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’.
This month you can give money to charity by contributing your 5 words (Details here). Please join the fun 🙂 Past 5 Word Reviews here.

I’ve only watched Possession – I actually thought it was better than the book!
Sorry. Haven’t seen any of these. I gave you a few yesterday on the older ones. 🙂
I’ve heard of the Hot Tub one but none of the other ones. They sound interesting!
I haven’t seen any of these either. But I must have seen My Man Godfrey as a teenager at some point. I was such a old-movie fanatic back then.
I thought it would have been better if Godfrey hadn’t fallen for that silly Carole Lombard!
Hot Tub Time Machine: Fun cast. Better than expected.
And that is the only one I saw. Here are some other movies I saw though and my five word reviews.
127 Hours: very intense with funky vibe.
Black Swan: whew! Freakier than expected.Ewwwwwwww!
If I’d had a few more words I’d have added Beat Expectations to Hot Tub Time Machine 🙂
Can’t wait to see these other two!
Possession: Surprisingly, better than the book.
Home at the End of the World: Book much better than movie.
Hot Tub Time Machine:
rude, crude and totally hilarious!
Possession – Book’s boring; loved the film.
Only one I have seen is Hot Tub and it was just a silly fun movie!
A Home at the End of the World: Love Colin, hated the film.
