After the haiku of a couple of weeks ago, some more succinct reviews – this time in rhyming couplets – of films I watched purely for the entertainment factor during breaks from working on the novel and probably wouldn’t have written several-hundred word reviews of even if I didn’t the manuscript to work on.
Not included are two recent releases – ‘Paul’ and ‘True Grit’ – which I enjoyed as much as anything I’ve seen on the big screen for a while. I’ll post full write-ups on these two next week.
CARRY ON SERGEANT
This first film proved amusing but
Things soon descended into smut.
A dude who’s great on SNL
Makes big screen debut: goes to hell.
It could have been a big old mess
But for Amy Adams’ awesomeness.
THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG
The story’s fun, the tunes are hot.
Disney does stereotypes? Surely not!
Jet Li and The Stat team up with Sly,
A fuckload of shit gets blown sky-high.
