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 to describe the movie.
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 $88.
