August Movies & $ for Hurricane Harvey

Every month, since November 2009,  I’ve written a 5 word review of the movies I’ve watched and asked my online friends to add their 5 words to mine.  I’ve tied it to money for charity by letting the top contributor choose the charity every $100 (see charities here).  This month I’m doing something a little different.

I am donating money to the Houston Food Bank in the wake of the Hurricane Harvey devastation and I’ll add $1 to my donation every time you add your 5 words (or less) to mine.  It’s that easy. You can start on this post but if you haven’t seen any of these or want to contribute more money you can browse through the hundreds of movies I’ve watched and add your words to past movies.  Or if you want to browse each post to find movies you’ve seen you can do that here.

You don’t need to be a blogger to participate, just leave your movie “review” in a comment.  If you have any questions you can email me at

We’re up to $109!  Open til the end of next week.

    I saw Looney Tunes when it first came out but it’s been too long for me to remember much but I don’t remember it being all that memorable! Ha!

    So devastating what’s happening in Texas. The food bank is where I’ve sent money too. Thanks for doing this!

    I’m trying to think of any movies I saw this past month. Trolls (for the umpteenth time), Moana (for the fifth time), and Toy Story 3 for the first time. I miss seeing adult movies. LOL

    Let’s see:

    Trolls – Catchy tunes, overdose of happiness.

    Moana – Courageous heroine restores the heart.

    (Or my husband’s version: Dumb chicken steals the show.)

    Toy Story 3 – Tearjerker coming of age story.
