January’s 5 Word Movie Reviews – Join in and win $ for charity

It was a slow movie month for me, but I’m guessing most of you have seen at least one of these.

Every time you add 5 words of your own to one of these reviews then you donate $1 to charity.  What charity, you ask?  The charity is chosen by the person who has the most reviews once we reach 100.  (Last charity here)

We’re starting with a clean slate this week.  You can add reviews to any of my past movie posts here.

  1. Let’s see for The Secret Life of Bees I’d say: Great casting does book justice. It’s been so long since I saw Down with Love I can’t remember enough about it to come up with anything. I haven’t decided if I’ll go see One for the Money or not.

  9. One for the money – oh no say it isnt so. I was so looking forward to the movie dammit. Oh well might have to be a wait till its on dvd movie then. Not that I have much time to go to the movies anyway (except for last month when inlaws babysat for us a couple of times so we could go yay).

    Life of bees – never saw, might have to check it out.

    Down with love – wow havent seen this movie in ages. Flash from the past lol Cant even remember what happened it was that memorable.

  11. Secret Life of Bees is one of my favorite books and movies. I also gave One For the Money a C+. What hurt it for me was this: Casting of Grandma and Ranger was WRONG.
