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

Those were my feelings exactly with Up in the Air. Hasn’t George Clooney aged well, though?
I think he gets better looking with age. It’s really not fair 🙂
Well you all have made me curious about the ending of Up in the Air! We have it in our netflix queue, so I guess I’ll find out eventually!
You’ll have to tell us what you think!
Up In The Air was just ok for me – not a huge GC fan. But I loved Lion In Winter. I bought the dvd a while ago but haven’t watched it yet. Couldn’t stand the Diane Keaton move but I’m a huge fan of her (loved Baby Boom).
I’m not a big Clooney fan either. I can take him or leave him.
I know I’ll watch Lion in Winter again and I may even like it better the second time. The performances and dialogue were so great.
Baby Boom is a favorite of mine and I hate it when Keaton does these silly movies.
The Lion in Winter – Talk about a dysfunctional family.
I missed all of these movies. However, I’m only sad about missing Up In the Air. I don’t really care about the story. I would just watch George Clooney on the big screen. That’s enough.
Your reviews are great!! I think I just may get A-Team to watch..loved the show while growing up!
Up in the air. Funny but substantial. Love the non-clichéd ending. Thought-provoking.
The end was unexpected which was both good and bad for me.
Oh … I loved Up in the Air much more than you did. I was so glad it ended like it did. I found it most surprising. (Sorry … I’m wordy.)
Well, a B+ is a pretty good grade 🙂
Apparently I need to watch more movies. I haven’t seen any of these.
For the A-Team —
decent update, loved original more
I thought that Liam Neeson looked odd.
Up in the Air: funny, touching, sharp and clever
The Lion in Winter: Engaging but tedious at times.
Because I Said So: Terrible movie, adorable Gabriel Macht.
A-Team: Silly, fun, action-filled revenge!
