Dressed to Kill has its moments

5 second plot: A woman is brutally murdered in an elevator. Another woman catches a glimpse of the killer. And now the killer is after her.

5 second review: This is a really slow movie filled with unnecessary scenes. Probably to cover up the fact that there isn't very much to tell. But the core material (the 20 mts of 'real' story) is very good: suspenseful, sexy and shocking.  It's probably a must see classic, but for a modern audience it looks a bit weird. Like the giant bush (80's style) in the first scene.

IMDb score: 7,1/10

Airplane! is off the charts funny

5 second plot: Ted Striker runs after the love of his life. She's a stewardess and he follows her on a plane to Chicago. The pilot and co-pilot of the plane get sick. And now it's up to Ted to save the day. He knows how to fly a plane, but due to a war-trauma, he's too afraid to try.

5 second review: The jokes come at such high speed, they are slapped around your ears one after another. They are all outrageously stupid, but brought with amazing straight faces. I can watch this movie all day non-stop and still cry with laughter at the end of the day. This is a true comedy classic.

IMDb score: 7,8/10
