It's Merry Movie Monday, so its time for yet another movie review of another Christmas movie. This week's movie was one that I caught on Netflix, so I'm hoping it is still there for you to enjoy!
For today's rating system, we've got to use a calendar! Check out the end of the review for my total rating.
Abby Sutton is a young, talented photographer, but she finds herself stifled at her full-time job, where she takes photos in what seems to be a department store. She gets a huge surprise at Christmas time when her best friend Josh returns back home after traveling around the world.
ACTING | 5/5
I personally really enjoyed the acting. Both of the main actors, Kat Graham and Quincy Brown, are well accomplished in the acting world and had great chemistry. I would have to say, though, my favorite character was Gramps, played by Ron Cephas Jones.
THE STORYLINE | 4/5
Of course, Christmas movies that involve finding true love are a dime a dozen. However, I feel like this one has a kind of twist that makes it a bit more interesting. I did have an idea for the ending segment of the movie, but it didn't actually happen, so I was kind of bummed because I feel like it would have made the ending cuter. DM me or ask me in the comments if you're interested in knowing my ideal ending. I suggest watching it first, though.
THE MEANING | 5/5
I think that this movie's meaning really plays into the "everything is not what it seems" message. It really drives home the message of recognizing who really cares for you and trying not to take some things too seriously. I love it!
SPECIAL EFFECTS/ANIMATION/EDITING | 5/5
I don't really think there was much animation or special effect in this movie, so I added in the editing. I really liked the editing and think that it was professional and made the story that much better!
Overall, I really enjoyed the movie and would highly recommend adding it to your Christmas movie watch list. I hope you enjoyed today's review. See you again next time!
