Ya viene Navidad y con ella los recuerdos de un año lleno de experiencias que queremos compartir con la gente que tanto queremos. Por eso hoy te recomendamos 10 películas clásicas que vemos en estas fechas y algunas más contemporáneas que empiezan a ganarse su lugar en nuestro corazón.

1. Realmente amor (Love Actually)

Disponible en Amazon Prime Video

Este película es mi favorita y todos los años la tengo que volver a ver durante esta temporada. El amor está en todas partes y más cuando la Navidad está cerca. De eso se trata ‘Realmente amor’ y aunque ya hayan pasado 16 años desde su estreno, aún nos sigue encantado la historia clásica que interpretan Hugh Grant, Laura Linney, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson y Emma Thompson, entre otros. ¿Qué tal la escena del final con la canción clásica de Mariah Carey “All I want for Christmas is you”? Una excelente opción para llorar, reír y soñar con un amor.

2. Klaus

Disponible en Netflix

La primera película animada de Netflix está en tu casa lista para compartir la cena con toda tu familia. En esta propuesta vemos el origen de Santa Claus en un remoto pueblo y la historia de un egocéntrico cartero que poco a poco empieza a pensar más en los demás. Créenos cuando decimos que no puedes perdértela pues su animación está en 2D pero parece 3D, además cuenta con doblaje de Sebastián Yatra, Cecilia Suárez y Joaquín Cosío.

3. El extraño mundo de Jack

Disponible en Claro Video México

Dirigida por Tom Selleck, esta película es una de las consentidas de los Millennial pues nos presenta el mundo turbio de Jack y su ambición por apoderarse de la Navidad hasta que se le sale de las manos. Una obra de ‘stop motion’ de calidad impecable que las nuevas generaciones no pueden perder es, ¿estás de acuerdo? Pues es una buena opción para reunir a la familia.

4. El Origen de los Guardianes

Disponible en Netflix

‘El Origen de los Guardianes’, una película de animación con la calidad garantizada de Dreamworks, nos cuenta la historia de lo que sucede con los grandes mitos infantiles y cómo deben unirse para conservar la ilusión de los niños. Sobra decir que es perfecta para verla con niños.

5. Gremlins

Disponible en HBO GO

El tierno Gizmo llega como un regalo navideño a casa de Billy. Existen tres reglas: no darles de comer después de la medianoche, no mojarlo y no exponerlo al sol, ¿y qué hace Billy? Pues rompe una de las reglas y se desata el caos en su pobre pueblo. ¿Piensas comer tu cena navideña después de la medianoche? Pues sólo cuídate de no ser un gremlin.

6. La joya de la familia

Disponible en Claro Video México

¿Será tu primera Navidad en casa de la familia de tu pareja? Eso suele ser todo un acontecimiento. Por eso no te recomendamos que veas ‘La joya de la familia’, al menos no el mero día. Mira la historia de Meredith y de su primer contacto con la familia de su novio en una comedia muy oscura, un drama creciente y siente la incomodidad de esta reunión en la que nada parece que está saliendo bien. ¡No apta para nerviosos! 

7. Una Navidad de locos

Disponible en Google Play

Esta película puede que no la conozcas. Una familia decide no celebrar la Navidad para irse de vacaciones pues la hija ya dijo que no asistirá este año pero… ¡a la mera hora dice que sí! Entonces los papás deben planear una cena, adornar y comprar regalos en las últimas horas y todo se sale de control. Una comida con el humor de Tim Allen y la siempre agradable presencia de Jamie Lee Curtis que te hará recordar esos imprevistos de último momento de tu propia cena de Navidad.

8. El regalo prometido

Disponible en Google Play

Y ya que hablamos de dejarlo todo para la última hora, ¿qué te parecería volver a ver ‘El regalo prometido’? La angustiante búsqueda de Arnold Schwarzenegger de un juguete de moda que ya está agotado y de cómo terminó convirtiéndose en el héroe de su hijo y rescatar a su familia. Puro espíritu navideño de amor y esperanza en tu sala.

9. Navidad en África

Disponible en Netflix

¿Alguna vez te has imaginado cómo celebran la Navidad en África? Pues acompáñanos en esta historia nueva sobre Kate (Kristin Davis de Sex & The City) una mujer recién divorciada que pensaba celebrar su segunda luna de miel en un safari y ahora tendrá que hacerlo sola. Sin embargo, en esta aventura se encariña con un bebé elefante que le hace mirar la vida distinto para darse una segunda oportunidad. Y sale el guapísimo Rob Lowe. De nada.

10. Mi pobre angelito (Home Alone)

Disponible en Claro Video México

Finalmente, la favorita de la temporada, ¿o hay otra? Por supuesto que no. Ya te sabes la historia de Kevin, de cómo se les olvida a sus papás y se queda solo en casa para enfrentar a los ladrones que quieren robar su casa. Hoy es todo un clásico de Navidad y su segunda parte (que la encuentras en AppleTV) también tiene un fuerte mensaje sobre el amor en familia y la madurez. 

¿Te han gustado nuestras recomendaciones? No dudes en agregar a tu lista las que más te llamaron la atención y pasa una Navidad distinta haciendo streaming con Roku.
