September’s Movies

Great theater month!

Now it’s your turn.  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 $53

  1. I hardly ever see movies so it’s hard for me to participate, but I love reading your synopses!

  2. The only one I’ve seen is This Is Where I Leave You – your 5 words are spot on but I’ll try to come up with my own: Family dysfunction at its best.

  3. I haven’t seen any of these. It’s hard to see the movies I’d like to over here. But I’m looking forward to some of them. Like This is Where I leave You!

  5. I am not a movie watcher/goer, unfortunately, so have seen none of these…Maybe if they are on Netflicks I will catch one of two!

  6. I really liked The Maze Runner. I do wish we had the opportunity to know the characters better, but I did like the maze and I was never bored with the movie. I am looking forward to reading the book at some point.

    I saw Gone Girl this past weekend, and really liked it.

  8. We had a rare date night last week and was so bummed about the selection of movies in the theater. We opted for the Denzel movie (can’t remember the name) and it was good. I would have liked to see This is Where I Leave You but knew Scott wouldn’t be into it. Will catch the rest on “video”
