Cocktails and Movies Take Out Theater: “A Midnight Clear”

by Tim Barley

One of the most overlooked Christmas films is this week’s “Take Out Theater” selection

cocktails and movies A-Midnight-ClearWar movies very rarely have anything to do with Christmas. It’s a fact. And, unfortunately, this movie has been criminally overlooked by audiences, even when it was released. It might have been the fact that it was released in April of 1992 or that it was rated R (today, this movie would have been rated PG-13). But, the mystery remains why this movie, with a superb cast and a beautiful message about warmth, human understanding and the power of the shared holiday of Christmas can break through even the horrors of war. To this day, it still holds an 86% freshness rating at Rotten Tomatoes and when you ask those who have seen it they like, they’ll tell you it’s one of their favorite “Christmas” movies. Today’s Take Out Theater selection is “A Midnight Clear.”
