What do you mean there are no more new Hallmark Christmas movies? That’s right, friends. We’ve reached that point in the calendar when all the new holiday movies have been aired. So what do we watch now?
Well, don’t despair! I’m here with Alonso Duralde, holiday movie expert, to help!
Alonso is a film critic, podcaster, and author. He’s the film reviews editor for The Wrap, co-host of several movie-related podcasts including Linoleum Knife, Maximum Film, Breakfast All Day, A Film and a Movie, and my favorite, Deck the Hallmark. He’s also the author of Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas and co-author of I’ll Be Home for Christmas Movies. What I’m saying is that he knows movies, and he was kind enough to join me on The Couch to share his expertise.
And he didn’t even mock me . . . much . . . for my own lack of classic movies expertise.
Before we get started, if you’ve been missing my reviews of this year’s new holiday movies, they do exist! This year’s review episodes, where I’ve been joined by friends of the show Anna Rendell, Emily Humphries, Dorina Gilmore, Jen Babakhan, Tori Rask, and Latasha Ferguson, are over on Patreon. So give yourself a Christmas present and join the Patreon community! You’ll get all those review episodes, plus monthly bonus episodes, an exclusive monthly movie watch party, a monthly What to Watch Guide, access to every download in my resource library, and more! Head over to marycarver.com/patreon to join us!
All right, let’s get started.
