Christmas happens to be right around the corner and a lot of Christmas films have recently been released. Grab some hot chocolate, some snacks, and get comfortable to binge watch these new holiday movies.
One particular Christmas movie that has recently been released on Netflix is called Love Hard, starring Nina Dobrev. It was released on November 5th, 2021. Love Hard is like any cliche Christmas movie where it’s the same story all over again. In this movie, an aspiring journalist meets her perfect match on an online dating app. Later, she travels 3,000 miles to surprise the guy for Christmas only to find out he wasn’t who she had been expecting. You’ll have to watch the movie to find out who Dobrev ends up with, but the movie provides all the right holiday feels. It currently has a 54% on the Tomatometer and a 93% Audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Love Hard seemed like an interesting movie and since every holiday I look forward to seeing new festive movies come out, I decided to give this one a try. There were quite a few times where I lost interest in watching the story. I found myself often pausing the movie, distracted by my phone. I would eventually refocus and continue it, but this pausing cycle continued until I finished it. I honestly wasn’t as satisfied with the movie because I found the plot and characters very predictable and cliche. My rating for it would be a 6 out of 10. I would recommend this movie to someone who enjoys cheesy holidays movies (hey, no judgement!). You can watch Love Hard with friends and family and feel that holiday joy of this season.
