Haiku Review Is Back
Occasionally beautiful, frequently stupid, almost always nonsensical – we’re back with a whole parade of Haiku Film Reviews from our contributors, our staff (including Blueprint: Film Team!) and our Twitter Friends.
We’ve included Haiku’s for our film of the month: Kingsmen, as well as giving a round-up of our favourite Haiku reviews of the month. We’ll continue churning them out on our Twitter, so if you want some snappy reviews then follow us @blueprintrev
And, if you’re bored of the twitter challenge of 140 characters, try something a little shorter and write your very own Haiku Review; tweet your haiku with #haikureview and @blueprintrev and we’ll retweet them all and put our favourites in a monthly article featured on the site.
FILM OF THE MONTH
KINGSMEN by Kate V (@PossiblyEvenMe)
Really enjoyed it,
With a dopey grin at parts.
Colin Firth’s my fave.
KINGSMEN by Lyndsey Jackson (@LyndseyJJackson)
Colin Firth: Badass!
Fun, old-school, cartoon violence
Gets a yes from me.
KINGSMEN by Darren Bolton (@darrenleebolton)
Violent slice of brilliance
To partner kick-ass.
KINGSMEN by David Brook (@dave_or_did)
Take hardcore violence,
Mix with comic book styling.
Fun shaken not stirred.
TOP 10 (no particular order)
IT FOLLOWS by David Brook (@dave_or_did)
A few flaws and holes
Don’t spoil the clever concept
Or the moody thrills.
EX MACHINA by Darren Bolton (@darrenleebolton)
Poor direction and
Waste great ideas.
PACIFIC RIM by Darren Bolton (@darrenleebolton)
Awful acting and
Script don’t ruin the joy of
Robots v monsters.
WHIPLASH by Darren Bolton (@darrenleebolton)
A stunning and tense
Study of the desire
To reach perfect.
SHAUN THE SHEEP by Darren Bolton (@darrenleebolton)
Aardman’s steep decline
Continues with this bland and
BLUE RUIN by Darren Bolton (@darrenleebolton)
Treads on well worn ground,
But great tension and some fresh
Ideas lift it.
THE APARTMENT by Rebecca Latham (@blueprintrev)
Is there anyone
More charming than Jack Lemmon?
Kevin Spacey tried.
PANIC IN NEEDLE PARK by Damien Beedham (@blueprintrev)
In Panic In Needle Park
Still vital and fresh.
TRANSCENDENCE by Damien Beedham (@blueprintrev)
DO turned helmer
Makes complete mess of first film.
Transcendence is poor.
TOP GUN by Lyndsey Jackson (@LyndseyJJackson)
Planes! Sun-glasses! Men!
“This bogey’s all over me!”
Well oiled man fun!
