Let It Snow (2019)

Hey, guys!
Can you believe it’s already December? I swear 2019 had only just started last week!
Anyways, you know what December means, right? It’s time for Christmas movies! How else would you get into that holiday spirit? So, this month, I’ll be showering you in reviews of X-Mas/holiday movies both old and new.
Let’s begin with one of Netflix’s latest releases in that department: Let It Snow!

The Plot:

This romantic Christmas Comedy is an adaptation of the book of the same name by Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle. It tells a few different tales, so here we go: there are the old friends Tobin and Duke who might or might not have a thing for each other, there’s Julie who runs into a famous singer on the train and hangs out with him for the day, and finally there’s a wafflehouse with a lot of stuff going on…

The Rating:

I’ll be upfront, I had pretty low expectations for this one. Netflix dumped the trailer on me and it looked cheesy a f but in the name of sciences/reviews, I decided to give it a shot.

Well, it wasn’t that bad! Turns out, Let It Snow is actually a cute little flick that is pretty decent and enjoyable. I wouldn’t watch it a second time and it didn’t leave much of an impression, but it was nice while it lasted.

The Plot:
The final battle is drawing nearer. In the quest to bring Levana’s gruesome rule to an end, our heroes enlist a new ally: princess Winter. Levana’s stepdaughter has every cause to support the rebellion, and so joins our beloved team.
But will they be able to make it to Luna and prevent Kai’s and Levana’s wedding? And far more important: will Selene be queen?

 

The Rating:
I’ve mentioned it before but let me point out again how hard it is to pull off a fairy-tale retelling without making it feel like a cheap and unoriginal copy. Marissa Meyer certainly did a great job as she had already proved with the first three installments of The Lunar Chronicles. So was both excited and set to get to the final book, Winter which is loosely based on the fairy-tale Snow White.
Let’s get down to it! First of all, let me point out that the final part is absolutely fascinating and Meyer will have you holding your breath several times throughout the book. She came with many unexpected plot twists. Believe me, Winter has many surprises for you in store! Continue reading
