A part of my continuing film education is to catch as many different kinds of movies as I can. Netflix makes this even easier these days (one of my favorite evening past times is to “Netflix and chill”. But I still venture out to the theater at least three times a month, especially for those big summer movies that aren’t the same months later on TV. And in these “dog days” where serious thought feels as sluggish and muggy as the soggy humid air here in the Washington, DC area, I thought I’d do something different in the blog this week.
So here’s a little writing exercise– a game I invite you to join me in. In only FIVE words review the #summermovies you’ve seen. Puns and bon mots aren’t my strong suit (I’m a long form kinda gal!), but I’ll get it started and look forward to your improvements. So, in order of what I’ve seen from May2018 through August 10, 2018.
Book Club – Older women revive DOA script
Hereditary – Heads Up for Weird Ending!
Isle of Dogs – Never Trust Catpeople, Kids/Dogs Say (Cheated a bit on that one!)
Jurassic World – Same Old Sequel Coming 2020
The Incredibles 2 – Super-sheroes Prove Men Are Clueless
Ocean’s Eight – Diamonds, Nice. Payback? Priceless
Mission Impossible: Fallout – Cruise Stunts Save World…Again
Ant Man and the Wasp – Bad Suit: Small, Big, Super-small
The Island – Meteor Turns Loser into Hero w/Subtitles
That’s my list so far… but I’m hoping to catch The Meg and BlackKKlansman in the next couple of weeks.
