Pet Rock Film Festival 3
Round 3 of the Pet Rock Film Festival features everything from a stuttering king to a long-haired Johnny Depp and a country accent on Gwyneth Paltrow.
An eclectic mix, no doubt.
The guidelines for the PRFF are simple; but for you newcomers, we'll spell it out again.
We treat it like a trip to the movie theater. We watch the trailers once and then formulate an opinion about the movie based on what we see, whom we see and other generalizations based on our knowledge and moviegoing preferences. In other words, we pretend we're watching the previews before a feature film.
