On the occasion of Christmas in 2020, the famous film scoring website Rotten Tomatoes selected the “Top Ten Christmas Movies” to take stock of those best films released on Christmas (December 25).
In addition, the “Best Christmas Video” was selected. After five rounds of user voting, the first “The Little Ghost” defeated “Christmas Elf” by 20% to become the “Best Christmas Video”.
The top ten Christmas movies is the classic crime film “Fraud” starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford. It was released on Christmas Day 1973 and was a great success. It not only grossed $835 million, but also won the Academy Award for Best Picture in the following year.
Second place was Cat and Mouse Game, directed by Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio, which was released on Christmas 2002 and also received $257 million in local box office and top praise.
In third place is Quentin Tarantino’s Western The Rescued Django, which was released on Christmas Day in 2012, grossed $190 million locally and won two Oscars for Best Original Screenplay and Supporting Actor.
On the Rotten Tomatoes list, it also includes different types of films such as Kill a Mockingbird, Little Woman, Emergency Search Order, Detective Sherlock Holmes and Tombstone Town.
However, the list does not include “Christmas movies” in the usual sense of “Christmas Monster”, “True Love” and “Home” in the family 2, perhaps because comedy and animation, although in line with the “family style” of Christmas, were not released on December 25.
In view of the severe epidemic situation in North America, most cinemas are also closed.
This year’s Christmas schedule is probably the lowest-grossing Christmas in recent years.” Unlike in previous years, we may not go outside to watch movies tomorrow (Christmas),” Rotten Tomatoes commented.
“But fortunately, there is a streaming platform to fill this gap in the holiday by watching Wonder Woman 1984 on HBOMax and Mind on Disney+.”
