A journey filled with magic and wonder and amazing film reviews….
In late October, we had ‘Holidate,’ a rom-com starring Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey as the holiday film.
And then came “Operation Christmas Drop,” another rom-com based on a real U.S Air Force humanitarian mission starring Kat Graham and Alexander Ludwig.
And now we have “Dash & Lily,” already coming up this week.
The holiday season is officially here… At Least that’s how it looks like from our Netflix homepage, right?
Netflix is determined to make sure our holidays don’t go in vain. So, the streaming giant decided to drop a whole genre dedicated to only seasonal/holiday movies.

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey Netflix movie is filled with magic, wonder, and some really incredible music, this movie is bustling with holiday spirit! Along with some really emotional parts to its story, it has a catchy soundtrack that will definitely leave you jingly-jangly!
Because Jingle Jangle trailer has some really amazing actors of color in the lead roles.
Some people may not find this as a ‘wow’ factor to watch this movie, but you really gotta appreciate the impetus that drove Talbert into making this movie!
David E. Talbert was incredibly disappointed by a lack of diversity in some of his favorite movies from childhood, such as “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” and the original “Doctor Doolittle.”
So he decided to have a diverse cast in some of the major roles in “Jingle Jangle,” which is exactly what makes the movie stand out from the rest of the holiday pack.
He says in the film’s production notes, “As an artist and creator, I want to make a film that inspires and entertains. I just want to have it be more representative of the world. Something that says people of color can exist in a magical world.”
Moreover, the cast features some incredibly well-known talents including Forest Whitaker, Keegan-Michael Key and Phylicia Rashad, also the young newcomer Madalen Mills, whose smile is just enough to lure you into watching this movie.
Because it has an original Christmas soundtrack!
Aren’t you bored of that same-old Christmas music? Because we are!
Perhaps the most delightfully surprising aspect of Jingle Jangle is that it has an original and catchy Christmas soundtrack.
And why wouldn’t it be? When John Legend’s production company Get Lifted is behind the film! He contributed to its original songs and that also a brand new song, “This Day” performed by Usher and Kiana Ledé. The song could be nominated for the Best Original Song category—it’s that good!
Accompanied with some energetic dance sequences and strong vocal performances throughout Talbert’s work, the film is enjoyable and digestible despite its long run-time (2 hrs).
Because it has some really cool special effects!
The movie features really generous doses of enchanting slow-motion and special effects, which rightly gives you all the magical feel you wanted this holiday. Jingle Jangle perfectly outshines in the look department: from the cinematography and special effects to the costumes, everything has its heart in the right place!
