If you’re frustrated with the Hollywood plot factory that churns out one formulaic box office ”hit” after the next, you can corroborate your theories here, where film story lines are compacted down to a couple of lines to protect you from ”torture by bad movie.” Interestingly, Movie-a-Minute (part of the Rink Works entertainment site; www.rinkworks.com/movieaminute/) doesn’t only deconstruct the good-bad (Wild Things: ”There is a plot twist. Then there is a plot twist…. The End. Then there is a plot twist…”), it also attacks the really good (All About Eve: ”People in showbiz turn MEAN”). B+
