Siggghhhhh, who would of thought my punk ass would ever become a jerk who reviews things. You can go to anyone else’s site for their opinion but no, you clicked on my post didn’t ya? Ok I’ll humor you. I’ll start doing movie reviews. I am a cinemark member and there is a movie theater up the street from my job. I love going to the movies when it’s just me and old people in the theater. I don’t know how you watch films, but me, I love the previews and the theater surround sound. Movies hypnotize me and I can get lost in a film. Ok enough of that mushy stuff let’s get down to business:
Look at the stub below. Notice how movies have assigned seating now? Yea wtf, assigned seating. What if you want to change seats? Siiiiggghh
Ok so this movie, Almost Christmas bored me. It felt like This Christmas or 1st Sunday mixed together. Typical Black family drama during the holidays. Cooking, Church, Fighting etc. Too predictable with this great cast. The premise, Danny Glover’s loving wife passed away and their 5 children is coming home to Birmingham Alabama for the holidays. Mo’nique played Glover’s sister in law who was actually funny in this film but that’s about it. Gabrielle Union played herself as she always do in every black movie. A self righteous, uptight, independent sistah, who can never find a good man. Danny Glover is the main character whose wife died and is trying to get the family together for one last Christmas before selling the house. This movie was boring but I still supported because it is a Black movie. I give it a C-. And that’s being generous. So if you don’t see this movie, honestly you are not missing anything. the whole movie feels like a bad Soul Food episode. Danny Glover frantically looking for his deceased wife sweet potato pies recipe. Gabrielle Union and Kimberly Elise are the siblings who can not get alone for anything and end up reconciling towards the end (typical). I did manage to sneak in a Butterfinger and a egg nog shake.
Well there’s my half ass review. If you have anything to *yawn* Yes I just yawned. Anyways you know what to do.
