General, The 140 Character Review

The 140 character review – Welcome Back

I know I said that I was restarting this idea a couple of months ago, and then never actually did. But this time, I really am. I’m going to try and make it a regular Sunday posting on my blog. To give you an idea of what this is all about, click here.

I’ve also popped a few examples from posts gone by, with a link to the original 140 character review post:

Guardians of the Galaxy: Hilarious, space cowboy adventure. A brilliant new leg of the marvel Cinematic universe. Stunning Cinematography, so colourful.

Pictures of Lily Paige Toon: Unrequainted love, check. Love triangle, check. Cold-feet, check,. Inappropriate relationship, why the hell not? Pretty OK!

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone J K Rowling: Magical book in all senses of the word, fantastic opener to an awesome series. I want to be there,I want my letter,I want to be a part of it

Bloodlines (Bloodlines: Book 1) Richelle Mead: Turns out crazy old men can talk sense. Better written than Vampire Academy, less cluttered, and more Adrian ‘Sarcastic God’ Ivashkov

Vampire Academy: Fairly poorly cast and acted, almost unwatchable and not a patch on the book, with Sherwood and Deutch the only vague saving graces

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (The Millennium Trilogy: Book 1) Stieg Larsson: A slow starter but intelligent and entertaining once it gets going. The characters are rich and diverse, well worth the wait

White Collar: Suave, funny, intelligent, attractive, and that’s just Bomer’s Neal Caffrey. A brilliantly crafted show that is severely under the radar

Sherlock :The most irritatingly and brilliantly self-aware, clever, weaving, mind-boggling, and well cast show currently on TV.

Prison Break: Addictive, crazy, thought through genius that becomes a tad convoluted and distinctly less believable as the show progresses

The Hunger Games: Female heroine: check, refreshing story: check, fights to the death: check, fresh new talent: check. What more could you want? Loved it

I hope you get the idea, and you like the posts! Why don’t you give it a go and comment with a tweet length review of your favourite book, film, or TV show?
