Reviews of movies.

I've actually been working on a best-of for last year, but it's stalled. I've also got some notes in the works for further reflection on "weird girls" and girls you should date (no, I swear, I will). But I've also been watching a lot of movies lately, and I want to say a few words about them before I forget what they are. (Which happens on a distressingly regular basis.) So:

The Guard
Irish countryside:
Drugs and swearing and Goncharov
and Gleason are love.

The Departed
Saggy plotting kills
good men. Bodies line the streets;
Boondock Saints 's better.

J. Edgar
Spying on people
and going to the races make
Gay Edgar lonely.

He's Just Not That Into You
Baltimore looks cool:
strong female cast deal with men;
amusing and kind.

Starter for 10
McAvoy leaves beach
for uni; Parties, Sherlock
make life a fun hell.

  1. Yeah, there comes a point in the middle of Jan when work on the "My reflections on the previous year" post loses its momentum.

    But I liked your haikus. Poor Gay Edgar! I feel a bit sorry for him.

    I dunno about The Guard, though - it felt a little "If you liked In Bruges you'll luuurrrve The Guard!" to me. Funny moments, but it never added up to much, like In Bruges did... yes, comparisons are odious, I know.
