Review & Giveaway of “When Calls The Heart – Second Chances” 8

I received a new DVD called “When Calls the Heart – Second Chances” movie from Elliott with Edify Media, Inc. and was asked to watch the movie and post a review on my blog about it.  I had already seen the the other “When Calls The Heart” movies before this, and love them, you can find my review on the first one here, the 2nd one here,  the 3rd one here, and the last one here.

I am so in love with this movie and the series, in general!  Every movie that comes out and I watch it, the story is either great being continued, or just by itself.  It’s also great to be able to watch it with my husband and our son and not worry about what is in the movie, or what is being said and have the story be one that we love to follow and see how it ends.  My son was even talking about things last night after we watched it and for a 13 year old to enjoy it means A LOT!!

The story was great, and I’m now at the edge of my seat wanting to know what will happen next.  These are some of those movies that just make you want to find the town that they are based on and visit it to meet the people and tell them how great their story is and how much you are enjoying the movies.  Michael Landon, Jr. is doing an amazing job keeping something that is based on older times to feel current and something we can mesh with and understand what’s going on.  I absolutely love them.

Thanks Elliott at Edify Media, Inc. for letting us view this movie and give our opinions on it.

Hmmm … second chance? Not sure about that. BUT, I love the look of this movie, and love that it’s family friendly.

That’s very cool to have a movie series that continues on to look forward to watching. It’s so much fun when you find something like this that you want to watch over and over again.

I’ve come to love anything that Michael Landon, Jr. has his hands in. Second chances are great, I’ve gotten one before but it so did not turn out the way I had hoped. Which was actually for the better.
