This week Kayla and I are back reviewing the last two movie premieres of the week: A Holiday in Harlem starring Olivia Washington, Will Adams and Tiffany Lifford, as well as One December Night starring Eloise Mumford, Brett Dalton, Bruce Campbell and Peter Gallagher.
We praise the representation in A Holiday in Harlem. From an all black cast to a curvy beautiful lead. We also loved the neighborhood feel of this movie. The block party was the bomb and the fashion show was very much like a black fashion show. (That's how it was in my neighborhood growing up anyway. lol.) Also we are very critical of Hallmark's lack of advertising this movie, which in our opinion was a big contribution to its ratings.
Kayla and I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars
One December Night was heavy, touching upon subjects of alzheimer's, alcoholism, abandonment and cancer. But it was beautifully done. You cried and you laughed. The actors all had chemistry and was believable. Also this had the right amount of singing, which was a critic we had with Christmas in Harmony. We wanted more singing in the movie since it centered around a choir. This storyline, singing only in the end made sense since both men were reluctant to work together
Kayla gives this one 5 stars. I give it 4.8. *My favorite is still Christmas in My Heart.
Sunday, November 21, we will be releasing our interview with Nikki DeLoach about her newest movie, Five More Minutes. It was an honor to interview her.
