Movie Review Haikus

Not all films I see
can get a full review. So,
I turn to haikus. 

Five films. Five haikus. 5 x 7 x 5 syllables per line. I've also included, for the first time, my score for each film out of 5 stars. You can find all my film scores at my film journal. (See past movie haikus herehere, and here). Enjoy:

Captain America: The Winter Solider (2014, dir. Joe and Anthony Russo)
Thrilling action with
Moral gravitas makes this
Marvel's best sequel.
(3.5 out of 5 stars)

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014, dir. Marc Webb)
A perfect Parker
Performance in action-packed,
Shoddily-written film.
(2.5 out of 5 stars)

Godzilla (2014, dir. Gareth Edwards)
Surprisingly fun,
But, more Cranston and Binoche!
Hey, it's Vancouver!
(3 out of 5 stars)

Philomena (2013, dir. Stephen Frears)
Two souls embark on
A (spiritual) journey to
Find her son--and God.
(4.5 out of 5 stars. A new favourite)


The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014, dir. Wes Anderson)
Quirky, with dry wit;
Colorful, ornate design.
The most Anderson.
(4 out of 5 stars)
