I once had an editor tell me my writing was too wordy.
Well, this is for you then.
There’s not enough time in the world to dive deeply into everything that falls into The Spin, so we’re test driving a potential new recurring feature where I will extol enlightening (or not) one word reviews/thoughts on a myriad of stuff.
Think of them as flash reviews. Quick Quips. Free association. Word Up/Word Down.
So, here we go:
Word Up/Word Down v1.0
No – Si.
The new season of The Killing on AMC – Do.
The new season of Dexter on Showtime – Don’t.
- The new series on Showtime, Ray Donovan – Snore.
The one and only season of Hit & Miss on Netflix – Maybe?
Joyce Carol Oates on Twitter – Wha?
The anticipation level for Pacific Rim opening on July 12th – PEE!
Michelle Pfeiffer in the trailers for the new mob comedy, The Family – Hubba (x2)
Any kind of sign that Serena will actually be released – When?
Re-watching Paris, Texas – Peep.
- Is it time to revisit Twin Peaks in its entirety? – Bob?
- Lumosity.com – Bird!
Share your own one word reviews of stuff you’ve recently seen or read in the comments field.
And then let us know what you think!
Might actually turn out to be a mind game—like Jung’s word association 🙂
Here’s my contribution:
– Man of Steel – HiFly
– Mud – Earthy
– The Place Beyond the Pines – Hope
– The Great Gatsby – Leo
– Life of Pi – Pie?
– The Master – Masterstroke!
– World War Z – Zzzzz…
Yeah – I’m thinking more along the lines of the free association than it being actual “one word reviews”.
Fun idea … The following comes to mind:
Match Point – Hot!
To Rome With Love – Operatic
Midnight in Paris – Dreamt
Annie Hall – Lobster
Tree of Life – Breathtaking
On Golden Pond – Pondering
Boardwalk Empire – HighTide
Nurse Jackie – Overdosed
Homeland – Obsessed
Big Bang – PennyWise
