Movie Review: #ALMOSTCHRISTMAS So much fun!

So much fun!

Guess who's back with another review. RAMA delivers another great review.

I love ALMOST CHRISTMAS. It’s a family holiday movie that goes straight for the heart. So much fun! So much energy! Great cast ensemble too, some of the most hilarious people in the business, how can you not be entertained by these excellent, excellent people! They make you feel so welcomed, like you can hang out with them because you know you’ll best buds immediately.

From the mind of writer/director David E. Talbert, ALMOST CHRISTMAS is about a family who gets together for Christmas after the death of their mother. The patriarch (Danny Glover) is still heartbroken from the loss but hopes that these five days will be a chance for them to cherish each other once more as they honor her memories. The problem is, like any other family, they just can’t seem to get along.

I have a soft spot for Christmas movies, there’s something about this festive season that just hits all the right notes with me. ALMOST CHRISTMAS speaks to that and so much more. Accompanied by an all star cast that includes Danny Glover, Romany Malco, Mo’Nique, J.B. Smoove, Gabrielle Union and Omar Epps, right from the start, ALMOST CHRISTMAS aims to crack you up. But I respect Talbert for taking a risk on writing a story like this, because it also manages to drive its point home. So much of what Tyler Perry does with his Madea movies, for example, is over the top slapstick and there’s a disconnect between the characters and the audiences. Whereas ALMOST CHRISTMAS is not just some film targeted at the African American community because the dilemmas presented at hand are quite universal. And the message couldn’t be more fitting for the season.

You may start out judging some of the characters, but they’re written in a way that in the end you kinda understand where they’re coming from. The film hits that nice balance between comedy and drama at just the right tone. Even if it’s not Christmas, I can watch ALMOST CHRISTMAS again and again.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
