Joyful tidings

Personally was not the biggest of fans of the previous two 'Christmas in Evergreen' films, which is not going to be popular opinion. They are certainly not terrible, but neither are they great in my view. Hallmark did far worse than the whole 'Christmas in Evergreen' series, but they also did better. While not being that excited over the premise, the cast consisting of some Hallmark regulars have been good in other things and Hallmark have done some surprisingly decent sequels.

'Christmas in Evergreen: Tidings of Joy' is a decent follow up and of the three films in the series at this point it gets my vote as the best of the three. It is not one of the best Hallmark Christmas films, but it is also far from being one of the worst. 'Christmas in Evergreen: Tidings of Joy' is a pleasant and more than serviceable enough diversion and has a lot to like, providing that you don't expect too much, but it doesn't fit my definition of great.

It has more good than bad though. The production values are attractive, especially the scenery which is quite picturesque. Some of the soundtrack is pleasantly nostalgic and is less overscored than most Hallmark Christmas films. The Carrie Underwood song was a nice touch. The script once it finds its groove is sweet and light-hearted, it also flows well. The story isn't perfect, but it has a warm heart, doesn't take itself too seriously and has a genuine charm to it. The idea is a great one and it's not wasted or confused (the film could have done more with it though).

Did feel that generally the characters were worth engaging with and caring about, good to see lead characters that had personality while not having negative traits overdone. Have seen the latter happening a lot recently and it is annoying and alienating when it happens. The acting is better than average, with both leads Maggie Lawson and Paul Greene being likeable (particularly Greene). Good to see the film attempt, and succeed, with continuity by having Ashley Williams and Jill Wagner in supporting roles. Rukiya Bernard has fun with her role without overdoing it.

However, the film does get off to a somewhat dull and routine start complete with too much forced dialogue. Would have liked more chemistry between the leads, it is there and they look at ease with each at least but it doesn't fully connect or feel fully fleshed out and the same goes with the relationship development.

While liking enough of the story, it's not flawlessly executed with the final third having too many conveniences and recycled cliches. The ending felt too neat and hasty.

Overall, not great but decent. 6/10.

Continues the downward trajectory of this series

A much less interesting film all in all, not that the preceding two are all that good anyway.

'Christmas In Evergreen: Tidings of Joy' continues the downward trajectory of this series, with an even more plain and unsatisfying festive story - at least to me, of course. In this 2019 sequel you get not one, not two but three cheesy love stories - all of which are, unfortunately, dull as ditchwater.

Maggie Lawson (Katie) and Paul Greene (Ben) give the weakest lead performances yet, though at least some sort of continuity continues with Ashley Williams and Jill Wagner reprising their roles - albeit minorly. The plot to this didn't hit me at all, the time capsule idea is solid but didn't mean as much as it could've.

Three films deep and this made-for-TV series may not have created a good watch, but they are yet to produce an absolutely terrible film - so I guess that's a positive?
