The Knight Before Christmas – A perfect Sleeping Pill Before Christmas!

The Knight Before Christmas is the name on one of the many original Netflix productions coming at us before Christmas in 2019. I didn’t have high expectations before it all started, but somehow the movie managed to perform even worse than I expected!

I don’t care if a movie has a bad story as long as it sometimes manages to make me interested. I didn’t like Holiday in the Wild, but still, the animals were nice, and thus, I could quite easily watch the movie without getting too bored. But, The Knight Before Christmas didn’t manage to make me interested in any way. It was simply boring from the very first moment and it never managed to turn into an interesting movie.

Kristin Davis and Rob Lowe in Holiday in the Wild might be a stronger combo than Vanessa Hudgens and Josh Whitehouse in The Knight Before Christmas. I must admit, Vanessa Hudgens has fallen into the really bad B-category movies after her success with High School Musical. But, in her Netflix original movie last year named The Princess Switch, I actually had a good time (even though it was a movie with a low potential as well). So, this could have turned into a movie worth watching. However, it didn’t!

A great alternative to sleeping pills

When I started to watch The Knight Before Christmas, I had energy and looked forward to streaming it. But, it didn’t take many minutes before my eyes felt tempted to make it dark. I remained strong for 50 minutes, but then I simply fell asleep. However, my surroundings didn’t allow me to sleep for a long time, so I returned to the story after a few minutes. But, considering that things didn’t improve, I went back into sleeping mode again. Luckily, I woke up to see the happy ending, but for me, it was happy because it meant that I could brush my teeth and go to bed!

Vanessa Hudgens is cute in her role, but it doesn’t help this movie a second.

Where to watch The Knight Before Christmas?

You can watch the movie on Netflix in Canada, on Netflix in the United States, and on any other Netflix region worldwide. It is a Netflix original movie, meaning that it can be streamed on Netflix everywhere. It also means that you CANNOT stream it anywhere else. You will never find this movie on Amazon Prime, on HBO Now, or on Hulu. And I almost forget, you cannot find it on Disney+ either!

But, is it worth wasting your time on this movie? I would say no. But, if you are desperate for something that is supposed to be a romantic Christmas movie, this might be it. There are 100 times better Christmas movies on Netflix, so click the link to find out more about those.

Let me warn you… the movie only has a 5,5/10 score on IMDb, and that is terrible considering that this portal normally give grades about 6 to all movies.

The best Christmas movies on Netflix in 2019

Which are the ten movies I have selected? As I have already mentioned, The Holiday and Love Actually are among the movies. But, there are eight other movies as well and those are:

  • Christmas with the Kranks
  • Home Alone
  • Elf
  • While You Were Sleeping
  • Four Christmases
  • Office Christmas Party

Watch Holiday in the Wild on Netflix

Holiday in the Wild is the name of a brand new Netflix original Christmas movie that was released on the streaming service in November 2019. Do you wonder what it is like celebrating Christmas in the wild, in Zambia? Find out what happens as Kristin Davis and Rob Lowe meet up in the wild and if it is something you should watch or not.

Kristin Davis in Holiday in the Wild on Netflix
Kristin Davis in Holiday in the Wild on Netflix

Kristin Davis and Rob Lowe are quite big names in the movie industry. Rob Lowe is well known from his roles in Code Black, a CBS series, Parks and Recreation (an NBC series), and also for his roles in Californication and other series. Kristin Davis might be most famous as one of the ladies in Sex and New York, but my favorite movie with Kristin Davis is Couples Retreat, a hilarious movie that makes me laugh whenever I watch it.

So, there should be potential when Kristin Davis and Rob Lowe come together for this Christmas movie created for Netflix. Does it live up to its potential? I have recently written about the brand new Disney+ movie Noelle starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader, and it was a 100% boring experience. Is Holiday in the Wild doing better?

Holiday in the Wild – The extra plus

Holiday in the Wild is a standard story about a woman that is left by her husband. She is sad and ends up traveling alone to Africa instead of with her husband. What happens in Africa? She meets a handsome man working with elephants (Rob Lowe), and of course, feelings arise in both of them. The story is so basic that it is boring. But, there is a little plus to Holiday in the Wild that still makes it better than the boring Noelle. What is that plus? Elephants!

Holiday in the Wild is about persons working with protecting and helping elephants in the country of Zambia. As a result, we get to see beautiful elephants, both young and old, and we see people who fight for their survival. Even though it is just a movie, it is still a real problem and we get some insight into what their daily lives might be like. Besides watching the elephants, we also get to see some beautiful clips from Zambia itself, making this like a nature movie with a romantic story connected to it. That is the plus making Holiday in the Wild worth watching.

Don’t be fooled. The story is still very boring and plain, but the elephants make it worth the while.

So, if you want to get some Christmas spirit while watching a romantic love story unfold among the elephants in Zambia, Holiday in the Wild is worth the minutes spent streaming it on Netflix.

How to watch Holiday in the Wild online?

Since this is a Netflix original movie, you can stream it online for free with your Netflix subscription anywhere in the world. You don’t need to change your Netflix country by using a VPN, as this movie is available in all Netflix regions. There are other examples of content only available in a few regions, but luckily, Netflix’s original content is available on Netflix in every single country of the world (in which Netflix is available).

Have you sen Holiday in the Wild? How did you like the movie? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Watch A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding on Netflix

Netflix is doing their best at creating original Netflix productions that are suitable for Christmas. In 2017, they released A Christmas Prince, and in 2018, the follow-up movie was published on the streaming portal.

A Christmas prince on Netflix

In A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding, the story continues from the first movie. Amber is traveling to Aldovia to get ready for the fantastic royal wedding. But, things don’t go the way she has planned. First of all, she is totally shocked by all the protocol that is expected of her to follow, and suddenly, her entire life is controlled by the protocol. Amber doesn’t like this, and she hopes that at least her future husband will support her. But, life isn’t easy for Prince Richard who has to rule the kingdom. It is especially hard because of the financial trouble which makes everyone suffer. But, what is causing the trouble and how can they fix it? Amber would like to help Richard, but that isn’t exactly something people expect Amber to do!

Watch A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding on Netflix

You can watch this movie on Netflix all across the globe. Since it is a Netflix original production, you do not need to change your Netflix region nor anything else to watch it. Simply visit netflix.com, and you are ready to watch it.

But, is it worth watching? If you like the first movie, then you will probably enjoy this one as well. But, if you do not know anything about the story nor the movies, then you better be warned – this is a super-cliche movie, and it comes without big surprises, and it is a very B production. Netflix has managed to create a romantic Christmas story, but it can be seen from the second one that it is a cheap production, and it also becomes a very boring production. But, if you just really want to watch a Christmas movie, this might do the job for you.

Do you want to know more about the movie? Check the Vimeo review of the film beneath (containing lots of clips from the movie).

Coming to US Netflix in December 2018

December will be a fantastic month! Not only because of Christmas but because Netflix will serve us several movies that will be a real treat to watch. And if you haven’t checked it out yet, take a look at this video presenting the best Christmas movies on Netflix!

Three great Netflix originals coming to Netflix

But, what is coming to Netflix in December 2018 that makes me so happy? There are quite a lot of original movies coming that I am really enthusiastic about. Just consider the fact that Jennifer Aniston has the main role in the brand new Netflix original movie named Dumplin‘. She is the beautiful mother who has taken part in beauty contests everywhere. Her daughter, however, is the quite fat and not so nice girl living in the shadow of her mum. But, now she is ready to revolt!

Mowgli on Netflix in December 2018

Just as interesting is Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle. This is a fantastic try at telling the story of Mowgli, and the trailer looks really good. This could have been a fantastic movie made for cinemas, but instead, it is given to us for “free”, included in our Netflix subscription.

Bird Box is a third Netflix original movie coming to Netflix in December. This movie is starring Sandra Bullock, and it is not a typical light-weighted comedy, instead, it is a thriller. People are going crazy everywhere (check the trailer), but what is causing it? What can the people do to resist whatever is causing this in people?

Other movies worth noticing on Netflix in December 2018

December will be a spectacular month, but I got to say it was a giant surprise when I noticed the highest grossing movie in 2018 on the list of titles that will be added to Netflix in December 2018. Which movie is that? Avengers: Infinity War. From December 25th, you can stream this movie on Netflix in the USA and in Canada. That is a fantastic Christmas present from Netflix, and I am sure lots of people will enjoy it during the upcoming Christmas holiday.  But, let me warn you – if you watch it, you will for sure look forward to the upcoming Avengers movie which is set to be released in 2019 (sometime).

Netflix December 2018

Besides the Avengers movie, it is worth mentioning the arrival of The Theory of Everything, a fantastic movie telling the story of Stephen Hawking. I would also mention District 9, and if you are a Michael Jackson fan, then you should absolutely worth This Is It as it will come to Netflix in December 2018.

Is The Holiday Calendar worth watching?

Holiday CalendarThe Holiday Calendar is a brand new romantic Christmas movie from Netflix. In the movie, we meet Kat Graham in the role as Abby Sutton, Quincy Brown as Josh Barton, and Ron Jones as Gramps.

I do not really know these actors very well, with the exception of Ron Jones whom I remember well from his role in This Is Us as William. He did that role very well, and he is a solid character also in The Holiday Calendar.

But, there is a problem with The Holiday Calendar, and it is a serious one. Around Christmas, people buy products, just because they have to buy something. In the same way, people watch movies, just because they want something to watch. As a result, the quality doesn’t need to be so high, because people will watch it no matter what. And that is the feeling I had when I watched The Holiday Calendar on Netflix.

Predictable down to the smallest detail

From the first moment, the story is incredibly predictable, down to the smallest detail. I think Netflix should have done the job of at least bringing some excitement and surprises into the movie. It probably ain’t true, but when I have the feeling that I would have done a better job, then it has got to be bad!

The fact that The Holiday Calendar is so incredibly predictable makes it a suffering to watch. The magical calendar which Abby gets from her grandfather brings some magic into the movie, but it is suffocated by the boredom of everything else in the movie.

In other words, if you are  incredibly bored, this might give you a breath of fresh air. But, if you have something you should have done, do that instead. I would rather wash the toilet than watch this movie (once again).

What do you think about The Holiday Calendar?

You can watch The Holiday Calendar in all Netflix regions, as it is a Netflix original. You will also find it subtitles to a lot of languages, and even dubbed in quite a lot of regions. But, that doesn’t make the quality of the actual movie better.

I wish you all a great Christmas and if you want tips on which movies to watch on Netflix this Christmas, take a look at the following YouTube video.

 

What to watch on Netflix for Christmas 2018?

It is finally here, the Christmas season. All across Europe, the annual Christmas markets are about to open, and Christmas music is banging the loudspeaker in malls all across the world. But, what are you gonna watch on Netflix for Christmas in 2018? 

christmas on netflix in 2018

I have just made some hours of research looking for the best Christmas movies on Netflix at the moment. I wrote a similar article a few years ago, but since then the information is out of date, and new movies have been made. Well, not really – the best Christmas movies are the classics, those that just stays eternal, and you know there is no Christmas without them.

Take a look at my video presentation of the best Christmas movies on Netflix in 2018 beneath, and keep on reading more about the content of the video under the video.

The big Christmas classics on Netflix

I am not sure if they knew as they created these movies, but The Holiday and Love Actually have become some of the most important Christmas classics on the market. People watch these movies over and over again, and they are both funny, romantic, and quite harmless. You can watch both these movies on Netflix in the UK, so head over to UK Netflix if you want to watch these.

If you are tired of all these romantic movies about Christmas, why not celebrate Christmas with John McClane as you watch Die Hard on Netflix? It might not be the favorite Christmas movie of the entire family, but the guys might easily prefer this to Love Actually or The Holiday.

Watch Die Hard for Christmas on Netflix in 2018
Have you considered celebrating Christmas with John McClane?

Netflix produces new original Christmas content every year for Christmas. This year they have several movies, but they look quite bad, with the exception of the Christmas Calendar. That might actually be a movie with some real Christmas magic, so I might end up watching that during the holiday season in 2018. Since it is a Netflix original, you can watch it in all Netflix regions.

If you look for another Christmas movie to watch on Netflix in 2018, you could consider Loving the Coopers, Four Christmases, or A Christmas Carol. These are all family movies, but the latter is even suitable for kids above 10 years of age.

Last, but not least, let us not forget about Kevin who is left Home Alone for Christmas. This is absolutely a Christmas classic, and the younger generation loves to watch this movie.

Where can you watch all these movies on Netflix? Watch the video above to see short trailers and to find information about where you can stream all these movies on Netflix. For information on how you can access the mentioned Netflix regions at your present location, read around at netflix.fromabroad.org.

What is your favorite Christmas movie on Netflix?

Do you have a favorite Christmas movie on Netflix? Which movie is that, and where can you stream it? Or, do you have a favorite Christmas movie that you cannot find on Netflix? Which movie is that?

I would love to hear your thoughts! Merry Christmas to all of you!

Are you ready for Christmas?

Christmas is getting closer, which means that people will start looking for Christmas content to stream on Netflix. Are you in the Christmas mood already? What will you stream on Netflix this Christmas?

I have written articles earlier years about the best Christmas movies available on Netflix. I will probably do so this year as well, but I am far from being in a Christmas mood at the moment, making it very hard to start looking for Christmas movies on Netflix. But, it is getting closer, and with Christmas markets opening all across Europe in the coming weeks, I guess the Christmas atmosphere will enter into my soul as well.

Handmaids tale
Currently I am streaming A Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu

Until then, I guess I will have to stream some other great Netflix content. Lots of people are happy about the new season of Stranger Things. I am not a fan of Stranger Things myself, but since people love it so much, I guess I might want to stream an episode or two sometime soon.

The truth is, at the moment I am watching The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu instead. I skipped this TV series when it was first released, but has since then heard so many recommendations, which I decided to watch it. So far I have only streamed the first two episodes of the first season, but I am headed in the right direction. But, what am I going to stream once I have finished the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale? I do not know yet, but maybe Vikings, another series someone recommended me.

What about Vikings?

The great thing about Vikings is that it can be streamed in my Netflix region. I do not even need to change my Netflix region using a VPN, so easy! In an ideal world, all content would be available in all Netflix regions everywhere, but that seems to be very far away from reality at the very moment.

The best Christmas movies on US Netflix [2016]

Christmas is soon here and you are desperate to get in the right Christmas mood. Why not watch a Christmas movie on US Netflix? Which movie to choose?

I wrote an article back in 2015 presenting the best Christmas movies on Netflix then. Since that article was written a lot of things have changed. Most importantly it has become much harder to change your Netflix region, meaning that you will probably just watch in the Netflix region you are currently in. And, which Netflix region is the most popular with most subscribers? US Netflix! So, here comes the list presenting the best Christmas movies on US Netflix in 2016.

best-christmas-movies-on-us-netflix-in-2016
Here I give you the best five Christmas movies on US Netflix in 2016

Best Christmas movies on US Netflix in 2016

A Very Murray Christmas

What will Christmas be like and the great Christmas show by Bill Murray when all airports are closed, electricity is gone and everything seems to fail? That is the story in this Netflix movie which first aired in December 2015.  This might become a new Christmas classic.

Son of God

What is Christmas all about? Would you like to get some more insight in the original Christmas story? Watch the big production named Son of God in which you can follow Jesus Christ during his time here on earth. This might not be the comedy you are looking for, but if you want real Christmas coming into your home, then this is all about it!

Christmas With The Kranks

This ain’t a favorite of mine, but it still is about Christmas and it can still be fun to watch on US Netflix. For the first time the Kranks have decided to skip Christmas and instead travel abroad to celebrate Christmas in the sun. That is a disaster as they live in a street with long Christmas traditions. But, suddenly everything changes and they have to spend Christmas at home instead.

While You Were Sleeping

A guy gets hit and wakes up without remembering to much. Sandra Bullock works in a hospital, but suddenly the family of the guy believes Sandra Bullock to be the fiance of the guy not remembering anything. This is a nice combination of a nice story and a very romantic story, all taking place during Christmas.

Love Actually

This has become the ultimate Christmas movie in lots of homes all around the globe. This is a superstar movie with tons of stars which actually turned into a success. Here we follow lots of different stories which somehow are connected still. The movie is packed with love, it is packed with Christmas and it is one of the movies you just have to watch for Christmas.

I want more Christmas movies on Netflix

So do I, but unfortunately there are few good Christmas movies on US Netflix. The movie I miss the most is The Holiday, but that can only be seen in a few Netflix regions (and US Netflix is not one of those). You can do a search on Netflix.com for Christmas and you will see a few more movies showing up, but they are mostly terrible or even worse than terrible, and that is why I did not include them on this list.

If you have other suggestions or recommendations, please write them down in the comment field beneath.

Enjoy a nice Fireplace on Netflix

Not long ago Netflix launched Jessica Jones and also released the Ridiculous 6 on Netflix. Now they launched another great film, the Fireplace! What is this about? It is a simple movie lasting a bit more than one hour, and during that one hour you will watch a live fireplace with real crackling sounds.

It is very nice to take a look at this meaning that even if you live in the smallest flat somewhere without a real fireplace, you can still log on to Netflix and watch  a real fireplace with real crackling sounds. It is available in all Netflix regions and you can even choose if you want to watch the fireplace with Christmas music included, or if you only want to enjoy the crackling sounds.

Fire on Netflix

There are several fireplace versions available and my favorite is probably the fireplace with birchwood and all its crackling sounds.

I wish you all a merry Christmas and if you want to some advises for Christmas films to watch on Netflix then I recommend that you read my following article on that subject!
