Film Haikus

Between doing hard work preparing for finals in the library, going out on the town with my friends, and weeping inconsolably in Frontera while listening to Leona Lewis, I have not had the time to sit down for two hours and enjoy a high-quality film. I imagine you have had this struggle as well, avid reader of the Punchbowl. Thus, as I do with any difficult moment in my life, I turned to the laziest form of poetry to help solve this issue, in a new installment titled Film Haikus!
