October’s 5 Word Movie Reviews

October was a very busy month around here so I am surprised that we managed to see three movies.  And that I like them all.

If you’ve seen any of these 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.

Sweet piggy  fairy tale.  Fun.

  2. From what I have heard about Precious, it only confirms what you have said in your review: too hard to watch!

    • I was not in the mood for it and almost walked away a few times. Somehow I stuck it out to the end.
