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. We’re up to $74.

I haven’t watched any of these movies. I have read The Lovely Bones, but have been avoiding the movie because of all the negative reviews.
The in-between in your imagination will never be satisfied by what you see on screen.
I think I’m the only one that preferred the film version of Lovely Bones to the book! Hahaha.
Yay, I saw one of these!
Midnight in Paris – Roaring 20s through nostalgic eyes.
Loved Holes…great way to compare the book and movie for students! Hated the last one…like you said that book is so much better 😀
Holes: Surprisingly entertaining with Shia LeBouf (sp).
The Lovely Bones: Meh adaptation of awesome book.
Oh I have only seen insider man. Might have to check out the others 🙂
So I guess I’ll skip The Lovely Bones as a movie!
Devastating yet strangely uplifting movie.
Midnight in Paris: Owen Wilson? No. Movie great.
