Haiku Review: 9 May 2010

If you haven’t checked out The List of Movies That Made Going to the Movies Suck over at Mike’s blog, there are some really interesting essays going up daily all month long.  You can find my essay on IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT, which kicked off The List, here.  Now, onto the reviews.

The Back-Up Plan (2 stars): if you are aching /to see Alex O’Loughlin / watch Moonlight instead

Stuntmen (3 stars): an amusing look / at the stuntman industry / mockumentary style

Orange County (3½ stars): the transition from / high school to college is hard / but also funny

The Princess Bride (5 stars): truly a classic / epic comedic romance / with awesome swordfights

Singles (3½ stars): from Cameron Crowe / a film about single life / and finding the one

Shades of Ray (3½ stars): a sweet indie film / an identity crisis / both funny and real

Iron Man (3½ stars): excellent relaunch / to a franchise and career / more RDJ please

Iron Man 2 (3½ stars): the sequel lives up / to my expectations and / perhaps exceeds them

And last but not least, don’t forget to watch Chuck, (catch up online!) because I don’t want it to get cancelled, because then I’ll have nothing to live for on Mondays (8/7 Central on NBC, folks!).

  2. “Singles” also has the best movie soundtrack excepting “Pulp Fiction” and “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”

    • All three/four of those directors know how to use music to enhance their storytelling. Scorcese & Woody Allen also do a fantastic job of using music almost as a standalone character in their films.
