Movies are a wonderful and relaxing way to kick off the new year. You can just get in your Pajamas, curl up in your blanket, and pick some snacks for a movie marathon! So get into the festival spirit, grab a glass of champagne (or any other drink), and ring in the new year with these New Year's movies.

1. New year's Eve (2011)

Main Cast- Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Biel, Ashton Kutcher

new year's eve

New Year's Eve is a romantic comedy film directed by Garry Marshall. It's a beautiful film that follows the lives of several New York City couples and singles as they intertwine in one way or another throughout the period of New Year's Eve. The glittery film is a bit of a follow-up to Valentine's Day (released in 2010), and it features a large, well-known cast. While it may not be filmmaker Garry Marshall's best work, it is nonetheless a worthwhile watch.

2. Snowpiercer (2013)

Main Cast- Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton

This film is not just one of the best New Year's films, but also one of the best dystopian thrillers in recent years. The film is set in the future, when a disastrous climate change experiment has destroyed all life on the planet except for those who escaped by boarding the Snowpiercer (a train that travels around the globe). Climate change has forced humanity to live on a moving train, and each time it circles the world, New Year's is celebrated. The riff-raff (in the back) and the important passengers (in the front) are segregated until one man (Chris Evans) decides to move up to the conductor's car.
