ClaratsiThis time up, our movie recommendation comes from Kevin Clare over at Claratsi’s Movie Review, who’s suggested 2011′s “We Need to Talk About Kevin”.
 
“We Need to Talk About Kevin” was making the rounds when I first began blogging, but being a limited release film, I never got to it. Still, I’ve heard good thing and have been curious to see it. I was glad Kevin recommended it!

TThis time up, our movie recommendation comes from Terrence Faulkner over at the Focused Filmographer, who’s suggested I give Steven Spielberg’s “Hook” another chance.
 
I saw “Hook” when it was first released and didn’t care too much for it. I’ve never revisited it. T has a strong affinity for it, though, and we’ve sparred a couple of times about it. So now I’m going to go back and give it a second look!

Jan has chosen this for our starting point, so let’s see how it turns out! Click through to see our thoughts on this film!
