Nothing beats sinking into the sofa on dark December night to watch a festive flick on the box.

Let’s be honest though, there’s a lot of drivel to trudge through before you hit on something decent.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with to trawl through Rotten Tomatoes and rank the best movies to catch on Netflix on the run-up to our favourite time of the year!

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas – 50% Tomatometer / 56% Audience Score

People of a certain vintage will appreciate the nostalgia of Jim Carrey’s Dr. Seuss remake, but boy has it aged badly.

Nativity! – 46% Tomatometer / 65% Audience Score

Well-meaning to the point of nausea, this British festive flick is saved by a somewhat decent cast and even better punchlines. You could do worse!

Get Santa – 79% Tomatometer / 54% Audience Score

As English as a cuppa Earl Grey, Get Santa shines in part to a stellar performance by Jim Broadbent’s accident-prone Santa Claus.

The Christmas Chronicles – 64% Tomatometer / 78% Audience Score

More of a hit with audiences than critics, this holiday adventure features its fair share of suspect acting only to be saved by the ever-brash Kurt Russell as Santa Claus.

The Man Who Invented Christmas – 79% Tomatometer / 77% Audience Score

A sweet twist on A Christmas Carol, The Man Who Invented Christmas manages to be both fresh and nostalgic.

Arthur Christmas – 92% Tomatometer / 76% Audience Score

Clever and earnest, this animation has character and feelgood festive spirit to burn.

Klaus – 89% Tomatometer / 97% Audience Score

Gorgeous animation and free from old Christmas clichés, Sergio Pablo’s Klaus animated feature is head and shoulders above Netflix’s other festive feasts.
