November 5 Word Movie Reviews – Please help me get to $100 for charity

Wow!  What a movie month I’ve had!  You may notice that every movie but one has a one word title.  Weird, right?

Now I am asking you to help me reach my goal.  I really want to gove the $100 to charity this month!  To do that I need you to add your five words to as many reviews as you can and take a look at past titles (maybe you’ve seen a movie since I originally posted) here.

Currently, you’ve contributed $93 to the charity of the top reviewer’s choice.  Right now, Beth is in the lead with 13, BermudaOnion and Kay with 11. Gofita with 10.   Teddyree has 9, Wrighty has 8 and there are others who have contributed here.

Every time you add 5 words of your own to one of my reviews then you donate $1 to charity. 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.

    • LOL. Our Lincoln audience was too tired to be restless. The only time we could catch it was at 10:15 PM!

    • By the way, Stacy, when the charity if picked, let us know. I want to match your $100 contribution. 🙂

      There’s some incentive. LOL
