Welcome to day-two, all! :D How have y'all been enjoying the party so far? I'm a bit behind on reading everyone's great posts, but I plan to remedy that soon. :D
Today I bring to you...a movie review!
Signed, Sealed, Delivered: For Christmas ~ Hallmark Movies & Mysteries
Shane, Oliver, Norman, and Rita work together in the Dead Letter Office to answer all notes to Santa, and are especially touched by the plea from a young girl who just wants her mom home from the hospital for Christmas. The team comes together like never before to help the child, but soon discovers that they have reignited their own faith in the most wonderful time of the year. Based on the beloved Hallmark Channel original series, Signed, Sealed, Delivered For Christmas is an inspirational holiday entertainment for the whole family.
A dear friend of mine had been telling me for awhile (something crazy like 6 months...) that I needed to watch Signed, Sealed, Delivered. She mentioned it, told me of its greatest, and even sent me the link to watch the first movie on YouTube. (Because is Faith gonna spent money on something she might not even like? Not often, friends. Not often.)
To keep this long story semi-short, let's just say that the aforementioned epic friend sent me a package for my birthday. And it was the first SSD movie. *grins* I told you she's awesome. Soon thereafter (maybe even that night) I watched the first movie. And officially fell.in.love. (I was legit online ordering every SSD available within 24 hours.) It's an amazing series, peeps, so what can I say?
I love SSD and I love Christmas movies, so this one is a particular favorite. *all the hearts* I'm supposed to be writing a semi-coherent review here though, not giving you a short explanation of my SSD history. So let's dive in.
First off...the dance. For postal workers. (Can I just say I love all the postal-y-stuff in these movies?! It's so cool!!!) I found the picture above online and I love it. Oliver and Norman's reactions when the girls walked in was great. ;D
And we can't forget that this is the scene where we get to know Jordan a bit. He's pretty cool...and that's all I'm gonna say about that.
On a mission to solve the mystery behind the last letter the post office received (this one addressed to God), the Postables (my adorable foursome) head over to the hospital and masquerade as a group of carolers. *glances back to above picture* Even the dog doesn't believe that one.
The Postables idea to have a nativity play in the lobby of the hospital was ingenious. And it turns out so well too! C'mon, y'all, just take a look at that wise man...err, bear.
Another thing I loved about this SSD episode was alllllll the faith content. Like, I was in tears during Shane and Oliver's precious convo. <33 <3 Not sure if y'all can read those captions *points up the page* but if you haven't saw the movie, I wouldn't suggest it anyway. xD #semi-spoilers
All the way around, I would heartily recommend this movie (and the whole series/show). If you've seen some SSD, then hopefully you've saw this one. If you haven't, then what are you waiting for! It'd be better to watch the series in order, but...I guess you could watch this one if you haven't saw the others...if you really wanted to. ;)
