Bite-sized reviews: Summer Blockbusters

3 Jul

Movie reviewers these days seem to be getting a tad grandiloquent. Plus, there are millions of them. I read reviews so that I don’t waste money on a crap movie at the cinema, when I could just wait and watch it on DVD or OnDemand. Still, it shouldn’t take me longer to read and decipher a movie review than it takes me to watch the film it is critiquing. Also, the longer the movie review, the more likely it is to be full of spoilers. So, this is why we will no longer be adding to the trend with long-assed, self-indulgent movie reviews. From now on it’s bite-sized, zero-spoiler, bare-bones reviews.

Here are our thoughts on Thor, Green Lantern, Pirates of the Caribbean, Super 8, Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon, X-Men: First Class.

Nibby: You must see Thor. You must.

Ayn Rant: Go see Super 8. Rent Green Lantern. Transformers [is] worth it on IMax.

swampmusic: Jack [Sparrow] in 3D is just….so much more fun than Jack in 2D.

Nibby: Unfortunately, I saw Green Lantern at full 3D price. It’s not worth it. It’s a rental.

swampmusic: More than willing to watch Thor, Pirates of the Caribbean, and/or X-Men: First Class again.

Ayn Rant: Super 8 is like Goonies or E.T., that kind of magical, kid-like feel. It’s not like a crazy scary alien pic or anything, but it’s just so well done and worth it. :o) And, Green Lantern DID have good special effects — that was good enough for matinee!

Nibby: Oh, so now it’s okay for a matinee, not rental.

See? How much more do you need to know than that?
