  1. I’ve seen all of these movies and I agree with your reviews of Salt and Just Wright.

    However, I just loved Law Abiding Citizen and Couples Retreat! Here is what I have to say about those:
    Law Abiding Citizen-Gerard…Need I say more?
    Grade A

    Couples Retreat-Cute yet serious comedy.
    Grade B

    I know I’m in the minority of people that like Couples Retreat, but there was just something so honest to me about that movie that I loved it!

  2. Salt. Just watched that one last week and I thought it was one of the worst spy/action movies I’d ever seen. I was laughing in places I shouldn’t and had it figured out from the beginning. Angelina Jolie really didn’t pull it off for me and the plot was ridiculous! I just couldn’t allow myself to have fun with that one. Glad you were able to. Haven’t seen the others yet. Great reviews. I want to get back into participating in this one too.
