As anyone who’s been following my Get Glue profile knows, I spend the weekends devouring a lot of movies. I don’t watch them for artistic merit or originality or hardcore scares. I just want to watch a movie and be relatively entertained.
I almost never review the scads of movies after I watch them because I’m lazy and I consider myself a rather average person with questionable tastes and no one really cares what I think.
Except people kinda do, which is scary and a little intimidating, so to appease people who follow and balance it with my own inherent laziness, I’ll lightly review based of a few factors:
1 – Wow – was I impressed by something within the movie – a scene, a kill, a twist of intuitive thinking?
2 – Wander – Did I find myself getting up to grab snacks, hit the potty, pet the cat, check email. How often and did I pause?
3 – Rewind – The “holy crap I need to see that again!” moment in movies.
4 – Recommend – How was it recommended to me and would I return the favor ?
5 – I don’t have a five.
This afternoon’s movie is Stevie (movie info lifted from Netflix and IMBD so if you have an account, it should take you right there).
