The American television channel Fox News in part of Christmas on the Gregorian calendar has compiled a list of the best films of all time to watch during the New Year holidays.
So, to cheer up Fox News recommended watching the animated film “A Christmas Carol” (2009) by Robert Zemeckis, which tells about the banker and curmudgeon Ebenezer Scrooge, who denies Christmas and other holidays.
“Through countless adaptations of the classics of Charles Dickens, viewers can see how Scrooge from a greedy curmudgeon turns into a kind and caring person,” assures the channel.
Charlie Brown’s Christmas (1965) tells the story of a hero who tries to discover the true meaning of Christmas, despite the fact that the holiday is closely associated with commerce and marketing. Charlie Brown has become one of the most recognizable characters in the entertainment industry, journalists are sure.
Another Fox News recommendation was Santa Claus (1994). Hollywood actor Tim Allen plays the main role in it. During the Christmas holidays, the character almost scared Santa Claus to death and was forced to deliver gifts instead, and his son became Santa’s assistant.
What could be better than a fairy tale about love, they ask a question on the channel and offer to “feel the festive mood” together with the heroes of “Real Love” (2003). The film features actors such as Keira Knightley, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.
“The Grinch Stole Christmas,” according to Fox News, brings a ton of fun thanks to the voice acting of actor Jim Carrey. His hero in a green hairy suit steals gifts, food, jewelry and much more from the inhabitants of Ktograd until his heart grows three sizes and he learns to love.
Kevin McCallister’s pranks from Home Alone have been a major Christmas component since the movie’s 1990 release. Almost 30 years later, the film remains popular with viewers, according to Fox News.
On December 25, it became known that the Netflix streaming platform will release the Hollywood version of the film “Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath!” directed by Marius Weisberg. The role of Lukashin in it will be performed by the actor Thomas Mann, known from the TV series “Fargo”. Unlike the Soviet version, the American hero is only 30 years old in the story, not 40 years old.
The female lead starred Emma Roberts, while the character of Hippolytus in the Netflix project was embodied by the British actor of Chinese descent Lewis Tan.
