Jack (mini-review++)

Screen Shot 2019-08-31 at 6.24.32 PM.png

Review process: two scores assigned: (I don’t believe in Rotten Tomatoes. I just believe in me)

(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so

The mini-review:


acting 7

directing 5

writing 4

effects 5

editing 5

SW score: 26

2 out of 5 octopi

++ Another sad movie with a slight comic veneer. This is simply about a man who is going to live a very short lifespan and that conceit is mined for laughs and syrupy sweet contrived scenes. There is no gold here. Williams has nothing to work with. It’s a premise doomed to depress and no one could have saved it.
