Thoughts

I feel like you should know if you are a serial killer or… have killed someone. This trailer is real dumb. “Give me the cleaver.” Haha, how about, “Put a cork in it”

Thoughts

Even though it is prom queen season NOT homecoming season. I’ve been needing a highschool killer movie, so. “Pour it up”

Surprised to find her former boyfriend Ryan is the ranch manager, Abby is soon swept up in their old chemistry.

Thoughts

But when she gets too close to the truth, Hailey becomes the killer’s next target for murder.

Thoughts

Kellie Martin was a TV queen in the 90’s, but almost 30 years later she has gotten pretty boring. Plus why does she do these movies, but never Christmas Hallmark Movies? “Let it Breathe.”

Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal

Premieres: May 27th, 8/7c on Lifetime

Stars: Charlie Field & Tiffany Smith

Synopsis (Via Lifetime)

“Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal,” the sequel to the 2018 hit movie, continues the love story of newlyweds Prince Harry (Charlie Field, “Genius”) and American actress Meghan Markle (Tiffany Smith, “Supernatural”), pulling back the curtain to reveal the untold joys and challenges of life inside the Royal Family during their pivotal first year of marriage. Beyond blending their families and cultures, Harry and Meghan’s core values are put to the test as they try to find the balance between honoring Royal tradition and staying true to their beliefs.

Thoughts

A sequel without the original actors, Murray Fraser and Parisa Fitz-Henley, had me nervous at first. But after watching the trailer I’m fine with the recasting. It is more about recreating the infamous looks of the royal couple and then wildly speculating about what happened behind closed doors. “Pour it Up”
