Iron Man 3, Fast and Furious 6, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Pacific Rim, Elysium

Summer blockbusters
Entertain, but are tiring
And blur together.

Explosions, no plot,
Spectacle, no character
Bad writing abounds

Of the five I saw
Only two put some effort
Towards a decent script

Surprisingly, they
Were Iron Man and Fast 6,
The rest were just noise.

Silver Linings Playbook

A showcase for great
Acting and directing, it
Is full of strong and

Downright surprising
Performances (DeNiro's
Still got it!). Though the

Plot is overly
Hollywood at times, there is
A lot to like here,

Plus any film that
Can redeem Chris Tucker is
Doing something right.

Zero Dark Thirty

The intensity
Of Argo, with the torture
Of late 24.

The politics are
Second to the story, though
It's a bit light on

Character. Who knows
How accurate it is, I
Don't really care. It's

Gripping, unpleasant,
Moving, and will make you think.
All welcome, rare traits.
