These are the movies I’ve watched this month and I’ve given each one a grade and 5 words to describe it. There are two ways to actively participate. One, if you’ve seen any of the movies leave me your 1-5 words in the comments and I’ll add them to the post. Or, if you are feeling ambitious and want to do this on your own blog leave me a link in the comments and I’ll add it to the bottom of the post. Of course, you can just browse and enjoy too 🙂

I love the way you do this, and I may have to join in. I’ve been playing around with how to incorporate movies onto my blog, but unable to find a way I liked. Reviewing every movie I watch like it’s a book is a bit too much for me, but this whole 5 word deal is great!
Oh, I do hope you’ll join me!
1. Loved every bit of the visuals. It’s amazing.
2. Great story, very sad movie.
3. Haven’t seen it but will try to this weekend.
4. Totally didn’t like it, very disturbing.
Richard, thanks for playing! Which movie didn’t you like?
I haven’t seen even one of your movies. But I would like to see Freedom Writer. I enjoy these monthly wrap-ups. You do so well with the five words.
I love AVATAR! It’s my favorite for now!
I love your words for Blades of Glory … pretty much on the money.
The only other one I saw was Avatar. I guess my 5 words would be: See it on big screen.
Haven’t seen Avatar yet but soooo want to. Soloist was beautiful and the acting was superb. Blades of Glory was soooo lame.
The only one I’ve seen is The Soloist and I’d say it – highlights plight of the homeless. The book is great too and just a little bit different.
Avatar is one of the best movies I had seen this year (well, not that I’ve seen many but you get the point, LOL). It’s a pity that I didn’t get to watch it in 3D version.
It’s nice to know that you still loved it. For me the story was okay, but it was the special effects that were amazing.
I love the five words idea. I haven’t seen Avatar yet, but want to. Actually I haven’t seen any of these.
I loved Freedom Writers. I thought it was very heartbreaking what all those kids went through.
I liked Untraceable too. It was fast paced thriller.
a stunning graphic masterpiece
Avatar: Unobtainium? Really? but visually stunning.
Freedom Writers: Dangerous Minds was done better.
