Would yoube kind enough to correct my following sentences:

You passed your cold to me. Correct.

I contracted my cold from you. More commonly: "I caught my cold from you".

His new movies are a cross between his older ones and the new lovey-dovey movies.
I'm not sure about this. You have used "new" twice. How can his new films be a cross between his old films and his new films?! Or are they a cross between his older films and a general trend of romantic films?

Digital cameras don't do justice to [STRIKE]capture[/STRIKE] the true grandeur of this splendid cascade.
See above. You don't need "capture". You can simply say that something doesn't do justice to something else.

Thanks a million times!

See above.
