Books, Films, Plays, Food, Drink, Moments, Journeys, Pictures, People, Places, Things... summed up in six lines.
Ok Ok, an explanation. Greg refers to me as a plagiarist because, over a year ago, when I was making my own website and didn't know any html, I used his links page as the basis for mine. I changed a few links (linking to his site in particular), but mostly I kept it the same. Obviously, a bigger man would have left that in the past by now, but Greg is not this man, and prefers to keep reminding me of it, even on this very website. It's ok, I probably deserve it. As for the Orlando Bloom thing, I'm afraid apart from the dodgy half stubble half beard thing, that's just a writer talking in soundbites.
Oh yeah, and as for the rest of the review, I know what you're getting at but I don't see how a format can pander to anything. Six lines is what you make it really: "I have only made this letter rather longbecause I have not had time to make it shorter." That's not plagiarism, that's Pascal.
6LR rocks! If Time Out and Sight & Sound starting reviewing in six lines, the world would be a better place. By the time you get to the end of their reviews, you've forgotten what the bloody hell they're reviewing and have no idea whether they liked it or not.
