Michael Sauter’s “Film Review: Cloudy” Is as Clear as a Summer Sky

In response to Michael Sauter’s 823‑word review of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 on Film Journal International

By ,

It takes a certain amount of skill to wring 823 words out of a topic as light as Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, but Michael Sauter proves himself up to the task with “Film Review: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.” He does an admirable job, too, never letting the review get tedious and never indulging in groan-inducing food puns.

Sauter draws on his knowledge of the original Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and uses a comparison to it as a starting point for his review. From there, he engages in just enough recap to get the readers up to speed and lubricate their gullets for the main course: his astute observations on the strengths and weaknesses of this Cloudy sequel.

The layout of the review makes it easy to read it from start to finish without interruption. There is one image embedded in the review itself, and it is a small. It’s basically all smooth sailing from start to finish with a clean background and a font that does not strain the eyes.

Sauter is a critic who really knows how to make the most of what he’s given to work with.  Film Review: Cloudy puts a smart spin on a silly topic and proves to be an entertaining and informative review.
