Just enjoy the sheer wits that Kevin employs throughout, and the thieves’ failed attempts to do harm. There are traps, scares, and all things messy to keep the house out of harm’s way – all put in place by Kevin himself. This is a movie that never gets old and is always fun to watch.
Love Actually is one romantic film that is worth watching in the days leading up to Christmas. It has quite a great ensemble cast that stuns with the acting. The plot revolves around a handful of couples and how they experience and deal with love. It is a heartwarming collection of human stories and how in the end, they all come together in one way or another. There is a lot going on in this movie – it’s a ride from start to finish as there are so many characters involved. But thankfully, that only works in favor of the film.

The Chronicles of Narnia
If Harry Potter makes it to the list of must-watch holiday movies, why wouldn’t Narnia? Narnia is a thrilling saga of the Pevensie siblings stumbling into a secret, magical world.
