Every year at this time my mailbox (and Fedex delivery) fills up with DVDs of the year’s movies “For My Consideration,” e. g. my Academy Award vote. Therefore, I usually save my movie-going for Nov-Dec since I can see the films in the comfort of my own home – this time around on a spiffy new projection system. That hasn’t helped the movies, needless to say. Also, almost none of them are worthy of lengthy comment. (Yes, I admit I would have made a lousy movie reviewer because I have seen way too many films and “the movie pleasure joints” have long ago begun to wind or grind down. So factor that in. I don’t like a lot of movies and I rarely watch them through if I’m not entertained or interested.)
So this year I am going to keep it short (unless I don’t) with the ultimate one-word DVD movie reviews: WATCHED/EJECTED. It comes down to that end anyway. I’ll provide a link to Rotten Tomatoes so you can see how others felt.
By the way, there’s nothing special about anybody’s movie review. It’s just an opinion.
Spiderman 3 – WATCHED
Across the Universe – EJECTED
The Namesake – WATCHED, but considered ejecting. (Oops, I already broke my rule.)
