The holiday season calls for some movie(s) binge-watching time with the family and loved ones. But let’s be honest; all of us have watched the movies like Home Alone, Elf, Love Actually, Miracle on 34th Street and It’s a Wonderful Life, like a zillion times.

Though there is nothing wrong with these movies, this year could be a great time to watch an underrated movie over these Christmas classics!

1. Bad Santa – 2003

Bad Santa

2.  Arthur Christmas – 2011

Arthur Christmas

This is an extremely cute Christmas film. It shows how Santa is able to deliver gifts to every child in the world on Christmas Eve with all the help from his sons and elves (they also have some really fancy tech).

But they realize Santa’s operation slips up and there has been a technical glitch and there’s one child who is left out. Arthur has just 2 hours to deliver a present to that young girl. Will he pull it off?

3. Klaus – 2019


Klaus is a heartwarming Christmas film that one shouldn’t miss! It’s a beautifully animated film that showcases a partnership that is developed between the postman Jasper Johannson and a toymaker named Klaus.

Jasper was the worst student at the academy and he was then sent to a frozen town in the North. Jasper’s friendship with Klaus grows and they deliver presents together and fill Christmas with love.
