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.
I am interested in J Edgar for it’s historical aspect.
I really wanted to go see J. Edgar. Now I’m glad I didn’t.
I liked the Kids…..but the others I’ve never watched…think I’ll steer clear of them all 😀
I wish I could play! But I haven’t seen any of these
I had such high expectations for The Box and it sure was a letdown!
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”
I haven’t seen any of these. I wanted to watch J. Edgar, but it never came to our theater.
23 poster freaks me out!
The Kids Are All Right – Beautiful and touching. Highly recommended.
I’m taking the Box off right now…wow. I want to see J. Edgar eventually.
I havent heard of any of these but will not be rushing out to watch them. Except for maybe the first one.
Ugh! The Box was just idiotic. Nice premise, but come on, really?
