If you're sticking around Dubai this year, or you just fancy a bit of extra festive film fun, then Netflix also has plenty of things to watch in the lead-up to the most wonderful time of the year.

You’ll find a few block-busting numbers in the mix – notably Elf and, erm, Elf – but predominantly a whole of lot Netflix Originals and made-for-TV movies to get your teeth into.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
