What's the point? -- Four Word Film Review doesn't quite live up to its name - as its FAQ section notes, the site has evolved since the URL was chosen. But if you find haiku too loquacious, this site offers film descriptions and reviews no more than four words. The results are sometimes lame ("Oaf of office" for Primary Colors) and sometimes amusing ("Inigo introduces himself repeatedly" for Princess Bride and "Leto: Farewell to Arm" for Requiem for a Dream).

What to look for --If you sign up for membership, you can post your own reviews and also rank others' reviews to help ensure the actually funny ones get their due.
