November’s 5 Word Movie Reviews & $ for Charity

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 $94.

    We went to see J. Edgar with friends and I liked it more than the rest of them. I do think his story is fascinating, but he was so obsessed with his own privacy, that not much is really known about his personal life. I thought the way the story was told was a little confusing.

    I really want to see The Kids are All Right.

    Here’s my review of one on your list:

    “The Box” sucks. Enough Said.

    Now, onto the other movies….I think The Kids are Alright might be on my Netflix list but I haven’t wanted to see The Number 23, although it’s probably on my rental queue as well because I’m sure somebody recommended it to me a while back. I like Leonardo DiCaprio but am on the fence with J. Edgar.

    If I understand this correctly, I should add 5 words to yours?

    I think the only movie I have seen from this list is The Kids are All Right –
    off the top of my head: “Kids with moms find dad”
