One Sentence Movie Reviews - February 2008

More one-sentence movie reviews for you to eat with your eyes....

Margot at the Wedding
If you know the last name Baumbach and have seen the movie THE SQUID AND THE WHALE, you'll like this movie.

Gone Baby Gone
It's like MYSTIC RIVER with a missing girl instead of a dead daughter.

The Seventh Seal
Death plays chess with Father Merrin in this black and white snoozer.

Night at the Museum
Ben Stiller recreates JUMANJI at the New York Museum of Natural History in this okay kid's flick.

A mindfuck of a time-travel movie made for only $7,000.

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
It's like that Fiona Apple's CD with the long title: pretty to look at, but a bit on the long and boring side.

The Brave One
It's DEATH WISH if Charles Bronson had tits and a vagina.

The King of Kong
Two geeks play Donkey Kong for the geek championship of the world in this fun,interesting documentary.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
Okay, I'm officially sick of the pirate shit.

No End in Sight
If this great documentary were a book, it would be called Iraq War for Dummies.

Joshua is an asshole and you'll want to strangle him by the end of this movie.

The Ten
WET, HOT AMERICAN SUMMER mixed with RENO 911 and The Ten Commandments equals weird fun.

King of California
Michael Douglas shows his acting chops, instead of his naked ass, while he and Evan Rachel Wood search for treasure beneath Costco.

Away from Her
The Alzheimer's feel-good movie of the year...I think.

If you liked KIDS and GUMMO, you'll like this movie about teenage angst...and stupidity.

There you have it. What do you think?

I thought The Ten sucked. And I completely disagree with you on Jesse James and The Seventh Seal, which are two great films. The King of Kong was so-so.
