  • One Sentence Movie Reviews

    Brevity is golden. Title and one line that sums up why we should or shouldn't care about the movie. It can be a standard of a more recent release. Your call.


    To get it going.


    The Avengers: it had the splash of summer action hits, but lacked the gravitas of the first Iron man, making it an entertaining weak sister on the order of Iron Man II.

                      Wow! I saw Avengers three times at the theater, seeing it is the best comic book movie I've ever seen. Ironman was great, for sure. But I thought Avengers was even better.

                      Have you seen Taken 2, yet? Decent movie, but definitely a "weak sister" of the first (one of my favorite movies).

                          I thought Iron Man one had a more emotionally compelling core and gravitas. I'd put it on the level of Captain America. The first half or so of the Avengers is a roller coaster of special effects, to me. They try to capture the "kill someone we like and establish the weight of motivation" gambit with the shield agent and it succeeds to some extent, though it's late in coming.

                          A good enough action film, but I thought it had little heart to it. Of the Marvel movies...I'd say IM2, Captain and the last X-Men were all a cut above this one as whole experience. Haven't seen the last Batman yet.

                          Taken 2? The trailer made me cringe. And I liked the first one.

                          I'm waiting on Ender's Game, the next Bond and, of course, The Hobbit.

                              Don't overlook Ender's Game. Read the books if you haven't...but Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley in the two important adult roles?
