Christmas is a season of love, of joy, and of having a wonderful time together with those that we love. Watching a great movie together can be a wonderful time to spend such precious moments together, but what does Amazon Prime do to help you on your quest for the precious Christmas atmosphere in 2019?
I seem to remember from earlier years that Amazon Prime isn’t the best place to be if you want to stream awesome movies before Christmas. Has anything changed in 2019? I have just spent some hours looking through the movies available on Amazon Prime, and to be honest, the most interesting Christmas title will be removed from Amazon Prime on November 21st (The Man Who Invented Christmas).
There are a couple of movies that might be of interest to some, but the only quality content available is for kids and animated stuff.
Christmas content on Amazon Prime in 2019
There are lots of results if you search for Christmas movies available for Prime subscribers, but if you look at the quality of the actual results, you will almost be disgusted. Most of the productions have so bad quality that I would have made a better movie with my mobile phone at home (at least it feels as if I would have). Some of them haven’t even got trailers available, meaning that they were never meant to reach a large audience.
Luckily, there are a few exceptions. One such exception is the movie Noel, starring Penelope Cruz, Susan Sarandon, Paul Walker, and Alan Arkin. For some reason, this never reached the big audience either, but still – there are at least some famous actors taking part in the movie.
The second Christmas movie with some celebrities on Amazon Prime is A Merry Friggin Christmas. Here we meet Robin Williams, Pierce Gagnon, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Lauren Graham, and Joel McHale, in something that looks like a B- production. Still, it is one of the best options for those looking for a Christmas movie to stream on Amazon Prime in 2019.
What to watch on Amazon Prime for Christmas then?
That is the question I keep asking myself as well. If you have some kids in the house, show them an old mixture for classics which is available with the Prime subscription. You can also watch If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.
If you check the little clip above presenting the best Christmas content on Amazon Prime in 2019, you should definitely see it through. How come? After the presentation of lousy and poor Christmas movies available, you will see three movie recommendations that can be streamed on Amazon Prime that has nothing to do with Christmas. I guess they will give you a way better mood than those poor Christmas movies, so I would just go ahead and stream those instead.
Are you ready then? Or have you found a Christmas movie worth watching on Amazon Prime? Write a comment and let me know what’s on your heart!

Movies that should have been available on Amazon Prime
There are so many Christmas classics that should have been on Amazon Prime, but that is nowhere to be found. The Holiday and Love Actually might be the two biggest Christmas classics from modern times. And then you have lots of other Christmas movies that I would call B movies (4 Christmases, Christmas with the Kranks, and others). These are not really good movies, but compared to what’s available on Amazon Prime currently, it would be a dream to have these movies available.
I wish you all a fantastic Christmas and a happy new year!
