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’ve noted airplane movies because I’m not sure a nervous flyer like me should be completely trusted to give an accurate grade.

I love the five words rule. (50 First Dates is the best summary!)
I love this. It’s amazing how five words can sum up a movie.
Wall-E – Overrated. (Just my opinion)
Well that just breaks my heart. I fell in love with Wall-E. I had no idea what it was about before we watched so I had no expectations.
• Pixar does it again.
• Perhaps Pixar’s best yet.
I love Wall-E!
I like 50 First Dates better than you apparently did, but it wasn’t spectacular.
• Adam Sandler plays modern-day Prince Charming
Well, I did see 50 First Dates on the plane so I cannot be held responsible for my thoughts. I was just trying to forget where I was!
Wow, you had a wide range of movies this month – from A to F. I may be the only one in the country who loved Everythings Fine. My husband said it was a complete downer. But Robert DeNiro was so real and so touching. I cried.
Then you are who they made the movie for, Margot! I loved DeNiro, but really disliked his kids.
Poor Val…he’s just not having any luck is he??? And to think I used to drool over him in Top Gun!!!
This is no Top Gun!
I haven’t seen a single one of those movies!
I’d definitely recommend the first two 🙂
I like the Wall-E one!
Gosh you pick some I didn’t know existed. I have to be the only one who really didn’t like Wall-E. I think some movies you have to watch in the theater. 50 first dates was okay, but like you said not that bad.
Well, Hannah also thought Wall-E was overrated. I, of course, think you are both wrong 😉 I just fell in love with that little machine.
Wall-E was sweet, but a bit heavy-handed with the future forecast.
I LOVED 50 first dates. It suffered from Rob Reiner’s dumb humor, but I enjoyed the concept of falling in love with (the same) someone every day, or not. I thought it was sweet & romantic. Plus Drew Barrymore & Adam Sandler are 2 actors I really like, more for their personality/ordinary quality than their acting abilities.
This is a fun way to review movies!
What’s up with all of the Wall-E haters? I remain completely on the Wall-E bandwagon.
I did love the concept of falling in love with the same person everyday. It a good goal for everyone 🙂
I totally liked 50 first dates 🙂
I really like Drew Barrymore 🙂
2 movies i really really want to see – Sit Stay and Play Dad and Everybody’s fine!
I like Drew Barrymore, but don’t have much patience for Adam Sandler. Well, except in their first movie together, The Wedding Singer. Loved that one.
I like seeing your reviews in this format. I loved Wall-E … but I think it was too slow for kids. My son had a tough time getting through the opening!
Wall-E: sweet, endearing, romantic, fantasy flick
50 First Dates: Disappointing. They’ve done much better.
50 First Dates: Sweet story, goofy, typical Sandler
50 First Dates– Silly, unbelievable, but semi-charming romance.
