October’s 5 word movie reviews & $ of charity

I did not see Gravity in IMAX or 3D.  You may notice I watched a lot of female centered movies this month.  It was on purpose.  More on this in another post.

You know the drill, add your 5 words to mine and earn $1 for charity.  Once we get to $100 the person with the most reviews will choose the charity.  Click here to see the past winners, the charities they chose and to see the other reviews you can add to.  We’re getting close with $79 so far.  Anyone is welcome to join in at any time.
