About The Show Edit

2WordReviews was created as a quick and easy to produce review show for movies as they appear in theaters in contrast to the more lengthy discussions of movies watched at home with Instant Discussions. This easy to produce nature of the show was a response to the complexities of Acula at the Cinemas that made it difficult to produce quickly. The two words are usually written poetically in that they represent more than just a two word sentence, but rather the definition or connotation of the words often add to the review beyond the surface meaning. In addition, earlier reviews include music that often adds further criticism to the movies, however sometimes the song is just a reference to the movie or a joke.

All reviews are written by John Reynolds.
