Introducing AMWAM (As Many Words As Minutes) Film Reviews
The idea for this concept came about on New Years Eve when my husband and I raided the local Redbox for our New Year’s Party of Two (Yes, we are wild). Normally, we dress up, make some kind of fancy dinner, dance and have some champagne at home followed by a late-night movie. Well, this year I am pregnant and our fridge was broken, so I got some low-prep appetizers and ingredients for mock-champagne (will post on my food section) along with three movies of 2014 that we hadn’t seen: The Giver, Left Behind (the remake) and Magic in the Moonlight.
It had been awhile since I had a movie marathon, and the contrast between these diverse films (and our enjoyment of them) left me wanting to share about with friends and on my blog. However, I also wanted to keep it short and to the point. Movie reviews can be kind of daunting without a word limit. Too much pressure often means it doesn’t happen! So I had a thought: Why not make the word limit the same as the number of minutes in each film? Thus, I give you, AMWAM (pro-nounced “Am-Wham”) Movie Reviews. These will include my brief, honest, and non-spoilery opinion to help you in your film-choosing. Keep an eye out for my AMWAM Reviews of movies recently released at theatres, Redbox or even Netflix!
