Dangerous Seduction – Review
Dangerous Seduction – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Posey – a medical artist – is looking for some excitement to help build up her confidence. She hopes the confidence boost will give her to courage land her dream job. While her fiance, Tom, wants to help, he just misses the mark. Posey tries to dress sexy, tries experimenting in bed, and even tries visualizing herself with confidence but nothing works. Her cousin and best friend Laura thinks her only problem is Tom. So when Posey meets a sexy stranger named Jack, she is carefully intrigued. She considers cheating on Tom but continues to flirt with the razor’s edge. And to make matters worse, a few women she has had brief contact with, died. Posey has no idea that Jack is working with Stella and Charlie to kidnap these women for a man named Alex. Alex turns them into his personal sex slaves and kills them. To make matter worse, Stella believes that Alex will like Posey, so she sent Jack to kidnap her. Now Jack is slowly seducing Posey to make her Alex’s next victim.
It takes a while for this movie to make its point. By being so mysterious, you wonder when “it” will happen. You will start to lose interest as the storylines weave into each other. This movie should have started with a woman being kidnapped after talking to Jack. Then you would feel a sense of urgency when Posey met Jack. This movie is background noise with an interesting last 20 minutes.
I give it 2 out of 5 stars

Soon after his arrival, Rose is hurt, Kate is injured, and Ms. Grey consistently defends Jack. It will take a few dead bodies for Kate to learn the truth about Jack.
Kids can be the creepiest. But this movie ups the creep factor with a somewhat surprising twist. You will have the feeling that there is something more to the story, and you are right. But the twist will keep you watching. This movie has everything you want from Lifetime: murder, drama, and videotape. And just when Kate seems to have things under control, another piece of the puzzle is revealed. This movie will keep you on the hook. So, keep a light on.
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

The Beach House – Review
The Beach House – Hallmark – 1 hour and 48 minutes
Caretta had returned to her hometown to visit her family. On the ride there, she gets the bad news that she has been fired. Caretta decides to keep the news from her mother Lovie in order to keep the visit pleasant. But Caretta is turned on her head to discover that Lovie’s given the main house to her son Palmer and she has an unwed, pregnant woman living with her at the beach house. While Caretta has secrets, Palmer and Lovie are keeping some from her. Soon all their secrets will come to head and The Beach House will be in the center. The Beach House has survived a hurricane, neglect, and a marriage, but can it survive one more summer with this family.
Based on The Beach House by Mary Alice Monroe, this is a sweet, wholesome movie that covers southern female stereotypes, forgiveness, strength, and turtles. It handles the topics the only way Hallmark can – with class. However, this movie feels like a kick-off for the book series’s film adaptations. It just seems to go flat and does not solve any of the problems presented in the story. So hold off on this movie until the next one comes out. Then watch then back to back.
I give it 2 out of 5 stars
Anything to avoid my turtles – Lovie
You know nothing ever changes around her. Not the weather, not even accents – Palmer
It looks like paradise can use a little sprucing up – Caretta
