Top Five Holiday Flix to Watch This Year

Nothing beats a warm blanket, hot cocoa, and loved ones enjoying the holidays together. If one runs out of memories to laugh about and the old VHS won’t play the video of Christmas karaoke night from 1983, the following holiday movies will suffice as another great memory to share.

A Diva’s Christmas Carol 

Holiday Flix to Watch This Year

This feature film tells the timeless story of Ebenezer Scrooge but in stilettos. Vanessa L. Williams plays her role to perfection as an “ego-driven” megastar who has no time for the holiday spirit. Her character, Ebony Scrooge, has turned a blind eye to the real meaning of the holidays, but glamorous ghosts from Christmas past put her in check. Main cast members include Rozonda Thomas, also known as Chilli from TLC, and iconic comedian, Kathy Griffin.


Friday After Next

Holiday Flix to Watch This Year

The extremely comical Friday saga produced by Cubevision knocked down two birds with one stone with Friday After Next. All the usual suspects were present, but new faces were introduced like Katt Williams, who played an unforgettable role as Money Mike.

Friday After Next carries many different genres, all wrapped in one. But somehow, through the comedic tale of Craig (Ice Cube) and Day-Day (Mike Epps), there is a bit of Christmas cheer that faces the inevitable doom from Santa himself. 


This Christmas

If one wants to visit the cutest version of Chris Brown while cozying up by the fire, tune into This Christmas. He plays an angsty teenager with his heart set on singing. This Christmas is a classic film that brings in the warmth of a family, with a dash of drama to spice it up between eggnog sips. 

Ma’Dere Whitfield (Loretta Devine) calls her tribe together, bringing family members in close proximity. It starts off in the name of good cheer but carries hints of dreadful fears–of what might be uncovered…this Christmas. 


The Wiz

Watching The Wiz is a holiday right of passage. Everyone from all walks of life will ease down the road and into the spirit of connecting family throughout generations. This feature film follows the legendary Diana Ross on one of the craziest adventures that include a whole dancing moment by another music icon, Michael Jackson. The songs and the star-studded cast will have the entire family dancing around the house.  


The Best Man Holiday

The adored college quartet of friends brings in the holidays together in The Best Man Holiday. Lance ( Morris Chestnut) joins Harper (Taye Diggs), Candace (Regina Hall), Quentin (Terrence Howard), Robyn (Sanaa Lathan), Jordan (Nia Long), Murch (Harold Perrineau), And Mia (Monica Calhoun) for holiday festivities.

Although the beloved college days are long gone, the gang gets back together to bring in the holiday joy and rekindle passionate old flames. Laugh, cry, and feel the warmth of the holidays with the college group that’s 15 years strong.
