November Movies

Okay, participation has been slow this year and I’d love to donate $100 to a deserving charity this year 🙂  If you have a few minutes to browse my past movies or look at the list I hope you will.

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 $63

  1. Things have been crazy so I haven’t seen a movie in a while and haven’t seen any of these.

  2. Mockingjay and Interstellar have just started here now … and I want to see them.
    The only one I’ve seen is The Island – new-world mayhem, lame but liked 😉

  3. I think you’re the only who I’ve seen review American Hustle who has agreed with me. I think Amy Adams and, especially, Jennifer Lawrence were wonderful, but I couldn’t stand Christian Bale’s character, and I’m not that crazy about him anyway, and I really didn’t like the story. So, it probably gets a C from me.

    Even though I love Matthew McConaughey most of the time (We Are Marshall) and Anne Hathaway all of the time, I don’t think I could take another space movie. And didn’t Sandra Bullock kind of ruin that for any other actor?

    My husband wants to see Fury, but I’m not sure. Maybe he can go see that and I’ll go see St. Vincent or something pretty and light and funny.

    I give Frozen an A. I loved it as much as the kids, and have probably watched as many times as they have. I’m a sucker for a clumsy heroine. 🙂

    • I thought Jennifer Lawrence stole every scene she was in in American Hustle! Interstellas is VERY different than Gravity. In Gravity there ‘may’ have been too little going on but in Interstellar there was probably too much. I liked it though.

    • Heehee. When I heard all the hype about Frozen and how GOOD it was for girls I was excited. But I was a little disappointed. Not with the music though, loved that!

  5. Nope, haven’t seen any of them – not even Frozen, my niece’s current obsession.

  6. I have been out of the movie watching loop for a few months now! I’ve seen bits and pieces of Frozen, and need to sit down and watch it from start to finish!
