June’s movies & $ for charity

Lots of good movies this month!

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.

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.  This is ongoing so you can leave your 5 words anytime.

We’re up to $34

The male and female leads, wearing battle armor, holding large guns, and looking battle-worn, stand against an urban background devastated by war. The sky is golden, meteors are falling, and Nelson's Column can be seen in the background.Edge of Tomorrow, 2014 (Cast-Tome Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Brendan Gleeson)                      Grade A-

    The only one of those I’ve seen is The Lincoln Lawyer and it’s been a while. (I’m anxious to see Jersey Boys, though!) About The Lincoln Lawyer, I’d say: Not as good as the book. No surprise there, right?

      The movies rarely are! Jesey Boys was good, it probably didn’t help that we had just seen the show last month! We thought two of the actors on the touring Broadway show were better than the movie actors!

  2. Tara says:

    LOVED The Lincoln Lawyer!! I read the book about a week before the movie came out and was surprised how well it stuck to the bookml. But in five words: Ryan Phillipe was soooo creepy!

  3. Literary Feline says:

    I enjoyed Lincoln Lawyer, both the book and the movie. I saw Edge of Tomorrow this past week and enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I am glad you did too.

    I can’t believe I’ve seen most of your list this time!

    Dead Again sounds very familiar and I know I saw Color of Money, I could never forget a Paul Newman movie. But I can’t remember details! I haven’t seen anything current. The last movie I saw in the theater was the latest Star Trek, and I dragged myself there because of the special effects.

    Jersey Boys – chipmunk singing ruined great music 😉
