July & August Movies and Money for Charity

I forgot to do this last month so this is two months of movie watching. I feel like I need to do a monthly post on what we’re binge watching too since we do as much of that as anything. What’s the last show you binged?

You know the drill, 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. Click here to see past movie posts.

What do I need to see in September?

We’re at $81 right now.  Your charity could be next

    Interesting selections of movies that you watched. I really liked Midnight Run, Hugo and Gigi , all for different reasons. Midnight Run is a very funny take on a bounty hunter/road picture. Hugo is an excellent movie about movie making with a coming of age worked in. Gigi is an MGM musical directed with a lot of style by Vincent Minelli. Minelli was a painter and many of the scenes in the movie look like paintings that come to life.
    Thanks for sharing..

    I saw Midnight Special but I honestly can’t remember much of it or how I felt about it…I don’t know what that says about my brain and how old I’m getting…
