Killer Ending – Review
Killer Ending – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Agatha has survived an abusive husband to become a semi-famous mystery writer. As she writes her latest novel, she drops her daughter off at college, gets an assistant, and threatens her manager. When Agatha can’t get in touch with her daughter Sarah for a few days, her assistant Caroline takes matters into her own hands. Caroline goes to Sarah’s dorm room to find broken glass, an upside down heart on the wall, and Sarah’s ex Jack strung up. She calls Agatha to report her findings and Agatha is floored. The crime scene is just like the one in her manuscript, her unpublished manuscript. She realizes someone has hacked into her computer and following her unpublished book in real time with her daughter as the victim. Agatha tries to use this knowledge to ensure her daughter safety by typing in lines about feeding the victim. But when someone else starts typing, Agatha and possibly Sarah are lost.
“Just call the cops” is a phrase you will be screaming from the beginning. Or “write he will return you daughter home alive” is something else you may say. But give this movie a chance. It has a lot of Red Herring and not-so-dumb cops. However, as the mystery of her daughter starts up, the mystery of her husband death starts to turn its ugly head. This will leave you truly questioning everything going on in the movie. That is the true mystery.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars
Well, you’ve come a long way since then – Agatha
I guess I disagreed with the agreement – Jack
Are you flirting with me – Caroline
Deadly Matrimony – Review
Deadly Matrimony – Lifetime – 2 hours and 2 minutes
Sara is a smart, funny lawyer who is doing something that makes everyone who knows her uncomfortable. She is marrying Leo. While he is very charming, Sara’s loved ones can’t get past the fact she has only known him for three months. But she is happy, so they keep their peace. After getting married, she hears a woman crying in the bathroom during the reception. She thinks is strange but brushes it off. A few days later, she checks her bank account and discovers all her money is gone and Leo has bought a plane ticket. She believes she has been hacked but some believe Leo did it. While she dreams of Leo’s dangerous side, she tries to keep her faith in her marriage. That is until Melinda comes knocking at her door. Melinda knows Leo as Sam: her husband. The man that took all her money and left her with nothing. Melinda wants Sara to join forces with her and take Leo/Sam down. But will Sara believe her?
Be prepared to yell at the TV. While watching the story unravel, don’t get furious with the lead character. She is just stuck in love. Even with every sign pointing to Leo being a crook, she keeps hoping there’s an explanation. Sara makes all the typical Lifetime mistakes when getting married (short engagement, ignoring friends warnings, ignoring spouse’s flaws). But she will become stronger and see Leo for who he truly is.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars

Royally Ever After – Review

Daniel is ready to ask Sara to be his wife. He knows he truly loves her and she him. But there is one thing he didn’t tell her. He is the crowned Prince of St. Ives, next in line for the throne. Even though he got Burt and Marie’s, Sara’s parents, permission, he still needs to get the Queen and King to accept her and his engagement. Once Sara learns Daniel’s true identity, her laughter leads to shock and awe. The moment Sara lands in St. Ives, she makes a string of faux pas. Sara believes that manners are keeping her from the Queen’s acceptance. But when she learns how much Daniel will give up for marrying a commoner, can she go through with the wedding?
This is one of those most unintentionally funny film Hallmark has to offer. It is funny without making fun of Sara and her family’s commoner ways. They are just being nice and welcoming in a frosty situation. It’s so easy to believe this is a true love story. The lead couple is amazingly connected and feed off of each other. This is one to watch. So get your tea warm, your DVR ready, and 2 hours of quiet to yourself. Enjoy.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars

My Stepdaughter – Lifetime – 2 hours 0 minutes
Seven years ago, Casey witness a horrible fight between her mother and father that had a bloody end. This fight has lead Casey to become a recluse and lash out at her new step mother, Jill, and step sister, Lydia. First, Jill tries to connect to Casey with kindness, but when that doesn’t work, Jill sets strict ground rules. Casey does not take kindly to either. Then, Jill’s mother passes away which leaves Jill crushed. But a warning from a very old and sick man, leads Jill to believe her mother’s death was not natural causes. Next, Cassie’s ex-boyfriend, Victor, dies after they had a fight and Casey posted it on the internet. Jill’s final straw is her mother’s questionable will. It’s changed the day after she showed Jill her intentions. Jill believes that Casey is behind everything. But is Jill right or is she delusional?
The best part of a mystery is revealing all the secrets. In this movie, everyone has a secret. It’s easy to see that Jill maybe jumping to conclusions. However, Casey is giving all those Lifetime Evil Teen vibes. Even with the revealing promos this movie will keep you guessing “when will they all figure it out”. Set your DVRs and watch when you are ready. You will have a fun time watching and … during some parts … rolling your eyes and screaming at the TV.
I give this 3 out of 5 stars
Wow, you shouldn’t have – Casey
Don’t test me Casey – Jill
Maybe she needed some fresh air and get away from all the … structure – Skyla
His Double Life – Lifetime – 2 hours 2 minutes
Scarlet is taking a break from school and staying with her mom and new stepdad, Linda and Greg. Scarlet is still hurting from the untimely death of her father in a car accident, so seeing her mother marry her dad’s business partner makes Scarlet uneasy. With the help of her friends, August and Darcy, Scarlet starts to investigate Greg to find out who he truly is, why he married her mother, and if he was involved in her father’s death.
This movie starts slow and somewhat confusing. You will understand that Scarlet is suspicious of Greg but you don’t know what triggered it. She suspects Greg in her father’s death, but there is not reason why she blamed him. This movie does take a unique turn for a Lifetime movie; and that’s why its enjoyable. This isn’t the insurance scam, extra wife, or extra kids you would expect from Lifetime. The score is basic at best. This movie should be background noise for 30 to 45 minutes, then give it our undivided attention.
I give this movie 3.5 out of 5
For your mother to be happy – Greg
Scarlet listen to me. It’s not your fault – August
You’ll see – Greg
