October’s 5 Word Movie Reviews – Win Money for Charity

This was a male dominated month at the movies for me!  I need to recover with a nice romantic comedy.

Every time you add 5 words of your own to one of my 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 herePLEASE leave a clear 5 word comment so I can give credit for it.

Please join the fun :)  We’re up to $78!!

You can add reviews to any of my past movie posts AND see who is in the contributing lead here.

  1. I haven’t seen Looper or Cowboy Aliens and it’s been a long time since I saw The Outsiders. Since it’s for charity I’ll say this: Young me liked this one.

  3. Looper was soooo good. I’m sad that it isn’t become a huge blockbuster because it deserves it.
    My review might go something like: Sci-fi thriller with a heart.

    • I don’t understand why there hasn’t been more buzz. When we went to the movies a few weeks ago on a Saturday night it was me, Jason, and some annoying guy who kept making weird noises from two rows back. It needs more love.

  6. Looper is on that I have to watch for sure. Marcus loved it! Now the Cowboys and Aliens struck me as crazy stupid but I’m a bit swayed by your grade so I would give it a shot!!
