A simmering Christmas.
What NOT to watch this week. Our tv magazine rates shows and movies using a star system: one star is ok, four stars is best. They use another symbol for really bad movies: the red dot. It means "à zapper" (change the channel!). The editors often include comments about the movie that make me laugh.
This time the Americans teamed up with the Canadians to bring us Christmas-themed disaster of a disaster movie. Its original title: "The 12 Disasters of Christmas."
Les 12 plaies de l'apocalypse (The 12 plagues of the apocalypse). American/Canadian made-for-television movie directed by Stephen R. Monroe, 2010.
With Ed Quinn, Magda Apanowicz, and Holly Elissa.
► A black star appears in the sky on Christmas night and natural disasters follow.
A ridiculous plot orchestrated by an uninspired director and bad actors. A bomb.
For adults and children over 10.
