March’s 5 Word Movie Reviews – Join in

Once a month I feature the movies I’ve seen for the first time with a 5 word ‘review’.  Only it’s not really a review.  For that I need your help.  I hope that you’ll add your 5 words to my 5 words and that someone else will add their 5 words and so on until we have a a fun hodgepodge of words that make up a ‘review’.   Check out my list of previous 5 word reviews and see if there are any you can contribute to, here.

As a weird coincidence, Farley Granger from Strangers on a Train died this week at the age of 85.

  5. I loved Red so much fun.

    Never saw the other two though I have seen most of Katherine Hepburns movies. Try a Katherine Hepburn and Carey Grant Romantic Comedy called Bringing up Baby. I saw it as a teen and loved it. So funny.
