I’ve been a fan of Hallmark movies as long as I can remember. Even as far back as the mid-2000s I remember watching the “Love Comes” movies. Back then, they only did one or two Christmas-themed movies a year. In 2008 they did a whopping FIVE Christmas themed movies! Given how much I love Christmas, I was in heaven. Cut to 2018, and Hallmark comes out with 38 Christmas movies. That’s more than all the movies they put out in 2013 alone!

At the close of the 2018 Hallmark movie season I ranked all of that year’s Hallmark Christmas movies, but it was very unscientific. Being a spreadsheet nerd, I promptly created a spreadsheet to begin creating a real ranking of all of the Hallmark movies I watch.

Your Hallmark Movies Ranked

Below is the up-to-date table of all Hallmark movies I watched beginning in 2019, ranked from most favorite to least (including some I watched again).  Also, the mystery movies that appear on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries use a different scorecard but are still ranked based on their final %.  They are differentiated by the “(HMM)” that appears after their title.

Lastly, not every movie has a review, but those with linked titles have reviews you can read and comment on.  Or, if you want to comment directly on this page about the rankings, simply scroll below the table and let me know your thoughts!

13 thoughts on “Hallmark Movie Rankings

  1. Im a math person, and I LOVE THIS. I dont necessarily agree with some of the ratings (though I love Polaha and Tyler Hines!) – but the idea, the thought, the ranking categories, the weighting — all of it is awesome and warms my heart. 🙂 Thank you for creating your website!

      1. Hope you will continue to add to the list, since I was just checking to see if some of my faves (chemistry wise at least) ranked similarly to yours – christmas pen pals (not hallmark, but christmas) and picture a perfect christmas were two that I did enjoy. Thanks again for creating such a thorough website and movie reviews.

        1. Oh my word, Hunza! THANK YOU for mentioning Picture a Perfect Christmas – I DID review that one but forgot to add it to this table! It’s now added (it scored 66.4% and the movie title is linked to the review).

          I won’t necessarily rate/rank the non-Hallmark movies or put them on this page’s table, but in last year’s final ranking of the 2018 Christmas movies I did name some honorable mentions from other networks (I didn’t do that this year since I only saw 3-4 non-Hallmark Christmas movies by the time I posted my 2019 final ranking). If I had to pick a couple non-HC movies though, I’d name “Klaus” on Netflix and “A Christmas Movie Christmas” on UPtv as two worth honorable mentions. I heard Lifetime’s “A Christmas Wish” and “Twinkle All the Way” were fabulous, but haven’t seen either (although I do have “Wish” on my Tivo at the moment).

          1. I look forward to following your updates and ratings! Chad Michael Murray this weekend! Whoop whoop! Did I just date myself by saying that 🙂

  2. I was looking to see how you ranked A Joyous Christmas, but I didn’t see it listed. Did I miss it, or have you not listed it yet?

    1. I haven’t seen that one since it came out in 2017, which is before I started ranking the movies. Since it has Michael Rady in it, I SHOULD rewatch it!

      1. I definitely like it, and as a fellow Michael Rady fan, I am interested in your opinion. I had no idea he could sing as well.

  3. I wonder if there is a way to find out the actual Nielsen ratings for the Christmas movies this year. It would be interesting to see which ones were watched by many and if there were any that had a lower viewership.
    Lastly, is there a forum to discuss the movies? There are SO many fans I’m surprised something like this doesn’t exist – not even a Facebook page?
    Thanks for this page and your opinions!

    1. Just search on FB for “hallmark” and you’ll find tons of groups you can join. As for the Nielsen, I don’t think those are released with any regularity but I do know at least a couple of this year’s movies have been the #1 cable program other than sports.

  4. Love your website. Created my own spreadsheet of Christmas movies & would love to see how you set yours up to see if we’re measuring the same things. One movie we totally disagree on is A Homecoming for the Holidays, although clearly we agreed the maturity of the male character was refreshing, THANK YOU HALLMARK.

      1. Thank you Jane. Since jumping in & writing that comment/question, I’ve looked around your site & found the categories for scoring & your Bingo cards & it’s actually the Bingo cards that relate what I record… things like, was there a Christmas tree lighting, Skating, Snowman… as well as typical romance movie tactics like the almost kiss, the accidental fall & my pet peeve, the misunderstanding.

        I have a lot of reading to do in your site, first on movies I’ve rated & the others… and I’m sure I will be in touch throughout that process.
