Mr. Right: Movie Review


Combining rom-com with murder is funny but also inane nonsense.
A romantic comedy and a hit-man murder-fest. Comedy, sure, and with Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell, you’ve got the romance, chemistry, and quirky comedy to boot. If anybody can sell this violent, insane, romantic Mr. Right hero, it’s Sam Rockwell. He is fantastic. It’s just that the plot is so far-fetched and complete nonsense, that it’s just too hard to find him or this story interesting. 2015

Directed by: Paco Cabezas

Screenplay by: Max Landis

Starring: Anna Kendrick, Sam Rockwell

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

Annoying feminists vs great original characters.

Neighbors 2 added new characters with a specific purpose: add a message and bring in a new audience. With the subtitle “Sorority Rising”, the message is one of feminism, and with new characters including Chloe Grace Moretz as an atypical sorority girl, the new audience is college-aged girls. 2016
