A Twitter Inspired Review Round Up

As well as teaching us procrastination and the art of wasting time, Twitter also helps us understand that short is indeed sweet sometimes. Which helps when you watch more films than you can actually review properly. Hence, in lieu of real analysis there follows a quick round up of reviews in 140 characters or less.

Duel (Steven Spielberg, 1971)
Jaws & Steven: The Early Years

Sudden Impact (Clint Eastwood, 1983)
aka 'I Spit on Your Flatulent Bulldog'. Did not even come close to making my day.

Goosebumps (Rob Letterman, 2016)
Not scary enough to raise any actual goosebumps, but clever enough to raise a few laughs instead.

Halloween II (Rick Rosenthal, 1981)
Patchy sequel set in the quietest hospital ever. Most A&E units would be glad to end a night with the modest body count that Michael manages

Oblivion (Joseph Kosinski, 2013) 
Remember that terrific film Moon? Now, imagine if it starred Tom Cruise and made no sense and was a bit shit. Well, then you'd have Oblivion

The Two Faces of January (Hossein Amini, 2014)
Strangers on a Greek Bus meets The Talented Mr Isaac

Sunshine on Leith (Dexter Fletcher, 2013)
Amiable musical-drama based on Proclaimers songs. I wouldn't be their biggest fan but I would.....WALK 500 MILES AND I WOULD WALK 500 MORE!! 

*links arms with strangers and dances off out the door*

Think that's special? I once reviewed 10 films in 10 words or less. Yeah, that's how I roll in my house, baby.
