Christmas List movie review (2016)

The Hallmark Channel has really outdone themselves this time.  And by that, I mean this movie has the exact same beats as every one of their Christmas Rom Coms:

  1. underappreciated woman has boyfriend who doesn’t understand her and/or takes her for granted
  2. woman meets a guy who gets her
  3. at end of the movie, woman stays with original guy because “he had first dibs”

OK, I might have made that last one up.

Nevertheless, warm up your clarinet and “just let it happen” as we dig into Christmas List together.

Holidaze movie review

Gotta get that International Job, right? Just open that Streetsville store and it’s all yours!  “International Job!”  “Streetsville!”  “Melody!” Christmas! Wait, it’s Thanksgiving? I’m sure this movie is going be about Christmas at some point… Although at the start, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet!

Oh, it’s a Thanksgiving movie? It’s a Thanksgiving movie. Oh.  No wait, it’s both? Read the rest of this entry

Merry Matrimony movie review

You think they end up together by the end of the film?

So… Yeah, Merry Matrimony is not a Christmas movie. Not really. This movie could take place during any holiday and it’d still be a RomCom without the Com.  it could just as easily be called Labor Day Love and you’d barely have to change anything.

Window Wonderland movie review

Window Wonderland

Like virtually every movie produced by the Hallmark Channel, Window Wonderland has the usual problems:  by the numbers RomCom, no surprises.  Yet, this movie is a bit more than the sum of its parts. Read the rest of this entry

A Very Murray Christmas has heart but no hop

A-Very-Murray-Christmas

It’s not often that one comes across something like A Very Murray Christmas.  It’s not terrible, it’s not great – it’s a disappointment, but I’m not sorry I watched it…  I wouldn’t even call it an oddity of mediocrity, because it’s not necessarily mediocre.  It just kind of… is.
