Not every film set in winter is about Christmas, and not everyone wants to see a Christmas movie during the winter. We’re not about to knock Hallmark movies (because we love those, too), but sometimes you just want to stream a movie that isn’t focused on holiday romances or floating us Christmas carols during snow-laden wintry montages. That’s where these non-holiday winter movies come in — and you can watch them all right now.
No matter what your favorite genre is, there are so many films available for streaming or to rent on sites like Amazon, Hulu, and Netflix. This list of recommended viewing is perfect if you’re looking for a winter-set movie with approximately zero jingling bells, candy canes, snowmen or dudes in red suits with big white beards. Gather your snacks and your comfiest blanket and hunker down — it’s movie time.
