30-Second Review Madness!

BY SDG

Over the last several months, while “Reel Faith” has been on hiatus, my co-host David DiCerto and I have kept our hands in the game a bit by taping 30-second video reviews. I’ve blogged mine as they became available, but to celebrate tonight’s season 2 premiere of “Reel Faith” I’ve collected every single 30-second review I could find done by either David or myself. Here they all are, in alphabetical order. If you’ve missed any, please enjoy them!

And please, let me know what you think.

I’ve had a blast scripting my 30-second reviews in rhyming verse—and occasionally using props and costumes—and I hope it’s made them entertaining to watch. David, on the other hand, has done more traditional reviews—and if you’re looking for the bottom line on a film, his are more informative.

Which approach do you prefer? Would you rather watch me reel off some rhymes, or tell you what I thought of the film? Are they entertaining or self-indulgent? (As a point of contrast, note that my True Grit and Rabbit Hole reviews below are not in rhyming verse.)
