What to Watch This Weekend: Holiday Edition

There really aren't many DVD releases this week, so use the time to either head to the theaters to see Wolf of Wall Street or stay in and enjoy some great streaming options.

Martin Scorsese's latest Leonardo DiCaprio film is an over-the-top debaucherous look at someone who made millions on Wall Street overnight and spent it equally as fast. It's a long movie, but DiCarprio's great acting and the crazy story make it a great movie to check out (just keep in mind it has a lot of objectionable content, might not be a family movie). 

Tim Burton's classic stop motion animated film is a Christmas (and Halloween) classic and available for free streaming through Netflix. The style of animation is great and it has plenty of great moments and memorable songs.

Another Christmas classic, this film follows the Griswold family as their plans for a big family Christmas predictably turn into a big disaster. The night goes from bad to worse, but thankfully they keep the spirit of the season alive.

On Christmas Eve during world War I, the Germans, French, and Scottish fraternize and get to know the men who live on the opposite side of a brutal war, in what became a true lesson of humanity.
