I haven’t been writing these down even though I seem to average 2 a month, which is entirely possible because I don’t have kids or the wherewithal to learn CSS. Oh, and I don’t pick favorites just because.

Twilight. You must add Twilight. It’s the tween movie of the year. Book 2 will be on the big screen November of ’09. Books 3 & 4 have already been consumed in our home. I know how you’re interested in tween girlie flicks!
Duly noted Amy. Our friend “The Brown” has been sucked into the Twilight vortex and also gives high praise to the books. So many tween things to keep up on.
This is classic! But did you like or hate Juno? And Wall-E and There Will Be Blood? Your reviews are so poetic I couldn’t figure out where you stood on some of ’em!
Sometimes I’m intentionally vague Beth, but to clear things up on these:
LOVED Juno. It’s like The Breakfast Club for a whole new generation.
Also loved WALL-E, but it did give me pause about consumption in my personal life.
I can’t say I loved THERE WILL BE BLOOD. It was VERY well done. Excellent in every regard, but I simply didn’t like the main character, and I didn’t know what I was supposed to feel after the investment.
haha “The Dark Knight” – the opposite of everything that is spider man movies 🙂 Slum dog millionaire was a very decent movie though.
