The Limerick Review is a film review site with a twist. All reviews take the form of a five-line poem, using the classic limerick structure. Our reviews are short and sharp, making them quick to write, read and refer to friends.
The limerick is a unique form of poetry, which is intended to be fun or comical for the reader. It fits within a strict rhyme scheme, which takes the form of A-A-B-B-A. Here is an example of a limerick review for the 2010 film The Social Network:
While Fincher is yet to upset,
Network is still not his best,
But shouldn’t be nominated,
Eisenberg deserves the credit he gets.
Just seen a film at the French Film Festival? Why not write up a limerick of your own and we’ll feature it on site! They’re quick and easy to write, so get started and send them in.
