2019 Countdown to Christmas Preview – 10th Anniversary Special

It's almost the end of the Summer, and Hallmark JUST wrapped up its "Christmas in July" special, so you know what time it is - time to talk about all the upcoming Hallmark Christmas movies for 2019! This year marks the 10th anniversary of CTC (Countdown to Christmas - I've never heard it abbreviated but [...]

Christmas In Love

Christmas In Love

Christmas in Love (not to be confused with other Hallmark gems, "My Christmas Love" or "Love You Like Christmas") gives you NO specifics about what's going to happen in this movie, so don't worry, I'm here to give you all the details. Here's the cover of the film, and it's grade-A standard Hallmark looks. I [...]

Killer Twin

Killer Twin

Looking into this movie, I learned that before "Killer Twin," it was originally called, "A Sister's Obsession," which is a CLASSIC Lifetime Movie name: usually contains a possessive, double points for it being three words (see Stalker's Prey, A Neighbor's Deception, and Her Husband's Betrayal for reference). Killer Twin as a title gives a LOT [...]

Killer Single Dad

Killer Single Dad

Something I've learned from watching Lifetime movies is that 1) if the opening scene is an attack, we don't actually care about this person (They're unfortunately the sacrificial lamb for the drama ahead), and 2) things move FAST, so don't get too comfortable and get ready to take in a lot of information quickly. I've [...]

Stalker’s Prey

Stalker’s Prey

This movie feels like the creative team at Lifetime put a bunch of topics into a hat, pulled two out, and then were forced to write a movie about 1) a  Stalker and 2) a Shark Attack. MAKE IT HAPPEN, TEAM! And boy oh BOY did they make it happen. I want to call 911 [...]

The Psycho She Met Online: A Lifemark Halltime Guest Post by Rubi

Welcome to Lifemark Halltime’s very first guest post, written by me, Rubi. Some things to know about me: I am Jen’s best friend. I will steal one of your fries, no matter what I order. And I have not watched a Lifetime movie quite possibly since the 2005 Alexa Vega swan song Odd Girl Out [...]

Which Lifetime or Hallmark Movie Should You Watch This Valentine’s Day?

Roses are red, violets are blue, let's find the perfect Lifetime/Hallmark movie for you! It's Valentine's Day this week, which can mean lots of things: a romantic night with your Valentine, a bitch session for Galentine's Day, a quest to find the perfect place to cry alone (a car is usually good!), bar hopping to [...]

Love by the Book

Love by the Book

"Love by the Book" is a cute title, and the movie definitely delivers on the clichés for a Hallmark romance movie, except for one thing - the guys in this movie ARE NOT CUTE. I know, I was just as shocked to find this out while watching, and for a Hallmark movie where we have no [...]

I Am Watching You

I Am Watching You

If you've ever said to yourself, "50 Shades of Grey is cool but everyone seems too rich and I don't actually want to see any naked body parts," then I Am Watching You is just your speed!  We start on a scene of a guy and girl laying on the floor covered in blood. That's [...]

A Neighbor’s Deception

A Neighbor’s Deception

If you wanted to watch a quintessential Lifetime movie, A Neighbor's Deception is a pretty solid choice. We've got a three-word title that includes a possessive noun about a person followed by a scary word - A Neighbor's Deception (see also "Her Husband's Betrayal" for another example of this title format), a new town, a [...]
