Monday Movie Review

Katie and I cashed in more Coke rewards points this week and headed to Blockbuster. We picked out "Bella" and "August Rush".

Bella















PLOT:
Sooner or later every one of us will face an irreversible moment that will change our lives forever. If it hasn't happened to you yet...it will. BELLA is a true love story about how one day in New York City changed three people forever.

Angel's Five Star Review:

ONE Star *~ Although this movie received many awards and great reviews, it just never picked up for me. It had a good message, but could have been delivered much better in my opinion.

Katie's Opinion:

Katie gives this movie a 2 on a scale of one to ten. It wasn't to her liking.






August Rush
















PLOT:
A drama with fairy tale elements, where an orphaned musical prodigy uses his gift as a clue to finding his birth parents.

Angel's Five Star Review:
Four and a half Stars ****1/2
This was another great family movie that both Katie and I enjoyed.

Katie's Opinion:
Katie gives this movie a 7. She says: "It was a good movie, but she didn't like the ending so much."

I want to thank those of you who left some movie recommendations last week. I will definitely be renting some of those selections! Any more?

Good Morning Angel! Sorry to hear you didn't like Bella that much. It was a bit of a slow movie, but I think that's what made it so quaint. I really liked it...particularily the message.

We watched the Final Inquiry last night. It was hard to follow at first, but when it got into the story, was pretty good. Although, I could have done without some of the fight scenes. Too much blood IMO.

Would you believe my 2 younger kiddos are watching Miracle on 34th Street this morning? Christmas in June! ;)

Have a great day Angel! ~ Patti

I loved August Rush.. I love the soundtrack! I've never heard of Bella, I'll go look for it..

Have you seen Facing the Giants?
Is a low budget Christian movie but Fabulous! I think its a year or two old but worth it.
