Thursday, December 1, 2022:


Details via NBC: A modern-day movie musical about the making of a network TV special, "Dolly Parton's Mountain Magic Christmas" is the frenetic backstage story and delightful on-camera results of Dolly's desire to uplift an exhausted world's spirits by sharing the unique "mountain magic" she has always found in and around Dollywood at Christmas. Throughout the movie's production numbers and rehearsal chaos, Dolly finds herself taking a private journey into her past, guided by the mysterious appearances of her personal Three Wise Men. When it's time for her big special to air live, a renewed and inspired Dolly goes rogue and shows the world that the real magic of Christmas lies in the hearts of the children we all once were, the realization that Christmas is about the people we share it with and how her faith remains the common thread between Christmases past, present and future.

Storyline: Scarlett (Britt Irvin) is an incredible chef and co-owner of an upscale restaurant. But every year, her too-sophisticated and unique holiday dishes never sell because they are not considered festive enough. To shake things up this year, her best friend and co-owner buys her a ticket to a holiday cooking getaway in a beautiful villa where Scarlett will re-learn festive cooking from the bottom up, maybe find love with a handsome rival chef from her past (Zach Roerig), and regain the Christmas spirit her food—and her life—truly needs.

Movie Reviews:

πŸŽ„"I watched Christmas In The Wilds and enjoyed it. Everything about this movie was good except for a couple of things. Getting stuck in snow in a vehicle with snow tires or chains made no sense to me. Also, how could the guy not see through the manipulation of his co-worker? Both of the main actors are great together. Loved seeing all the same actors continue from Romance In The Wilds. The scenery is breath-taking! Real snow everywhere! Can not say enough about how Christmasy this is. Music is beautiful. Happy I have the DVD. Hope I did not say too much to ruin it for others.You will not be disappointed." ~kitkat

πŸŽ„"This is a sequel movie to the INSP film, Romance in the Wilds. I watched through Fox Nation, with a free streaming trial. Christmas in the Wilds is very similar to the first movie, but it has the wonderful addition of Christmas and some extra moments with Buck Thompson’s family added in, who are seen even more in this movie than the first. There’s a lot of action-adventure when Buck and his former partner/ex-girlfriend end up in the snowy forest with a blizzard on the way. Even though the weather outside is frightful, Jessica is determined to reach her boyfriend, Buck, spend Christmas together and return him to his family – before the Christmas eve service where they will honor the memory of Buck’s father. If outdoor survival is fascinating to you, then you will really enjoy this movie. Christmas in the Wilds is action-packed throughout, with some heartwarming moments, too. I especially enjoyed the scenes with Buck’s sister (played by Laura Vandervoot, “A Christmas Together With You”), who was dog-sitting for Jessica. She said she was more of a cat-person, so it was sweet to see her warm up to the dog and later on, open up and share her feelings. Overall, it was a nice movie to watch; it shows great respect to those who serve in the military, how to cope with PTSD, and best of all, it is family-friendly." ~Net

Storyline: Bridget Torres (Valery Ortiz) is a prominent national news weather forecaster who comes to the magical, wintry town of Leavenworth, Washington, where Christmas traditions prevail each holiday season. This year, Bridget has been asked by her network to announce a special “snow-cast” at the annual Christmas Eve festival and has brought her boss Lisa (Nicole Bilderback) along with her. Bridget’s plans to shine are foiled when a talk show host from her network arrives to join her for the broadcast. Drake Kincaid (Brandon Quinn), as it turns out, refused to hire Bridget as his co-host for their morning show a year earlier, making tensions high. The unlikely duo soon finds themselves falling for each other, but when Bridget finally discovers why Drake didn’t hire her, their romance is put to the test.

  2. Net, don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but I really love your graphics. I work for a local printer so I realize how hard it can be sometimes. Always worth looking forward to.

  3. These all look solid enough movies without being really exciting but then as we know you can't judge a book by its cover - Florence

  5. "A Big Fat Family Christmas" -- I was in and out, but what I saw was family-friendly.

  6. "Serving Up the Holidays" -- family-friendly. Nice for a one-time watch. :-)

  7. Serving Up the Holidays. A simple, cozy, very unrealistic, slow, sweet movie. It didn’t have the polish of movies with top celebrity actors, but it was cute in a low-key way and had some nice Christmas feels. Not a keeper for me, but good for a one-time watch. Family friendly.

  8. Cloudy With a Chance of Christmas. Not a keeper, but it was a nice enough movie, set in a warm & cozy, rustic lodge in a cute “Bavarian” Christmas town in Washington state with a beautiful mountainous backdrop. So, therefore, the setting provided some good Christmastime “feels”. At times, the movie and acting felt a bit forced or stiff or something; and the big conflict between the leads was really a flimsy excuse for a conflict so that when the leads finally get together after the conflict it feels a bit flat. It was still a cute movie and good for a one-time watch. The lead actress is Puerto Rican (in real life and in the movie) and there was a nice emphasis on the importance of getting home in time to go to Christmas Eve mass with her auntie. Family friendly.
