Which HALLMARK CHANNEL "Countdown to Valentine's Day" MOVIE & "Unconditional Love" MOVIE - Did You *LOVE* Best???


images: Hallmark Crown Media

It's been such a busy time lately with new movie premieres and everything, and I've been longing to share this post..., but hopefully this delay in posting has enabled you all to see ALL the recent movies!

Hallmark officially premiered TWO NEW MOVIES as part of *Countdown to Valentine's Day*... Valentine in the Vineyard and The Story of Us. Technically, Love, Romance & Chocolate was not included in the Countdown to Valentine's Day movies, but since the storyline is based around the holiday, and since it premiered just a few days after Valentine's Day - I'm including it in this category, too!

Hallmark called the rest of the February movies - "Unconditional Love" movies - so I'm going to squeeze all three in-between movies in that category... Love on the Menu, Just Add Romance, and Love Under the Rainbow.


Please share "YOUR TAKE" on this recent block of Original TV movies in comments below by answering these Two Questions...


1. Which "Countdown to Valentine's Day" movie / "Unconditional Love" Movie - did you like/love the most?

2. Which "Countdown to Valentine's Day" movie / "Unconditional Love" Movie poster (above) do you like best?


Looking forward to hearing all your responses!

Blessings, Net

Join along and "Mark the 25th" at *It's a Wonderful Movie*!


Merry "Mark the 25th" Day of the Month, Everyone!


Here at "It's a Wonderful Movie" we highlight every 25th day of the month - as we countdown to Christmas! We started doing this last year, long before Hallmark started playing Christmas movies two nights of the week!

I so appreciate all the devoted Christmas movie watchers- who continue to join in every 25th!

For the huge Christmas movie fans who wish to join along, simply pick something Christmassy to watch today on the 25th! It can be a Christmas movie, cartoon, family sitcom or anything you like. (There's only one stipulation - it must be family friendly.) Please share in comments below your Christmas choice for the day!

On this day, March 25th, there are 274 days and so many hours & minutes - until December 25th, Christmas day!

My pick for this "Mark the 25th" is the UP Christmas movie "Paper Angels." This is an inspiring film - in which a struggling high school boy discovers a much needed friendship through basketball.

I thought this would be a great time to re-watch this movie during this March Madness basketball season! Also, don't forget to create your Merry Madness Bracket on Hallmark's web-site by 3pm PT./6pm ET. Thursday, March 28, 2019! You can make up to ten brackets - and a winner will be chosen to win $10,000!


Hallmark viewers will recognize one of the lead actresses in the movie - Josie Bissett, of "When Calls the Heart" and the "Wedding March" movies.

Paper Angels storyline: In Paper Angels, abused wife Lynn (Josie Bissett), leaves her alcoholic husband Darryl (Russell Porter), with her two kids, Thomas (Rustin Gresiuk) and Sara (Farryn Van Humbeck) and move to another town where she works as a waitress to make ends meet. In that same town, we meet Kevin (Matthew Settle), whose Marketing & Design company is on the brink of shutting down due to the economy. Plus, Kevin’s wife Jenny (Kendra Anderson) is in a difficult pregnancy with twins. Thomas starts a new school and becomes the target of a bully who is threatened by how well he plays basketball. Unable to join the high school team, Thomas goes to the community center where he meets Kevin and the two of them become unlikely friends through pickup basketball games. Little do they know the tremendous impact they will have on each other’s families this Christmas through The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program. Inspired by the hit holiday song by country star Jimmy Wayne and book by Wayne with Travis Thrasher.

The movie Paper Angels is available on DVD and Streaming!

Merry "Mark the 25th" Day, Everyone!
Please share your Christmas choice in comments below!

Joyful Blessings to you all, Net
