November Movie Thoughts in 5 Words

I love movies, not as much as I love books, but close.  I review movies on my Top 100 list and a few here and there for challenges, but wanted to keep a running tab on the other movies I watch.  I don’t want to review them all, so I’ll give the movie a grade and 5 words to describe it.  If you’ve seen any of these and want to add  one word of your own leave a comment and I’ll add it to my post.

  2. What a cool feature! I’ve been wondering about The Men Who Stare at Goats – that might be one my hubby and I could see together. I’m going to see The Blind Side on Tuesday and I’m really looking forward to it.

    I can’t wait to see The Blind Side! As for Goats, I liked it better than Jason, but the humor was more my style.

  3. Star Trek: Spock gets the girl, woot!

    Knowing:Lame, lame, lame, and, lame.

    Waitress: pies, love, independence, and freedom

    Great little meme you have going here! I may have to just use it myself 😉

    I never really considered making it a meme, only a month end movie review. But feel free to use it 🙂

  5. Donnie Darko is one of my daughters favourite movies! She made me watch it with her about a year ago and I did like it but the thing with the sister’s boyfriend spoiled it for me, it just wasn’t where my mind was going with this one.

    I liked it more after watching it, but there were a few questions we had, so I looked online. Apparently, you can’t really understand the true intent of the director without going to the website and doing some research. I want a movie to stand on its own. It is a cult favorite.

  6. That was a fun post, Stacy. Do it again. I like the ratings and it’s surprising how much I can tell about a movie from just five words.

    I’ll do it at the end of every month. Five words is a fun challenge. Glad you like it 🙂
