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.

  1. My friend and I wanted to see Enough Said but didn’t get to the theater in time. For Gravity I’d say: Lots of breathing in space.

  3. Unfortunately, my mind is too worn out to come up with creative answers. But I do remember really liking The Candidate. Saw Gravity tonight. Gave it a 3.0 (out of 4.0).

  4. The only one I’ve seen is the Accused but it was so long ago…That is a movie I will never watch again. It’s important but not one I can ever rewatch.

  5. I don’t know what I was thinking, Stacy, but this past weekend I saw Bad Grandpa. My sense of humor doesn’t run the way those movies often do, and so I found myself rolling my eyes more than laughing during the film. There were a couple of moments I found laugh out loud funny though.
