(a little something on the side: you can now read this trash on F-book)

Two-Sentence Movie reviews now has a FACEBOOK page!

Big whoop!

Kung Fu Panda 2

While largely enjoyable, the sequel is less fun & more violent than the original, and the slight design changes leave some of the characters looking at times maquette-ish.

The movie's very final moment leaves things wide open for yet another sequel--a very unnecessary sequel.

African Cats

DisneyNature's annual Earth Day release, this is the classic "nature show," in that the viewers find themselves rooting for either the hunter or the hunted.

As I do during many of thes movies, I constantly found myself wondering, "how'd they get that footage?"

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

I was kind of looking forward to seeing this fourth "Pirates" movie, having heard that it was shorter than the others.

Unfortunately, I don't think it was at all short enough.


In the world of raunchy comedies, "Bridesmaids" dances all over "The Hangover," and certainly anything by Will Ferrell.

There, I said it.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules

The first movie made me laugh so hard, of course I wanted to see the second.

The second is still packed with embarassing fun, and best yet, makes me want to read the books.


Wasn't even sure I wanted to see it: the comic had never appealed to me, and I always find Portman & Hopkins to be OTT in their "anything for the money" roles.

Once I got over snickering at "ice giants," I found the movie to be, surprisingly, much better than I could have dared hope.

The bad news is there were some holes, some things I thought were pretty major that never seemed to be satisfactorily explained.

The good news is, I don't think there will be a sequel to explain all this.

Source Code

This guy can do anything--including fly backward through the holes in this film's logic!

You know, I could mock this film up & down for days--but it's still consistenly entertaining, and certainly kicks Inception's ass.


It opens & closes like Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room.

Inbetween, there's a laugh here & there, but not much else of value.

Barney's Version

He's coaching a high school wrestling team, and he's wrestling with some serious personality issues--and getting schooled.

Get it?
