Haiku movie reviews, January 2015

Boyhood

 

Internal Affairs (1990)

Cop flick from long ago

It probably felt dated

When it was released

 

3 Days to Kill (2014)

A dad and killer

Bossed around by a hot chick

Dumb but fun action

 

Alex Cross (2012)

Guy from “Lost”? Creepy

Tyler Perry – he can act!

So where’s the sequel?

 

Strange Days (1995)

Before Y2K

Cops, murder, rape, data discs

A fine mess for Fiennes

 

Pride (2014)

Gays support miners

In Thatcher’s beastly Britain

Wonderful friendships

 

Selma (2014)

Protests need clear goals,

Strategies, tactics, leaders

— True courage routs hate

 

Kon-tiki (2012)

Thor sets out to prove

Islanders came from Peru

— all on one big raft

 

Saving Mr. Banks (2013)

Disney wants Poppins

The author has a conflict

With her long dead dad

 

Boyhood (2014)

Here’s a crushing truth

“I just thought there would be more”

as time marches on
