The Psychotronic One-Line Movie Review
and
Random Movie Selection Page

For those that don't want to read movie reviews all day or want something new to watch


Welcome to my one-line movie review site. Technically, most of the reviews are more than one line but the point is, they're short. If you're like me, trying to gain some insight into a movie shouldn't require 10 minutes reading a dozen paragraphs of blah, blah, blah. So, I've begun listing the movies that I've seen, beginning with January of 2017, and providing you with just a couple lines that will give you some idea of what I thought of that film.

Each of the listings have the IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes ratings, as well as my own personal rating. I think you'll find that my personal rating is, quite often, higher than the usual reviewers and critics. Perhaps that's because I don't try to dissect a film to death - even though I've studied film - and I watch movies for escapist entertainment ...and I'm easily entertained.

If you'd like more information on a movie, clicking the movie title will take you directly to the movie's IMDb page. I've also included a quick link to a trailer of the film (if available).

I'm always up for movie recommendations. Send me a note and let me know what you'd like to see a review of and I'll be glad to check it out. If you have opinions about the movies you've seen, feel free to drop by the Submission Page and I will be glad to include your reviews on the web-site.

If you're not sure what to watch tonight, try my random movie recommendations. This will take you to a random location on the site with a couple movies to choose from. Those that submit reviews will have their movies included so send in reviews of your favorites and help enlarge the list!

NOTE: The "Best of the Month" award may not be the highest rated movie of the month but rather the highest rated movie I saw for the first time during that month.
