    One of my plants is dying but there is still 1 twig standing upright so my brain went

    *Gandalf voice* Our hope now lies with one little twig

    So I have decided to name the plant Frodo

    #it is not my fault it is dying #someone else was supposed to care for them during christmasbreak #and apparantly gave it too little water #my other plants are fine tho #also i have wanted to name my plants but i can never come up with something I like #so while it is my youngest plant he is the first one to have a name

    Christmas Break-In (2018)

    Somewhere, a child will grow up with Christmas Break-In. It will become their favorite holiday movie. Then, they will see Home Alone and have their world rocked. This is a shameless rip-off.

    On the last day before Christmas break, young Izzy (Cameron Seely) is forgotten at school by her parents (Denise Richards and Sean O’Bryan). She has a great time eating the cafeteria sweets, playing guitar as loud as she wants to, and goofing around. Then, a trio of thieves - Barbi (Katrina Begin), Rico (Douglas Spain), and Ned (Jake Van Wagoner) - decide to hide inside the “empty building” to avoid detection from the police. Now it’s up to Izzy to ensure they don’t get away.

    A little kid facing off alone against a group of bumbling thieves with cobbled-together traps because they’ve been left alone over Christmas? This is obviously Home Alone. The difference is you could stretch your imagination to buy the farfetched scenario thirty years ago. In 2018? it makes no sense. Even if Izzy doesn’t have her cellphone with her, even if the phone lines are down, even if the internet connection is down (it must be, even though she never even tries to jump on a computer), her parents have their phones; they should be able to contact SOMEONE to go get Izzy. Your mind immediately rejects the setup but this movie’s just getting started. For us to get to the face-off between Izzy and the crooks, Christmas Break-In has to jump through a half-dozen hoops. Her parents have to be the stupidest, most neglectful adults you’ve ever seen. Both of them forget to pick up their daughter despite “3 o’clock” being written on the back of their hands, and both working in the same office (a building which must be hours away from the school based on the changing daylight as they start driving). The Wet Bandit wannabees are just as useless. They’re on the run because they’ve stolen… the change from a Salvation Army. How much could two bags of jingling coins really be worth? They couldn’t have robbed a bank instead? Driving around in an ice cream truck (which they’re shocked to discover plays music as it drives, despite having driven to the crime scene in the same vehicle), they’re easily tricked into believing in ghosts and pose little threat to a little girl.

    With no character arc for our heroine and relatively few “traps” to apprehend the villains, the story is padded out with parental foolishness. It’s a lot of bad slapstick and an encounter with a man that’s clearly Santa Claus (James Robert Miller) which goes nowhere. Then there’s what could generously be called a side plot with her brother. He gets fed up waiting for his idiot parents and decides to take it upon himself to rescue Izzy. Finally, there’s Ray (Danny Glover) the school janitor. He’s been teaching Izzy to play the electric guitar - yet another character from the Macaulay Culkin franchise slightly tweaked. Nothing is original.

    That’s the biggest problem with this movie. It isn’t the unconvincing performances, the awful writing, or consistently unfunny comedy; it’s the lack of anything new. If you've seen Home Alone, you could write this plot in your sleep. If you haven't, you'll reject it outright as contrived and ridiculous. Christmas Break-In is cheap and stupid but if you decide to watch it, there are outtakes/bloopers during the end credits you might as well stick around for. (December 13, 2020)

    Curled up with a good book never felt so comfortable… although she can’t understand as I read out loud, she enjoys the vibration of words as she lays on my chest… we’re both are heavily rewarded. #readingtoyourdog #thealabastergirl #coonhoundsofinstagram #christmasbreak (at Midtown) https://www.instagram.com/p/CX_xhx4FQWU/?utm_medium=tumblr

    Happy Holidays

    Happy Holidays, everyone!

    I’ll be on break until (probably) the New Year. School starts in January, but hopefully I’ll have plenty of time to keep up with the queue. 

    I hope everyone enjoys the winter break.
