Royal Wedding Watch 2018 continues with something comparable to really bad deja vu. As a follow-up to watching Hallmark's William and Catherine, we decided to watch Lifetime's William and Kate. Basically, we took one for the team and watched the same movie twice. As a bonus, Michelle recaps two additional royal-themed Hallmark movies, Royal Hearts and Royal Matchmaker. 

Mar 23, 2018

We are just under 2 months away from the Royal Wedding, 2018 edition so Michelle and Stephanie watched the made for TV movie about Wills and Kate.  No, not the popular one.  The crappy one Hallmark made in 2011.  Also, witness the worst casting for Princess Diana ever caught on film.  Also, Jean Smart from Designing Women plays Camilla Parker Bowles and Victor Garber plays prince Charles.  We can't make this shit up.  It's William and Cate : A Royal Romance.

Mar 9, 2018

You asked.  We Answered.  We watched the 2016 remake of Mother May I Sleep With Danger, starring James Franco, Tori Spelling and a bunch of emo teens.  This movie had like 97% more blood and 100% more My Chemical Romance knock off tunes.  We didn't hate it.  And sometimes thats the best review we can give.

Feb 23, 2018

This movie is about as far as you can get from our normal fare.  We were joined by Ollie Brady from the Best Acquaintances podcast to talk about the movie Detonator.  Or Death Train.  The movie so nice, they named it twice.  This film stars Patrick Stewart, Pierce Brosnan, Christopher Lee and the dude who played Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs.  It also stars a death train.  Ya'll, this movie has like, 200% more explosions than we've ever seen on Lifemark

Welcome to the first of what feels like an endless installment of Meghan Markle movies.  Kicking of Markle season is Dater's Handbook from Hallmark.  This movie has just enough mini-golf to keep us interested for a good 20 or 30 minutes. Also a middle aged woman who loves REO Speedwagon so we get a glimpse of what Steph will be like in about 15 years.  We also get to hear Michelle swoon over Ted Bundy.  As if this movie wasn't weird enough.

Jan 25, 2018

Did you miss when we watched A Christmas Prince?  Have no fear because this movie is EXACTLY the same. Its A Royal Winter from Hallmark. Michelle and Steph talk about a new, much more royal adjacent rating system for these movies.  Also there's a PSA about why your souvenir hat shouldn't matter when you find yourself in an alley with a stranger.

Jan 13, 2018

We are going back to our roots with this 1999 Lifetime classic, Ultimate Deception.  It stars Yasmine Bleeth and Richard Greco and a whole lot of over the top acting.  Stephanie is so very very into it.  Plus we learn about the time that Michelle's grandparents turned a crib into a bar 

Dec 29, 2017

Well the weather outside is frightful, but this movie is kinda delightful?  I mean, its not great but I didn't want to rip my eyeballs out so bonus?  

Playing the part of Michelle this week from the Beckett To The Future podcast (, its Rachel Rosing 

So sit back with a warm cup of cocoa, put on your best pair of Converse and settle in for a tale of romance and what happens when cousins marry to preserve a royal bloodline.

Dec 8, 2017

No, not THAT Home for the Holidays.  You mean you haven't heard of the 1972 ABC Made For TV Movie starring Jessica Walter, Sally Field and Walter Brennan?  Well now you have.  Its kinda like that other Home For The Holidays but like real 70's and real murdery.  We might have found our new favorite Christmas movie.

Nov 25, 2017

Michelle and Stephanie take a moment to talk about some things they are thankful for.  Mostly its food and British Comedy.  So relax, put on your eatin' pants, curl up with some leftovers and find out some of Stephanie and Michelle's favorite things.

Nov 10, 2017

We know its November.  We know Christmas is 6 weeks away.  Do we care? No.  Christmas is officially on here at Lifemark studios.  This week, we watched Window Wonderland.  It has Naomi Judd who is absolute perfection.  And department store windows which are decidedly less perfect.

Oct 27, 2017

Happy Halloween, Lifemarkers! Michelle totally pulled a trick when making Stephanie watch this movie.  Its like the necco wafers of Halloween movies.   We watched the Disney Original Movie Don't Look Under The Bed. Also, Steph and Michelle try to figure out the physics behind the Boogie Man, Beautiful Mind like.

Oct 13, 2017

Happy Shocktober, boys and ghouls!  Ready to get scared?  There is a whole lot of murder in this week's movie, Ten: Murder Island.  Sadly, there's not a lot of plot.  But there IS a lot of strobe lights, so we'll call this one even.

Sep 29, 2017

Stephanie's fear of teenagers is confirmed with this week's movie, Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal  Michelle takes us through all our options when it comes to Cheerleader magazines.  Also we find out that cheerleader magazines are a thing.

It's a movie where Sharon from Grease 2 becomes a kleptomaniac.  Thats most of what you need to know before watching Portrait of a Teenage Shoplifter.  Michelle and Stephanie also come clean about the things they stole as teens.

Episode 50 is a big deal. So is having a new show on the Ear Trumpet Audio network.  So, to celebrate both, we invited our newest podcast hosts, Jake and Carrie from Love YA Like Crazy to do an episode exchange.  I don't think they knew quite what they were getting themselves into when they said yes, but here we are and they've suffered through The Shunning, starring Michael Landon Jr.
