March’s Movies

As I put together this post, I saw that they are currently filming Bad Santa 2 with much of the same cast, minus Bernie Mac and John Ritter, two funny men lost too young.

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 $31.

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.

    • Yes! to the Bad Santa thoughts! I didn’t want to like it and I did. Jason said he was happy that I could still surprise him after 20 years – he thought I’d hate it 🙂
      I didn’t see Cloverfield so had no clue. Still liked it though 🙂

      • I’m a Christmas fanatic so I wasn’t sure if I wanted a “Christmas” movie to be like that, but oddly, it still had a good (Christmas-y) message. I’m not easily offended anyway. lol

        Yeah, 10 Cloverfied was really good. It was really a lot better that the first one, but since I had seen it, I already knew that “something” was going on outside of the bunker.

      • I might go back and watch Cloverfield at some point!

      • It wasn’t completely horrible, but it was so short, it just kind of felt like a let down. Let me know what you think when you watch it. 🙂

  2. I haven’t seen any of those but I’m excited because I’m going to see Hello My Name is Doris tomorrow.

  3. I haven’t seen any of these. I don’t think I would care for Bad Santa, I’m afraid. It feels like so long since I last saw a movie. Hmm.

    The Pirate Fairy – Fairies versus pirates; surprisingly good.

    That’s a bad short review but the best I can come up with right now. LOL
