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

*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.
