July’s Movies

I could watch a great romantic film again and again (and have!) but bad ones are hard to stomach (I’m looking at you Nicholas Sparks). 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 $35.

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. I’ve never heard of Living on One Dollar but it looks like something I’d like.

  5. […] I usually list the movie I hated the most, but this year there were 2 movies I hated and they were BOTH Nicholas Sparks movies.  Message in a Bottle and the worst of the worst, The Best of Me. […]
