Nowadays, the holidays can feel like a time of stress rather than a time of festivities − whether from the gift-buying rush, surviving family get-togethers, or paying off those rising bills. But once upon a time, back in those childhood days, it really was the most magical time of the year. Unfortunately, you can’t travel back in time…. But you can hit record and rewind. Here’s our favorite list of movies to watch and record throughout the holiday season.
A Charlie Brown Christmas and A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
A ruckus was created earlier in the year when it was announced that none of the Charlie Brown holiday specials would be airing on network television, after ABC pulled the plug on a 55-year streak. But where there’s a network void, there’s a streaming network ready to bridge the gap. Apple+ pledged to to fulfill Snoopy deprivation by making each holiday special available for free, even to non-subscribers, on limited days. So all the Peanuts holiday specials are at the top of our watch and record holiday movie list.
Gen Z-ers only seem to vaguely know who the Muppets are but for Millennials and Generation X, they were everything. Literally, they did everything from take Manhattan, live in Space, and in The Muppet Christmas Carol, recreate Dickens’ classic. It holds up, seriously. Press record and watch it again to see.
A Christmas Story should not make this list as TBS’ 24 hour tradition of airing the movie continuously makes it sort of unnecessary, yet, it still does because even with a 24 hour airing, we know opening presents, sledding, cooking holiday dinner, etc. might have you missing major scenes. And no one wants to miss their favorite from this classic, whether it’s electric sex from the leg lamp in the window, or when Ralphie finally does shoot his eye out!
Ok, while Love, Actually isn’t as childlike as our other selections, it was released a full 17 years ago! For everyone who was still a teen or tween when this movie came out, it gave you high hopes for what Christmas could be like when falling in love as a grown up. Love, Actually was so universally well received, it’s now a modern classic and maybe remains the heavyweight champion in holiday rom-coms.

In this classic, late 90s Tom Hanks / Meg Ryan romcom, You’ve Got Mail gives us the story of two people in an online romance — AOL, anyone? — who are unaware they are also business rivals. Watch as they cross paths in reality, and share a completely different relationship over email. This movie was the third pairing of Hanks and Ryan, following Joe Versus the Volcano (1990) and Sleepless in Seattle (1993). While You’ve Got Mail isn’t an Oscar-worthy flick, it’s definitely a feel-good movie we can all appreciate!
John Candy and Steve Martin together on-screen? Thanksgiving movies just don’t get any better than this. In Planes, Trains, and Automobiles Candy and Martin make an unlikely pair of travel companions trying to get home for Thanksgiving. Follow along on their hilarious adventure.
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving originally aired in November 1973, and actually won an Emmy award the following year! Until 2019, the special continued to be aired on prime time television on the ABC network. Now, you can catch it on Apple TV for a short period of time, or whenever suits you best on Amazon Prime. When Peppermint Patty invites herself and her friends over to Charlie Brown’s for Thanksgiving, along with Linus, Snoopy, and Woodstock in the mix, Charlie Brown attempts to host a successful Thanksgiving dinner. Will it go off without a hitch? This family-favorite will be sure to put a smile on your face.
The New World stars Colin Farrell as Captain John Smith, Q’orianka Kilcher as Pochantos and Christian Bale as John Rolfe, a British settler, bringing the previously only animated story of Pochantos to life. Captain John Smith arrives with a British expedition in Virginia in 1607, but is captured by Native Americans. His life is spared thanks to Pocahontas, the daughter of the tribe’s chief. Smith and Pocahontas fall in love, to the strong disapproval of both the Native Americans and British. As a result, Smith is sent away and reported dead. A heartbroken Pocahontas marries Rolfe, but when Smith turns up alive, she is torn between the two men.
Many of us can relate to Meet the Parents — after all, holidays are often a perfect opportunity to meet the family of a significant other. At least most of us can say that we haven’t endured the shenanigans and mishaps that Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) has to when meeting his girlfriend’s parents — starring Robert DeNiro and Blythe Danner. Focker’s first visit to Pam’s parents’ house turns out to be a complete nightmare — more than he could have ever imagined. Hoping to use the weekend as a chance to propose to his girlfriend in front of family, he only succeeds in getting on his prospective father-in-law’s bad side and almost destroys their home in the process — yikes!

Hocus Pocus is a must-see, Halloween classic, starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy. The Sanderson sisters (Midler, Parker and Najimy) were executed 300 years ago for practicing dark witchcraft, but now, they’ve returned. Thanks to a combination of a spell spoken before their demise and the accidental actions of the new-kid-in-town, Max, the sisters will do whatever it takes to secure their continuing existence. The only trouble is they have just one night to do it…
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a cult-classic that draws fans to movie theatres every Halloween to relive the time warp, again and again. Sweethearts Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon), end up stuck with a flat tire during a storm, leading them to discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite scientist. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of peculiar characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler. With the help of elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky.”
The IT movie is based on Stephen King’s 1986 novel of the same name. Both the original and 2017 remake follow seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, who are about to face their worst nightmare — an ancient, haunting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town’s children. Pledging to band together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to defeat the murderous, bloodthirsty clown, otherwise known as Pennywise.
The Exorcism of Emily Rose is loosely based on the true story of Anneliese Michel, who, it is believed was possessed by demons, and underwent Catholic exorcism rites during the year leading up to her death. In the movie, Rev. Moore is prosecuted for the wrongful death of a girl believed to be demonically possessed, because he administered the church-sanctioned exorcism that ultimately killed her. Watch as prosecuting attorney Ethan Thomas fights to prove that Emily actually suffered from schizophrenia and should have been medically diagnosed, while the defense maintains Emily’s condition cannot be explained by science alone.
After their fatal car accident, the spirits of Barbara and Adam are stuck haunting their country residence, unable to leave the house. When the unbearable Deetzes (Catherine O’Hara and Jeffrey Jones), and their teen daughter (Winona Ryder) buy the home, the Maitlands unsuccessfully attempt to scare them away. Instead, their efforts attract Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton), a rowdy spirit whose “help” quickly spells trouble for the Maitlands and Lydia.
If you’re looking for a family-friendly Halloween movie, look no further than this Tim Burton animated classic. The Nightmare Before Christmas follows the adventures of Jack Skellington, Halloweentown’s beloved pumpkin king. Bored with the same annual routine of frightening people in the “real world,” Jack accidentally stumbles on Christmastown — a stark contrast to Halloweentown. Bright colors and warm spirits, Jack gets a new lease on life, and plots to bring Christmas under his control by kidnapping Santa Claus and taking over the job. Jack soon discovers though, that even the best-laid plans don’t always turn out…
This 2003 remake of the horror classic follows a group of young travelers who come across an isolated rural home while driving through Texas on their way back from Mexico. Unfortunately for them, the dilapidated house is actually the residence of a family of twisted backwoods killers, most notably a merciless, masked man known as Leatherface, who begins to hunt the stranded youths down. Whether any of the friends will survive their nightmare is yet to be determined…

Drinking yak blood, eating a moose heart, and sleeping inside a camel… Think you could survive out in the wild? Maybe not… But you can watch all of Bear Grylls’ amazing wilderness feats from the safety of your sofa as he shows you how to survive when stranded in the world’s harshest environments. Brace yourself for edge-of-your-seat action in this series packed full of fascinating tips and stunning landscapes. It’s exhilarating, and educational, all at the same time.
Expect beautiful costumes, very “proper” British accents and some incredible scenery in this TV adaptation of E.M. Forster’s Howards End. Follow the Schlegel sisters as they embark on their journey to seek love and meaning in a world that clashes with their independent and unconventional sensibilities. It’s a period drama that packs a punch, and will quickly have you hooked.
This timeless British comedy series has been a favorite for generations, and for good reason. The show follows the trials, and more often than not, failures of Edmund Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson), a plotting and scheming character looking to do whatever it takes to secure an easy-going life for himself. Each season finds Blackadder and his useless sidekick Baldrick in a different time period, with a different boss and different challenges, but the same old disappointing results. Also starring Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry, Blackadder is an age-old, laugh-a-minute series that’s not to be missed.
Nothing gets more British than a dark and stormy hillside, and Wuthering Heights is full of them. Starring Kaya Scodelario and directed by Andrea Arnold (of American Honey and Fish Tank), this is an exciting and fresh take on the classic novel by Emily Brontë. Get ready for brooding stares, wind-whipped landscapes and tension you could cut with a knife in this superb British adaptation of the all-time favorite book.
If we ever needed a reminder not to accept a ride from a stranger, then this should do the trick. Under the Skin stars an English-accented Scarlett Johanssen as the creepy, murderous, van-driving alien (yep, you heard that right) who preys on the unsuspecting men of Glasgow — picking them up, and leaving them never to be seen again. With striking and shocking imagery from director Jonathan Glazer, this movie offers a mind-bending experience that leaves you tip-toeing between the unwaveringly mundane of drizzly Glasgow, and the fantasy of Johanssen’s otherworldly underworld. You’ll leave this movie full of questions, but that’s all part of the fun.
Directed by Ken Loach, this Cannes and BAFTA winner tells the story of a widowed carpenter and a single mother who form a formidable bond in their struggle against the complicated and unforgiving British welfare system. Chronicling the reality of daily life for many working-class Brits just struggling to get by, I, Daniel Blake treats its characters with warmth and humanity, when the system treats them as nothing more than a number. It’s a heartwrencher and an eye-opener that will be sure to stick with you.
Nicholas Hoult stars as J.R.R. Tolkien, the incredible author behind the The Lord of the Rings series, in this biopic that covers Tolkien’s early life, career at Oxford University, and the friendships and relationships that defined him. Directed by Dome Karukoski and also starring Lily Collins, it’s a beautifully-shot movie that also takes us up to the outbreak of the First World War and the life-changing events that would inspire his famous Middle-earth novels. This one’s a must-watch for movie-lovers and literature-enthusiasts alike.
Acting heavyweights Anthony Hopkins, Emma Thompson and Emily Watson are unstoppable forces in this modern-day adaptation of William Shakespeare’s King Lear. With the play (thankfully) cut down to a more manageable 2 hours, this is Shakespeare not as you know it: think martial arts, helicopters and British military uniforms, to name a few. Plus, with a star turn for Florence Pugh, there’s more than enough acting mastery for you to enjoy on screen. Don’t miss it.

The 92nd Academy Awards have come and gone, and with them, brought an offering of some incredible movies from 2019.
From epic speeches, to history-making wins, it was a cinematic year not to be missed. And while there was a host of excellent nominees for “Best Picture”, as always, only one could take home the golden statue.
Whether you saw those movies in theaters, or if you managed to catch them on Netflix, there were quite a few strong contenders this year in the “Best Picture” category, and the time has finally come to recognize our favorites from this Oscar season.
If you haven’t had the chance to catch all of the nominees, we’ve got you covered. We’ve put together a list of all the Best Picture nominees, so you can capture them, watch them and be ready to discuss the highlights with your friends in the Oscars’ aftermath. With Replay Video Capture, you won’t have to miss out on any of the year’s best movies.
Cheesy teleprompter intro aside, the nominees for Best Picture are…
In this heart-wrenching look at separation and divorce, an all-star cast leads this incredible and moving story of a family trying to find a path forward while at the same time, confronting the reality that their marriage is over. With Scarlet Johansson and Adam Driver nominated for Best Actress and Best Actor, respectively, you can expect A Marriage Storyto pull at your heartstrings and raise thought-provoking discussions about marriage and divorce..
In this coming-of-age film directed by Taika Waititi, a young boy struggles to find his voice in Nazi Germany. Jojo, the titular character, is faced with an internal conflict as he tries to find his place as a cadet in the Hitler Youth organization, after learning that his mother is harboring a young Jewish girl in their attic. What makes this satirical coming-of-age comedy unique is Jojo’s imaginary friend who bears witness to Jojo’s life lessons through it all — Adolf Hitler himself.
In one of the most brilliant and disturbing films of the last year, Todd Phillips’ Jokeris a study of the motivations that ultimately lead the titular character, Arthur Fleck, into villainy. Bleek and spellbinding, the movie takes a voyage into the well-known Batman story and flips it inside out. Joaquin Phoenix’s performance earns him a well-deserved Oscar in this never-before-told origin story of Joker that is not for the faint of heart.
In a wartime epic that cleaned up at the Golden Globes, Sam Mendes’ 1917 is a tale of bravery and sacrifice that is rumored to have been inspired by war tales of the director’s own grandfather. Not just simply another depiction of World War I, the film follows two British soldiers who receive time-sensitive and seemingly impossible orders. They must cross into enemy territory in order to deliver a message that could potentially save the countless lives of their fellow comrades, including the brother of one of the soldiers. If not for the story, 1917 is worth watching for the cinematography alone, as it was shot unconventionally with a series of continuous, uncut shots that were then uniquely connected to give the feeling of one long take.
Ford v Ferrari is the incredible true-life story between two friends, American automotive designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and former British race car driver, Ken Miles (Christian Bale), who take on Ford’s rival Enzo Ferrari with their revolutionary vehicle in the race of their lives at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966. The film is a perfect mix of sport, humor and drama for racing enthusiasts and not only.
In Martin Scorsese’s turn at producing and directing a Netflix original, we get a crime drama to end all crime dramas. Starring Robert DeNiro (Frank Sheeran), Joe Pesci (Russell Bufalino) and Al Pacino (Jimmy Hoffa), the movie is an epic story of organized crime in post-war America as told through the eyes of Sheeran, a World War II veteran. The Irishman chronicles the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, while offering an enlightening journey through the hidden world of organized crime.
Bong Joon-ho’s Parasitewas a mover and shaker at this year’s Academy Awards; the film took home the most awards, including Best Picture, making it the first time ever that a foreign language film has won the category. Offering dark humor, drama and countless edge-of-your-seat moments, the film is a depiction of greed and class discrimination, and how this unfortunate societal reality threatens the newly formed relationship between the privileged Park family and that of the poor Kims.
Quentin Tarantino’s controversial ninth film stars, most notably, Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role of Hollywood actor Rick Dalton, Brad Pitt as Cliff Booth, Dalton’s best friend and stuntman, and Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate. The film follows Dalton and Booth as they struggle to stay relevant and active in the Hollywood scene and as a surprise, touches on the unfortunate story of the Charles Manson cult and the murder of Sharon Tate. For those who have missed a good story with the classic gory twist of Tarantino, topped off with a star-studded cast: this one’s for you.
The movie Little Women is based on the beautiful tale of four sisters in the post-Civil War era in the United States, penned by Louisa May Alcott. The March sisters include Jo, Amy, Meg and Beth. Jo is a writer living in New York. Amy studies painting in Paris and has a fortuitous meeting with a childhood crush who proposed to her sister Jo but was ultimately turned down. Meg is married, while Beth develops a critical illness that brings the family together again.

Sometimes the truth can be more frightening than fiction.
If you’ve seen enough scary movies, it can sometimes be easy to forget that some of the scariest, most fascinating stories aren’t made for the movies… They actually take place in real life. But that doesn’t mean you can’t watch them. In fact, there are a lot of documentaries and series out there that tell the stories of true crimes so unimaginable, you would have to see them to believe them.
Online streaming giants Netflix and Amazon Prime Video offer up their fair share of creepy content; from the most unsettling and disturbing creature features of neglect, to some of the most vile acts of the human psyche. If you are a true crime connoisseur, then you definitely won’t want to miss the chance to capture the most shocking documentaries and series to watch again and dissect with friends.
To usher in what’s arguably the creepiest month of the year, we’ve collected some of the scariest documentaries and series streaming online now. Whether you’re up for true crime documentaries that defy belief, or just downright skin-crawling cases that will keep you up at night, we’ve put together the perfect list of creepy documentaries that will make you shiver… And not just from the colder weather that’s rapidly approaching.
Some of our most frightening picks that are streaming online now?
When children in the English city of Manchester started disappearing in the mid-1960s, hardly anyone could believe that couple Ian Brady and Myrna Hindly could be behind such acts of depravity. When residents began to learn the fate of the missing children and teens, the whole country was held captive of their own disbelief. In a dramatized documentary that is sure to shock you, the events are retold in shocking detail. Not to be missed.
In this uber-popular series from Netflix, this documentary follows the as yet unsolved murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik, a popular nun and teacher at Archbishop Keough Catholic school. As if the crime wasn’t horrifying enough, the speculation behind Sister Cathy’s murder will shock you. She may have been a target for the ultimate sinister motive: She was on the verge of exposing a possible sex-crime ring within the Catholic church. A must-watch selection that will have you questioning everything you believe in.
In a series that has you second-guessing if such occurrences could happen in real life (Yes, they can), “Evil Genius” recounts the bizarre events that began with a pizza delivery man holding up a bank, eventually leading to him exploding in police custody as a collar bomb detonates, leaving investigators searching for answers. A grisly crime that should be enough to create its own series is only the beginning here. What looked initially like a bank heist gone wrong suddenly takes twists and turns as the plot thickens and involves more and more complex suspects. Was he a criminal or actually a hostage? Make sure to check out this limited series with an explosive payoff as the real mastermind is revealed.
From our earliest fears of The BoogeyMan, we are often calmed by the assurance that he doesn’t actually exist. But what if it turns out that those fears are absolutely true? In this documentary, filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio go back to their hometown to investigate the mysteries surrounding the most notorious urban legend of their youth — only to discover that the torturer and murderer of local children really was just as frighteningly real as they had always suspected.
In a documentary that isn’t as much about crime as it is a macabre nightmarescape, this made the list because it is guaranteed to keep you up at night. Legendary documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock ventures into rat-infested areas around the world, investigating the horrifying origins of infestations as well as the dubious practices employed to rid the heaving swarms of vermin by any means necessary. In what has been called a “documentary horror film”, this isn’t for the faint of heart.
Because no one can really get enough of urban legends, this creepy doc takes a look at some of the childhood tales of terror we’ve become so familiar with and examines their origins — some of which might completely shock you. Get ready to have your childhood beliefs turned upside down, in the creepiest possible ways.
The story of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy has enjoyed a resurgence of popularity recently, and with good reason… It is nearly impossible for most of us to consider how the mind of a serial killer works, especially when the grisliest acts imaginable come from where you least suspect them. This docu-series takes us even deeper into the mind and motivations of Ted Bundy by offering up footage of interviews with the people in Bundy’s life who knew him best, including the killer himself.
In the beginning, don’t all of our motivations come from a good place? When modern guru Bhagvan Shree sets up a colony for his followers in rural Oregon, his original aim was to build a community of worship. As with all our best laid plans, when the colony found themselves facing persecution from the local community, efforts to protect the colony descend into cult-like chaos at a national level. In a truly wild documentary, this insanely popular series takes you on the mind-bending ride of a lifetime. You won’t want to miss a single second.

While it steadily builds up a stronger catalog (which luckily has access to the backlog of HBO original content), what really sets Amazon Prime Video up as a fierce contender in the online video streaming universe is it’s growing list of award-winning original titles. In fact, we’ll bet that some of the hottest shows of the moment that all your friends are watching are headlining right now on Amazon Prime Video.

In arguably one of the most popular titles on our list, this award-winning stunner stars breakout star Rachel Brosnahan playing the titular Midge Maisel.
