As a regular contributor to 11 Word Review, this is a monthly post to archive all of the 11 word reviews of films that I have submitted throughout this month.
A surprisingly good thriller with decent twists and an excellent Willis.
Sleeping With the Enemy
You can’t help but love Julia Roberts in this tense drama.
Moretz is brilliant, the story’s original, and pacing keeps you interested.
Fairly boring despite its greusome premise, but alot of recognisable faces.
Ayoade’s brilliant style of film-making suits this dark comedy perfectly.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Technically marvellous, combining live film noir action and hilarious animated comedy.
Tim Burton’s best film. Sweet and emotional but also creepily dark.
Sofia Coppola tells somewhat mediocre story with such colour and personality.
A poor werewolf film with very little to keep you interested.
Disappointing second half but not bad, the tension dies down somewhat.
Berberian Sound Studio
Not a lot goes on whilst the plot promises dark secrets.
A disturbing atmosphere lingers in the air but it’s very amateur.
Has its moments but not enough happens. Misses out on potential.
Too much torture and violence when plot doesn’t call for it.
Water For Elephants
Fantastic actors, strong performances, good story, and a surprisingly enjoyable drama.
Another classic early 90s sci-fi action, and a fantastic sequel.
New In Town
Not the cheesy rom-com you would expect from the poster.
Mission Impossible 2
Better than the first. Good action, humour, romance and character development.
The Motel Life</strong
Tries to be serious and bleak but it doesn’t come across.
28 Days Later
A zombie apocalypse at its best. Boyle handles the genre perfectly.
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Tim Burton and Johnny Depp at their gloomiest, goriest, and musical-est.
A fun animated sci-fi adventure that younger audiences will enjoy.
Inventing The Abbots
Generic plot but all star cast make for a decent drama.
The Wolf of Wall Street
Entertainingly outrageous, an energetic pace, buzzing from one extreme to another.
A brilliantly complex and clever mystery that Nolan slowly unravels backwards.
King Kong (1976)
oor special effects and action but better than the recent remake.
Brilliant filming style, but difficult to care about characters and story.
The Thomas Crown Affair (1999)
Brilliant opening few scenes. A decent and, at times, sexy thriller.
One of the weakest Ashley Judd crime thrillers with obvious twist.
Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief
Fun Greek mythology for younger generations, but weakened for everyone else.
Fun, gorey, and fantastic characters. One of the best zombie films.
– 8/10 – Confusing at times, but a powerful science fiction with hinted horror.
A great fast-paced thriller, with George Clooney at his best.
Great chemistry between Wilson and Vaughn, making this better than average.
Could have been an intense thriller if Reacher was cast better.
Food, family, and comedy mixed up. Yummy, heart-warming and funny.
The days when Adam Sandler was funny… only in small doses.
A Christmas rom-com to enjoy all year. Lovely, likeable characters.
Guardians of The Galaxy
Marvel at its most fun. Great characters and alot of laughs.
Better than expected. Like Gladiator with Jon Snow and a volcano.
The Book of Eli
A desperate and powerful dystopia with a twist you won’t SEE.
A weird, lackluster sex drama that goes where you’d never expect.
Girl Most Likely
Kristen Wiig provides awkward comedy in decent drama about growing up.
