The Five Word Review!
My disdain for 'Modern Hollywood' isn't really a big secret. Ask anyone who has ever brought up the subjects of movies to me and they can tell you how I feel.
To be honest, I think Hollywood is a vast wasteland of empty ideas and unending retreads. The worst part being, the assembly line, cookie cutter, manner in which these things are made and the astronomical amounts of money, some the GDP of a small nation, spent to ensure we put our rears in the seats.
That said, I still continue to frequent the movie house.
Sometimes it's because a friend or loved one is interested in seeing something. Other times, it's because something actually grabs my attention and I want to go see if there's any substance there or just a small nation's GDP being put to devious use.
In the past nine or so months, I've been averaging about a movie a month. Again, some weren't my choice, but others were. Now, usually, I'll put a little 'review' of the most recent movie I've seen up on my other blog, but then got to thinking.....why do a whole post about one movie when just a few words will do?
With that in mind, I give you some Five Word Reviews.
So, how many of these have you seen? Would your thoughts echo mine....even in this diminished format?
Hope you all have a great week!
