Movie Haiku - by René of Twincruiser

Here is where favorite films and classic movie masterpieces meet the powerful form of Japanese short poetry. Although my method of haiku is a bit bastardized compared to the more spiritually significant way of making these poems, I still hope you are able to get a kick out of them. Oh...and if you don't know what haiku is, I suggest you look it up on the internet, pronto! You won't understand these unless you've seen the movies so check them out as well...that is, if you haven't done so already. All sway to the strength of summary!
