movie thoughts

IceSculptureChristmas-Poster2

Ice Sculpture Christmas

Premiered- Saturday, November 7th, Hallmark Channel

Starring- Rachel Boston

This was a nice Christmas movie. It was one of those Hallmark Christmas movies, as both my dad and my husband pointed out to me, that’s not a very Christmassy Christmas move, just a regular story line held at Christmastime. However it was an interesting story line anyway and you even learn a little bit about Ice Sculpting.

Rachel Boston was the female lead in the film. I have enjoyed watching her very much in the made for t.v movies I have seen her in before, especially “Holiday High School Reunion.” Most of her roles have portrayed her as a very happy and confident young woman trying to navigate her way through the path life is setting out for her. I love her spirit in these roles and wonder what she is like in real life. Her characters often seem like someone I’d love to be friends with.

Overall, there is not that much to talk about where this Christmas film is concerned. I could describe everything in these two words, it was nice and very sweet. It has a very happy ending too (big shocker).

Warning- we have a little bit of mean girl drama, with an ambitious Sous-chief who doesn’t mind using deceit, manipulation and sabotage to get to the top.

What did you think of this movie?

Bonus Question

Which of the following ice sculptures were the final sculpture carved by the male and female lead of the Hallmark 2015 Christmas movie “Ice Sculpture Christmas?”

Charming Christmas

Charming-Christmas-Hallmark-Poster-Book-Movie-

Premiered- Sunday, November 8th, Hallmark Channel

Starring- Julie Benz, David Sutcliffe

I just can’t believe how challenging I am finding it to think up some words to share my thoughts about this one. Some Hallmark movies are very hard to review for me because sometimes nothing much stands out in the story line for me worth talking about. I can review most of these movies by saying it was nice, it was sweet, it was intentionally heartfelt, it was romantic, etc.

It is not very often I get to say it was exciting, it was funny, these characters had great chemistry, I really like this character, this is my favorite scene and stuff like that.

This was one of those Hallmark Christmas movies that was just nice to watch, but not one I’d want to add to my movie collection or even really need to watch again. Don’t get me wrong I did not hate it. I know what to expect from a Hallmark movie, most of the time it is just simple heartwarming, happy ending, heartfelt stuff, movies where your heart could feel safe to watch, in this day and age, safe, clean t.v is okay with me.

Then there are some that you’d just love forever, because it came together perfectly in more ways than one-story telling , characterization, actors, everything. As far as this one goes for me, it was just nice. I wonder what the book was like, it probably is way more interesting than the film.

Nevertheless, I’d like to hear your thoughts on “Charming Christmas.”
Bonus Question

In the Hallmark 2015 Christmas movie “Charming Christmas,” what did the female lead (Julie Benz) take to the Laundromat to be cleaned, when she first met the male lead (Daniel Sutcliffe)?

a.) Santa Claus suit    b.) a favorite red dress  c.) A Mrs.Claus dress  d.) Her favorite red coat

OneStarryChristmasPosterS3One Starry Christmas- Hallmark Channel- 2014

Starring- Sarah Carter and Damon Runyan

Most Hallmark movies are cliché, predictable, reused mixed-matched story lines and pretty basic in their story-telling and I don’t mean that in a negative way. Most of the time that’s okay with me, although every once a while a movie turns out to be too basic for me. I think that’s when the actors don’t add much quirk and pizzazz to their ordinary roles. Most Hallmark movies, watching them once is good enough for me. That’s why I appreciate that Hallmark keeps us well supplied with new ones all year long, especially at Christmas.

Then they are just some movies I absolutely love and would watch again and again, I’d even add that movie to my personal movie collection. One Starry Christmas, a 2014 Hallmark Christmas movie is definitely one of those movies.

Here’s  what I love about it-

1.) I love the story- this was interesting story-telling

2.) I love the chemistry between the two romantic leads – they made a great couple that you would root for to get together

3.) I loved the actors- I thought Sarah Carter was absolutely beautiful, she had a smile and spirit that lights up a whole scene, and Damon Runyan was an awesome cowboy, one you’d know would be loyal and take care of you if he gave you his heart.

4.) I thought this film just had alot of awesome characters with lots of fun noticeable quirks in it and everyone played their part very well. All the actors in this film did a great job portraying their characters.

5.) This film had plenty scenes and quotes to love and remember-it had dancing, singing, horseback riding, ice skating and so much more.

6.) It was funny too

So if haven’t seen this one yet. Be sure to look out for it on Hallmark channel at various times for the next two months.

Here are the next two showings on Hallmark Channel- Nov 21st (12 A.M & 10 A.M)

    I so want to watch the movies now! Only problem is I’m not sure I can get the Hallmark channel in England? We always love to watch our Christmas favourites but I am forever on the lookout for new good family friendly, uplifting films. Thanks for the recommend.

    Reading your blog post caused me to set my DVR to record several upcoming Hallmark movies. I am looking forward to watching Thanksgiving House.

    This is a fabulous find! I clicked through from Titus2Tuesday and I loved this post! Sadly, we don’t have cable so I can’t indulge in all of the fun, sappy, movies like I would love to. But this post is wonderful! I think it is nice to see another person enjoy Christmas on Hallmark as much as I do. Love this!
