HO! … HO! … HO!
It’s about time to get in the Christmas spirit and Netflix is unleashing a slew of holiday films to assist. Most of them are cut from the same mold however one stands out amongst the others to the harbingers. The Christmas Chronicles starring Kurt Russell as a not-so-jolly St. Nick. Russell’s Santa Clause is cut from a different cloth than his predecessors. He’s fun, endearing, and has a twinkle in his eye and a complex about his weight.
All in all, The Christmas Chronicles is a light and fun romp through several countries and US cities but is 100% carried by Mr. Kringle. When Russell is absent from the picture, the film is less fun/bearable. We don’t think The Christmas Chronicles will make its way on the harbinger’s annual Christmas movie lists, but it was a fun departure from the other content Netflix has been pushing through.
