I was reading an old article on slate.com entitled
The Best Writers at the New York Times They write better by writing shorter.
By Jack Shafer

wherein it is written: "Rivaling the Times for succinctness and cheek are the Web smarty-pants who contribute to the Four Word Film Review "

Web smarty-pants now that I must check out, so I checked in about a month ago

Saw th site listed as a "favorite waste of time" in Webuser magazine in 2002.

As for FWFR efforts on Truly Madly Deeply, Lamhasuas got it right with Truly badly tweely.

Now you're not going to believe this but my cat, Tigga, was walking across the keyboard and somehow, by pure chance, pressed "www.fwfr.com" and then pressed the return key.


I knew you wouldn't believe me.

Yeah, but the weird thing is that she's writing them in alphabetical order.

This has been asked before, and I truly cannot remember. But the de-centrifugal force worked on me instantly. Thanx, benj!

I was on a site that had odd news stories of the week. They had a special colum for odd web sites of the day. FWFR. Reviewing movies in only 4 words or Less. I just had to check it out. I was amazed by the great writing. I thought I could also do this. So then I became hooked, THis when the site was a poor little unnoticed site. Not like it has become today. TO this day I dont think I even measure up to the great writers of FWFR. But Im still workin at it.

I'd be more impressed if Tigga put them in chron order since no one is sure of the order. (and threw in the poetry too)

I honestly cannot remember where I first heard of this site. But I do know that last summer, me and my friends went to see the absolutely unwatchable "The Covenant," which my friend Mike pithily described as "Dragon Ball 90210." And I thought, hey, that'd be a good thing to submit to the Four Word Film Review. I only had a vague idea of what the FWFR was, I'd never explored it, I have no idea what deep recesses of memory I pulled it out of.

I submitted "Dragon Ball 90210" in my friend's name. It never got accepted. I started submitting some things in my own name too.

An article in The Toronto Star highlighted the site in late October, 2003. I joined in early November and in the next three weeks these reviews were approved.

I don't remember how I got to it the first time, I know I submitted some reviews anonymously and left. I completely forgot about it. Then about six or so months later (I'm guessing here) I was searching the web for info about Teen Wolf and this site popped up. I registered and started writing. About a week into it, I realized I'd been here before and submitted but couldn't remember what. LOL

I was running a google search for some movie or another as I wanted to read more about it than the IMDB had. I chanced upon FWFR from google and spent a couple days laughing and the rest since then, writing.

I've been on a couple of review sites and some forums cropped up from them by a few of their members. On one of those forums someone asked if there was a satire review site and one woman mentioned this place. I checked it out and now I can't quit.

Is that you Tigga? OK I'm impressed. Tell your master he's one of those Web smarty-pants
