Total Drek One Sentence Movie Reviews: Part Three!

Welcome back to another installment of my exceedingly unpopular feature that rates movies according to a mysterious set of criteria that even I don't fully understand. If this isn't what you had in mind for today's blog post, that's too bad because I'm the one who puts crap here five days a week so I pretty much get to make that call.

Let's begin!

There Will Be Blood

Run Time: 158 minutes.

Price: Available from Amazon.com for $15.49, plus shipping and handling.

Genre: Western/Character Study

One sentence review: What happens when you mix a brooding western with the creepy music left over from 2001: A Space Odyssey.











Star Trek

Run Time: 127 minutes.

Price: Available from Amazon.com for $16.99, plus shipping and handling.

Genre: Science Fiction Adventure

One sentence review: You don't need a coherent plot as long as you have enough FX and shiny control handles!*












Junebug

Run Time: 106 minutes.**

Price: Available from Amazon.com for $10.99, plus shipping and handling.

Genre: Indie... um... character study?

One sentence review: All the boredom and awkwardness of a family reunion, now in a convenient portable format!








It should perhaps be noted that my taste in movies is now, and has always been, somewhat iffy.


* Sorry Slag! I know you loved it, but much as I wanted to, I just couldn't quite enjoy it.

** Interestingly, when watching it, "Junebug" felt like it was the same length as "There Will Be Blood." Given the differences in their actual run times, I think this is a point in favor of the latter.

Two from our Netflix queue:

Adventureland - Shitty jobs are for a summer, but awkward and geeky are *forever*.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop - The King of Queens meets and falls down hilariously on Mallrats.

Sweetie, you can just tell your readers that I picked out two of those three movies - it's only fair. However, your taste in movies might still be described by some as "iffy." ; )

Love,
Your Sainted Wife

P.S. FHR's SO - nice!!!
