reviews

m. werneburg, 1997

I started writing two-line movie reviews on New Year's day of '97, and carried on for a decade or so.  But in 2011 I scotched them, because there were only so many ways of saying, "Oh gods, that was a waste of time." Also, with two kids who has time for movies. It's just as well; A.I. sent me on a huge rant, I can only imagine what I'd have written about Prometheus. (All that promise....)

I also decided—in early 2009—to permanently remove my album and theater reviews due to their poor quality and inconsistency. I just don't know what I'm talking about.
