Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Home Again – Review
Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Home Again – HMM – 2 hours and 0 minutes
With a piece of abstract art, Shane tries to open Oliver’s mind to changes. However, she opens up the wall. Behind the wall is the Lost Mailbag of Harry Snap. They start to go through the undelivered mail and find a vase with a letter. The note was mailed by Peggy, Mary Lou, and Bunny 18 years ago. The letter was addressed to an art dealer. The three girls were selling the vase to save their family farm. They were told the vase was valuable and should only be sold as a last-ditch effort for money. The family called it their “Just In Case” Vase. But when their father died, their mother became depressed and stopped working the farm. As the bills piled up, the girls wanted to keep their farm. So they decided to sale the vase without their mother knowledge. Now that the vase is found, the Postables will do everything to find the owner. But are the girls and their family the true owner? You have to watch to find out.
This movie will draw you in. As a viewer, you are shocked that they find the owner in the first 30 minutes but this is only the beginning of the story. As the story continues, the love between both couples grows stronger. And the subplot with Rita’s parents is the dose of comedy the story needs. While this is a very compelling story with a Hallmark ending, it attempts to touch on a horrific topic. But they never say it by name. While the story is compelling and can lead you to tears, you keep waiting for them to mention the word. So in the future, if you are going to focus your movie around an event, say the event and its perpetrators by name.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars

Harvest Love – Review
Harvest Love – Hallmark – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Dr. Luna Gilson is the most respected surgeons in her Seattle Hospital. While she is climbing up the ladder, she has lo the connection between her patients and her son Andy. So, when she learned that Andy didn’t invite her to a school play because he knew she would be busy, she decides to take a vacation on her families farm. They grow some of the best pears in town and has owned the land for 3 generations. After a couple of unfortunate run-ins, she is properly introduced to Will, the farm’s manager. He is a scientist that specializes in farming. Luna is truly impressed. The more time Luna spends in the small town and on the farm, she starts to appreciate the lifestyle. She and Andy get comfortable. Now, Luna is considering staying. But her parents warn her to enjoy it now because they are going to sell the farm. Luna can’t imagine the family without its farm. So she has to act fast to save it.
Harvest Love is a nice Hallmark movie. And while Luna and Will don’t hate each other, they do annoy each other. The farm scenes are beautiful and picturesque. But that is taken away when the noticeable green screen is used. Since you know how the story will end for Will and Luna, their love story brings little to no interest. But the subplot of selling the family farm and the Harvest Fest Pear Contest shines through. This a movie you DVR and watch when you need to kill 2 hours.
I give it 2.5 out of 5 stars
