I’m honoured to announce the news that I was recently asked by those awesome guys over at GiftAlien about what my Alternative Christmas Movies would be, so I delved through the movie wall here at Blazing Minds HQ and picked out 5 of my all time favourites.
After we let them know, the guys have put together an exclusive Blazing Minds movie pack for movie fans to enjoy this Christmas or any other time of the year that you enjoy watching movies.
Sometimes you want something a little different from the Christmas movies that we are all used to seeing, this exclusive Blazing Minds pack available from GiftAlien is ideal for an Alternative to those usual Christmas movies.
Alternative Christmas Movie Night with GiftAlien and Blazing Minds
5 Alternative movies to enjoy over Christmas.
- The Nightmare Before Christmas
An all-time favourite of mine and it’s Tim Burton movie that I can watch over and over again. Bored with his Halloween routine, Jack Skellington longs to spread Christmas joy, but his antics put Santa and the holiday in jeopardy!
- Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale
If you really want something different, maybe a little bit of a horror Christmas then this is brilliant. In the depths of the Korvatunturi mountains, 486 metres deep, lies the closest ever guarded secret of Christmas. The time has come to dig it up! This Christmas everyone will believe in Santa Claus.
- Die Hard
Is it a Christmas movie or isn’t it? A debate that has raged on for years since the film’s release, my argument is it’s based at Christmas time! New York City policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) is visiting his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia) and two daughters on Christmas Eve. He joins her at a holiday party in the headquarters of the Japanese-owned business she works for. But the festivities are interrupted by a group of terrorists
A retelling of “A Christmas Carol” 80s style with the brilliant Bill Murray as Frank Cross who is a wildly successful television executive whose cold ambition and curmudgeonly nature has driven away the love of his life, Claire Phillips (Karen Allen). Enter the three ghosts to put everything right.
- Bad Santa
Could Christmas get any worse? Well for one guy it could! In this dark comedy, the crotchety Willie T. Stokes (Billy Bob Thornton) and his partner (Tony Cox) reunite once a year for a holiday con. Posing as a mall Santa and his elf, they rip off shopping outlets on Christmas Eve. This year, however, Willie is falling apart. He’s depressed and alcoholic, and his erratic behaviour draws the suspicion of mall security (Bernie Mac). But when befriending a small boy brings out his kinder side, Willie begins to wonder if there is still some hope for him.
