Six-Word Movie Reviews

Have you heard that thing about the six-word biography? I can't think of any off the top of my head, but it's all the rage at the moment...summing up something (or someone) in six words. Well, that's the goal for this round of movie reviews: a six word review, and then a one word summary.

Enchanted
family-friendly, catchy music, mocks cliches
buyable

Martian Child
Adopting is hard, love conquers all
heartfelt
(poor reviews, but it hit home--reminded me more than a little of my early days with Wolf...)

Juno
pregnant teens are crude, funny, wise
genuine
(pregnancy from a naive teen's perspective...crude in places, but often funny, and heartwarming)

Elizabeth
deserved every academy award it got
extravagant

Sweeny Todd
Glad I watched, but won't repeat
macabre
(yes, it's a musical...a Stephen Sondheim musical. This ain't no Rogers & Hammerstein, ok?!)


Ahhh, I almost made it. I just HAD to add comments to a couple of them. Well hey, that was fun, now we know I shouldn't try that again!
We're going to see Prince Caspian this summer....ooo I can't wait!

Cleverly done, I enjoyed your itty bitty reviews!

DH and I just watched Juno last night, I had heard so much about it being a "great" movie, I think I had my expectations pretty high. I agree that it was genuine. But personally, I can't say whether I actually liked or disliked the movie. For me, it sort of just... was. Odd, huh?

I love it. I may try it.
I saw some movies there that are on my list of 'want to see's'

Thanks for the reviews. I was looking at Martian Child the other night at the movies store but we haven't rented it yet.

Hehe, some of those are spot-on! And funny.

You know I have too many blogs in my blogroll when I totally forget there's another blogger from Alaska! So now I'm weeding some out. I look forward to keeping in better touch!
Thanks for the reviews! I'm looking foward to Juno!
