A Timeless Christmas – Countdown to Christmas

So this one looks pretty interesting! I feel like I’m about to be told a story–an actual story with a beginning, a middle and an end that has meat on the bones. Let’s be honest. Most Hallmark movies aren’t big on plot. And if they are, it’s usually the same tired plot: Someone is up…

Christmas in Vienna – Countdown to Christmas

This movie really makes you want to travel. But Covid…so… 😦 Christmas in Vienna is your regular, typical Hallmark Christmas movie. We’ve got the cute kids, the clean-cut, affluent couple, the insane Christmas decorations, and two people who awkwardly come together in the name of romance. Check, check and check. Quick rundown of the movie:…

Christmas with the Darlings – Countdown to Christmas

Let me just start by saying how disappointed I was that we couldn’t have this man as the hero (see below). I can spot an alpha hero at 500 yards, but Charles was only the hero’s brother, not the actual hero of the movie. I was sad. I was sad enough that I had to…

Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Sweater – Countdown to Christmas

When I originally downloaded Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas Premier list, this was the ONE Hallmark Christmas movie I was looking forward to this year. The title grabbed me right away, and I knew it would be hilarious. It DID NOT disappoint! We have our first five star, ladies and gents! LOL. Gents. Who’s kidding? Okay,…

On the 12th Date of Christmas – Countdown to Christmas

The title of the movie had me crossing my fingers. I’m all about humor (I cannot WAIT to watch Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Sweater!!), and this title leans a little toward what I like. And YAY… There’s not a royal or a cartoon castle in sight. The movie opens up in a…

One Royal Holiday – Countdown to Christmas

Admittedly, my least favorite trope in Hallmark movies are royals. Any chick with a tiara is annoying as hell to me, and the way royals are portrayed in these movies is laughable–so this movie wasn’t exactly set up to be on my favorite list, that’s for sure. I mean, it might work better if we…

Chateau Christmas – Countdown to Christmas

I really hate to write a bad review for a movie that had a storyline wrapped around a woman getting a bad review, but it is what it is. Bottom line: I was barely able to get through this movie. It had all the holiday decorations you’d expect in a Hallmark Christmas movie, all the…

Jingle Bell Bride – Countdown to Christmas

Small town romantic tropes everywhere! So, I’m a huge fan of the Hallmark channel. The second my husband leaves for work I turn off the news (I think I’m too delicate for that crap anymore) and I turn on my ‘safe space.’ I have the Hallmark channel on in the background all day long. I…
