Two and a Half Men Season 9

5 second plot: Well, Charlie is dead. Long live Walden. Alan gets serious with Lindsey. Her son is Jake's best friend. These two boneheads are as dumb as it can get. Walden divources and gets serious a bit later with British Zoey. And somewhere along the line Walden finds out his brother is a gorilla.

5 second review: It is brilliantly funny again. Ashton Kutcher is the best. It is kind of a strange situation with Alan not being family and living in Walden's house. The throwing up episode is a classic. Tears in my eyes.

IMDb score: 7,2/10

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 4 is filled with disturbances

5 second plot: The 4th season starts with a big underwater battle. Then C3PO and R2D2 have some adventures on their own. Followed by a disastrous mission on a dark planet due to a jedi general gone mad. Then slave handlers piss Anakin off. And he even gets more angry when someone kills Obi-Wan. The season ends with Darth Maul and his brother vs Obi-Wan (he's not really dead you know) and Ventress.

5 second review: There's some cool new stuff, awesome warriors, great light-saber fights and space-battles but the best part is seeing Anakin lose it. We all know how where he's headed. Grievous pops up a lot since he's a great villain. Jar Jar is still annoying. And there's a lot of 'I feel a disturbance in the force' going about.

IMDb score: 7,9/10

Laugh at My Pain is too emotional

5 second plot: The origin story of comedian Kevin Hart plus his stand up comedy show 'Laugh at My Pain' and a sketch where he and his crew rob a bank.

5 second review: He is a really funny guy so this is of course a really funny movie. But there are also a lot of emotions. And that's not necessary for me. But it is probably stuff that needed to be said.

IMDb score: 6,8/10

Warrior is not normal

5 second plot: Two brothers enter a mixed martial arts contest where the world's best fighters will compete. They both had a very tough childhood with an abusive alcoholic father. The youngest one, Tommy, is like a raging bull in the ring. The oldest one, Brendan, is a school teacher in real life. He needs the price money, or his family will lose their house.

5 second review: This movie is so good, it's not normal. The fights will get your heart pumping, the emotions will get your heart bleeding. Everyone involved is amazing. And Tom Hardy even tops those amazing performances. You can almost feel his anger. This is a straight A.
