Jingle Jangle is one of the must-watch movies on Netflix this weekend

Whether you want something Christmasy or dystopian, there are some must-watch movies on Netflix this weekend.

Gather the family around for a new Christmas story. Check out a dystopian movie that you’ve always meant to watch. Fall in love with a Hallmark-like Christmas movie. Here are the top picks for the weekend.

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is the biggest pick of the week. It’s the movie you’re all likely planning on watching this weekend, and you don’t need kids to do so. It’s going to get you in the spirit of Christmas.

Forest Whitaker is a joyful toy maker. That is until his apprentice betrays him. For decades, he’s struggled to find the light until his granddaughter turns up and brings the magic back. It’s time to go on a Christmas journey like no other.

What We Wanted

If you want something heartfelt, What We Wanted is the movie to turn to. It focuses on a couple with fertility issues who end up with their marriage being put to the test when they go on vacation. The family next door certainly doesn’t help matters.

This isn’t just about the journey to being pregnant. This is about a couple facing loss after loss. Their pregnancies aren’t viable, and they need to decide whether to give up or keep taking on the emotional turmoil.

The Life Ahead

The next of the must-watch movies on Netflix this weekend is an Italian-language movie. It’s going to be a difficult watch, but also an important one. When an immigrant from Senegal robs an Aging Holocaust survivor, she thinks she will just have to move on. What she doesn’t realize is that she’ll have to face her robber again.

This robber is just a 12-year-old boy looking for a home. A bond like no other forms, creating a beautiful story of compassion and kindness.

V for Vendetta

The next two movies won’t be available until Sunday, but they are worth the wait. The first is V for Vendetta, the dystopian future movie starring Natalie Portman. It’s Nov. 5, Bonfire Night. This time, a freedom fighter is going to finish what Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators couldn’t do: blow up the Houses of Parliament.

V uses terrorist tactics in this totalitarian Britain. He’s willing to do whatever it takes so the people get their freedom back, and that includes getting an innocent person to do his bidding.

A Very Country Christmas

Finally, it’s time for a movie that will feel very Hallmark like. With the dark days closing in, there’s no doubt that you want something joyful and romantic to pass the time. A Very Country Christmas is the movie for that this weekend.

When a country superstar moves back home just trying to escape fame, he doesn’t realize that it’s something he could get. However, a single parent has no idea who he really is, and it could be the perfect match.
