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.
