May’s 5 Word Movie Reviews

May was a slow movie month for me.  I was underwhelmed by what I saw.   If you’ve seen any of the movies leave me your 1-5 words in the comments and I’ll add them to the post.  Or, if you are feeling ambitious and want to do this on your own blog leave me a link in the comments and I’ll add it to the bottom of the post.   Of course,  you can always just comment

I’ve noted airplane movies because I’m not sure a nervous flyer like me should be completely trusted to give an accurate grade.

Tony Stark is pictured center wearing a smart suit, against a black background, behind him are is the Iron Man red and gold armor, and the Iron Man silver armor. His friends, Rhodes, Pepper, are beside him and below against a fireball appears Ivan Vanko armed with his energy whip weapons.(2010. Cast – Robert Downey Jr. Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Samuel L. Jackson)  Grade B-

Pretty Decent Sequel.  Liked Rourke.

Over the top action sequel.  (Heather)

Tony too full of himself.  (Kay)

Sam Rockwell really rocks, baby.  (Tony)


A pale young man fills the top left of the poster, standing over a brown-haired young woman on the right, with the word "twilight" on the lower right.(2008. Cast – Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson)  Grade B-

Liked Same As Book = Okay

Sparkly vampire with sullen teen. (Stephanie)

Imagined Edward differently – glitter anyone? (Kay)

Making sparkly vampires cool, obviously.   (Tony)


(2010. Cast- Amy Adams, Matthew Goode)  Airplane Movie Grade C+

Needed a Little More Heart.

Adams is cute, mediocre rom-com.  (Heather)


(2010. Cast- Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel, Danny DeVito, Angelica Huston) Airplane Movie Grade C

Wanted To Like It More

Boring. Hit fast-forward alot! (Nolatari)

Almost embarrassed for the actors.  (Heather)

  2. It always amazes me how much you actually learn about the movies from your 5 word reviews.

    • I liked the first one more, but Mickey Rourke was an awesome bad guy!

  4. I liked Leap Year, I think I liked the setting more. It was a gorgeous location, Scotland right?

    • The Ireland setting was great since we were flying by it when the movie was showing on the plane 🙂

  5. I love Kristen Bell, but I hope she starts doing movies other than romantic comedies. She has the talent to do more.

    • I think so too. I like her, but this movie didn’t do much for her.

  6. Iron Man and Twilight look really good! I’ll have to get them when they come out on Blu-ray.

  7. I really liked Leap Year for some reason. I’d give it a B+. But that’s the only one on your list I’ve seen.

    • It’s possible that I would have liked it more if I had watched it in my living room on the couch. I’m pretty sure the bumpy plane ride didn’t help me like the movie more. I like both of the leads!

  8. I thought Leap Year was cute, but it fell flat a bit…a bit too predictable, but overall all right. Twilight??? Rolling the eyes!!!

    Comment by Heather | June 2, 2010 | Reply

    • Ah, yes, but I rolled my eyes a lot while reading Twilight, so I thought the book and movie and book went together perfectly 🙂

  9. I haven’t seen any of these, but it doesn’t look like I’m missing much.

  10. Of those, I want to see Leap Year.

  11. For Twilight —

    imagined Edward differently – glitter anyone?

    I think my imagined Edward was better and not so cheesy. My Bella was not so pretty and more clumsy. Jacob odd here, but better in later movies.
