20 films to watch on New Year’s Eve. There are Russians here too :)

I consider New Year’s holidays to be family time, so I try to spend them with my family and friends. On the 31st, we traditionally watch only the original “The irony of fate, or Enjoy your steam!” 1975 of the year. The rest of the time we spend without TV.

However, there is enough weekend after the New Year. There is also enough free time before the main holiday. Most of it usually goes to favorite themed films… I usually write a checklist so that I don’t forget the most important ones.

Here is my list for the winter of 2021–2022… There are both classics of the genre and interesting novelties of recent years. Add in the comments!

1. “Home Alone” (1990, 1992)

“KinoPoisk”: 8.2 (first part rating)
IMDb: 7.6

Of course, none of my New Year’s holidays can do without the “Home Alone” dilogy. Yes, we prefer to watch only films with Macaulay Culkin – we ignore the rest. I was especially amused by the “reissue” of the classics from 2021. Horror, and even the trailer.

A few words about the plot. The guy is regularly left alone at home. His abode is attacked by ill-wishers, and he successfully melts with them. All this is accompanied by festive decorations. In the second part, the events unfold in New York.

2. “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (2005)

“KinoPoisk”: 7.6
IMDb: 6.6

They say that in early 2023 Warner Bros. will re-release the picture with new main characters. There are doubts that it will turn out better than the film 20 years ago. However, if Willie is played by Tom Holland or Timothy Chalamet (as they promise), you will have to watch.

The plot revolves around a “factory” that produces the best chocolates in the world. But it is only a scenery against which the most obvious human vices are shown, as well as a few adequate personalities.

3. “Vacation on exchange” (2006)

“KinoPoisk”: 7.7
IMDb: 6.9

Another classic plot. A couple of main characters change lives. The first moves to the big city from the hinterland for the holidays, the second – on the contrary.

Both find people close in spirit and new meanings. All this in a festive atmosphere. The beauty.

4. “Silver Skates” (2020)

“KinoPoisk”: 7.3
IMDb: 7.1

The first film from Russia in this collection. Netflix owns the rights to it – the picture has become a domestic pioneer in the Originals category on this site. This is not surprising, because the movie is great. Feel free to go to the annual reheat.

The plot is set in 1899. In the background St. Petersburg and the frozen city canals. On the first – poor Matvey with old Dutch skates on his feet and Alice from a wealthy family. There is love between them, but the public is against it.

7. “Family for Rent” (1997)

“KinoPoisk”: 7.7
IMDb: 6.9

A film about human values. I really like how he shows them through the prism of financial well-being, as well as its absence.

When you think about it, it becomes clear that the main thing in life is balance, which is not so easy to keep.

8. “Frozen from Miami” (2009)

“KinoPoisk”: 6.2
IMDb: 5.6

I am surprised by the low rating of this picture, because it is really worthy of attention. The story is banal, but this is its beauty.

The big chef, played by Renée Zellweger, comes to the small town to close the factory. But it happens differently.

9. “Hello family!” (2005)

“KinoPoisk”: 6.9
IMDb: 6.3

Sarah Jessica Parker, who plays one of the main roles, did not like the future mother-in-law very much. However, she liked the groom’s brother.

Such is the New Year’s story, filled with funny and uncomfortable moments.

10. “The Family Man” (2000)

“KinoPoisk”: 7.7
IMDb: 6.8

Another film that talks about human values ​​following the example of “Rent a Family”. He forces you to ask yourself a logical question – which is more important: a happy family or a successful business.

As practice shows, the most important thing is balance.

11. “A Christmas Carol” (2009)

“KinoPoisk”: 7.7
IMDb: 6.8

The current version of the cartoon based on the classic story by Dickens. It’s the same Scrooge who hates joy and Christmas to boot.

The spirits of the past, present and future help him to change his attitude. And they succeed.

12. Miracle on 34th Street (1994)

“KinoPoisk”: 7.4
IMDb: 6.6

A remake of the timeless classic from 1947. The movie is really about Christmas miracles. It’s also about a little girl who doesn’t believe in Santa Claus until she meets the real one.

True, he does not inspire confidence in elders.

13. “Welcome, or No Neighbors No Entry” (2006)

“KinoPoisk”: 6.3
IMDb: 5.0

Probably the dumbest movie in this collection. But as a background it comes in perfectly. Can be used while slicing salads or any other pastime. However, some people look at it seriously.

The plot revolves around a couple of neighbors, one of whom is played by Danny DeVito. He is upset that his family’s home is not visible from space. That is why he decides to equip his abode with the maximum amount of New Year’s illumination.

14. “Christmas for two” (2019)

“KinoPoisk”: 6.8
IMDb: 6.5

For my taste, the best picture of Emilia Clarke so far. The film tells about a girl who got lost in life.

She finds meaning in a new acquaintance, but the story of communication with him unfolds in the most unexpected way.

15. Frozen (2013, 2019)

“KinoPoisk”: 7.8 (first part rating)
IMDb: 7.4

An interesting dilogy based on Andersen’s The Snow Queen. However, it has plenty of differences from the original story.

The princess is freezing everything around here, not the queen, and she is quite a positive character in the story in two parts.

16. The Polar Express (2004)

“KinoPoisk”: 7.2
IMDb: 6.6

An animated story based on the 30-year-old Ollsburg children’s book of the same name.

17. “Old New Year” (2011)

“KinoPoisk”: 6.9
IMDb: 5.7

Comedy anthology in the New Year format. It includes a huge number of intertwining stories that link the traditional raising of a luminous ball over Times Square in New York.

There is a place here for both an ordinary secretary and a producer.

18. The Grinch (2018)

“KinoPoisk”: 6.8
IMDb: 6.4

I personally like the 2018 animated film much more than the 2000 film. But the story is essentially the same.

On the outskirts of the village, a hermit with green wool traditionally lives, who wants to ruin the New Year’s holidays, but in the end becomes a good one.

19. “New Year’s tariff” (2008)

“KinoPoisk”: 7.1
IMDb: 6.3

One of the few domestic films that really deserves attention. The plot is very similar to the script of the 2006 film “The Lake House”.

The couple here likewise fall in love, despite the significant time difference.

20. “Harry Potter” (2001-2011)

“KinoPoisk”: 8.2 (first part rating)
IMDb: 7.6

Of course, the saga about Harry Potter and his friends regularly becomes the main cinematic event of the New Year holidays for me.

Yes, the magic epic is almost not connected with the winter holidays, but this does not prevent it from being firmly associated with the cherished time.
