Haiku Review: 4 April 2010

I’m way behind on my movie recaps, so I’ll do half today and half tomorrow.  Off we go!

The Awful Truth (3 stars): a husband and wife / suspect worst of each other / bring on the hijinks

How to Marry a Millionaire (3 stars): some pretty ladies / try to land themselves rich men / but find love instead

Easy Virtue (5 stars): i love this movie / i’ve said so a few times now / but it’s still quite true

Shutter Island (5 stars): Scorsese directs / another cinematic / thriller tour de force

The Wolfman (2 stars): i wish i had watched / an american werewolf / in london instead

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog (5 stars): if the writer’s strike / brings entertainment like this / let’s strike more often

The Illusionist (4 stars): underrated film / about illusion and love / and the force of each

Girl With a Pearl Earring (4 stars): a study of art / and the way artists connect / in their unique way

Coco Avant Chanel (3 stars): stubborn as a mule / that was one of Chanel’s traits / and it served her well

Crazy Heart (4 stars): a country singer / trades his dignity for booze / but learns his lesson

Cop Out (2 stars): I wanted to laugh / they should have hired Abed / to write it instead

Pulp Fiction (3 stars): innovative, sure / but i wanted more of uma / and a bit less bruce

Brief Interviews with Hideous Men (3 stars): John Krasinski gives / an interesting showcase / of why most men suck

Don’t Bother to Knock (3 stars): Marilyn Monroe / gives an edgy performance / in unsettling role

Alice in Wonderland (4 stars): i saw some heart here / where a lot of folks did not / in Alice’s arc

    These haikus are AWESOME. And I do not use that word unless it’s warranted. Great idea and a great way to do a mass recap!
