This 5 Fandom Friday topic is Favorite Christmas Movies! Since I recently already put together a comprehensive list, I am taking this opportunity to share My Favorite Hallmark and Lifetime Network Holiday Films. I have become more and more addicted to the sweet silliness of their pictures over the last several years, and now it does not feel like the Christmas season without them.
Jules, played by Katie McGrath, is taking care of her orphaned nephew and niece when their grandfather suddenly wants to introduce them to their royal heritage. Roger Moore is adorably grumpy, and Jules schools uppity royals with her knowledge of antiques.
Brandon Routh did a Hallmark movie! He is a firefighter that saves a cat who then decides to adopt him and cuddle in his chairs. This is actually a good romantic comedy as well, and the female lead is a strong intelligent woman.
Clark Gregg and his real life wife Jennifer Grey star as two people thrown together by shenanigans who initially do not get along. It is a fairly done plot, but they are just so amazing it elevates the material. Coulson Does Christmas is what I have renamed this movie in my mind.
Jane Seymour and her actual daughter are supporting actresses in this feature, and it is lovely to see them mesh so well together on-screen!
