8 movies you must watch with your friends and loved ones this Christmas

With two days until the New Year, most people are trying to relax and enjoy the rest of 2022. Whether they choose to do so by visiting hotspots like beaches, clubs, and parties, or by spending time at home with their loved ones, no one can go wrong with a movie. .

Family time, music, and giving is what this season is all about. But movies are another way to take advantage of the holiday feeling.

Below we highlight eight films to watch before the year runs out. These movies are presented in no particular order.


1. The Battle of Boca Street

Two competitors with different food businesses on the same street find themselves getting pulled together in this movie. Written and co-directed by Funke Akindele, the film was released on December 16 and is currently in cinemas.


2. Avatar: Water Road

Another movie with a theatrical release on the 16th, Avatar: The Way of Water promises to be an enjoyable movie. A sequel to one of the highest-grossing films of all time, The Way of Water, Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana reprise their roles as Jake Sully and Ney’tiri, respectively, from Avatar (2009). With better graphics and design, this movie expands on the fictional place Pandora with more adventures.


3. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Although this movie has been in cinemas for more than five weeks, it is still worth watching. After the tragic passing of actor Chadwick Boseman, the characters in the universe have to deal with the loss of their own personality. In a movie that deals with grief, Western imperialism, and colonialism, it’s arguably the best MCU movie after Avengers: Endgame.


4. Naji’s birthday

Directed by Kunle Afolayan, the film focuses on three siblings trying to fulfill their mother’s desire to settle down before Christmas. The incentive you offer them is that the first to do so will inherit the family home. What do you get when you mix family dynamics, sibling rivalry, romance, comedy, and Christmas? A pure fun movie for the whole family.

The film stars Kunle Remy, Eva Iwara, Sigilola Ogedane, Linda Osifo, Abayomi Alvin and Nollywood legend Rachel Onega. It was also one of the films of the late Rachel Onega.

Sparks fly as the brothers’ frantically entertaining attempts to inherit the house.

A Naija Christmas is currently available on Netflix.


5. Christmas in Miami

This movie follows a real estate magnate in the United States who is preparing a kind of reality TV competition called The Olympics of Christmas or Father Christmas. It involves a battle royale between six families from six different countries and cultures, which they battle in different categories to win one million dollars. Families were flown to Miami for a week to compete in these games.

In this extravagant portrayal, the Mongols and writers want to show that people are the same across cultures.

Coming to America also stars John Amos, Richard Moviee Damejo (RMD), AY, and Osita Iheme. It was released in theaters on Christmas Eve in 2021 and is now available to stream on Prime Video.


6. Christmas is coming

A few days before Christmas, when she has a big show, sloppy tomboy Henri Atta (Ufuoma McDermott) faces a streak of bad luck after being turned into a “lady” by her rowdy buddies Avia and Nene (Mary Lazarus, Izzie Otaigbe) . She struggles on the field, and it’s not because of her co-worker Lola Makinde (Shyoma Chukwuka). She inadvertently develops feelings for her employer, Coco Williams (Deyemi Okanlawon), and soon finds herself dealing with the aftermath of that relationship.


7. Home Alone

Almost everyone has seen this classic movie. Home Alone follows 8-year-old Kevin, who is accidentally left at home when the rest of his family travels to France for the Christmas holidays. At first, he is happy to be alone and in charge of himself, but that soon changes when he must stop thieves from breaking into and robbing his house.


8. It’s a wonderful life

Arguably one of the best movies ever made, this movie follows entrepreneur George Bailey. He was tired of living, so an angel from heaven, Clarence, was sent to him. To change his heart, the angel showed him what life would have been like without his presence.

It was nominated for six Academy Awards following its release and is available for streaming on Prime Video.
