The Nativity Story (2006)
Genres: Drama, Religion
Starring: Keisha Castle-Hughes
Synopsis: A drama that focuses on the period in Mary and Joseph's life where they journeyed to Bethlehem for the birth of Jesus.
Review: It’s hard to tell this story and make it seem authentic and realistic but they achieved it. It’s done in a way that’s sensitive to the religious content.
The Night Before (2015)
Genres: Adventure, Comedy
Starring: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogan, and Anthony Mackie
Synopsis: On Christmas eve, three lifelong friends spend the night in New York City looking for the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.
Review: This movie can be summed up in two words, Seth Rogan. It’s got the same feeling as all his other buddy films. It’s goofy and a little odd. If you like Rogan's movies you’ll enjoy it.
The Nightmare Before Christmas (2010)
Genres: Animation, Fantasy
Starring: Danny Elfman, Chris Sarandon, and Catherine O’Hara
Synopsis: Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but his attempts to bring Christmas to his home causes confusion.
Review: Another Tim Burton movie that’s so bizarre you’ll either love it or hate it. It’s half Halloween and half Christmas. It’s become an annual tradition for many but might be frightening to very young children.
The Night Before The Night Before Christmas (1993)
Genres: Family, Fantasy
Starring: Jennifer Beals and Rick Roberts
Synopsis: When Santa sets off on his Christmas duties a day early, he crashes into the Fox family's house, ends up with amnesia, and loses his magic sack of presents. He needs help! But the Fox family are a modern and broken family. Can they help him?
Review: This movie seems to be a watered-down version of other Christmas movies. It’s okay but I didn’t really enjoy it.
