Binging on Movies

We don’t go to the movie theater very often but we do have quite a large DVD collection at home.  I’m usually way behind on watching movies because I just don’t take the time.

But….last weekend I had to spend most of my time in a darkish room after I had the Blue Light treatment on my face.  Well, it made sense to spend that time watching movies!!!

I thought it would be fun to give  a brief review (without giving anything away if you haven’t seen the movie!!) and my personal rating for each movie.

This movie was cute but kind-of corny.  Pretty much everything that could go wrong on the night out did.  Funny that Trace Adkins (country singer) was in it – I didn’t know he was acting now.  Probably not a movie I would watch again but I didn’t hate it.

This movie was one of those that I only half paid attention to.  It sort of bounced around at the beginning and then it was just basically a movie about one person loving the other more.

I liked this move.  It wasn’t exactly what I expected and I like that in a movie!!!  This movie is set back in a more laid back time – very different from the fast paced life we have today.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Dream Girls.  It was made before Jennifer Hudson lost so much weight – weird to see her in the movie compared to how she looks now.  The music was good.  And, this was another movie from a completely different time.  I spent most of this movie working on stuff but I don’t feel like I really missed anything.

I really enjoyed this movie even though it had some sad points in it.  The whole premise of the movie was good.  I wish that my favorite couple hadn’t wasted so much time but…..

This was just a silly comedy.  It had some funny parts and some completely ridiculous parts.  Chris watched all of this one with me and I think he enjoyed the humor.  Not sure I would ever watch this one again.

I loved this movie!!!  There were times that it made me cry and other times that it made me laugh.  It fit into my criteria for a feel-good movie!!!

I was really looking forward to this movie – I thought it would be super funny.  There were parts that were very funny and other parts that didn’t really make sense.  It was good for a bit of entertainment!!!

Chris and I watched this movie together.  He loved it and I thought it was a complete waste of time!!!  The last 30 minutes or so I just wanted the movie to be over and done.  Chris watched it 2 more times over the next 2 days (once with Jordan and once with both boys).  All 3 of the boys loved it – crazy!!

Really I don’t even know if I would give it 1 star!!!

This movie I loved!!!  I’m always in for a sports themed movie and I really enjoyed the way this one played out.  I actually liked it better than Moneyball!!!

This was a super cute movie.  There were parts of it that were completely predictable but it was easy to follow.  I enjoyed it and might even watch it again at some point.

Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 4.37.23 PMThis was the first movie that I watched during my 45 mile run on Wednesday.  It started out slowly but I stuck with it because I really do love movies based on true life especially sports themed ones.  By the end of the movie I was glad I had watched it!  Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 4.21.02 PM

I really do like watching movies –  not sure why I tend to go ages without watching them and then binge watch!!!

What is one of your favorite movies?

Happy Monday!
