Netflix have sent us their master list of all Christmas content, new and old, for 2017, spanning movies, TV shows and cartoons - we've listed everything below and emboldened a few picks, be they out of genuine praise or nostalgia or curiosity.

If you're not feeling festive, Battle Royale is also on Netflix 'Three days. One island. Forty-two students must kill to survive.'
