A Three-Sentence Movie Review

Trying a new thing in where I offer short movie reviews--all of three sentences in length. Mostly because reading reviews can get tedious. Sometimes it's just about getting to the point!


Gravity

I was introduced to a new fear of floating in space, but I'd still visit just for that killer view of the Earth. Great performance from Sandra, as always; however, the script was just a little dry in certain spots. The movie made me think about vulnerability, but maybe doesn't live up to all the hype.







Prisoners

I honestly felt depressed after the film was finished. It was so tense and upsetting that it ranks up there with Schindler's List. However, Jake Gyllenhaal's performance was so on point you might want to see it anyway.








Elysium

Predictable.  But, oh, what nerdy fun to watch!!!! The graphics really impressed me and Maaaaaaatt Daaaaaaaamon never does too wrong in my book.






















It's a Disaster

Really morbid and made me google 'effects of VX gas.' The characters were somewhat believable, although sometimes I really question the acting ability of Julia Stiles (depends on the movie). This is what you get for a Netflix instant movie.

  1. The reviews were pretty interesting and some of the movies I might actually want to see. However I feel like you phoned this post in a bit. I'll blame it all on the government shutdown.

  3. I like these. Where's the 3-sentence review of HF? You know you have to do one. I have no interest in seeing Gravity, but it's got Clooney, so it has to be pretty good at least. Which means I'll probably see it, even if Sandra Bullock's hair doesn't float in zero gravity.

    1. do you want me to bring up HF for the 3,853,789 time on this blog?!? Yeah, ok :) Good point about Sandra's hair. Hmmm...didn't think of that!

    2. Am I sensing a little blasphemy?

    3. Am I seeing a little cultish behavior?

  4. I ended up seeing Gravity on Sunday night and loved that immersive feeling that the 3D brought. I was reading up on the creative liberties they had to take, but I was still on the edge of my seat the entire time and rooting for my namesake to make it. If it had been like Open Water in space, I would've asked for my money back! (Which worked for the former movie.)
