As many of you have either Netflix or Amazon Prime, could you recommended any good movies to watch. The Netflix catalogue is rather large and trying to search through it all can be a bit of a pain.
Seeing as it Christmas and I have my kids for the holiday, some family or Christmassy recommendations would be great, but any sort of movies would be good as well.

Love that film. I do actually like Gerard Butler as an actor.

Its a Wonderful Life is a classic. Dont be put off by the fact its black and white.

Gran Tourino isnt very Christmassy, but its a cracking film all the same. Arent the last two Hobbit films on Netflix? Also worth viewing.

Best of all, watch Orange is The New Black. Very funny and damn good watching. Though not with any kiddies around mind.

I have watch that already. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and not because of the raunchy lesbian scenes, honest :D Can't wait for Season 3 to come out.

Lillyhammer if you haven't seen it. Especially if you liked The Sopranos. Have you seen Breaking Bad yet? One of the best shows I have ever seen.

Think Dutch Netflix has some differences, but:

I watch series mainly, not too much of the movies.
Currently enjoying Marco Polo & Orphan Black. Neither suited for children though.
You might want to give "All hail King Julien" a try for the kids? It's a Netflix original series by Dreamworks. Haven't watched it, just noticed it was there.

Watched Gran Torino the other day. A must see if you like Clint Eastwood.
Watch Grown Ups with the kids, always a good laugh.
