For the first post of June, I'm introducing a new feature to SFTC. I'd like to call it a recurring feature but who knows if I'll do it again. (Hasn't worked out so well for Stuff I'm Starting to Like / Stuff I Still Don't Get, which I inaugurated back in January and have yet to bring back.)
The new idea: Six-word movie reviews! First up are two current releases. The theme here is brevity, so let's get right to 'em.
1. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull: Jones still cool. Story mostly disappointing.
2. Sex and the City: Didn't see it. Seems very pink.
Clearly I'll need to see some more theatrical releases if SWMR is going to last. But -- anyone else agree with this? -- there are approximately no movies out right now that I give a rat's ass about. I've seen Iron Man and Sarah Marshall (both great), and I would have gone to a show on Saturday night but couldn't find anything remotely interesting in the papers. Now might be a good time for Buck Henry to get going on that Graduate sequel.
Hey, how 'bout another SFTC complimentary free download gift giveaway!?!? First person to identify the movie that featured Buck discussing that very idea wins a free iTunes download. And you pick the song. What could be better?
