  1. Never seen Julie & Julia, though everyone I know loved it. But everyone I know also loved The Hangover, so I don’t trust their opinions all that much. ;)

  2. Benjamin Button was pretty bad… but I don’t think I would have given it a 1, it wasn’t THAT bad. :)

    I would give Julie & Julia a 2.5… because the half of the movie about Julia Child was excellent and the other half sucked.

  3. I have seen Forrest Gump. You can’t live in the south and not watch Forrest Gump at least five times. The Confederates would kick you out! ;)

    I love both movies, actually. You are right that Benjamin Button is a very long movie, but I still loved it. I guess it was just the way the story was told. I thought it was well done. And I love movies that don’t wrap everything up in a nice little bow. Life is good sometimes, and sometimes it just plain sucks.

  4. Wow, I also like both Forest Gump and Benjamin Button. I liked that it was something different.

    Julie and Julia was terrible. I probably would have given it a 2. And you’re right, it would have been better without the blogger aspect.
