The Christmas Heart (2012) Rated NR

When a teenager is in desperate need of a heart transplant his neighbors, family, and friends rally behind him and celebrate Christmas. Starring Teri Polo, Paul Essiembre, and Ty Wood.

The one thing going for this film is that it is different from any other Hallmark Christmas movie in that it’s very emotional. We have a teenager who’s full of life and is suddenly struck with a heart condition leaving him in need of a new heart. There are a lot of things left unexplained about the heart condition other than the fact that he has one. Then you have the problem that everyone in that situation goes through – the fact that praying for a heart to become available means someone else has to die. It’s a dilemma; you don’t want to wish for someone else’s pain, but you also want the best for your family. The film touches on that but doesn’t dive deep into the dilemma – that’s the case with all Hallmark films. The mother is a woman of faith, but there is no mention of God or Jesus – just praying. Some moments run slow and there are moments of sorrow that seems rather shallow. Although this film has good intentions, it really isn’t a feel-good Christmas movie and isn’t worth a watch.

The Bridge Part 2 (2016) Rated NR

A storm has destroyed The Bridge bookstore, and it will soon lose its funding. With Charlie’s accident leaving him in a coma, the people who love The Bridge rally behind it to save the store. Starring Katie Findlay, Wyatt Nash, and Ted McGinley.

This sequel to The Bridge Part I  leaves much to be desired. At times, the writing was sluggish. Then, there’s the storyline with the father, which seemed out of place and out of character for a fun Christmas film. To make the storyline worse, the daughter forgives her father way too fast for the damages he’s done in her life –  it just doesn’t fit the film’s overarching story. It was way too quick and easy – almost like a thought. I wish this sequel held up with Part One, but it doesn’t – making it not worth a watch.

Sherlock Gnomes (2018) Rated PG

Garden gnomes are disappearing across London, and Gnomeo and Juliet recruit Sherlock Gnomes to investigate. Starring Kelly Asbury, Mary J. Blige, and Emily Blunt.

I was surprised after the first Gnome film that they made a sequel. Although, I really think it’s cute that they are retelling classic stories using gnomes. However, like the original Gnomeo and Julietthe story is boring at times, and there doesn’t seem to be a point to it. The film does have it’s funny moments, but it lacks more than the first installment. It’s filled with its usual cast of A-listers, but they still can’t pull you into a film about gnomes.  This film isn’t worth a watch.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (2009) Rated PG

A scientist is regarded a failure until he invents a machine that drops food from the sky. Based on the book by Judi and Ron Barrett. Starring Bill Hader, Anna Faris, and James Caan.

This film does a wonderful job making the small children’s book into a feature-length film. It’s silly, funny and entertaining. The story translates well onto the big screen. It adds some things to the story to entertain the parents; it’s full of action and some gross scenes. The story and animation are amusing. This film is worth a watch.

Reverie (NBC) Rated TV-14

A hostage negotiator works to retrieve people who are lost in a virtual reality program. Starring Sarah Shahi, Dennis Haysbert, and Sendhil Ramamurthy.

This show brings a thriller to the small screen. Mara Kint heads into the virtual reality program to find the missing and help retrieve them. She must figure out why they are there and what would make them leave the program. It’s a mystery that is intriguing. It’s a new type of mystery, different from the typical cop and law shows – it’s very intriguing. It brings something different to television that even the medical dramas don’t have. Is it a good show? I wouldn’t say it’s one of the best shows out there, but it is interesting to watch. This show could go many different ways with its storylines. I would say this is worth a watch.

Midway to Heaven (2011) Rated PG

Ned Stevens lost his wife to cancer years ago but can’t seem to leave her memory and move on with his life. His daughter comes home from college with a new beau and believes it’s time for her father to move on. Based on a novel, Midway to Heaven, by Dean Hughes. Starring Curt Doussett, Kirby Heyborne, and Michelle Money.

This is a typical Christian film; it just touches the surface of the story and doesn’t dig deep into the emotions that come with losing someone and trying to overcome the loss. It isn’t a simple thing to move on after a loss, but the film makes it as simple as can be. It’s also so super sweet that it’s beyond sappy. With a character struggling with loss, you would think there would be more challenge and anger than what is shown in the film. Then you have the overly powering religious messages that are in LDS films. This film has a great premise, but I found the message lacking and not as strong as it could have been. It’ not worth the watch.

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (CBS) Rated NR

A series based on the film, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954). Starring Richard Dean Anderson, Roger Wilson, and Peter Horton.

I was so looking forward to watching this series because I love the 1954 film. However, the only thing this show has in common with the film is that there are seven brothers. The show is an updated version of the film taking place in the 1980s, and the only married brother is the oldest. We have some scenes that are from the film, but most of the storylines are new. The brothers are all ranchers, and every episode either has a mystery that the brothers must solve or the youngest ones getting into trouble. The chemistry between the actors leaves something to be desired – not to mention the acting. Then you have the singing – the songs fit the story, but none of the actors have a voice like Jane Powell or Howard Keel. It’s quite obvious the reasons this show didn’t last more than a year. It’s not worth a watch.
