I started using Letterboxd last month thanks to Sandy. If you are interested in rating your movies and keeping tabs on your friends, check it out (sort of like Goodreads). I’m stacybuckeye if you want to follow me and get a few more than 5 words about the movies I watched.
I hope that you will take a few minutes to participate when you can each month. It’s fun for me and for everyone else who reads it. I’m not looking for a critical review, just a few words about how you felt about the movie.
Add your 5 words (or less!) 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 the other reviews you can add to. Anyone is welcome to join in at any time.
We’re at $14
