68 Tiny Twitter Film Reviews (1-18-16 to 12-6-16)

This is my seventh batch of short movie reviews that I have posted on Twitter. There are 68 in this bunch. I was going to wait one whole calendar year, but I got bored tonight so I downloaded my full Twitter Archive and separated these out to kill some time. These reviews span the period from January 18, 2016 to December 6, 2016, and are listed in chronological order (the order in which they were originally posted).

I have been tweeting these sort of short 140 character Movie Reviews since I first joined Twitter. I have alternated between taking great pride in boiling down a complex opinion about something to a short, but thoughtful tweet and feeling lamely self-important about it.

Anyway, may I present to you… 68 Tiny Twitter Film Reviews:

57 Twitter Size Film Reviews (6-14-14 to 1-26-15)

This is my fifth set of twitter movie reviews. Over the holiday break I got into a serious loop of watching barely remembered movies from the ’70s, so there are a bunch of those in this batch. These 57 reviews span the period from June 13 2014 to January 26 2015, and are listed in chronological order (the order in which they were originally posted).

10 Twitterable Short Stories in 140 Characters or Less – Part 5

I have an uneasy relationship with Twitter. In effect, no one actually pays attention to me there. In response I started posting random bits of dialogue and descriptive text. I am now on my fifth installment of 10 snippets. The previous four can be found here, here, here, and here.

14 Twitter Movie Reviews (4-10-14 to 6-13-14)

This fourth set of twitter movie reviews is a bit shorter than the previous three (which can be found here, here and here). I am not seeing as many movies currently as I have in the past (have been watching a ton of TV though… so there’s that…). These 14 reviews span the period from April 10, 2014 to June 13 2014 and are listed in chronological order (the order in which they were originally posted).

10 Character Snippets in 140 Characters or Less – Part 4

Since no one actually pays attention to me on Twitter, I started posting Random Snippets of Dialogue from stories that I will never write. That morphed a bit over that initial 10 posts to something slightly more interesting to me – Twitter-sized character studies. In effect, short stories of 140 characters or less. This is the fourth bunch of 10 that I have posted so far.

#DreamDoubleFeature – 10 Twitter Suggestions

For the longest time I have wanted to program a monthly film series. I got kinda close with Channel 801, the short film showcase I did with Jamie Maxfield and Andrew Jensen at Brewvies in SLC, Utah, until the venue became too difficult to work with.

What I think would be very cool to do, is a monthly Dream Double Feature – program two movies back to back that are related in theme, or plot, or location, etc. Here are my first 10 suggestions for something like that, which were originally posted on my Twitter feed. Continue reading

My Twitter Reviews: Part 3 (from 9-1-13 to 4-10-14)

I have been tweeting short 140 character Movie Reviews since I got on Twitter. I have alternated between taking great pride in boiling down a complex opinion about something to a short, but thoughtful tweet and feeling lamely self-important about it.

This third set of reviews (the first set can be found here and the second set can be found here) span the period from September 1, 2013 to April 10, 2014. There are 52 of them and they are all in chronological order (rather, the order in which I tweeted them).

And now, may I present to you… A Bunch Of Twitter Movie Reviews – Part 3: Continue reading

Muppets Most Wanted – A Facebook Thread (inspired by my movie review)

After I posted my review of Muppets Most Wanted (as a series of Bullet Points) here, I shared it on FB and it created some great conversation on how the new generation of Muppet Movies compare to our childhood love of the Muppets. Since we are all old, that basically dates back to the original movies and TV series, as well as their premier on Sesame Street.

I thought it would be fun to just post the thread here for posterity’s sake. Continue reading
