Thinking what to do this New Year Eve, don’t worry we got you covered!!
Now that the time of New Year Celebrations is upon us, many of us are still scratching our heads over what exactly to do during the New Year Holidays. Some of the lucky souls may have a trip planned out or tickets to the most-happening party of the town but what about those who have no plans (just like this writer) and simply want to enjoy the warmth of their blankets, sipping hot coffee and binge-watching their favorite TV shows and movies.
The New Year’s time is one of the most celebrated occasions in the movies and a majority of them send the message of starting your year the right way with all the positive energy and vibes colliding with the jovial atmosphere. So, in case you fall into the latter category, here are 10 Hollywood movies you can binge watch if you don’t have any New Year plans:
When Harry Met Sally: Arguably the greatest romantic comedy of all time, the film focuses on 2 characters who meet and drift apart over a period of 12 years while dealing with the age-old question, “can a man and a woman just be friends?”
Bridget Jones’s Diary: Another great romantic comedy that benefits greatly from charming performances by the 3 leads, Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant. The film starts and ends on New Year’s Eve and ends with an amazing kiss.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: The film that established one of the most successful film franchises of all time and made ‘muggles’ aware about the existence of a magical world and popularized terms like Galleon, Wingardium Leviosa, and Quidditch.
Home Alone: We get it, it’s a Christmas movie. But what’s the fun of Holidays if you don’t re-watch one of the best Holiday films of all time and celebrate the New Year with all the right spirits.
This is the End: Probably not the right way to ring in the New Year but this Seth Rogen-James Franco starrer is a must watch. The film pokes fun at the celebrity culture, doomsday predictions and is one of the best comedies of recent times.
Love Actually: One of the best ensemble films of all time and probably one of the most watched films during the Holidays, the film has 10 short stories which interlink with each other and has something for everyone.
About A Boy: Hugh Grant’s best performance to date has him playing a spoiled rich man who attends support group meetings in order to meet vulnerable and needy women. He develops a deep friendship with a 12-year-old boy Marcus and the film focuses on their relationship.
Ocean’s Eleven: George Clooney stars as the master-thief Danny Ocean who recruits 11 capable people to carry out one impossible heist. The film is full of comedy, suspense and great rapport between the cast.
Groundhog Day: One of the most beloved films of all time, the film focuses on Bill Murray’s arrogant TV weatherman Phil Connors who finds himself living the same day over and over again.
The Holiday: The romantic comedy has a dream cast in Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and Jack Black. It focuses on 2 women who decide to exchange their homes after a bitter heartbreak during the Holiday season.
