    When you write, do you try to include at least one quotable one-liner? I just wrote my first movie review, and I wasn’t really shooting to get a quotable phrase in, but one (“a sappy, formulaic, fat-free chick flick”) just came out. I feel kind of skeezy for it. hahah.

    Colin, I hope the whole thing is quotable. [​IMG]

    No, I don't try to manufacture one snappy line. I find it's best to write what you feel and what best explains your opinion rather than banging out nifty poster quotes. If you produce one, that's great, but speaking for myself, I wouldn't set out to craft a quotable line.

    Same here. My intention is to review the movie, not become another "quote whore". [​IMG]
