I'm watching A movie called Reality of Love/I Wanna Marry Ryan Banks right now on Lifetime and it's pretty good. It's one of those sweet little love stories movies I can't help but enjoy.

That's from back when ABC Family was still making those romantic movies. They still seem to do a couple of holiday movies here and there but the last one of those general ones seems to be the one with Melissa and Joey prior to their getting the sitcom.

They probably saw Jason Priestly as a bigger deal than Bradley Cooper and look how he's taken off since then.

The movies they are showing after are kind of sweet as well. I'm to the point now where I sometimes just watch the end of some of these movies since the last three or four minutes contains all the ahhhh moments.

My comment on the latest Kellie Martin Hallmark movie is that I am glad that they refrained from doing that reverse kissing scene that they seem to be fond of using for moving endings--the one where the couple finally gets together and kisses and the next scene is them kissing at their wedding only they've reversed positions going from left to right/right to left. I find that totally unnecessary but somebody clearly loves using that technique.

So I watched Lifetime's latest movie "Stalked At 17" which featured Jamie Luner as the crazy mother of a crazy obsessive son who looked more like 30 than the 21-22 years he was supposed to be.

There wasn't much stalking in this movie. He actually exhibited as much if not more obsessive behavior towards the parents, specifically the father, until the last quarter of the movie.

I found it one of the oddest of the bad movies they've churned out because they make this girl a teen mother and completely ignore the consequences of that just to focus on the final plot point.

Here's a humorous take on it:

Teenage Bank Heist started out decent and even the action towards the end was good but the ending was bs.

I saw a few minutes of it and got the impression that the girl talking to the "Brinks" guy was going to turn out to be in on it. I stopped watching.

Last week's original Hallmark movie Love at the Thanksgiving Day Parade had a noticeable editing mistake at the end.

I don't get Hallmark channel. I catch those movies when I'm visiting my mother.

    • RHUGT  2: Having heard the rumors, I was trepidatious about watching a show devolving into a hot drunken mess. But I was pleasantly surprised by the structure to the HWs' days. And by some of the HWs themselves. Love Eva, Phaedra and Taylor. Eva surprised me: she has the right positive energy and strength to hold the cast together. So does Phaedra. If Phaedra returns to ATL, I'd be down with it. She has the right mix of kooky with reasonableness and humor. Taylor also had this calmness, strength and sensitivity that I always felt grounded BH. TayShana was let go too soon and BH wanting to prioritise wealth and fame has never recovered.  On the fence: Dorinda, Jill, Tamra. Dorinda wants to return to RHONY triumphant, and that is clear. Not sure she has reflected enough on her behaviour though I do like her hosting the show. We will see if she goes full pantomime with her RH persona. Jill always worked best as a pot-stirrer one on one. She can't marshall a group, or maybe she has mellowed since RHONY. Tamra is too cautious and wedded to Vicki who drags her down. I wanted Vicki to return to OC, but now I'm not so sure. Negative Nelly. Brandi, I wanted to dislike, and it's early days still. But grudgingly she Is winning me over. When she's not an evil drunken crazy person, she can be charming, winning and funny. A natural heroine almost. I miss that energy from BH. But not her other hang-ups. We will see.

    • Yeah, there were more. They also had a few episodes where the roommates were flashing back to stuff, but it was all new footage (the Mother's Day episode, the episode where they all first met and moved in together, etc.)
