All Mediocre Things Come In Three...

I know. It's been a long time since you read some good(?) movie reviews in haiku form. Never fear, they're baaaaaaack.

Lots of sequels this summer, and as you know, not all 3's are bad (see "Return of the Jedi" and "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban", to name a couple), but some are not as spectacular as their predecessors. Cases in point...

"Spider-Man 3"
Venom scared me more
In the comic book stories
Spidey 2 was better

"Shrek 3"
This franchise is
Done like dinner
Eat me, Gingey

"Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World's End"*
Ho ho ho and a
Bottle of dumb
(But we still love Jack)

I am looking forward to "Transformers" (as long as the bad robots aren't too scary) and am practically chomping at the bit for "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix".

Rylee and I are, as always, more than meets the eye.

Eat your watermelon, kids!
