I think anything is an improvement as long as they quit doing Hallmark Standard Plots 1 and 2. What are plots 1 and 2? They are the retelling of the same plot over and over and over. 75% of Hallmark movies seem to fall into these two plots. With most of those following plot #1.
* A woman is having dinner with her boyfriend (who ALWAYS looks very much like s slime-ball finance guy) at a very nice restaurant in a big city (always in a big city). She is under the impression he is about to propose to her. Yet he does not.
* That night or the next day while still devastated over the lack of the proposal. She gets word that she most come back home (always to a small town). Because one of her parents is in trouble or has died.
* Right away she runs into her old high school flame. Slowly the old feelings come back for both of them for each other.
* Just as they really realize that are falling in love again. Her boyfriend from the big city shows up and right away shows he is a bigger slime-ball than he first appeared to be. Finally she tells him to hit the road.
* The woman and her old bf kiss (in Hallmarkland this is the same as being engaged) - THE END
* A woman lives on her family ranch / dude ranch or farm, usually a pumpkin farm that has been in the family for many decades. But sadly the place has fallen on hard times. They are very close to defaulting on their loan and losing the place.
* Somewhere in a big city (again big city bad, small town good) there is a big developer corporation that somehow has found out about the family's place being in dire straits. The CEO sends his own son to the small town where the ranch/pumpkin patch is. To buy up the place ASAP so that bulldozers can get moving on building their next 1200 room resort.
* Of course there is conflict between the two over this. But he starts to see the appeal of the place and of her. In the mean time his dad is calling a few times asking his son has he bought the place yet. Time is money, yada.. yada.. yada..
* Finally seeing he has become very twitterpated (Yes it is a real word and if you are the kind of person to watch Hallmark movies. Then I am sure you know where it comes from). The son calls his dad and tells him if he could just see the place then he would see how magical it is there and why they should help the woman's family keep their ranch. If they are in Montana maybe it is a dental floss ranch **.
* At the very last minute before the family has to sell the place. The dad shows up in his limo and it takes just 5 seconds to see the magic of the place that took his son half the movie to see. The dad agrees with the son to help save it. Finally the son and woman kiss. Marriage and babies is assumed to happen as the credits role.
[ **extra points if you get the dental floss ranch reference. ]
You nailed it with "A Lost Valentine!" Why has that not been on Hallmark in such a long time? Also, "The Magic of Ordinary Days" is another great one, which has nit been on Hallmark in some time. A Crown for Christmas, A Christmas Love Story, Operation Christmas, Christmas at Pemberley Manor, A Bramble House Christmas, are just a few of my favs. I have never seen #9 that was mentioned but would like to see it. Hallmark has such great movies and is one of my favorite channels.
These are all favorites of mine too actually. When I think of all the hundreds of ones that I love, I never seen a Hallmark movie I didnt enjoy, the ones I love most are The Christmas Card, Christmas Magic, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, and The Lost Valentine.
I watch hallmark movies to just enjoy. It is my decision to watch (and sometimes my husband does too if he wants to spend those moments with me). For those who do not enjoy this type of entertainment there are many other choices out there to choose from. I just don’t get the negativity however. Why the thumbs down when one has a choice to change the channel or choose to do something else. Hallmark, thank you!
I have loved Hallmark Movies for years even though it's the same plot, the same love stories just different people and places. For a long time my favorite was The Christmas Card. I recorded it and left it on my TV year round then I bought it. I'm not sure how much longer I'll be watching Hallmark Movies seems as though some of the 2021 movies have lost there Wholesome Family Friendly Ways. I'm very disappointed in Hallmark and so are many of my friends and family. Doesn't seem like there are any movies left to watch with Family Values! Too Bad, We Could Always Count On Hallmark!
Im sorry but all these are more current so I dont thing you can claim of all time there are older movies are better than the lower 5 ...they maybe good but mot the top of all time and to suggest they are is crazy...a lot of them were more male oriented watch list... Whete is Sarah Plain and Tall...Or Christmas in Conway...your not even close
There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh, and it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all
We can't go on
That someone, somewhere soon make a change
We're all a part of God's great big family
And the truth, you know, love is all we need.
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day, just you and me.
Oh, send them your heart
So they know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
And so we all must lend a helping hand.
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let's start giving
Oh, there's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day, just you and me
When you're down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe there's no way we can fall
Well, well, well, well let us realize
Oh, that a change can only come
When we stand together as one, yeah, yeah, yeah
The change could come and well make a better day if you sign the petition to have Hallmark broadcast Parmadale’s Resurrection, pet therapy TV shows where 90% of advertising profits could go towards humanitarian life saving that could equal in year what it has taken 37 years for We Are The World to amass, ending just about all forms of human suffering, along with 5% being donated to The City of Parma and Parma City School District to help save a city in desperate need of infrastructural financial and spiritual salvation.
The shows could make Parma’s schools safe, for they are literally crumbling, putting in danger our 10,200 students who are constantly bullied because our teachers aren’t enough to care to deal with it. Then have to walk as far as 3 miles one way in sometimes polar vortexes because we have so few buses. Then they come home to one of the 12,000 of our 36,000 homes whose basements flood so often they are unhealthy to live in, with elderly constantly having to risk their lives to haul out flood damaged belongings.
The estimated yearly $5 billion of yearly advertising profits could go towards such greatness as providing vetting and socialization for 50 million community cats. Virtually every community cat in the now not very “United” States of America, Canada and Mexico (the entire continent) could be kept from dying by providing life saving pet therapy.
Or it could be used to take 185,195 “Nicole Curtis specials” condemned properties and return them to their former glory, like was done in Minneapolis West Colfax, to house 2,777,900 homeless people, like was doing at the T.P Healy property. Before blm destroyed most of Lisa Bender’s Ward 10 and other cities.
Or it could be used to provide the lifesaving early detection 3D Mammograms for 1,669,100 poverty level women who face the constant doomsday of eviction or utility disconnections and for them the $300 for a mammogram for the lump they felt taking a shower will mean choosing between food, water, heat or finding out early enough to save their lives.
Or it could be used for a year’s medical treatments for 358,000 poverty level AIDS, Heart Attack, Stoke, Cancer, Diabetes and others, who have to spend about $15,000 to $18,000 a year just to survive with the hope there will someday be cures.
Parmadale’s Resurrection will be like what happened at Parmadale but with pets providing the love, care and compassion that pet therapy was only equaled by Parmadale nuns. Instead of seeing 1984 Emmy Winner and multi nominated Tom Selleck beating up the bad guy. Hallmark viewers would see pets healing the suffering of people with AIDS, providing ptsd comfort for rape and domestic violence victims, the homeless who would have nowhere to go but Parmadale cottages, Autistic and Down’s Syndrome and Autistic children or the Shriners Love to The Rescue like kids. Perhaps providing a covid scenic park like place to quarantine instead of a lonely apartment. Along with a world of human suffering that pets heal like no other force of nature can.
What could be a better way to feel better on a low T-Cell count day, then taking a rescue dog who was near death for a walk around the place where 45,000 orphans lives were saved, feeding deer and rabbits and squirrels whose lives were saved by my efforts. Then going back to a cottage rebuilt just like the originals and have some cat sit on your lap while taking your AIDS Cocktails.
Or watching a homeless person who nearly died of hypothermia with all the shelters converted to covid testing centers and his cat who spent most of his life emaciated with the two fighting for their lives daily in some Slavic Village abandoned home saved and cuddled up in a rebuilt cottage like the one that saved Congressman and U.S Presidential Candidate’s and siblings Dennis Kucinich.
Or some kid with no legs who has to be discharged from Shriners or St. Jude’s when a front line worker tests positive for covid have a trained therapy dog getting their medicines or paraplegic legs, or something as simple as fetching the remote control.
Or a domestic abuse survivor who had nowhere to go with her assailant still not caught needing a safe place to live, having the security of a dog to walk around the site where 35,000 humanitarians came from throughout the world on September 27, 1925 to spread the word of this place where the healing of human suffering would replace electro shock therapy, ice water submersion and lobotomies with love, care and compassion that would lead to hundreds of millions of lives saved. Perhaps seeing the plaque where popes blessed the place while taking a break to sit with a community cat that strolled onto the village to take back to her cottage or the school converted to a shelter.
Or the autistic or downe’s syndrome kid whose parents died and needed a special place to live where they wouldn’t have to interact with people until getting all the proper training and heard that a large part of Parma Senior High had been converted to a Autistic, Downes Syndrome school with the advertising profits of this wonderful show in Parmadale. Where dogs and cats provided the only love they needed.
Larissa Wohl has features about their healing power and Hallmark has the American Hero Rescue Dog Awards, The Kitty Bowl. Hallmark is network about dogs and cats making people feel better, and it would be far more appropriate for their viewers to learn and be emotionally uplifted all morning long with wonderful, wholesome family pet therapy shows whose advertising profits directly heal human suffering.
What could be better to go along with their Adoption Ever After and a network that has some type of reference to rescue cats and dogs in virtually every movie too long to list in its entirety then a real life hybrid soap opera reality show where 90% of advertising profits are donated to humanitarian lifesaving to end world suffering?
This entire country and perhaps the world is in a pandemic and anger over police, ballots, riots, blm, capitol hill and just like Hallmark could provide the funds to heal the world, Their characters, most of which play what I call in my hometown social media, “Drop Dead Gorgeous Super Beautiful Heroines That Save The World (ddgsbhstws) inspired by both soap opera heroines and real word ddgsbhstws can teach us a lesson that the entire country needs to learn….
That two wrongs don’t make a right.
We need to practice what ddgsbhstws do and not blm rioters or Capitol Hill rioters do. We need to do what viewers and those blessed to have real life ddgsbhstw’s do and are inspired by
Attractiveness not attacks.
Assistance not anarchy
Aid not annihilation
Beauty not barbarism
Bravery not bricks
Care not chaos
Showing courage not throwing concrete
Dedication not demolition
Dearness not death
Eternities not eulogies
Faith not fighting
Fortitude not fear
Guts not gore
Gorgeousness not garbage
Grace not guilt
Helping not hurting
Heroism not hazards
Humanity not hate
Inspiration not incitement
Intelligence not infernos
Justice not juvenilesism
Knowledge not knuckles
Love not larceny
Maturity not mayhem
Mercy not murder
Nurturing not negativity
Openness not oppression
Parmadaleism not pandemonium
Pride not panic
Security not scaring
Sensitivity not senselessness
Smartness not sadism
Trust not terror
Tenderness not traumatizing
Unity not ugliness
Valor not violence
Vibrancy not viciousness
Victory not victim
Resilience, not rioting
Reform not revenge
Wisdom not war
Yearning not yelling.
Above this post is a pictorial tribute link for those reading this not on faceboook (fbers, just start then proceed with Megan) to the most inspirational and greatest fiction and for some real life ddgsbhstws in all of TV and the real world, most from the greatest network ever that will hopefully someday broadcast the greatest humanitarian TV shows where there once stood the most important place on earth for the healing of human suffering.

I've got to say this list was very disappointing. I have rarely watched a Hallmark movie that I have disliked some of these choices definitely prove the old adage "oldie but goodie" ... just because some of these are more recent I would much rather watch the several older movies again and again before I watched 3 of these!
A Godwink Christmas, A Veteran's Christmas, It's Chritmad Eve, Love Under the Rainbow, Just My Type, Christmas With Holly, A Christmas to Remember, The Christmas Secret, Snow Bride. These are a few I like. Yes, a few Christmas movies, but that is Hallmark! There are host of others that are very good! Many on the list I liked and saw. Hallmark does not disappoint.
So many of those titles are not on utube and tons of utube movies are labeled as Hallmark movies and in reality the movie is full of drama , violence and is Not a Hallmark movie. Movies you just ranked # 4,7and 9 are not on Utube. I live outside the contiguous USA and I adore Hallmark movies. Yet Hallmark does not allow me to subscribe to them directly because of my location.
Please advise me about both issues and if you can assist me in finding #4,7,and9 and other Hallmark movies that are truly Hallmark and on utube. Also many Hallmark movie downloads on utube in addition, are lacking full sound throughout the movie and many have endings that are absent. Makes it not worth watching. Hope you can help. I just subscribed to your site. Thank you
