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).

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… 14 Twitter-sized Movie Reviews: Continue reading

Noah – Movie Review (as a comment thread on Facebook)

I have seen Noah twice now and think it is a heady, beautiful film that finally gives the Noah story some substance beyond the kind of Sunday School/Bedtime children’s tale it has become in the last 100 years or so. I also realize it has turned out to be a fairly polarizing film for a variety of reasons. So, instead of writing a review of it, or even doing it as bullet points, I thought I would just post the comment thread from my FB page. (Nicole wins best comment.)

It all kicks off with my Twitter Review (which I cross-posted to FB). Continue reading

Muppets Most Wanted – Movie Review (as a series of bullet points)

The Muppets factor into my earliest happy memories. I have a huge soft spot for them that overrides most reason. They just released a new movie. After how easy and fun my Bullet Point Review of Divergent was, I figured I would do it again, but this time about Muppets Most Wanted. Plus, I love Tina Fey.

So. Here you go. Continue reading

Divergent – Movie Review (as a series of bullet points)

I saw Divergent the other day. I have a lot-ish to say about it, but don’t actually want to write a real review. That just seems like more work than the movie deserves. So, I figured I would just post my notes that I made of my thoughts as a series of bullet points rather than writing them out as full sentences and supporting thoughts.

So. Here you go.

Cabin In The Woods – Movie Review

(Originally posted on Republibot.com on 4-19-12 – and then immediately posted here, too, for some reason…) 

I have an approach to reviewing films that I rarely share called Perfect Film/Perfect Movie. Basically it posits that a Perfect Film is one that I can’t fault any of the choices made in the execution of the film – story, cast, plot, direction, etc. A Perfect Movie is one that I can tune into at any time and something cool or interesting is going on, regardless of the craft involved. Obviously Perfect Films are a much smaller group than Perfect Movies, but still overall, they are elite clubs with few members.
