*EDIT: It's October, so I'm going to warn you-don't trust Christmas Me. She shows up November 1st without a hint of the cynicism and critical eye I have the rest of the year. She's sappy and sentimental. Don't trust her ratings. To be safe, don't consider watching anything about Christmas she rates under seven stars.*
I love Christmas, and I shed any Grinchy critical spirit if mistletoe and snow are involved. My ratings are 10 Stars, Excellent; 9 Stars, Almost Perfect; 8 Stars, Good; 7 Stars, Above Average Hallmark Quality; 6 Stars, Average Hallmark Quality; 5 Stars, Simply Okay; 4 Stars, Wouldn't Re-watch Unless Desperate for Christmas; 3 Stars, Never Going to be Desperate Enough to Re-watch; 2 Stars, Repugnant; and 1 Star, Bad Santa Bad. My ratings are based on how well the film captures the spirit of Christmas and has less to do with cinematic values or acting qualities.
