February’s Movies

These past few weeks have been a blur.  Should have posted this earlier.  I was happy to see Spotlight win Best Picture at the Oscars.  I thought it was deserved.

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 $29.

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.

Investigative reporters expose Catholic Church.

Absolutely terrific movie that definitely deserved the Oscar!  (Lloyd) – not 5 words? Sue me.

Amazingly acted, written, and directed.   (Heather)

Munich 1 Poster.jpgMunich, 2005 (Eric Bana, Daniel Craig, Geoffrey Rush, Ciaran Hinds, Mathieu Kassovitz)        Grade B

Truish story about justifying murder.

Remember it having emotional impact.  (Michelle)

The ending was soooo bad.

Another reason why…no Sparks.  (Michelle)

A waste of two hours….   (Heather)

      Well, I’d skip that last one. The only Sparks movie I’ve seen is The Notebook and I wanted to see if his other movies were similar. I don’t think Sparks is for me.

      Too funny Lloyd! I just this minute updated the $ and saw I only gave it a B+ (I always leave the grade on the post right away) and thought, why didn’t I give that an A? Off to fix it. You are completely right 🙂

    I loved Munich. What I got out of that film was that it doesn’t make a difference when you take out a terrorist or person bent on doing harm. There is always another one, more often worse, that will pop up in his or her place. There are consequences to every action, even when done under the name of justice.
