Haiku Review

nineteen ninety one
centuries in movie years
time has not been kind

awful CGI
makes me wince; too much of it
bored ten minutes in

Tokyo is crumbling
a toxic space rock raises
water and the dead

Battle Girl Kyoko!
her mission: save the people
dressed in tight leather

look out for zombies
an insane army captain
roaming bandits too

attention growing
some but not nearly enough
to get me to care

clumsy attempts at
cultural commentary
deep as a puddle

sexy battle gear
and cardboard caricatures
do not make a film
