Hallmark Channel Movies: Our Sap Brings in the Eyeballs!

Recommended Posts

Just listened to the Deck the Hallmark on Winter Castle. They really ripped the editing in addition to the issues many of us noted with the Other Woman character being likable and correct to think she was the love interest. They blamed the writers for the male lead's actions and the pacing for the relationship.

They liked the ice hotel and got into how it really works, but they ripped the movie's issues harder than we did here..

Good for them, but I couldn’t last more than 10 minutes with that movie. Kellie’s voice was grating.

Trying to watch the V day movie with Lacey and Andrew Walker and it’s pretty boring.

I watched two movies I’ve never had the chance to before, Elevator Girl and All Things Valentine. I really liked them both. The couples were both cute (I like Sam Page the more I see him), and the story lines weren’t typically contrived. I’m glad I finally saw them.

Oh, and Sarah Rafferty is absolutely gorgeous. I’ve seen her in commercials for Suits in the past, but that’s all until today. And she can act. I would love to see her in another Hallmark movie (although she’s probably “graduated” from that now).

I always liked Elevator Girl. Tween stars from my own tweenhood states in it! Lacey Chaubert had just started doing hallmark movies when it came out and the male lead, Ryan Merriman did a lot of Disney channel movies in the late 90s. 

All things Valentine is a favorite of mine too because it’s pretty realistic to life. The fact that she did like the guy in an organic way, and he was dating (but not committed to) another woman when they met and he liked her better- that happens far more than someone having a fiancé and a wedding being stopped mid vows!

 

Side note- WHY are there Xmas movies every Friday now??? It’s not Christmas time!

Okay, I can't comment on the whole Love, Romance, & Chocolate movie yet because it's not over (although I'm enjoying it so far), but I can comment on the fact that Will Kemp is a whole lotta irresistible.

I was waiting for this one with interest, because I suspected Will Kemp could do a lot more than he had to do with the Prince character in the Royal Matchmaker one.  He really brought it !   (Don't know if anybody mentioned that of course he was essentially a ballet dancer, and his first notice by the greater public (in England) was a commercial for Levis in which he danced like a maniac -)   The Matchmaker thing really restricted him in every sense, but this one was delightful.  My IMDB says also he did a period thing where he was Lord Darnley -- so he's got range.     

On top of that the backgrounds were really enjoyable.    And, altho they had to use the "love interest mis-interprets seeing lady with other fellow ..", they at least avoided the "bumping into each other and spilling coffee."  Points for that.   My point is -- really enjoyed Will Kemp.

I didn’t intend to watch Love, Romance and Chocolate because I’m not much of a Lacey Chabert fan, but I decided to give it a shot, knowing I’d change the channel quickly if it didn’t hook me (my standard Hallmark movie MO).  Surprisingly, I stayed with it and really enjoyed it.  I now want to visit Bruges ASAP!  The lovely scenery, the gorgeous chocolate works and behind-the-scenes cookery, the gorgeous hotel and palace, the charming hotel manager/owner, a winning and un-silly Lacey, and the wonderful Will Kemp.  I didn’t know a thing about him so looked him up — not surprised to learn that he’s a very accomplished ballet dancer because I noticed that “walk” from time to time.  I’d definitely watch again.

Do you mean this Gap ad?  Or is there another old commercial featuring Will Kemp dancing?

I looked him up and saw that he was in Kristin's Christmas Past, with Shiri Appleby, and he was very cute in that movie.

I haven't watched Love, Romance and Chocolate yet, but I recorded it mainly for the location stuff... so I'm glad to read that at least some people enjoyed it.

I watched A Harvest Wedding, which was from 2017, starring Jill Wagner as a wedding planner... and I loved this rust colored coat she wore in several scenes.  Are there any websites that list clothes worn in Hallmark movies, like they do for wardrobe items in various television shows?  It's probably too late to find that particular item, or anything else Jill wore in that movie (she had a lot of cute outfits!)... but I've been wondering for a while if there are any Hallmark fashion websites.

PRE-cisely !!    Levis, Gap, sorry I mixed 'em up, but glad you recognized it.    That's the one I was thinking of.   Thank you for posting it !  

It really makes you wonder why somebody cast him to meander through the Matchmaker movie when he has so much good energy ..  Thanks again for the video !
