Have known for some time now they were make another sequel to A Christmas Story,  Which happens to be my all time favourite movie.  Back in January (2022) we learned what it will called A Christmas Story Christmas.   Have some good news to share. They put out a teaser video, which you can see > here below.  At the end they give a date, November 17, 20022.   The sad part is it will only be on HBO Max.  Going to keep an eye out to see if it will be on Blu-ray.

A Christmas Story Christmas

It might be a bit last or really early depending on how you look at it.  My all time favourite movie, A Christmas Story, is getting a real sequel.  There have been other sequels and spin offs.  Like a Summer Story, A Christmas Story Live and A Christmas Story 2.  What is interesting about his new one called, A Christmas Story Christmas, is that the main actor who played Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) is coming back.  According to IMDB the plot is, “Follows Ralphie, now adult, who returns to the house on Cleveland street to give his kids a magical Christmas like the one he had as a child, reconnecting with childhood friends, and reconciling the passing of his Old Man.”  Will be keeping my eye on this.  It could be really great.

A Christmas Story 2 Review

Had to check out A Christmas Story 2.   While it will not be a classic or a must watch every year it is not as terrible as one might think.  Not great but not terrible.  There is some charm and laughs.  But no were close to the original.  One good thing about this movie is the story.   It surprised me a bit.  Thinking it would go down a path seen in many other family movies have beaten to death but it did not.  Of course it will have a feel good ending but it did it in a better way than movies in the genres.  Oh there is another bright spot the kid that plays Randy does a great job.  Has some of the best lines in the movie.

By all means don’t go out and buy this.  May be give it a rent or wait for it to come on tv.  Doesn’t hold a candle to the best movie ever, A Christmas Story.  But it is not completely terrible.

AChristmasStory2Caught a glimpse of a TV add that caught my eye.  It kind of looked like A Christmas Story but newer.  After looking it up.  Turns out they made a sequel to my all time favourite movie.   It is called A Christmas Story 2.  They are billing as the official sequel.  But after watching the trailer > here and below.  I am not sure what to make of it.  First off it looks cheap low budget cash grab.  This is one movie that should not have a remake or a sequel is A Christmas Story.   Will check this out but there is no way it will close to how awesome the first one is.
