June’s 5 Word Movie Reviews

Two documentaries in a month is unusual, but both were worthwhile.  My husband won our March Madness bet and I bet you can guess which one we saw at the theater for his third movie choice.

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 always just comment
