Happy February 25th! Let's πŸŽ„Countdown to ChristmasπŸŽ„ Again - with Jill Wagner, Erin Krakow and More! 🌟 SEE HERE:


 πŸŽ„ Merry *Mark the 25th*! πŸŽ„




Happy February 25th, Everyone! Are YOU counting down to Christmas with us? Sure... it's a bit early for that, but if you've been following *It's a Wonderful Movie* for awhile then you know on each 25th day of the month we highlight the day as we Countdown to Christmas! February 25th marks 10 months until December 25th, Christmas day!

If you'd like to join along to celebrate the day - all you have to do is choose something Christmassy to watch TODAY! 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!

Since Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is playing their weekly Christmas movie on the 25th and because I happen to love this Christmas movie, I am choosing my pick to *Mark the 25th"...


Starring: Jill Wagner and Lucas Bryant

Storyline via Hallmark: A writer (Jill Wagner) seeks the identity of the person who helps grant wishes that are placed upon the angel tree, and in the process, reconnects with her childhood friend (Lucas Bryant).

My Review of "The Angel Tree":
There is something so pure and inspiring about this delightful story of giving. Immediately you find yourself caught up in the mystery of who the unidentified "angel" could be - who delivers gifts and grants wishes to their community each Christmas, based on the wishes placed at the town's outdoor Angel Tree. I personally loved the connection Jill Wagner and Lucas Bryant shared, they easily flowed together on screen and appeared to be friends from long ago, just like their characters - Rebecca McBride and Matthew Anderson. I loved Matthew's coffee shop, and the fact that his nephew, Owen, helped him out there. It was also sweet that Owen was staying with his Uncle as his mother was serving in the military. Throughout the movie, it was clever how Matthew and Owen kept coming up with cute names for various coffee flavors, but best of all... it was most fun to watch Rebecca (Jill Wagner) try to figure out who Angel is - so she can write an important article. I loved the magic, mystery, and wonder of it all!

Wild West Chronicles to Premiere on INSP this Spring...




Press Release via INSP:


INSP Sets Premiere Date
for Historical Docudrama Series
Wild West Chronicles

Inspired by the true tales of famous characters and unsung heroes of the American West, the series will make its exclusive television debut on Sunday, April 11th at 5:30PM ET.

(Indian Land, SC – February 24, 2021) General-entertainment network INSP, the leader in Western & Western-adjacent programming, has set the premiere date for Wild West Chronicles. The unique historical docudrama series, based on true stories of the old west, will premiere on Sunday, April 11th at 5:30PM ET. Craig Miller, VP of Original Unscripted Programming and Development for INSP, made the announcement.

Wild West Chronicles is a unique twist on the historical docudrama,” said Miller. “We didn’t want to do a typical docudrama with a bunch of talking-head experts, so we built a concept around a newspaper reporter who travels the frontier during the late 1800s to uncover the truth behind the wildest tales of the West. As he chases down stories, viewers meet notorious criminals, courageous lawmen, and everyday heroes of the Old West. With a diverse group of characters featured in the series, there is sure to be someone there for everyone to love or loathe, or both.”

The anthology series follows the legendary Bat Masterson, once a formidable gunslinger and lawman, after he trades his sheriff’s badge for a pen and becomes a newspaper reporter. In each episode, Masterson tracks down eyewitnesses who share their vivid memories of Wild Bill Hickok, Stagecoach Mary, Butch Cassidy, Bass Reeves, and other remarkable characters of the Old West. As they tell their stories, a bygone age of hardship and lawlessness is brought to life when fearless lawmen rode tall in the saddle and vicious criminals fought to escape justice.

The 15 episodes of Wild West Chronicles will air on INSP starting on Sunday, April 11th at 5:30PM ET

About INSP:

INSP is available nationwide to more than 70M households via Dish Network (channel 259), DirecTV (channel 364), Verizon FiOS (channel 286), AT&T U-verse (channel 564) and more than 2,800 cable systems. Click here to find INSP in your area. INSP provides a trusted viewing experience with a lineup of exclusive and original series, timeless Westerns, action-filled dramas, and films focused on adventure and heroic characters.

About MorningStar Entertainment:

Gary Tarpinian and Paninee Theeranuntawat created MorningStar Entertainment with the goal of producing high-quality Television Programing. Over the past 20 years, this Emmy Award winning Production Company has produced hundreds of hours of great Television Series and Specials for such esteemed US networks as Discovery, National Geographic, History, The CW Network, PBS, A&E, TLC, Lifetime, Travel, ESPN, Discovery Science, and many others.

🐎  🐎  🐎  🐎  🐎  🐎  🐎  🐎  🐎  🐎



Even though this is not a new movie, I thought many of you would be interested in this show - based on our love of When Calls the Heart and other period dramas.

INSP is a wonderful channel that shows family programming, like The Waltons and classic westerns, like Bonanza. It sounds like the Wild West Chronicles will be a fascinating series about the history of the old west.


Hope you enjoy it!

Blessings, Net

UPtv will be premiering NEW MOVIES on Sunday nights in March, beginning with "My Birthday Romance" starring Ali Cobrin and Jesse Hutch.

Also, look in March for the premieres of "Charm of Love" and "Love at Sunset Terrace!" See details on all of these movies below...




My Birthday Romance

Original Air Date: March 7, 2021

Story-line: Callie Fitzgerald is tired of her family fixing her up and questioning her single status. She is determined to find a pretend boyfriend for her 35th birthday party just so her family will leave her alone. What she didn’t expect was to actually fall for him.


Review:

🌞 "This is all very strange. The movie My Birthday Romance has been shown somewhere before. A while ago we were "Channel-hopping" and happened to come across this as it was just starting but when we saw the name Jesse Hutch decided to watch it. We forgot to note what Channel it was and haven't found it since! Now there's nothing new about the plot - we've seen this many times before in various guises but what elevated this was the interaction between Jesse and Ali Cobrin (whom I hadn't come across before) which was excellent and it moved along at a nice pace whuch kept your interest. Her brother was an interesting character too. It did go a bit pear-shaped in the final quarter but the actual ending was good and overall it was an above average movie. No problems as regards family frindly too." ~Anonymous



πŸŽ‚πŸŒžπŸŽ‚πŸŒžπŸŽ‚πŸŒžπŸŽ‚πŸŒžπŸŽ‚




Charm of Love

Original Air Date: March 14, 2021



Starring: Katrina Lynne Norman and Tilky Montgomery Jones

πŸŽ‚πŸŒžπŸŽ‚πŸŒžπŸŽ‚πŸŒžπŸŽ‚πŸŒžπŸŽ‚

Good Morning Christmas! - MOVIE REVIEWS:

πŸŽ„"I was looking forward to Good Morning Christmas because I know Marc and Alison are fantastic together, and it did not disappoint. Very cute, romantic, and festive. The characters' connection was palpable. I was grinning through the whole thing and rewatched the ending several times. Family friendly." ~ Amy Lama

πŸŽ„"I really, really liked "Good Morning, Christmas." Really cute, great story, couple had lots of charisma together and who wouldn't love to watch the "Bright and Mary!" show!" ~ Kathy

πŸŽ„It was great! Alison and Marc still have that chemistry that was so evident in The Irresistible Blueberry Farm. One of the better movies this year. I hope they will do more movies together. ~ Joyce

πŸŽ„"Good Morning, Christmas is another great movie. Marc and Alison are still perfect together. Want this DVD!" ~kitkat

πŸŽ„"Good Morning Christmas I love the unique story and the cute banters. I’m not a big fan of a love triangle usually so that’s the only thing that make this not in my top list personally. Alison and Marc were both wonderful in this and truly what I expected them to be, just like in their previous movie “Irresistible Blueberry Farm”." ~CH Mom

πŸŽ„"Good Morning Christmas The Irresistible Blueberry Farm is one of my all-time favourite Hallmark movies and when I saw this I wondered if they could possibly re-capture the amazing chemistry between Alison and Marc. Wow - did they just - it was absolutely off the scale. The banter between the two leads was hilarious, the plot was surprisingly original and although there were many of the usual Christmas scenarios - gingerbread housemaking, ice skating etc they were done with a certain irreverence which was refreshing and placed a new slant on them. Good secondary cast too - I particularly liked Matthew Dowden who played the part of the Deputy Mayor - although he spent a good deal of time with Melissa there was never any hint of anything romantic between them. He has played secondary roles in a few Hallmark movies now and I'd really love to see him land a lead role. And as so often is not the case they had a great ending which left you with such a warm glow as regards the romance. I did have one beef though which actually upset me to some degree I personally don't like proposals which are made in public - I feel they are something intimate and private but that's my problem of course. However to deliberately set up a live TV performance of a very private moment without permission was totally invasive and beyond the pale. This aside one of the top Christmas movies this season." ~Anonymous

πŸŽ„"Good Morning Christmas. I really liked this cute movie. Good chemistry between the leads. Keeper. Family friendly." ~~Jane

πŸŽ„"First of all, just seeing Alison Sweeney and Marc Blucas together again was pure magic! These two just lit up the screen! Like many others, I loved them originally in “The Irresistible Blueberry Farm” and while this movie was different than that, I still enjoyed it very much. The energy both Alison and Marc brought to their characters was electrifying. Since the two had worked together before in real life, it was easier to see these two in these roles as rivaling colleagues. I loved how as time went by - they began to see each other in a whole new light. It was nice to watch as they went ice skating and decorated the Christmas tree – how their normally competitive natures began to dissolve into having feelings for one another. I very much enjoyed this lighthearted, family friendly movie – it’s one I look forward to watching over and over again! Good Morning, Christmas! is very good!" ~Net



Five Star Christmas - MOVIE REVIEWS:

πŸŽ„"5 star Christmas was a wonderful departure from the usual plots. It really felt more of an ensemble script rather than a duet between leads. The film is very family friendly. They really purposed to make this a comedy and it shows. I laughed out loud more than once, and I'm a hard sell. The chemistry between the leads felt genuine as they are friends in real life. My only downside was there just isn't much room for the romance because all the cast gets a good amount of screen time. I would watch it again. Great film." ~ Marie B

πŸŽ„"Five Star Christmas should be fine for viewing by anyone." ~ Ashley

πŸŽ„"The worst (movie) was five star Christmas.i love bethany joy lens but it seemed all thrown together." ~ Anonymous

πŸŽ„"Five Star Christmas. This one was a lot of fun, I enjoyed it. Fantastic ensemble cast. I've not been the biggest fan of Bethany Joy Lenz, especially when she's over-acting (like she does in the very first scene of this movie); but when she finally settles into her role, she's very natural and realistic. I'm starting to really like her. This movie was kind of light on the romance, but I almost liked it better because of that -- less sappiness and more about family relationships. Not sure yet if I'd buy the dvd but this is definitely a keeper for the dvr. Family friendly." ~~Jane

πŸŽ„"Five Star Christmas with Bethany Joy Lenz and Victor Webster was cute. The beginning was somewhat confusing to me. Paula Shaw as the grandmother was so funny as the Russian guest. The actors worked well together. I have to commend Mr. Webster for "putting himself out there" and singing in one scene. He sang Elvis' Blue, Blue Christmas with the help of Ms. Lenz." ~ Namegirl

πŸŽ„"Five Star Christmas was a another favorite over the last week. I really enjoyed the focus on the whole cast and the characters felt more fleshed out than usual. Bethany & Victor did a great job and I found myself laughing out loud more than once." ~Kay

πŸŽ„"Five Star Christmas - I just love Bethany Joy Lenz. I wish there’s more chemistry but this movie was still cute to watch. I chuckled many times when they were pretending to be the guests of the inn. Loved the unique story." ~ CH Mom

Let it Snow!!! My Top 12 Snow Related Movies...


Winter Storm Uri arrived!

It SNOWED and it SNOWED all afternoon yesterday and into the early morning hours here in the Midwest. We received somewhere between 9 to 11 inches of snow, at least, and the snow drifts are even higher! Walking out to our barn was quite the feat during the storm - and once we turned around to head back to the house our previous tracks were completely gone. Unfortunately, it wasn't the pretty snowfall we typically see in the movies. No. No. No. It was a blistering, blizzard-like, fine blowing snow, with 20-30 miles of wind swirling it all around. It was definitely a day to stay inside and stay warm.

So... How is your weather? From watching the news and Weather Channel, I'm seeing reports of cold weather and power outages in Texas (where I have many family members), intense thunderstorms, sadly, went through North Carolina, and lots of severe weather, including snow and ice, across the United States. Wherever you are, I pray you are safe and warm, and being careful until conditions improve.

As I'm snowed in today and only essential travel is recommended, I thought I would create a list of 12 of my favorite snow related movies. It seems there are several circumstances in Christmas movies where people are often snowed-in and can't get out or home for the holidays. I thought I would mention my favorites here, along with a few from Winterfest, and please share yours in comments below! (It was hard for me to limit my list just to 12!)



TOP 12 SNOW-RELATED TV MOVIES:


12. One Winter Winter Weekend / One Winter Proposal



It's a fun skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobile riding weekend with Cara, Ben, Megan, and Sean - when the four are double-booked in the same lodge.

A third movie in this series is coming this spring with "One Perfect Wedding."

One Winter Winter Weekend / One Winter Proposal are available on DVD and streaming - Click Here.


11. Northpole



The snow in this movie is absolutely incredible! You can tell it is the real deal. The drifts and snow piles on the side of the road are incredibly high. Even though it's not actually the North Pole, it sure looks like it! It's also extra sweet to watch as Elf Clementine (Bailee Madison) tries to help Kevin (Max Charles) restore everyone's Christmas spirit!

Northpole is available on DVD and streaming - Click Here.


10. Debbie Macomber's Dashing Through The Snow



Ashley (Meghan Ory) is on her way home for Christmas and Dash (Andrew Walker) is on a secret mission. When these two share a ride together - it's quite the adventure!

Debbie Macomber's Dashing Through The Snow is available on DVD and streaming - Click Here.


9. Winter's Dream



Former professional skier Kat (Kristy Swanson) works with a young skiier and not only falls in love with coaching, but perhaps, the girl's father (Dean Cain), too! This movie is family friendly and fun. I love the scene near the end when the skiiers come down the hill at night holding lights - it is absolutely beautiful!

Winter's Dream is available on DVD and streaming - Click Here.


8. Winter in Vail



This chilly Winterfest movie is one that will truly warm your heart. Family friendly and delightful, you'll simply fall in love with Chelsea (played by Lacey Chabert) and Owen (played by Tyler Hynes) as they bring life to the town of Vail, Colorado with a new festival, which brings the community together and new visitors! Along the way, Chelsea must decide which path she most wants to take and which decision leads her ultimately home.

Winter in Vail is available on DVD and streaming - Click Here.


7. Snow Bride


Snow Bride is such a delightful rom-com with many twists and secrets! It's interesting to see what happens next when tabloid writer Greta Kaine is rescued in a snow storm by Ben Tannenhill (the son of a former, prominent Senator) and both try to hide their true identities!

Snow Bride is available to watch through streaming - Click Here.


6. Amazing Winter Romance



If you're looking for a Winterfest movie with real snow and a great wintery, chilly feel, with lots of fun action-packed activities and excitement, then this film is it! Perfect for all ages, "Amazing Winter Romance" includes sledding, a huge snow maze that is truly incredible and beautiful on screen, snowmobiling, snow plowing, and horse-back riding! Plus, there's an adorable little girl, a very cute dog, and a sweet romance! This movie is truly jam-packed with just about everything fun during the winter, minus the cold! My family thoroughly enjoyed every minute, mainly due to the joyful Jessy Schram ("Road to Christmas") and the delightful Marshall Williams ("When Hope Calls"), who are truly the perfect, ideal boy and girl next door. I found this movie to be "snow" much fun to watch and very sweet!

Amazing Winter Romance is available on DVD - Click Here.



5. When Calls the Heart: The Greatest Christmas Blessing



When Elizabeth, Abigail, and Rosemary go on a trip out of Hope Valley at Christmas, Elizabeth unexpectedly goes into labor as the three run into a blizzard of snow. Their car runs off the road - and somehow they are able to walk through the snow storm to an abandoned cabin, where Elizabeth gives birth to her baby boy, Jack. It's a beautiful scene as - Lee, Carson, and Bill (a sweet representation of the three wise men) set out to find them in the storm.

When Calls the Heart: The Greatest Christmas Blessing is available on DVD and streaming - Click Here.

Season 8 of "When Calls the Heart" begins this Sunday, February 21st, on the Hallmark Channel!


4. Winter Love Story



Portraying writers in "Winter Love Story," both Jen Lilley and Kevin McGarry make taking a road trip look like great fun - even in the middle of winter! Along the way, they both make snow angels, which is cute, and they take walks in the snow with his dog. Then, of course, they have to get warm by the fire and read a good book!

3. Snowed-Inn Christmas


I just adore this Lifetime Christmas movie with Betheny Joy Lenz & Andrew Walker! When Jenna and Kevin (writers who are competing for the same job) get snowed in together at a inn in Santa Claus, Indiana - it's a magical turn of events when these two rivals start to fall for one another, as they attempt to write their Christmas story and save the inn from closing.

2. Winter Castle



With this Winterfest movie set in an actual Winter Ice Castle, (brrrr!!!) everything about this movie was magical, whimsical, enchanting, and cold! You almost expected to see Elsa, Anna, and Olaf there, as it very much looked like a scene right out of Disney’s princess animated fairytale, ‘Frozen.’ There's also an incredibly fun indoor slide, a sleigh ride and cross country skiing. You'll want to cozy up in your favorite blanket and enjoy this N-ICE Hallmark movie! It's perfect for family viewing!

1. Let it Snow



How could I not end the list with Candace Cameron Bure and Jesse Hutch in "Let it Snow," which includes sledding, skiing, a snowball fight, and ice fishing! Will Candace's character, Stephanie, and her father end up buying Snow Valley and change everything about it, or will they both come to love the charm of the place and keep it just the way it is? Even though it's the middle of winter, there's something so warm and inviting about this special lodge where visitors (like family) return year after year to share the holidays together. There's even a beautiful snowfall just before the credits roll.

Take care, everyone, and be safe out there!

My Movie Review of "The Lost Valentine":
(May contain a few early spoilers, but not the ending.)

"The Lost Valentine" is a beautiful touching reminder of how precious love is!

THANK YOU to all of our Service Men and Women - past and present. GOD Bless You All!

The World War II generation is a lovely setting for the love story of Neil and Caroline. As Neil is leaving with the Navy on a train - Caroline rushes to find him - and hands him a red envelope. Inside Neil finds a sweet Red Valentine shaped as a heart... written on it is a message telling him to keep it close to his heart and bring it home to her.

Betty White portrays Caroline, as an older woman now - recalling her love story with Neil, to Susan (Jennifer Love Hewitt), a TV Reporter. Neil was reported as Missing in Action those many years ago- and since that time, Caroline has returned every year on Valentine's Day to the train station to wait for him.

While Susan is following Caroline and Neil's love story - she is realizing herself, the meaning of true love. Her boyfriend, a nature photographer, has just proposed, and taken off again on another excursion halfway around the world. He often places his own needs and pleasures ahead of hers. Lucas, Caroline's grandson (Sean Faris), is altogether different. As a physical therapist, he is always helping others... as well, as being there for his grandmother. Susan instantly finds herself drawn to Lucas... and he to her.

This movie is a beautiful story of lasting love til the very end.

Tissues absolutely needed!


See or Skip:

See! "The Lost Valentine" is timeless love story!

*NOTE: There is nothing offensive in this movie, except there is one scene near the end I will caution for children, depicting war violence. This movie probably would not be entertaining for most younger viewers, anyway. In my opinion, "The Lost Valentine" is better suited for a mature pre-teen to adult audience - and could be used as a great historical lesson. The feedback I received after this film originally aired was incredible, so I know many viewers enjoyed this movie, whether they were looking back at their own, their parents, their grandparents, or even their great-grandparents generation!

Hope you enjoy watching the movie marathons!

Note: This movie is actually from 2017 and has been available to watch through Hallmark's streaming service Hallmark Movies Now and other streaming sources. This is, however, the first time this movie will premiere on the Hallmark Channel.


Story-line via Hallmark: Katherine, a workaholic executive, endures the worst Valentine's Day date of her life. On her walk home, a gypsy weaves a magical spell on her and when she wakes up the next morning, she realizes it's Valentine's Day again.

Review:

"The storyline above does refer to a woman as a "gypsy;" however, in the actual movie the woman refers to herself as Katherine's fairy Godmother. I've seen bits and pieces of this movie (what I saw was family friendly) and to me it had a feel somewhat like "A Shoe Addict's Christmas" where Candace Cameron Bure's character Noelle was guided by her guardian angel Charlie to make the right decisions about her faith, career and love." ~Net

It's been awhile since I've seen the movie, so if any of you have seen "Valentine's Again," I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Please share in comments below...

Ones that immediately came to mind for me were: "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: From the Heart," "Murder She Baked: A Peach Cobbler Mystery," "My Secret Valentine," "The Story of Us," and "Love, Romance & Chocolate!" Please share your favorites in comments below...

I hope you all have a warm and lovely Valentine's Day. I'm sending all of my dear friends here much love this weekend.

Are you looking forward to watching any of the new movies? I think they all look good, but I'm mostly looking forward to "Sincerely, Yours, Truly," "Crossword Mysteries: Terminal Descent" and the "When Calls the Heart" Sneak Peek Preview!


I hope you find something to love this weekend, too!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Blessings & Love to ALL of You!

SHARING HIS LOVE:

"Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love Never Fails..."

~1 Corinthians 13:4-8
