Three-Word Movie Reviews

Three-word movie reviews is a little literary exercise of sorts in which I get to amuse myself by condensing the essence of some of my favorite movies into three words. No more, no less.

Admittedly, these short movie reviews tend to err on the side of overly grandiloquent, but it’s really in jest as a therapeutic form of cerebral self-indulgence or, some might say, hyperintellectual wanking. One thing is for certain, all the movies on this list are truly worth watching.

In addition to the three-word movie review, I also included a rating based on 5-stars as well as the movie’s trailer. The objective is to entice you with as little information as possible, so that you may make up your own untainted opinion about the work. I truly hope you enjoy these movies as much as I did.
