The 31st of December is an exciting time for us all, champagne or fizzy grape juice depending on your age, fireworks, the lasting euphoria from Christmas and the slight bloating from way too much delicious food that has been laden upon the table. Yes, the holiday season is beloved by all, however what do you do if a certain member of your family is just not feeling the necessary spirit – aka they have not wanted to listen to Michael Buble’s Christmas CDs on repeat (maybe that’s just me)? Well, then you come straight here because we have found a list of movies to get them in the mood to wish in the New Year properly.
If you happen to be in a bit of a darker mood and want to scare the festiveness back into your family’s bones – we don’t judge – then we can only recommend the tale of a luxury ocean liner that was meant to sail until it didn’t. No, not the Titanic, instead pull out Poseidon. The SS Poseidon meets the fury of the seas when on New Year’s Eve a rogue tidal wave flips the ship right over and it slowly starts to sink.
However, a romantic comedy might be a more appropriate way to transfer the excitement of a new year and new possibilities on your loved ones, when in doubt of which one to show, why not stick to a classic? When Harry met Sally, the romantic comedy follows two old friends as they wonder whether taking their relationship to the next level would be the right move for them and it all comes to a head on New Year’s Eve.
Something a bit more drama or intrigue, whether you are infatuated with the luxury of the mob or simply like the endless mystery, mayhem and guns, The Godfather part II will most certainly have you in the mood for a New Year’s Eve soiree like no other. The main drama in the movie takes place at a New Year’s Eve party, right while the country of Cuba is about to embark on a revolution, the scene really couldn’t be more fit for drama.
For those feeling a little down on their luck, recovering from a relationship drama or who simply love Bridget Jones, the Bridget Jones Diary is a perfect way to set up for the New Year. The film truly is perfect as it begins on New Year’s Day and then ends on the very next New Year’s Eve; regardless the bunny outfit at the garden party scene is enough to watch the film on its own. Perhaps it will even inspire you to keep a diary of all your escapades for the following year?
And finally, how can you prepare for New Year’s Eve without watching the movie New Year’s Eve? The movie follows a series of several different couples and single people who all happen to cross paths on a New Year’s Eve in New York City and with a star studded cast this is guaranteed to get the festive feelings going.
