Movie Reviews

Perfect for Christmas parties
S. Fennell | Somewhere out there.....beneath the pale moon ligh | 11/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At first this may seem like a silly idea for a video, and to be honest, I bought a copy mainly out of curiosity. After giving it a chance, though, I found it to be very enjoyable, and a lovely tape to have running in the background for Christmas parties, or anytime you'd like to add some holiday cheer to your living room. I disagree with the former reviewer who seemed to think that the same 4 houses were being shown over and over again. Yes, there is SOME repetition of images, but c'mon, the video is an HOUR long, and I don't think most people are going to sit down and devote their complete attention to something of this nature. My only complaint of this production is the inclusion of a Willie Nelson vocal on the soundtrack to an otherwise almost-instrumental score,(except for Mahalia Jackson's classic vocals on "Silent Night"), but this is more a personal preference than anything else. It just seems a little out of place of me. The orchestrations are very well done too, much better than other tapes of this kind that I have seen on the market. Yeah, this will most likley go back on the shelf come January 1st, but in the meantime, it's a nice mood-enhancer."
Snowless and boring

"This disc was a majoy letdown. Not only did it seem like I was being taken around the same house and neighborhood (just from different angles and distances) but there was NO snow anywhere! No snow!!! Sorry...I'm from New England, and the light displays on grassy and leafy yards just don't emit that warm, colorful, reflective glow as on snow. The Christmas spirit was definitely lacking on this disc. One reviewer hit it on the head by saying "...but if you play this DVD while decorating your tree or opening gifts, only a Grinch would dare to complain." EXACTLY!!! As long as you DON'T watch it, it's decent (except for the Willie Nelson song...UGH!!!). So, tell me...why not just buy a MUSIC CD instead??? I feel Sights and Sounds of Christmas FAR exceeds this DVD on every level."

"This tape is one of the silliest tapes I have seen. But I would be a liar if I said I didn't watch it beginning to end. From houses that are overly decorated to boats with giant Santas, it was a perfect tape to play as our family was opening presents on Christmas morning. Filled with holiday songs, it's a mood tape worthy of being in any stocking:)"

"I read reviews where people were dissapointed by the lack of snow in the video. But being from Southern California...I wouldn't even have noticed. I think thie video is really cute. I love watching it. AND...I like the Willie Nelson song!!!"
