Recently I received a book entitled “Four Word Film Reviews”. This book is actually a compilation of short film reviews from the website “Four Word Film Reviews”. The author explains how the idea came to him and how many reviews are now archived on the website. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading these little reviews, most of which are user submitted from random people to the website. So, I thought I would give it a try. In an effort to not copy the idea exactly, I thought I would make this “Five Word Film Reviews”.
