Read my spoiler-free movie review of  The Christmas Chronicles 2 (2020).


Kurt Russell, Goldie Hawn are back for The Christmas Chronicles 2.

Directed/co-written by  Chris Columbus and also starring Julian Dennison plus Tyrese Gibson; this time Kate Pierce is now a cynical teenager. One who finds herself unexpectedly reunited with Santa Clause when a mysterious troublemaker threatens to cancel Christmas forever.

Russell’s beautiful beard and gorgeous Santa coat are two things that stood out in a good way in the first The Christmas Chronicles movie.

I also recall a big brother character who seemed too old to be as ‘into Santa’ as he was. He doesn’t appear to be n this movie, and it’s great to see that Santa’s beard and coat haven’t changed one bit.

As for how much fun I’m likely to have with this sequel, let’s just say that based on this trailer, I hope to be pleasantly surprised.

Judah Lewis, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Patrick Gallagher, Darby Camp, Michel Issa Rubio, Teya Wild, Amanda Cleghorn, Christy St. John, Jahzir Bruno, Megan Serena Trainer and Romy Sanchez also star.

The Christmas Chronicles 2 Release Dates: November 25th, 2020 (US), Netflix…

THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES (2018): The Things I Liked…

There are four key things I like most about The Christmas Chronicles, the story, one about siblings whose Christmas Eve plan to catch Santa Claus on camera turns into an unforgettable adventure. 

The first highlight is the ‘performance’ during the time in jail, the second is ‘the world in Santa’s bag,’ the third is the very adorable way the words ‘Papa Noel’ are uttered towards the end. And last but not least is that very glorious red leather coat on Santa’s back. Santa’s beard is quite something too, but that coat!

When I wasn’t busy admiring the aforementioned, I was thinking that overall The Christmas Chronicles isn’t a terrible Christmas movie’. I mean, yes, there was a moment or a few when one of the young actors didn’t deliver their lines in a particularly believable way.

There was also a part of me that felt as though the older sibling was probably too old for some aspects of the story. Still, all these ‘inconveniences’ didn’t stop me from watching till the end. I guess I was just very much in the mood for Christmas.

Watch it if you’re so curious.

Starring Kurt Russell, Oliver Hudson, Darby Camp, Judah Lewis and directed by Clay Kaytis, The Christmas Chronicles is an action/adventure about a sister and brother, whose Christmas Eve plan to catch Santa Claus on camera, turns into a very unexpected adventure.

I’m not quite in the mood for this movie just yet but I will be in about a month and a half.

Fingers crossed I’ll like it enough to watch till the very end. What I know for sure is that the hair on Russell’s face and head is a great incentive. Am I right or am I right?

Lamorne Morris, Lauren Collins and Kimberly Williams-Paisley also star.

The Christmas Chronicles Release Dates: November 22nd, 2018 (US)…
