9 Underrated Christmas Movies that are Worth a Watch

There is a plethora of Christmas classics that families relish to watch in the holiday season. Almost all of us watch the more prominent titles as part of the Christmas movie marathon each year. But we tend to ignore the not-so-popular movies. I would urge you to consider adding the following underrated movies to your list this year. Thus, expanding your roster of Christmas movies.

Here are the best ones:

Miracle on 34th Street

The only reason for recommending this movie is Attenborough and his exceptional acting. Although this movie is nowhere near the 1947 classic with the same name, it is not without merits. You can call this movie a different retelling of the original classic produced by John Hughes.

The rest of the cast and even the plot might not impress you. But the Santa will astound you beyond words with his acting and the way he gets absorbed in that role. Consider it a comfort food movie and watch it with your family at this warm time of the year. I am lucky to have access to WOW cable TV channels that offer channels airing Christmas movies all day long at this time of the year. If you are a cord-cutter, you can watch the movie online.

Batman Returns

Before you frown upon this recommendation, let me do some explaining. Many (read: almost all) won’t be able to link the name Batman Returns to Christmas. However, the whole movie is shot against a Christmas backdrop. Hence, the suggestion. The plot of the movie revolves around the mysterious Batman and his fights apart from the outlandish villains and car sequences. No surprises there.

The fact that all the events of the movie take place in the setting of a snow-covered Gotham city makes Batman Returns a perfect candidate for the Christmas movies.

The Man Who Invented Christmas

You will find many adaptations of Charles Dickens Christmas Carol, but this movie gives attention to the author in its true sense. You will find it rather interesting to dive into Dickens’ creative process as narrated in the movie. It will be intriguing to watch his character come to life. The maddening portrayal of Charles Dickens in the movie by none other than Dan Stevens will leave you flabbergasted. This new take on the Christmas classic is a must-watch.

A Christmas Carol

This movie that premiered in 1999 is by far the most accurate portrayal of the classic tale. It’s a one-man-show adaptation. In my opinion, this movie is underrated and deserves more attention than it has received in all these years.

The Bishop’s Wife

The story of this movie revolves around the character Cary Grant who answers the prayer of David Niven (a bishop). The bishop needs funds for a new cathedral. Everything works fine and the operations remain smooth until the day the bishop catches the eye of Niven’s neglected wife. Watch the movie to see how interesting events unfold.

The Holly and the Ivy

This 1952 British drama film is an adaptation of the play with the same name. The plot of the story revolves around the widespread Gregory family. As the family’s tradition, everyone returns to the parsonage in their remote village at the time of Christmas. The whole story is a long unfolding of family events and problems. You, yourself will get involved in a rollercoaster of emotions as you watch all the events unfold.

We’re No Angels

Released in 1955, We’re No Angels was the first movie in a decade that was directed by the iconic duo Michael Curtiz and Humphrey Bogart. This comedy movie stars Bogie who plays the character of an escaped convict. Apart from that, you will see Peter Ustinov and Aldo Ray who are the fugitives as well. These three decide to help a befuddled shopkeeper. And the rest you will have to watch to laugh at all the fun that happens in the movie.

All That Heaven Allows

This movie has to do with class consciousness. This Douglas Sirk film stars a widow who gets romantically involved with a gardener. Thus, giving her class-conscious friends something to frown upon. Jane Wyman (the widow) decides against the norms and continues her relationship with the gardener. You will have to watch it for a more detailed analysis of the film.

Father Christmas

I came across this movie as a part of WOW cable specials suggestions. Intrigued, I watched this quirky alternative tale of Santa Clause. Calling it an alternative because, in most of the Christmas movies, Santa Claus assumes the character of a jolly and bright individual. But this movie shows the dark side of Santa’s life. Father Christmas shows Santa on a vacation that is interesting.

What makes the whole thing even more fascinating is Santa doing not-so-Santa things. For example, drinking wine on his trip to France.

I hope that you will consider watching one, some or all of the suggested movies. You won’t regret.

Will You Be Able to Be Happy About Your Life at the Moment of Your Last Breathe? – Don Che

There are two types of people in the world. Individuals who try to create or build something new for the world belongs to one category, while others do not try to do new things or only accept existence. So, what about you?

Today I will introduce you to a famous personality who always tries to create or do something new for the music world. Of course, you do not need to introduce him because you will recognize him as soon as you say his name. It is no more commentary, and today I am going to talk with one of the talented musicians and popular personalities, Don Che. 

Not only as a musician but also as a human, Don Che could lead his life to success. If we wish to achieve anything good, it is difficult to achieve it easily. That is nature. So, he must have faced many obstacles, failures, and sufferings on the way to success in his life.

Anyhow, Don Che, I would like you to raise your voice about your winning journey.

Yes, of course, we should work hard and face many failures and rejections. But we should focus on our ultimate goal because it will boost your energy, especially when you are in trouble.

When it turns to my journey, actually, it is a rollercoaster from the start. I said that is because my journey can be defined as a combination of anticipated successes, foreseen accomplishments and sprinkled with some minor disappointments.

But I am happy to say; I always tried to face all these situations and challenges with a strong and positive mindset.

However, I actually tried to be a man with proper patience for my professional career. Thus, I believe that patience is one of the greatest treatments for some troubles.

Also, I had to give extra energy to maneuver around all the disruptive traps that some people set up. However, do not give up. Fight for your dream!

If we have the best inspiration, it will fuel our ship of success. So, what is your inspiration to achieve where you are right now?

My inspiration comes from my surviving near-death altercations, regardless of the productive ambition and resilience I carry forward. Not only that, as human beings, many peoples categorized some achievements cannot be touched.

So, in my sight, I am joyful to break this opinion.  Because of that, I plan to reach insurmountable achievements as far as I live.

Now any person has to run with the competition. So, what is your opinion about the current market situation? 

The current market is whitewashed and volatile by the people who continue to persecute African American culture.  So, unfortunately, if these people continue to create music that perpetuates the killing of children, addiction to material possessions, etc., anyone cannot avoid the market becoming the tool for increasing the incarceration rates of many young and old African American men and women.

According to the idea of your many fans, Don Che loves original and unique creations. Is that true?

Yes, of course, I believe that duplications cannot ever reach the level of original or unique creations!

My audience is a group of people who listen to real music. So, they know the value of the original. Actually, the sound of duplications is like a nail on a chalkboard to my ear!
