Default Tom's very short movie reviews

As many of you don't know, i'm a projectionist. I thus see films a bit before they come out in the UK, and will now endeavour to review every film i see at the cinema, in 2-3 words. Feel free to comment with your own (short) opinions.

We'll start with:

Notorious - shit. motherfucker.

Pink Panther 2 tonight...

This is quite possibly the greatest idea you ever had mate.

Besides accepting a job that pays you to watch movies...


It really doesn't surprise me that a film about a fat rapping wanker is shit though.

My little bro did this as a job for a bit, sounded great until he realised that he ended up watching most films 10 times over! Looking forward to the reviews Tor, can keep an eye out for ones to avoid then.

No surprised there for either of them.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

what a waste of a great cast.

Steve Martin was once a fantastic comedian and actor. But look at the rest, andy garcia, alfred molina, jean reno, emily mortimer... jesus. what a piece of shit.
