The Nutcracker and the Four Realms has all the elements of an earnest holiday movie with family-friendly fun, but is less than the sum of its parts.
Molly Freeman is a News Editor for Screen Rant. She writes and edits news, reviews TV and movies, writes features, conducts interviews, and covers the musical crossover beat for Screen Rant.
A graduate of Ithaca College’s Journalism program, Molly grew up wanting to be a writer and went into entertainment journalism so as to put to good use all that time she spent binge-watching How I Met Your Mother, Supernatural, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer in college. She enjoys everything from superhero TV and musicals to schlocky b-horror movies and slick action films.
Beyond that, Molly reads far too many young adult novels, takes too many photos of her dog, and gets too invested in hockey (specifically, the New York Rangers). She believes in the Oxford comma, typically shows up 15 minutes early with Starbucks, and uses more emoji than are really necessary.
