The Christmas Chronicles (2018)

I didn't know what to expect going into this film other than the trailer being decent. However, by the end of it, I was happy that I saw it. In particular, I wasn't the happiest this holiday season and the film helped put me in a better mood.

Kate (Darby Camp)

In general, the movie incorporates a lot of mythology pertaining to Santa Claus, but with plenty of twists to keep the viewer on his/her toes.

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 99% match, the highest match on My List. I decided to give the movie a thumbs up.

Interesting. But if there were an extra present from Santa, wouldn't the parents have wondered where it came from?
No way Santa would just park his sleigh there like that, haha.

Teddy (Judah Lewis) and Santa Claus (Kurt Russell)

Also, the time she saw Santa in their house was long versus the time it took him to hop from house to house.
Wow. That was a lot of action.
Hahaha. "How do you think I can [...]." "Pilates?"
Holy crap. The naughty list for life.
"I speak English you moron."
She ripped up a Mickey Mantle card!!!
"Sleigh bells. Are you listening?"

Mina (Jessica Lowe), one of Santa's Elves

I keep trying to remember who the one cop is, but I can't. [Ah! It's Lamorne Morris from New Girl]
Teddy getting riled up is touching. Brings a tear to my eye.
Great moment when he dodges the train.
Ha. Ha. Ha. She spoke Elvish.
"He's checking it twice."
That ornament gift...
It's a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, The Grinch.
