Bad Tutor – Review
Bad Tutor – Lifetime – 2 hours and 2 minutes
Emily has dreams of being a singer but if she can’t pass chemistry, her mother Kelly will never let her stand on stage again. While the two bicker in the coffee shop, Devin overhears them and takes notes. When Emily’s tutor appears at their door she looks under the influence. She is quickly relieved of her duties. The next day, Kelly is helping a patient with a chipped tooth. The patient is wearing a lab shirt and mentions that he tutors. Kelly asks him to tutor Emily and he says yes with feigned hesitation. Kelly doesn’t know that he drugged her last tutor to get next to Emily. He promises himself that this time he will get it right and everything will be perfect. Even if he as to kill.
This is a fun drama with some suspense. You will have an idea how it will end and you are right. It tries to add a twist but its typical for a Lifetime movie. While the story does develop quickly, you will be entertained by Devin ramping up the crazy. Whether he is attacking a tutor, a bandmate, or himself, his ability to go from 0 to 100 is amazing. Devin is the reason to watch.
I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars

Hold on to your seats, this is one wild ride. You think you know where this movie is going based on the title. Well, you are 100% wrong. Don’t give up on this movie because the first hour and a half follow the Lifetime format. It’s Lifetimer set up. The last 30 minutes will leave you in total disbelief. With all the suspense in the storyline, this movie has one of the best-choreographed fight scenes ever in a Lifetime film. You feel each punch and slap. These women didn’t come to look cute, they came to battle. Make sure you catch this one before someone ruins the ending.

Royal Hearts – Review
Royal Hearts – Hallmark – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Kelly grew up a proud ranch hand and cowgirl under the tutelage of her father Henry in Montana. But as she got older, she found a love for books especially Jane Austen (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). Now all grown up, Kelly is an assistant professor working on her doctorate. She feels her father is disappointed she didn’t take up the family ranching tradition. So telling him that she plans to leave for Oxford, has been difficult to do. Once she finally musters up the courage, she is interrupted by Mr. Grimsby. He tells Henry that is great, great grandfather left his country to marry an American woman of which his family did not approve. However, Henry is the oldest living heir of his recently deceased uncle, leaving him the heir to a large estate. In order to claim the estate, Henry must travel to the other side the world. With a little prodding, Kelly convinces Henry to go. Once they arrive, they learn that the estate comes with a title: King. Now King Henry and Princess Kelly have to decide the fate of everyone in their kingdom. But with outside forces like a council and love, Henry may give up the throne. But the king’s ranch hand Alex may have something to say about that.
This is one of the best Hallmark movies in a long time. While adjusting to life as a king, Henry instills his country wisdom of hard work and pride. He is appalled at the idea of raising taxes to improve his castle. While giving them some cowboy moxie, he has to decide if he wants to be a king or dissolve his country into King Nicholas’s, Ambrosia. Just as King Henry is deciding, his daughter Kelly is falling for Nicholas; while Alex is falling for Kelly. This love triangle is where most Hallmark movies will leave it, but this one delves into the complex relationships between fathers and daughters. Royal Hearts is one of the strongest, in-depth storylines this network has produced in years. And the scenery will make your heart melt.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars
