I received a new DVD called “When Calls the Heart – The Dance” 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 and the last one here.
These are just the type of movies that you see the title and know you’re going to love them. After seeing a few in the series, I’m just hooked and now cannot wait for the next one to come out!! With the way this one ended (I won’t blow it for you), I see things happening with 2 of the main characters that will be so wonderful in the next movie. Not sure what they will have it be about, but I absolutely love the stories and people behind these movies. Some questions I have with this one are, “how are the babies?” and “did the crazy guy who’s running the town hire those miners for a bad reason?”. I guess I’ll just have to stay tuned to the next DVD to see if any of these are answered.
I so wish that these movies would become a series on a channel that I receive. With our DISH package, we don’t get Hallmark and I so wish that we could. All in all, I absolutely love these stories, how they are appropriate for families and not focused on any certain age, group, etc.
Thanks Elliott at Edify Media, Inc. for letting us view this movie and give our opinions on it.
