Ten Reviews in Ten Words or Less

In which we dispense with anything resembling a proper review and get straight to the point.

Buried (Rodrigo Cortés, 2010)
Nice to see a film thinking inside the box.

The Time Traveler's Wife (Robert Schwentke, 2009)
Read the book instead.

Exam (Stuart Hazeldine, 2009) 
Fail. Must try better.

Superbad (Greg Mottola, 2007)
Sporadically amusing. Overall, I'm McLikin' it.

30 Days of Night (David Slade, 2007)
113 Minutes of Shite. Melissa George is lovely, though.

Up in the Air (Jason Reitman, 2009)
Slick, well-played, but emotionally a big ‘dead space’ zone

The Hangover (Todd Phillips, 2009)
Funnier than a real hangover. Less funny than getting drunk.  

Beowulf (Robert Zemeckis, 2007)
Sometimes impressive, sometimes silly. Bit like ye olde poemes, really.

Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Steven Spielberg, 2008)
Bad

Saw II (Darren Lynn Bousman, 2005)
Really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really bad


That's it. Short and sweet. Over and out. Good night.
