Where once you were beholden to watching A Christmas Story four times in a row on TV every Christmas, now thanks to the magic of streaming you’ve got more options. Services like Amazon Prime are here to help you have the merriest Christmas possible.

Here is our list of the best Christmas movies on Amazon Prime. We trust that you’ll take a break from your holiday binging to point out titles we’ve missed.

Bad Santa

God bless the movies whose titles are essentially their premise. Billy Bob Thornton is a mall Santa. He’s bad. It’s Bad Santa. Ok, that’s selling it a bit short. Billy Bob Thornton stars as Willie T. Soke, who is actually a thief. He and his assistant Marcus disguise themselves as Santa and an elf to rob malls by night though Willie’s alcoholism and sex addiction begin to get in the way of him even pretending to be a competent mall Santa.

Bad Santa is hilariously crass and brutal, which makes sense given the talent involved. Christmas has plenty of movies to get you in the spirit of the season. This one will get you in a completely different kind of Christmas cheer.

Amazon Prime Christmas Movie Streaming Doctor Who

Doctor Who Christmas Specials

If the British know one thing it’s tea. If they know two things it’s tea and Christmas specials. Many big-time U.K. television shows have their own excellent holiday specials. Decades-old sci-fi institution Doctor Who, however, takes the cake when it comes to Christmas excellence.

Amazon Prime has six seasons worth of Doctor Who Christmas specials featuring the two most recent Doctors Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi. Each episode is an hour-long treat of Doctor Who and Christmas goodies and should the joy of watching them ever peter out, there are plenty of bonus materials to watch as well.

Christmas, Again is a 2014 indie movie written, directed, and produced by Charles Poekel that made its American debut at the Sundance film festival. The film follows the ironically named Noel, who is a heartbroken Christmas tree salesman who moves to New York City to leave his past and Christmas, itself behind. Noel lives in a trailer, works the night shift and almost succumbs to his boredom and depression…until he meets someone.

Christmas, Again is a fascinating mashup of a traditional Christmas movie and mumblecore.
