson), a younger, somewhat unstable detective whose wife and unborn child was murdered. These two unlikely friends and bickering cops take on a mission to take down drugs dealers.
3. Long Kiss Goodnight - Samantha Caine(Geena Davis) is a suburban homemaker, mom to her 8-year-old daughter Caitlin, living in the small town of Honesdale. That was until she was in a car accident where she took a hit to the head, resulting in her remembering small parts of her life as a lethal secret agent. Except now her old colleges are trying to kill her, so she enlists the help of a cheap detective named Mitch (Samuel L Jackson) to complete her last mission.
4. The Holiday - A lovely romantic comedy where two women Iris(Kate Winslet) a wedding columnist and Amanda(Cameron Diaz) a workaholic business executive find themselves in need of a holiday away from their lives and men, they decided to swap houses for two weeks. Grab some hot cocoa and put your feet up for this one, definitely worth the watch.
5. Bridget Jones' Diary - Bridget Jones(Renée Zellweger) is an average woman, in this romantic comedy-drama, about a woman struggling against her age, her weight, her job, her lack of a man, and her many flaws. Bridget decides to take control of her life, starting by keeping a diary in which she will always tell the whole truth. Thrown into the mix are Bridget's somewhat eccentric friends, hideous Christmas sweaters.
6. The Nightmare Before Christmas - There’s something incredibly enchanting about this stop-motion, musical from Tim Burton. A gorgeous movie, filled with loveable characters about a botched Halloween-Christmas merger, this movie is enjoyable for the whole family.
