So on Christmas Eve night, I usually watch a Christmas movie or two every year. This year, I decided to do a little something different by finally getting around to checking out “The Christmas Chronicles 1 & 2”, the Netflix exclusive Christmas movies which reunites real-life married couple Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn on the screen.
Obviously this wasn’t the first time Kurt and Goldie starred in movies together. Their first movie together was “Swing Shift” in 1984 and then of course, “Overboard” in 1987. The film “Overboard” was the film that made this power-couple huge stars in the film industry.
I watched both “Christmas Chronicles” on Netflix back to back last Friday night so I went on a binge watch, admittedly. hahaha… anyway, I was hooked to these two films from the start. Very good film-making on both of them too. Great acting by the entire cast, great writing… no complaints. Of course, Kurt Russell kills it and that man still got it obviously same with Goldie. Even though Goldie’s appearance was real short in the first movie ’cause it was just an introduction to Mrs. Claus but she’s throughout the entire second movie, though. I’ll have to say it was pretty freakin’ awesome seeing Kurt and Goldie together again on the screen.
Both films are entertaining as hell and they were both really funny too ’cause a lot of it was comedy for sure. Even though these two films had a lot of comedy in them, though, it was on a serious note…. both films had a lot of positivity and a lot of heart too.
We’ve had too many Santa movies over the years and most of them weren’t that good but finally we get something that’s really enjoyable. The first one is good but the second “Christmas Chronicles” is way better, though.
Will there be a third one? Probably. I hope so. Kurt Russell is still very talented, he’s like 69, almost 70 and he’s still killing it with his acting. That man can play anything that throws at him and over the years of his career, he has played pretty much everything even Elvis! Is there anything Kurt can’t do? I guess that’s one of the big reasons why Kurt is one of the most respected actors ’cause he’s so versatile.
You should check these movies out if you haven’t yet. You won’t be disappointed.
