Three sentence movie reviews: Stop-loss

“Sweetheart, this movie has Ryan Phillippe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt AND Channing Tatum, why I have I not seen this before?” said I.  It also has Abbie Cornish, who I like despite not liking her character in

Bright Star

.  This was a pretty good movie, full of drama and tough choices, marking this as a “good” MTV films production.*

*Matt thinks he hates MTV Films, but I argue they can make some darn good movies when they set their minds to it.  Check out a

list of their films

.  Despite the presence of

Jackass 2.5

and the like, there are some darn good movies on that list.  They are especially good a capturing moments in adolescence.  (

Varsity Blues

,

Election

Napoleon Dynamite

.)

Also, I really like this movie poster.  Well done, unknown designer.
