Ruby’s Place (the classy family-friendly nightspot that once lit the night sky in the tiny fictional town of Sullivan, Missouri) is no more—closed for decades—but that doesn’t keep those who once shared an eggnog or plate of homemade marshmallows from remembering the tinsel-wrapped moments Ruby’s supplied come Christmas.

On a snowy holiday evening, feeling a bit down on her luck, a middle-aged Angela finds herself back at Ruby’s, staring through its foggy, grimy window to remember the Christmases she spent there with her favorite aunt as a child. Could the best Christmas present of all simply be spending one last moment with that special loved one, in a place where memories were born?

At Ruby’s, it seems, the “spirits” are not confined to just the dusty liquors behind the bar, and such a Christmas wish might not be made in vain.

My review for Feral


REVIEW:
I'm in the mood for Christmas stories!
I liked this one, and then again, I didn't.
I loved the magical element to it, with the people appearing in the bar. What I didn't like is not understanding why the element was even added the way it was. The techings could have still been had just by making them memories and not trying to make the magical events so real. I wasn't feeling those transitions at all.
I liked the moral of the story though. It is all about a Christmas miracle of sorts.
Just not my favorite by this author.


2.5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
