Happy First Weekend of Fall, Everyone!

It's really beginning to feel more and more like autumn here in the Midwest. The leaves are still mostly green on our trees, but I'm spotting a few golden ones here and there. However, the fields around our family farm are ready and the combine started up yesterday - it's officially Fall Harvest!

Hope you all enjoy the new movies. I'm really looking forward to "JL Family Ranch: The Wedding Gift." The first movie was filled with mystery and intrigue; I'm hoping the second one will resolve previous disputes.

*Please Note: I have not pre-screened these new movies, but based on the previews we've been given, thus far, I am anticipating they will be family-friendly.

Have a nice weekend...

Blessings, Net

3 Months Until Christmas Eve & Christmas Day!

Lacey Chabert - Hallmark Crown Media

On this September 24th & 25th, 
as we're celebrating 3 months 'til Christmas Eve 
and Christmas Day, 
we can watch these two classic Christmas movies (see below) 
& Mark the 25th one last time 
before Christmas TV Movies 
begin next month on October 23rd!

The Miracles of Christmas
"Thursday Night Feature"
airing September 24th
on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is...

Storyline via Hallmark: Corey Calvin dreamed of being a theater director in the city but that meant abandoning her late father’s antiques shop in her small hometown as well as leaving the local Christmas Pageant as director. When LA hunk Ryder Donnelly visits her shop, more than Christmas lights twinkle and their affection grows. A surprise gift from Ryder convinces Corey to attend a holiday soiree at the Donnelly estate. When Corey sees Ryder at her Christmas Pageant, she reaches a crossroads. Does she owe it to her dad’s memory to stay in Harmony or owe it to her heart and finally listen when love calls?


The "Countdown to Christmas"
"Friday Night Feature"
airing September 25th
on the Hallmark Channel is...

Storyline via Hallmark: Angela, an American tour guide living in Rome, meets Oliver, an American business executive who is lost and late for an important meeting on his first day there. Angela helps him, but soon finds herself playing a central role in Oliver’s business deal, as the company owner will only sell to someone who understands the ways of Italy. Oliver hires Angela as his personal tour guide but gets far more than he bargained for, as a romance blooms between them amidst the backdrop of Rome at Christmastime and he must learn that life and business work differently in Italy.

Here at "It's a Wonderful Movie" we highlight every 25th day of the month - TOGETHER! - as we Countdown to Christmas! You can also join along!

For all of you Christmas movie fans who wish to participate, simply pick something Christmassy to watch 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.) Then, please share in comments below your Christmas choice for the day!

Will you watch one of the Hallmark Christmas movies airing this week or will you choose something else to honor the 25th?

MY *Mark the 25th* PICK:

Of the two movies Hallmark is airing this week, "Christmas in Rome," starring Lacey Chabert, is my pick! Over the weekend, I plan to also watch "A Godwink Christmas: Meant for Love." I just love that heartwarming movie. May we all start to look for more *Godwink* moments in our lives today!

Please be sure to share
your Christmas movie pick in comments below.

🎄 Hallmark's Countdown to Christmas & Miracles of Christmas 2020 🎄

images: Hallmark Crown Media

The Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries are getting ready to spread Christmas Cheer - beginning October 23rd. Through EW - Hallmark just announced nearly all of their 40 New Christmas movies coming in 2020.

I am personally excited about many of these NEW PAIRINGS

"If I Only Had Christmas" will star one of my favorites, Candace Cameron Bure ("Christmas Town"), along with Warren Christie, who I just love in the Hallmark classic, "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year." I can't wait to see these two together! Candace has shared that her new holiday film will have a 'Wizard of Oz' theme, so I'm looking forward to seeing how that story is mixed into this new Christmas movie! Will there be ruby slippers, a yellow brick road, and (please no!) scary flying monkeys??? All I can say is... "There's no place like home... there's no place like home..."

Another pairing I was excited to see, was Jill Wagner and Lucas Bryant, who I just love and will be starring together in "The Angel Tree!" Doesn't that sound so sweet? Plus, Brooke D’Orsay and Sam Page sound ideal together for "A Godwink Christmas: First Loves, Second Chances" and it's no secret that Jen Lilley and Trevor Donovan will be starring together in USS Christmas, but I still love hearing more and more about this Patriotic movie that honors our military!

I was also thrilled to officially see these actors who have previously worked together - are doing so again...

A Bright and Merry Christmas
Starring: Alison Sweeney and Marc Blucas
(Who previously starred together in "The Irresistible Blueberry Farm")

Christmas Waltz
Starring: Lacey Chabert, Will Kemp
(Who previously starred together in "Love, Romance, and Chocolate")

A Glenbrooke Christmas
Starring: Autumn Reeser and Antonio Cupo
(Who previously starred together in "Love at the Thanksgiving Day Parade" and "I Do, I Do, I Do")

Now, please know and beware... there are a couple movies I won't be promoting due to my own personal faith and beliefs, because these movies include same sex couples. Those movies are "The Christmas House" and "A Christmas Tree Grows in Brooklyn." There may be others, but I am currently only aware of these two. It saddens me to see the direction Hallmark is taking, leaving behind those of us of faith. They want to be diverse and include everyone, well, this does not include me and my family. I am very disappointed in Hallmark over this issue, and I know other viewers feel the same. We will have to be very careful on what we choose to watch this year.

Lacey Chabert ("Christmas in Rome") will not only be starring in the movie, "Christmas Waltz" on the Hallmark Channel, but she will also have a starring role in a new Christmas movie on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, in "Time for Us to Come Home for Christmas." Her co-star is Stephen Huszar of "A Home for the Holidays."

In the new Christmas movie, "A Nashville Christmas Carol," starring Jessy Schram and Wes Brown, we will find many great Country Music stars: Wynonna Judd, Sara Evans, RaeLynn, Kix Brooks and actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley ("The Christmas Train") also stars!

Now... there are a few movies left to fill, so we don't know quite, yet, every movie. I didn't see Kathie Lee Gifford's name with "A Godwink Christmas;" which leaves me wondering if she will be in this third installment? Other Hallmark regulars I don't see mentioned, yet, are: Kristoffer Polaha, Cindy Busby, Jodie Sweetin, Kevin McGarry, Jesse Metcalfe, Chad Michael Murray, Brittany Bristow, Ashley Newbrough, Kellie Martin, and many more! Stay tuned for future updates.

Candace Cameron Bure will host the 2020 Countdown to Christmas Preview Special on the Hallmark Channel, Saturday, October 17, 2020 and Jen Lilley & Trevor Donovan will host Hallmark Movies & Mysteries' 2020 Miracles of Christmas Preview Special on Sunday, October 18, 2020.

🎁 SEE HALLMARK's 2020 BIG CHRISTMAS MOVIE ANNOUNCEMENT with Sarah Drew on Home & Family! 🌟

image: Sarah Drew on Hallmark Channel's Home & Family - courtesy: Crown Media

Actress Sarah Drew ("Christmas in Vienna") will be making a SPECIAL, BIG CHRISTMAS MOVIE ANNOUNCEMENT - Wednesday, September 23, 2020 on Hallmark Channel's morning show, Home & Family!

I think we are all wondering - "What does this mean?"

Will Sarah be simply announcing the Christmas movies
we already know?

Will she be sharing a few more Christmas movies
we don't know, yet?

Could Sarah possibly be announcing that
"Christmas in Vienna" is the 2020
Hallmark Hall of Fame movie???

Will she share Christmas movies
from the Hallmark Channel?
(and someone else will share
Hallmark Movies & Mysteries later on?)

Or, will Sarah actually share
ALL 40 New Hallmark Christmas Movies??
(I'm highly doubting this theory,
but I just had to put it out there, just in case!)

We'll have to tune in Wednesday Morning to Home & Family
on the Hallmark Channel at 10am/9c. to find out!

Joyous Christmas Blessings, Everyone! Net

Which one of these Summer Nights MOVIES
did you think shined brightest?

Plus, which Movie Poster did you like best?

I'll go first...

MY FAVORITE MOVIE (of these two):
I enjoyed both "Romance in the Air" and "Love on Harbor Island" equally. Both movies were extra sweet and family-friendly. I liked the chemistry between Morgan Kohan and Marcus Rosner best in "Love on Harbor Island," but Cindy Busby, as always, was delightful and bubbly in "Romance in the Air." Both of these "Summer Nights" movies were an easy, breezy, light-hearted way to spend a hot Summer evening.

"Romance in the Air!" You can see such intense looks of love in both of their eyes! Plus, the colorful hot balloons simply carry my child like heart away!

Now, it's your turn - Please share your Favorite of these two movies in comments below...

Looking forward to hearing all your responses!
Blessings, Net

Are Y'all ready for Fall?

Here in the Midwest our temps have dropped down in the upper 40's - 50's at night! Brrrr! I've been grabbing for an extra blankie lately - so, ready or not, Summer is rapidly slipping away and Fall is on the way! (Are you getting chillier weather, too?) My heart certainly goes out to everyone who has been affected lately by the destructive hurricanes and storms in the South. Please be safe, everyone, and take care... 

The first day of Autumn is technically next Tuesday, September 22nd, but leave it to the Hallmark Channel to jump in early with their first Fall Harvest movie premiering this weekend!

In case you missed it, Lifetime released their full 2020 Christmas movie slate this week. SEE HERE.

Please know, I will NOT be promoting every Lifetime Christmas film. Unfortunately, with some exceptions, it will be difficult to know which movies are family-friendly, but I will be sharing here throughout the Christmas season if I learn of any movie of concern - and I absolutely appreciate those of you who take time to share information, too!

First off, I will NOT be promoting the Lifetime movie, "The Christmas Set Up," because the main storyline is a same sex romance. I wanted to be sure to warn you all of this right away and let you know this movie is featured in the new Lifetime Christmas movie promo. Most likely this commercial will run this Christmas season on the Lifetime network. Please beware of this if you decide to turn there.

One movie that looks good to me, so far, is a new Lifetime Military Christmas movie titled "A Welcome Home Christmas." It appears to have lots of promise. The movie stars Jana Kramer ("Christmas in Mississippi," "Love at First Bark") and Brandon Quinn ("Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses"), plus the movie co-stars Tim Reid, Charlene Tilton, and country singer, Craig Morgan. To see more on this movie and more Christmas movies coming to Lifetime this Christmas season - CLICK HERE.


I hope you all have a pleasant last weekend of Summer, and maybe, enjoy a movie or two!

I'm looking forward to the new Fall Harvest movie this weekend and both of the Christmas Sneak Peeks, plus the UPtv movie premiere!

*Please Note: I have not pre-screened these new movies, but based on the previews we've been given, thus far, I am anticipating they will be family-friendly. Let's hope so! 

Have a nice weekend, everyone...

Blessings, Net
