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".


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 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

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.

Hmmmm, interesting. I love that you are doing this cause so often I do not read about the movies. I just get what I know!
