Gattaca is too artificial

5 second plot: In a not too distant future Vincent has taken the identity of Jerome. Vincent wants to go to space. But he is not ‘superior’ enough to be even taken into consideration. He has to go through serious lengths to get to where he wants to be.

5 second review: The sci-fi-part of this movie is not all that impressive. It might be a futuristic world, but we don’t get to see very much of it. This world feels empty and artificial. What I do like very much about this movie are the people that are in it. The characters have been worked out really well and the acting is top shelf.

IMDb score: 7,8/10
Our score: 6/10

Seinfeld Season 9 isn't an ideal goodbye

5 second plot: George starts working for a company where nobody cares about anything. It's a perfect fit. The gang goes to a wedding in India. Reversed. Kramer's coffee table book is optioned for a movie. He retires. Elaine eats a 60 year old cake, worth $29000. Jerry starts sleeping with his maid. But then she stops cleaning. So what's he paying her for?

5 second review: There are a couple of legendary (crazy bonkers) episodes in this final season that you just have to see. But you can skip the final two episodes. Their added value is 0. It must have been a lot of fun for the creators, but not for the fans.

IMDb score: 8,9/10

Crash is pretty sick

5 second plot: A guy gets in a serious car accident. He is left scarred emotionally and physically. He channels his emotions sexually, together with other victims that are going through the same stuff. In doing so, he hopes to improve his strange sexual relationship with his wife. Or something like that.

5 second review: This is some weird and sick shit. There is not a lot of fun in it. It felt awkward most of the time. Some people will think this movie is fantastic, but I am not one of those people.

IMDb score: 6,3/10
