This holiday season, we’ve collated a list of the top movies on Netflix that you need to watch now.

1. Last Christmas (2019)
Whether you know her for slaying her way through Game Of Thrones, or for starring as Louisa in Me Before You, it is without a doubt that Emilia Clark is a brilliantly versatile actress with a great taste in hit movies and tv shows.
In this festive season film, she takes on the role of Kate, a young 26 year old who works as an Elf in Central London.
She’s aspiring to be a singer, however after an unsuccessful audition, things start to take a drastic turn for the worst.
Does this call for someone to come and save her from the downward spiral she feels like she’s on? Of course it does, and that’s when we’re introduced to Tom!
Soon after meeting Tom, Kate’s life begins to change. Watch now to find out how.
2. Office Christmas Party (2016)
The Office Christmas Party is absolutely everyone’s dream idea of a party when it comes to the working environment (and not to put a downer on your day, totally unrealistic!!)
It gives off such Wolf Of Wall Street party vibes – does anyone else feel this?
For those who haven’t seen it, we’ll give you a quick run down.
After lots of issues within the company and future uncertainty, CEO Carol Vanstone (Jennifer Anniston) threatens to lay off about 40% of the workforce and even cancel the Christmas Party.
Obviously, this news does not go down well and their last fight to save the company lies in the hands of partnering with the financial giant – Walter.
Walter likes the pitch, but fears they care more about the budget than their people.
This triggers Branch Manager, Clay, to throw the biggest social event of the year for all of his staff, and invite Walter to join.
When we say things go from bad to worse, we’re just going to have to let you watch it to find out why…
However we promise this is one to watch this festive period!
3. Click and Collect (2018)
Are you a fan of your neighbour? If you are, well you’re super lucky ‘cos quite a lot of people have issues when it comes to who they unfortunately live next to.
Especially in Click and Collect, we’re introduced to two completely mismatched neighbours.
Andrew Bennett is an uptight father who lives with his wife and child. His next door neighbour, Dev DeCruz is an over-friendly, Christmas loving individual who lives on his own.
When Andrew finds out his daughter’s heart is set on Sparklehoof the Unicorn Princess as her main Christmas present, Dev comes to the rescue and orders the last one online for her to save the day.
Little does Andrew know that it’s actually a click and collect 4 and a half hours away in Cardiff…and that calls for a long car journey!
Do they get the unicorn? Do they make it home in time for Christmas? Find out by watching it now!

Who doesn’t love Emma Roberts? She’s an icon in films that we’re completely obsessed with.
Holidate is a 2020 film by Netflix and uncovers the life of Sloane, the only sibling in the family to not have a date for the holidays.
Not only does she not want one, but her family profusely remind her how single she is – how annoying!
After bumping into Jackson in the mall, these two strangers decide to become eachothers platonic plus ones for all holiday events.
As time goes on, you can already imagine just how ‘platonic’ this relationship really is.

2. Nativity (2009)
If it gets to the 25th of December and you haven’t switched this holiday movie on, then just cancel Christmas. Now.
It’ll take you right back to your Nativity-filled childhood days, when the only thing you had to worry about was whether you could smile and wave for your parents in the audience (lol, we all did it, didn’t we?!?)
When Hollywood are rumoured to be attending St Bernadette’s Primary School to watch their Nativity, the whole school and local community go wild.
Even if it was a little white lie from Paul, the Primary School teacher, leading the Nativity play this year.
