Ten-word movie reviews #8


Super 8 – Best kind of old-school Spielberg; amazing kid actors; wonderful story.


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part Two – Perfect ending, but not a substitute for reading the books.


Limitless – Intriguing premise, keeps you completely hooked, Bradley Cooper is gorgeous.


New in Town – A pleasant but mostly bland romantic comedy starring Renee Zellwegger.

      Amy – I’m not a huge Renee Zellwegger fan, so this isn’t really an unbiased opinion. :)

    I know a lot of people who have enjoyed Super 8, but I’m not sure it’s for me. I think I’ll wait to rent it.

      Kathy – It’s not your typical alien movie – more heavy on plot and character, which I like.

      Carol – why thank you! :) Seeing your comment formatted like that made me think maybe next time I should do my micro-reviews in haiku form!

    I was not a fan of New In Town – I didn’t even finish watching it. I usually love rom coms, but Rene’s character just seemed too unnecessarily mean. I knew she’d come around in the end, but I didn’t care enough to see it through.

    I agree with your summary of HP7 Pt2. It was a great ending to the movie series, but didn’t come close to the awesomeness of the final book.

      Alita – she’s not my favorite actress anyway, so I think I was pre-programmed to not like it. :)

    I really want to see the first three and agree with you about New in Town. It was enjoyable though forgettable.
