Christmas in Compton is a New Christmas Classic in my Library and will be in yours after seeing this EXCELLENT Film!
2 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After seeing the title of this film I was a bit apprehensive about watching another black film that would portray the black heritage and culture in the same way Hollywood has always been good at doing along with some well known black film companies.

But I have to say this has to be one of this years most heartfelt, culturally rounded, inspirational, funny and family friendly Christmas Movie.

Everyone and their family should get a chance to buy this DVD or go out and see this film with it's wonderful message or family, friends, community and the power of love and determination.

I know I will spread the word to everyone and after you see it I'm sure you will too!!

Also after reading the mission behind making this movie and others to come on www. brite idea ent . com (I think it is) you will understand what they call conscious filmmaking is all about and continue to support this type of filmmaking.

I'm a Fan for Life!

Merry Christmas 2012 and God Bless you all!
