Christmas Movie Reactions

Isis:

A Charlie Brown Christmas – I loved this movie so much. It’s my first time watching a Charlie Brown movie, and I regret all those years I missed out on this pure and beautiful story. I related so much to Charlie Brown, and I was left with such a good feeling at the end. I plan on rewatching it many times in the future. I give it 10/10.

A Very Merry Toy Store – This was full of cliches, but in the best ways. It was sweet and warm, but it had a few bumps in the road to add to the drama. I loved that the issues were never that bad, and everything got solved perfectly. It was so nice seeing Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez in another movie together. They have good chemistry, and it’s just really fun to see them interacting. It was lovely. 8.5/10.

A Miser Brothers’ Christmas – I only half watched this movie because it didn’t grab my attention. The setting was okay, and I understood what it was trying to do, but it ended up feeling more like a poorly-made after-school special. I didn’t like any of the characters either. 2/10.

Nicole:

Elf – I know this is everyone’s favorite Christmas movie, but I didn’t enjoy it as much. I thought it was funny, but I also suffered so much second hand embarrassment. 4/10.

Jingle All the Way – This was cute and cheesy, and I loved every minute of it. It had a cute holiday message to it too. 9/10.

Marry Me for Christmas – This was nothing like what I expected, and yet, everything I wanted. It was cheesy and full of tropes. There was a bunch of loose ends, and everything moved too quickly. I had a lot of fun though. 8/10.

Christmas Movies We Hope to Watch

It is now officially December. And Nicole and I have made it our task to watch some famous, or new, Christmas movies to later review right here on our blog. I am a huge fan of cheesy Christmas movies. My favorite, by far, is Holiday in Handcuffs (from the screenshot above). I’ve sort of made it a tradition to force everyone to watch it every year with me. But I think it’s good to branch out a little bit too. So, although I will definitely rewatch Holiday in Handcuffs again this year, Nicole and I will watch these Christmas movies as well.

Nicole’s Picks:

  • Jingle All the Way (1996)

With Arnold Schwarzenegger as a workaholic father hellbent on finding the perfect toy for his son, I bet he’ll learn in a funny, silly journey that Christmas isn’t all about presents. And I will probably like it.

  • Marry Me For Christmas (2013)

A businesswoman’s family simply wants her to find a husband. For the holidays she decides to bring along her assistant who pretends to be her fiancee. I predict they will fall in love or something, and all the lies will work out. And I will probably reluctantly find it really cute.

  • Elf (2003)

No I’ve never seen this, and yes once I finally do I guess I will like it like everyone else does.

 

Isis’s Picks:

  • A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)

I love Snoopy, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen any of the Charlie Brown movies. I’m pretty sure as a kid I loved the Peanuts comics. I think it’s about time I watched this one. I have no doubt it will fill my heart with warm, fuzzy feelings.

  • A Very Merry Toy Store (2017)

My dynamic duo: Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez, return to the world of cheesy Christmas movies with A Very Merry Toy Store. It’s the story of two toy store owners who unite forces when a big toy corporation moves into town. I am so excited about this one. I hope to love it as much as Holiday in Handcuffs. If not, then at least it will make me “aww” a lot because look at those two.

  • A Miser Brothers’ Christmas (2008)

I’m not sure what to expect from this one. I know one of them is Jack Frost. Nicole told me to watch it. But she and I have very different taste. I hope to be entertained by it, but we shall see. Honestly, those two look sort of creepy.
