Haiku Movie Reviews

I know it’s been done (but not by me). I’ve seen some movies lately, so here are the reviews, in haiku, for you and you and you.

Funny People directed by Judd Apatow
You, Adam Sandler,
are dramatic and funny,
impressive even

The Earrings of Madame de… directed by Max Ophuls
The diamond earrings
of the shallow and repressed
merit intense gaze

Ponyo directed by Hayao Miyazaki
Ponyo is a fish
who wants to become human
The ocean pulsates

The Brothers Grimm directed by Terry Gilliam
The evil queen combs her hair

Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired directed by Marina Zenovich
Polanski’s court case
was a media circus
and he’s still guilty

The Last King of Scotland directed by Kevin MacDonald
Playing a monster
Forest Whitaker lures us
down dark, ancient roads
