Another month and another chance to contribute money to charity. Add your 5 words (or less!) to mine in a comment 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 $8 to start the round.
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.

I haven’t seen any of those. 😦
Not even The Judge? You should 🙂
I saw The Judge (wow – I actually saw a recent movie?!) and I would agree that it had all the right elements of a great movie but somehow didn’t add up to great. Still, it didn’t disappoint on anything but just didn’t go beyond good.
If I would have had unlimited words to use, that it exactly what I would have said 🙂
The Raven —- Love Edgar & John – odd story (I’m cheating and calling an ampersand ‘not a word’ – LOL).
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation —– Not fav MI – thrills still! (And I think Tom is getting a little ‘long in the tooth’ for this franchise. Time to change it up.)
Coming out of my break to chime in here. 🙂
I have only seen the first MI, Jason says we saw the 2nd but I don’t remember a thing about it! I was in the mood for this so it worked.
I haven’t seen any movies recently. I seem to be more on a television kick.
We’re binge-watching The Killing right now, so 2 weeks with no movies 🙂
Another month and I haven’t seen any of these … too much binge watching tv series I think lol. Maybe this weekend, hubby and I are feeling miserable with head colds so might be good time for a movie.
We’re binge watching The Killing, old tv series right now. It’s really the first time we’ve done it! Hope you feel better soon 🙂
