11 Word Reviews: September 2014

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.

———————————————————————————————————————

The Other Woman

Typical rom-com but with great cast who make it work.

Gimme Shelter

Vanessa Hudgens is jaw-droppingly amazing in this moving true story.

Locke

85 minutes of Tom Hardy’s face, not intense as you’d hope.

A Million Ways To Die In The West

Family Guy comedy works well in this western, great cast supporting.

After Hours

Excellent dark comedy that constantly makes you wonder where it’s going.

I, Frankenstein

It’s probably as bad as you think it’s going to be.

Afternoon Delight

Sexy from start to finish, making up for the average drama.

Blue Ruin

Dark and intense with lots of gorey violence; a perfect thriller.

Always

A moving story, incredibly likeable characters, and a fantastic, humouring cast.

The Rock

Proof that Michael Bay can make good films; an entertaining thriller.

The Invention of Lying

Gervais implies that he’s God in this average but original comedy.

Hocus Pocus

A must watch every Halloween, forever an hilarious, nostalgic children’s classic.

Lethal Weapon

A fantastic start to a brilliant franchise with more serious edge.

We Are The Best

A nostalgic coming-of-age musical drama with inspiring, young characters.

Nine Months

Hugh Grant’s hair has never been floppier in decent relationship drama.

Monster House

An ugly animation, would make a better live action family horror.

Damien: Omen II

Takes ages to build up to the horror but decent sequel.

The Omen (1976)

A classic horror with all scares in all the right places.

Bad Neighbours

Funnier than it should be, but high school cringey at times.

How To Train Your Dragon 2

As fun and adventurous as the first, with even more dragons.

All Is Lost

Little dialogue but still an intense watch with a tearful ending.

Away We Go

A brilliant romance with a relatable story and two lovely leads.

Amelia

Hilary Swank gives an impressive lead in this inspiring true story.

Waterworld

Almost an enjoyable adventure because of how bad it is, almost.

The Cold Light of Day

Bruce Willis doesn’t stick around long enough to make good action.

Violet & Daisy

Good darker sub plots, but too juvenile for an assassin thriller.

Lockout

So much potential with Guy Pearce leading, but doesn’t live up.

Underworld: Awakening

Some decent horror and gore, but it’s more boring than tense.
