Review: Set Yourself a YuleTubing Date With THE CHRISTMAS SETUP

The Christmas Setup is a sweet movie that sometimes moves more slowly than a line of cars in a 1980s mall parking lot at Christmas-time. Personally, I have a deep wish that they had kept the same storyline of Fran Drescher as a widowed mother determined to set up her home-for-the-holidays, somewhat uptight, big-city lawyer … Continue reading Review: Set Yourself a YuleTubing Date With THE CHRISTMAS SETUP

Title poster for LOVE HARD. Across the top there are red and white draw Christmas lights. Below that in small font is a tagline that reads "A romantic comedy about the lies we tell for love." Below that it says A NETFLIX FILM lovehard (with a small text typing box above the word hard) below that are the stars' names Nina Dobrev, Jimmy O. Yang, Darren Barnet. Nov. 5 Netflix.

On either side are hand drawn pictures of cell phones with a photo of Jimmy O. Yang in one and Darren Barnet in the other.

My unsolicited advice? Don't watch the trailer, which is kind of disjointed and misleading. It's much better just to plunge straight into watching Getting to Know You, which is a surprisingly honest, gentle, bittersweet, and funny look at what happens over the course of one weekend when two people meet at a hotel in a … Continue reading Review: GETTING TO KNOW YOU is Honest, Gentle, Funny, and Bittersweet

Review: Aside From Being Clunky, THE LAST LETTER FROM YOUR LOVER Should Be Fined For Gross Underuse of an Actor

The Netflix movie The Last Letter From Your Lover is about as clunky as its mouthful of a title. On paper, this should be a sweeping romance spanning several decades that shows the power of true love to endure even the harshest tests of time but, in practice, it’s a disjointed jumble of undeveloped lukewarm … Continue reading Review: Aside From Being Clunky, THE LAST LETTER FROM YOUR LOVER Should Be Fined For Gross Underuse of an Actor
