Killer Inspiration – Review
Killer Inspiration – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
The FBI believes a serial killer has resurfaced. This killer stalks, murders, and brands young, brunette, slim women with an infinity symbol. Since all the women look the same, they feel the victims are a proxy for the killer’s real obsession. A few days later, Amanda walks into their office. She says her ex-husband Clay kidnapped her son after sending her photographs. They look at the photographs and realize it’s pictures of the killer’s victim’s brands. They know that Amanda is the proxy. However, they are not sure that Clay is the killer. So, they continue to investigate. But as they get close, the killer calls Amanda. If she doesn’t cooperate with him, he will kill her son. The first step is to get the cops off his trail. The next steps will leave Amanda face-to-face with a darkness from her past.
Not bad for a Lifetime movie, but experienced watcher will see the killer from a mile away. While it throws suspicion, this movie only directs it at one person. It has enough action and detective work to keep the viewer watching and the overall motive is interesting. So give this one a chance on a rainy day.
I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars
I worry just the right amount – Amanda
You should always listen to me – Hailey
It’s you – Clay
Conrad and Michelle: If Words Could Kill – Review
Conrad and Michelle: If Words Could Kill – Lifetime – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Conrad’s parents sent him and his sisters on a trip to Florida to visit their grandparents to help cope with their divorce. It’s on the trip at that Conrad lays eyes on Michelle. Instead of approaching her, he runs away. Conrad social anxiety and depression makes it hard for him to focus and develop friendships. Michelle, noticing that Conrad was looking, finds him and they begin to talk. They realized they have a lot common like disorders, movies, and their favorite baseball team. Conrad can’t believe this beautiful and baseball-loving girl is from Massachusetts, too. They promise to meet when they get back to their hometowns. They meet up but Michelle reject is advances but they discuss life and suicide. Although they will never meet face to face again, the two will text constantly. It’s those text that will capture the country.
First, if you are thinking of harming yourself please text CONRAD to 741741 or visit Conrad and Michelle Resources. Now, seeing Conrad spend what he knew as his final days with his family is heartbreaking. He buys ice cream, smiles, and plays the goofball. All the while knowing that day was his last on earth. As sad as this is, its a fact of suicide victims. Families often release the final photo showing them joyful and with loved ones. With the right help, Conrad’s suicide is 100% avoidable. However, he met Michelle. Michelle was anorexic and bulimic with sociopathic markers. If she was hurting, she pushed Conrad further to the edge. Her “concern” for him caused her “friends” to care about her and spend time focusing solely on her. All of her “friends” leave her because she is “too much”. While Michelle is an extreme case, every person has experienced someone with negative energy. They slowly suck the life and happiness out of you. Unfortunately, Conrad could not break away before it is too late. While this review won’t tell you the end, you will be disgusted with Michelle. One takeaway from this movie, suicide is not a joke and should be handled with the utmost care. If someone is talking about hurting themselves, inform someone. Watch this one with your teen.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars
No matter what happens you can always, always, always talk to me – Michelle
If you’re gross, what does that say about me – Carol
I don’t wanna hurt myself but there is no other way. I wanna be with God – Conrad
Truly, Madly, Sweetly – Review
Truly, Madly, Sweetly – Hallmark – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Natalie is a struggling with her cupcake food truck. She wants to own a brick and mortar bakery but lacks the finances. Eric is a divorced, financial consultant with a daughter. He is trying to balance fatherhood and working but is left with embarrassing confusion when his daughter asks him to make something for the school bake sale. While taking down a sign, Natalie bumps into Eric causing his coffee to spill all over his shirt. She is embarrassed and offers to pay for his dry cleaning. So she gives Eric her phone number to pick up the dry cleaning tab and a cupcake. While working in her food truck, Natalie is served with papers. A customer, affectionately known as Aunt Bee, left something in her will for Natalie. Eric gets served with papers too. They enter the office building, get off onto the same floor, and ask to speak to the same person. Natalie listens closely as the lawyer explains that Aunt Bee was Eric’s aunt but she left them both something in her will. She left Eric Delitito’s Bakery and Natalie the carriage house behind the bakery. Eric only has one plan in mind: sell. Natalie only has one plan in mind: start a business. Eric tries to convince her to sell. But when the bakery is listed as a historical site, Eric can’t sell. And starting a business looks better, especially when Eric loses his job.
Based on Truly, Madly, Sweetly by Kira Archer, this movie is the cinematic equivalent of two step forward and one step back (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). While Eric and Natalie get to know each other, they combat face-offs with budgets, contractors, the historical society, and one big, wet mishap. They face these challenges head-on but it’s their secrets that could damage their future as a couple and as business partners. This movie has a strong plotline but also give a little business advice to anyone trying to get a startup going. This couple is believable and keeps you engrossed in the storyline.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars
