A MASSIVE DVD review catch-up

For various reasons I will neither explain nor excuse, I have been extremely remiss in my DVD reviews. Given that I am about to go on vacation (mostly to New Orleans), this will likely be my last post for a few days. So I'd like to catch us up.

In the interest of space, and of time, and of challenging myself as a writer, I shall confine each review to a sentence of 10. words or less.

Aliens in the Attic: Would collect dust on my shelf.

Angels & Demons: The demons win, by a horn. C+

Bruno: The shock has worn off, Sacha. C

Food Inc: Viewing may trigger fasting. 

Four Christmases: Two great stars + lame screenplay = barely passable. C+

Funny People: Too long, but NOT as bad you've heard. B+

GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra:  GI No: The Fall  of Coherence

I Love You Beth Cooper: What happened, Chris Columbus?

My Sister's Keeper: Cameron Diaz = mom? Does not compute. 

Santa Buddies: WHY???!?!?!?!?!

Shorts: I take it Rodriguez has done better.

Star Trek: Re-energized the franchise Can't wait for the sequel. A

The Taking of Pelham 123: Not bad, but the orginal was better. B

The Ugly Truth: This got a better Cinemascore than Funny People. Wither taste? C

 Up: Two thumbs. A+

Food Inc: Food for thought, informative and well presented

It may seem like a waste to do this more often, unless you want to keep it in reserve for the movies not saying too much about, but it's very entertaining to read such a list of tightly contained reviews. I like it!

The Fantastic Mr. Fox: Absolutely delightful, especially for fans of the writer and director.

I concur on Mr. Fox. Saw it Saturday. A mite light emotionally but VERY funny.
