9 holiday movies for every kind of viewer, from 'Elf' to 'Grandma's Boy'

-The holidays are in full swing and here’s a few holiday movies to prepare yourself.

I just feel like no one wants to watch a Christmas movie unless it has animals in it. Not that they should. In fact, cat aficionados — there are so many!

I mean, just check out the internet. Here are a few movies I’ve been watching lately that would be very fitting for next month.

1. “It’s a Wonderful Life”

After surviving years of bullies and rejection, George Bailey finally gets the chance to experience the true meaning of Christmas — and this time it’s not a legend, but a real person’s. With love, courage and faith, Bailey learns about what really matters — love and family — and becomes a better person. It’s the perfect sentiment for anyone struggling to pick out a gift or just trying to find the Christmas spirit in the days leading up to the big day.

2. “Elf”

This is one of those movies that keep getting released more years after it first showed up in theaters, especially after the relative success of “Elf 2.” Yes, this new film reunites Will Ferrell and James Caan in an unforgettable flick that falls in line with the holiday spirit of the season. We’re sold.

3. “The Christmas Shoes”

Would you pay millions to get your own personal monstrosity? This particular version of “The Christmas Shoes” gives those who get the shoes the ability to spend a year in the owner’s home, meet family and friends and take care of them as they settle into the carefree lifestyle.

4. “It’s A Wonderful Life”

OK, so this is for people who already like both “Miracle on 34th Street” and “It’s a Wonderful Life” as well as people who don’t mind a bit of darkness. One of these worlds are better than the other, I guess.

5. “Grandma’s Boy”

With 60 years of grumpy old guy actions, he ends up at a retirement home run by feisty granny. From there, he finds lots of fun, laughs and surprises — he even winds up in an amazing holiday movie!

6. “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days”

A movie based on a children’s book about a teenager who breaks up with his best friend and fails to break up with his house. Years later, after a huge party, the boy goes on a revenge mission to finally get back at his friend and the house. Which in the end, gets broken into by a friend of the boy’s. Like I said, it will get some people laughing.

7. “The Nutcracker”

This is sort of a scary one to see as it can get very weird and gory, but the movie is based on the works of the classic nutcracker story, so it’s fair game. I mean, it’s got sugarplums, drums and party hats, but also body parts, needles and a few face-melting moments. It’s almost like it actually is the Nutcracker, or a multi-generational family friend.

8. “The Fox and the Hound”

Alright, so for kids who don’t really like storybook-style films, this one isn’t great but for everyone else, this one is great. It definitely falls into the category of something your favorite aunt is secretly into. Plus, it has a couple of Christmas-y little gifts like a reindeer and a snowy setting.

9. “It’s a Wonderful Life”
