3-Word Movie Reviews

I've watched a few movies recently, and I've decided they can all be reviewed in three words.  Probably less, but let's go with three words for this exercise. 

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
Marlon Wayans?  Really?

The Boondock Saints
Still bored me.

Drag Me to Hell
Befriend a gypsy.

The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009)
Watch the original.

Buttoned down cool!

It's try it.


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. One of my laziest posts ever.  You are welcome.

Have you been to the Four Word Film Review web site? It's great! I think it's
Well, it would have been great but they turned down my Phantom Menace review: "Lucas must be stopped!"

Barlinnie said...

Pelham 1 2 3.... I remember it well.

Water Logged Canine said...

Best post ever.

Maybe rework them as Haikus?

Verdant Earl said...

badger - Four words? Those mother-fuckers need four words? Ha! I laugh at the fourth word! ;)

Jimmy - The original was all class.

Doggie - You complete me.

Wabbit - That would have been way too much work at 2AM or whenever it was that I posted this.

Three word review of Bug Eyed Earl Blog:

Bacon beer fun.


Faiqa said...

That was awesome. I'm stealing this for a post next week. Don't worry, I'll link back. ;)

Dr Zibbs said...

Drag Me To Hell was pretty entertaining.

Verdant Earl said...

Holly - How about "Bacon bacon...BACON!!!"

Faiqa - Steal away. I certainly wasn't original here.

Zibbs - Yeah, but I wanted more. Felt too much like Thinner.

I was disappointed with Coraline for some reason. I think Tim Burton's messing with Willie Wonka has ruined him for me.

Verdant Earl said...

Uncool - Want me to blow your mind? Tim Burton didn't have anything to do with Coraline. Not even a producer credit. Henry Selick directed both it and The Nightmare Before Christmas and Burton wrote and produced that one, but not Coraline. Harumph.

Raine said...

Grand idea, I watch a whole lotta movies... I think I could handle three per!

Bruce Johnson said...

Hmmm, possibly the best blog you have ever written......

I still want to see Coraline, because it appears just to surreal and freaky, (would have loved to see in in Imax 3D but never go the chance).

I sort of want to scarf Penhelm 123off the internet eventually, just to watch John Travolta....he usually does a good crazy terrorist.

Just watched The Taking of Pelham 123 and I agree, I enjoyed the original a lot more.
