October’s Movies and $ for Charity

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 $9.

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.

  1. I haven’t seen any of those but hope to see The Martian before it leaves the theater.

  2. I haven’t had a chance to see any of those, Stacy. I saw Bridge of Spies last month and enjoyed it. I passed The Martian up to see it–I can’t resist a movie with Tom Hanks in it. 🙂 I may be getting a chance to go to the movies again next week and have to decide what I want to see. 🙂

  3. We’ve got Unbroken to watch over the holiday break. I enjoyed The Martian but I thought the audiobook was way funnier than movie. Looks like I should add Begin Again to the must-watch list 🙂

    The Martian – great movie, book way funnier!
