Films in Order from Good to Bad, June-July 2010


Recent studies suggest that motion pictures should be rated with more precision than the classic SUPERBLOG!! Five-Keaton Scale affords. Thus, for this post at least, the "MK5" (as it is known in the business) will be retired, and replaced with the supposedly superior "MK10" scale. Just watch:


A Clockwork Orange (1971) (R)


The Shining (1980) (R)
The Dark Knight (2008) (R)

The Book of Eli (2010)
Date Night (2010)
Flatland: The Film (2007)


Twilight (2008)
Swimming Pool - Der Tod feiert mit / The Pool (2001)


And so it ends. I would have written a little something about each film but I have a bus to nowhere to catch. I hope to see you there.

Yrs probably,
KM

These ratings *Keats* me out!

KM said...

That's the finest compliment EVER.

Moocko said...

Or maybe just "Keat" would be the correct grammar. (The Big Keat in Heaven still loves me though!)

Stopping by to check on you KM. I see you are still wit-fully reviewing movies so I think I can assume you are alive and well.

I actually enjoyed this post. How odd. :-)

@moocko
I'm glad you corrected yourself so I don't have to correct you like in The Shining.

@mariam
Thank you for taking pleasure in my stupidities. This is probably the last post of its kind, though. SUPERBLOG!! Dies at Noon!

Somebodyiusedtoknow said...

I've heard these threats before. Superblog will never die. ♥

KM said...

Some might argue that SUPERBLOG!! died a long time ago! (SB: A Ghost of a Shell of a Husk of Its Former Self!) But I was specifically referring to the increasingly boring film posts. No more of them, no no. No!
