XOXO

Patrick

Love Unleashed

Premieres: July 6th, 9/8c on Hallmark Channel 

Stars: Jen Lilley and Christopher Russell.

Synopsis (Via Hallmark)

While hosting a puppy party, Hailey meets single father Ryan. She helps him discover the value of adopting a dog, and teaches him that there’s more to life, especially when falling in love.

Thoughts

Trailer can be viewed here. I REALLY wish Hallmark would look up what a Puppy Party is in gay culture, because it is not what they think it is. I do like Jen Lilley, but have never heard of Christopher Russell… he is handsome tho!  “Let it Breathe” 

Trapped Model

Premieres: July 6th, 8/7c on Lifetime  

Stars:  TBA

Synopsis (Via Lifetime)

TBA

Thoughts

Based on ONLY the title, because that is what Lifetime has provided at the time of publishing this post, I’m going to “Pour it Up!” If it is anything like America’s Next Top Model, but where people get trapped. I’m here for it!

Paris Can Wait

Premieres: July 7th, 8/7c on Lifetime  

Stars:  TBA

Synopsis (Via Lifetime)

TBA

Thoughts

I did some research and could only find the 2017 film starring Diane Lane and Alec Baldwin, so if it is anything like that then “Pour it Up!” but since it probably won’t be, I will “Put a Cork in It.”

Stalked by My Doctor: A Sleepwalker’s Nightmare 

Premieres: July 13th, 8/7c on Lifetime  

Stars:  TBA

Synopsis (Via Lifetime)

TBA

Thoughts

Movie is not listed on Eric Roberts IMDB page. If they don’t have the doctor, I don’t know how Lifetime can pull this off. Plus, I hate this series. “Put a Cork in it.”

Christmas Camp

Premieres: July 11thth 9/8c on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries 

Stars: Lily Anne Harrison, Bobby Campo, Ben Gavin

Synopsis (Via Hallmark)

To get a promotion, Hayley, an advertising executive who specializes in social media, must land a toy company that is all about traditional Christmas as an account

Thoughts

Bobby Campo is hot like this July weather, but I’m not super into the trailer.(You can watch here.) Maybe I’m not into the whole Christmas in July thing. I’m going to “Let it Breathe.”

Mystery 101: Playing Dead

Premieres: July 11th 9/8c on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries 

Stars: Jill Wagner and Kristoffer Polaha.

Synopsis (Via Hallmark)

The local theater is producing a mystery that crime fiction expert Amy unearthed. When one of the actress’ life is threatened, Amy & Travis must uncover which character is playing for keeps.

Thoughts

It has been established that these two have great chemistry. However, I have yet to see any of their movies together. Check out the  trailer.(You can watch here.) I’m going to “Let it Breathe.”

The Madam of Purity Falls

Premieres: July 20th, 8/7c on Lifetime  

Stars:  Olivia d’Abo, Kristanna Loken, Beth Broderick 

Synopsis (Via Lifetime)

After the tragic death of her husband, a mother moves her teenage son and daughter to the idyllic town of Purity Falls only to find the rift with her son deepen when he becomes entrapped in the neighborhood maven’s nefarious home business.

Thoughts

Based on this thirsty AF poster, I’m absolutely pouring it up. Then you add Aunt Zelda from OG Sabrina The Teenage Witch! “Pour it Up.”

Heaven

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

Stars:  Annalise Basso, Chris McNally, Julie Benz

Synopsis (Via Lifetime)

“Heaven” introduces the infamous Casteel family, the least regarded of all the families living in the poverty-stricken foothills of the mountains of West Virginia. Yet the eldest daughter, Heaven Leigh Casteel (Annalise Basso), was still the smartest girl in the backwoods and determined to redeem her family name. However, her dreams become deferred the day her stepmother flees and her selfish father Luke (Chris William Martin) sells her and her four siblings to different families. Heaven is sent to live in the home of Luke’s deranged ex-lover, Kitty (Julie Benz), who torments Heaven as Kitty’s husband, Cal (Chris McNally) lures Heaven into a forbidden relationship while she fights to reunite her siblings.

Thoughts

I’m VERY confused by this series. Like,  these books popular before I was reading Goosebumps… who asked for this?!?! You can watch the trailer for yourself here. Lifetime is planning on releasing the whole series of movies over the following 5 weeks. So, if you like V.C Andrews… “Pour it Up.” If you are like me, “Put a Cork in It.”
