Happy December! We’re breaking out the holiday decorations and lighting up our homes in the coziest ways possible. Not feeling in the holiday spirit quite yet? Brick & Portal has the solution! Check our favorite spirited movies (good for all ages) to binge watch for instant new year cheers!
This no-doubt 90’s classic is a story about an 8-year-old hero who learns the importance of being careful what to wish for when he wakes up home alone! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, this movie has it all. “You can be too old for a lot of things,” but you’ll never be too old for this movie.
Will Farrell is a big elf in a small town who loves everything Christmas. When he moves to New York to find his real family, he takes his love for elf culture with him and doesn’t quite fit in. Of all our holiday favorites, this one is definitely the funniest, so have a good laugh and enjoy!
The Year Without a Santa Claus
Santa thinks no one believes in him anymore! When he comes down with a cold, he decides to cancel his Christmas eve delivery flight. This old school 1974 stop-motion film tells the tale of how Mrs. Claus and two elves prove to Santa that there is still Christmas spirit in the air to restore his holiday cheer. They really don’t make ‘em like this anymore!
It's A Wonderful Life
The holiday season is the best time to appreciate all that you have instead of thinking about what you want, like many of us do year round. This movie is perfect for rediscovering the value of all that’s in your heart this year.
The Santa Clause
Tim Allen’s got a new gig as Santa this year! While he may be reluctant at first, he’ll learn that this was a happy accident after all. We love this one for its comedy as well as heart-warming effects, enjoy!
A story about a boy who boards a magical train to the North Pole on Christmas Eve might just make you believe and magic and wonder again! Hint: You’ll want to break out the hot chocolate for this one, all aboard!
Charlie Brown Christmas
Even though this movie is over 50 years old, its topic about the commercialization of Christmas is definitely still relevant. Help rediscover the meaning of Christmas alongside Charlie Brown and his friends with this utterly heart-warming film!
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
If you’ve heard the classic Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer song, then you pretty much know the plot of this movie about a misfit reindeer who saves Christmas. But we bet you didn’t know that this 1964 film is the longest running Christmas Special of all time. (By the way, A Charlie Brown Christmas Special is the second.) It’s worth checking out!
Get cozy and enjoy, happy marathoning!
