March’s Movies

Yes, I’m feeling rebellious so I didn’t stick to five words on a few 🙂

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.

We’re up to $82!

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.

Still Alice - Movie Poster.jpgStill Alice, 2014 (Cast-Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth)    Grade A-

Heartbreaking and powerful look at Alzheimer’s. 

Sad, but hoped for more.  (Kathy)


The Hound of the Baskervilles - 1939- Poster.pngThe Hound of the Baskervilles, 1939 (Cast-Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce, Richard Greene)    Grade B

The hound was scarier in my imagination.


A man falling back along an airplane, firing a gun.Non-Stop, 2014 (Cast-Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, Michelle Dockery)   Grade B

No shortage of terror suspects.

It certainly kept me guessing.  (Michelle)

Absurdly entertaining, love Neeson’s accent  (Sheree)


Cinderella 2015 official poster.jpgCinderella, 2015 (Cast-Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Stellan Skarsgard, Helena Bonham Carter)   Grade B

Perfect for the younger set.

Beautiful adaptation of animated original.  (Michelle)

 The dawn of 24-hour news.

  2. The only one I’ve seen is Still Alice. I would say: Sad, but hoped for more.

    • If I had read the book I would have probably felt the same way. I do think the movie skimped on a few things, but I don’t know how much sadder I would have wanted it to be.

    • One afternoon after I dropped off Gage at therapy I took myself on a date to Cinderella and had Jason pick up Gage 🙂 It’s a girl thing for sure.
