Seinfeld Season 7 is on cruise control

5 second plot: Spoilers ahead! George is getting married. He (almost immediately) wants out but he's afraid to confront his fiancee. At the end of the season she dies because of the poisonous  glue on the envelopes of the cheap ass wedding invitations George insisted on. George also blows a date with Marisa Tomei, who is crazy about his looks (really).

5 second review: The show is on cruise control, everything is running smoothly. We get a couple of great new characters (like Kramer's lawyer), some existing ones take center stage a couple of times (Newman) and then there's of course: Marisa Tomei with a great cameo.

IMDb score: 8,9/10
Our score: 9/10

La Haine is seriously over the top

5 second plot: We follow three young guys living in the not so friendly suburbs of Paris over the course of their day: hanging out, having fun, bothering other people and getting their asses kicked (mainly by the police). One of them found a gun the previous day. That's asking for trouble, of course.

5 second review: This movie is really low budget, but nicely done. Very funny at times. And also a reality check: hate only creates more hate is the central message. But the madly over the top acting got on my nerves. Or is this simply that sometimes annoying French energy bursting out.

IMDb score: 8,1/10
Our score: 5/10
