Film Reviews

In Alphabetical Order
reviews of box office, TV and indie films. 
if you’re looking for 
Hallmark Channel reviews, 
find them on the Hallmark review page or 
a specific period drama, visit our Costume Drama archive page

If you’re looking for something, but don’t see it, you can use the search bar below to look up specific titles (applies to this page only) or find the search bar at the top of the screen.

*Work in Progress note: Please excuse the disarray of the archives. I’m working hard to reformat reviews following the move. If, when you click on a review, a “redirect” page appears, don’t be alarmed. Just click “yes” to see the review. All this means is the review is redirecting from an old Blogspot address and I haven’t updated the link on this page.
