The Movie Slot Machine Speed Round: 100 Minutes or Less!

Even though I jimmied June's Movie Slot Machine to produce results that conformed to a limit on running times — with the intent of giving me more time between films to work on the reviews posted to this website — I responded with a more than commensurate increase in laziness, finally wrapping up the month's content several days past the end-of-month deadline. Oh, the folly of social engineering!
