I am seeing a movie with the New Times reviewer this afternoon, and we'll "review" it together afterwards. Right now the whole things seems like too much work. But at least it's a movie I want to see: Bowling for Columbine.
I initially thought this "split screen" deal would be two reviews of the same movie, side by side. But it's lamer than that. G writes the intro, explaining the essence of the flick, then there is a little discussion between us:
G: I had a hard time getting into the characters.
Me: Me too.
G: The plot was unbelievable. I felt it was appropriate for a two-year old.
Me: Yeah, me, too. So dumb I almost walked out.
....and so on.
I think the theory is to do an Ebert & Roeper (is that the new guy?) on paper. But the number of words is so limited that almost nothing meaningful can be said.
