December 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.

    I want to see Blindside and Hangover. I got to see Sherlock Holmes Christmas Day and my assessment of it fits yours for the most part. The only thing I would add is that some of the bigger action sequences seemed so familiar to me–like I’ve seen them elsewhere.

    We saw it on Christmas Day too. Hope you get to see the Blindside & Hangover soon 🙂

    I love this post. First it reminded me that I need to see Moonstruck again. That is one of my favorites and I haven’t seen it in a long time. I just saw Sherlock Holmes Tuesday and loved it. For me it was UNforgetable. I haven’t seen Miss Potter but I like Rene Zellweger so it’s going on the queue. Thanks for the list and six word reviews. I bet that was hard to do.

    I hope you and your husband have a very Happy New Year’s Eve.

    I’ve added your dissent to the review 🙂 If you like Renee you will like Miss Potter. I’m not a fan and I really enjoyed it.

    I’m so disappointed that you gave Sherlock Holmes a B-, I am really looking forward to seeing that! I was also excited to see The Hangover and although it was good, it was not the most amazing movie ever like everyone seemed to think it was. I think I agree with your rating of B+.

    I am hosting a new challenge. If you’re interested, please come check it out. If not, I won’t be offended!

    Sherlock Holmes has been receiving good review and I did enjoy it, so see it! I was just expecting to like it more. I’ll check out your challenge.

    I loved The Blind Side too. I don’t know how I missed Miss Potter, but that catches my eye!

    Miss Potter is an interesting one since I knew next to nothing about her before watching it.

    This is a great way to review movies. Make it a meme so others can post their picks too. I love the movies. I have Netflixed Sherlock Holmes, so I’ll have to wait awhile. Your right, Mad Money was disappointing.

    The Blind Side: So many layers of goodness.
    Moonstruck: Timeless. Truly Cher’s best work.
    Bobby: Utterly engaging and provocative. Bravo!
    Sherlock Holmes: Fun but forgettable. Great casting.
