Six words for blogging. Reviews: four.
I really like Six Word Saturdays at Show my Face.com. It is a challenge to condense your week into six words. I guess that's why I enjoyed The four world film review (FWFR) so much.
It is strikingly similar to Six Word Saturdays but it is relegated to film reviews. Your reviews can be less than 4 words but not more than 5. The idea is you submit these film reviews and then they are either accepted or rejected by the editorial staff at fwfr. Once accepted then your reviews can be voted on by other members if they enjoyed them. From 2005 to 2008 I had 657 reviews approved which is good for 105th all time of fwfr reviewers.
My first review was of the movie Return to Me. (Love grows where transplanted).
I have reviewed films from 3 different centuries: Edison's Kinetoscopic record of a sneeze from 1894 (Lights. Camera. Ahchoo), 1986's Peggy Sue Got Married (Turner ignores time warner), and Crash from 2004 (Six degrees of segregation).
Other reviews I am quite fond of are
Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace: First shall be fourth.
Cars - Herbie Fully downloaded.
Legend of Bagger Vance: Golf War Syndrome.
Wizard of Oz: Garland's dream role.
Braveheart: Wallace lethal weapon too.
Emperor's New Groove: Me llama, David Spade.
American President: 1600 (Pennsylvania) First Dates.
Jonah: A Veggietales Movie - Animal, Vegetable, Biblical.
I especially enjoyed the ones where I actually was able to make salient points about the film even while making a pun or two. For example . . .
A River Runs Through It: Redford's Reel - Great Casting.
Breaking Away: Cycling down 'Rocky' road.
I mentioned that I used to like fwfr. I still do. I just kind of grew out of it. Writing 657 film reviews in 3 years will do that to a guy. I recently submitted a few new reviews. One that was just accepted was: The Dark Knight (Knight dark. Joker Darker.)
I will leave you today with four word reviews of my 3 favorite movies of all time.
I'll just say the reviews without the titles. The first person ( who is not my wife.) who can give me the correct title of each film will win a bag of ramen soup.
1. Angel gives Christmas absence.
2. Swampdwelling Muppet becomes star.
3. Brother drowns. Mother frowns.
So those are my six words about four words. To see more Six words click here. For more reviews, albeit book reviews longer than 4 words, come back tomorrow for the Book Review Blog Carnival.
Next Time: Book Review Blog Carnival. Didn't I just say that?
