The Driver is mega cool

5 second plot: Cowboy, a.k.a. The Driver is a getaway car ... ahem... driver. He's the best in the business. A dirty cop tries to set him up. The result: lots of cool car chases. Now I know where Ryan Gosling got his mad driving skills from.

5 second review: This guy doesn't even wear a seatbelt while driving like a maniac. He's that cool. He doesn't even blink when he's being shot at (while driving like a maniac). He does some weird crazy shit though (crazy '70s shit). At one point he totally destroys a dudes car just because he doesn't want to work with him. You coulda just said so man. And what's up with this weird van the cops are driving?

Mork & Mindy Season 1 Episode 1-3

5 second plot: Mork is an alien who’s been sent to earth to observe us. He ends up living with Mindy who will try to teach him how to blend in. Mork has been to earth before. That previous time he met the Fonz, who tried to teach him about dating. It didn’t work out well.

5 second review: This is the perfect platform for a comedian like Robin Williams. He can do lots of voices and make a big fool of himself. You can tell he's having a blast. The humor is a bit simple (from back in the day) and the visuals did not withstand the test of time. But if you're looking for old school fun, this could be your thing.

IMDb score: 7,2/10

Martin will not scare you to death

5 second plot: Martin drugs women and then drinks their blood. He wants to change his ways so he goes to stay with a cousin who thinks he can help him.

5 second review: This is a vampire movie without all the cool vampire stuff. Martin's got no powers. There is a bit of blood but it looks really ridiculous. Halfway through something interesting happens but other than that this is seriously boring. You could be doing something else entirely while watching this movie and not miss a thing.
