Let’s admit it, we all have days when we feel like everyone and everything in our surroundings is trying to bring us down – even the littlest things seem to annoy us. Well, that’s the most perfect time for us to indulge in some sort of pick-me-up, or me-time.
For example, you can go out for a nice meal or get an entire cake, and eat it all yourself? Or, you can have a movie marathon or pamper yourself with a cozy spa day? All good options, no doubt, however, in our opinion, the movie marathon is a perfect idea. Why? Because, unlike other options, you’re not going to regret overspending, overeating, or using your energy and not being happy still.
Watching movies can take your mind off things and it is a great way to de-stress and relax. Especially, when it’s light-hearted and slow-paced movies. You don’t have to think too much like in murder movies and crime fiction, you’re not expecting to get scared like in horror and thriller movies, etc. It’s a calm-paced happy story, with a few lessons along the way. Which movies are we talking about? Hallmark movies, of course! With their heartwarming romances, meaningful messages, and the importance of family, these movies are a staple!
If Hallmark movies were to be described in a sentence, it would be that they are like lying in bed with a cozy blanket and a cup of hot cocoa. This is why these movies are deemed perfect for watching during Christmas. However, you don’t need to wait till the end of the year to enjoy them, you can do it anytime. After all, it gets easier when you can get to watch these movies on the Hallmark Channel.
You can find this channel as part of the channel lineup for many ISPs, some of them are like Spectrum, Xfinity and RCN. If you go onto the website, you will find that RCN channel lists include Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama among many other channels.
But anyway, getting back to the topic, there is a wide selection of Hallmark movies from which you can choose one to watch. It’s highly probable you haven’t watched all of the hallmark movies, so you might even get to watch a new movie. Even if you have watched a movie before, you can enjoy it again! So, let’s get on to the list, shall we?
The Lost Valentine
The first one on this list is The Lost Valentine, the story of an old woman who lost her husband in World War 2. This is the mystery that a journalist wants to uncover and so, she meets the old woman and helps her to find what happened to her lost husband.
Along this journey of solving the mystery, she seems to find love as well, when she falls for the old woman’s grandson. This movie has been adapted from a novel, written by James Michael Pratt, and is of the same name. The movie is very heartwarming and is bound to make you shed a few tears. If not because of the movie, maybe because of the fact that the old woman is played by Betty White. Whether you watch any other Hallmark movie or not, this one is a must-watch!
Paris is the city of love! Everyone knows that, obviously, but in this movie, it is also the city of reunions. Lindsey Wilson, who is a successful businesswoman and the protagonist of this film, travels to Paris with her daughter. The reason for her travel was to enroll her daughter in an art school, with the same teacher she has when she was young.
To her surprise, she gets reacquainted with her first love, who is a hotelier. It has been 20 years since she was last in Paris. What more surprises await her? This movie is the perfect film for you if you are a sucker for first loves, Paris, and traveling!
A Country Wedding
This is one of Hallmark’s best films and rightfully so! The story follows a country singer, who seems to be happy with everything in his life. He has a successful career and is about to marry Catherine, a famous actress, but before that, he decides to go back to his hometown to sell his childhood home.
While he is in his hometown, he rekindles his relationship with his childhood sweetheart, Sarah. Sarah is a cowgirl, and she owns a small ranch. She inspires him to write songs again and shows him the little joys of life as they both fall in love once again. Aside from the wonderful story, you get to see a picturesque landscape, which is why we recommend this movie!
A Royal Christmas
Don’t we all love a story like Cinderella? A prince sweeps the girl off her feet and they ride off into the sunset! No doubt, it is an overused plot, but it is still a good one if executed properly. Hallmark has done a great job in doing exactly that.
Emily Taylor, a seamstress in her father’s tailoring shop, comes to learn that her boyfriend is actually a prince. And he happens to be the prince of Cordinia. After traveling with him to his home country, she meets his family and his mother, Queen Isadora. Unlike Prince Leopold, her boyfriend, the queen is not the least bit happy about her. So, she does what she deems best. She tries to drive the two apart! Like we said before, a typical plot, but nicely carried out.
All of My Heart
If you believe in the opposites attract theory, you’ll love this one! Jenny, a young caterer, discovers that she has inherited half a country home, and of course, is very thrilled to hear that. To start a new life, she decides to move in there but discovers that she has to share the home with a Wall-street trader, who just so happens to have a completely opposite idea of renovation for the home.
