Ben has not seen… any films this week

I didn’t make it to the cinema this week. Sorry.

Anyway, I have been thinking about how I am reviewing films and I’m not sure I like it. It needs a little bit more… more. And as less is more, I thought, “Why not give it a bit more more by giving it bit less. That way the bit of less will give it a bit more more, more or less.” Yes?


In other words, I am going to limit the word count of each film review on this blog. Make ’em small, yeah? Specifically, I am going to give a film one word of review for each minute of its run time. 90 minute film, 90 word review. 120 minute film, 120 minute review. Easy.

It’s something of a throwback to the days when David Hartley ran a blog that reviewed films in 75 words, which is nostalgtastic. Except not quite because the word count will vary a bit and instead of loads of talented writers doing the reviews there will be just me.

Oh well. Never mind, you. You’ll get over it.
